Amazing!!!! The cast is absolutely fantastic- the children are so talented! Great story line, music, dancing and production! I wondered how they would stage the miners strikes but they did it wonderfully by juxtaposing the strikes against the ballet classes. You won't know what I mean unless you go and see it!


It is really inspiring!!! I really enjoyed it. The kids are so brilliant. I will recommend it to my friends.

Fabulous. Fantastic range of talent from all the cast, from the singing and dancing to the authentic geordie accents.


never could imagine I'd like the musical better than the movie. Outstanding just perfect! the kids were amazing and the scenario is just ideal for the show! Couldn't enjoy more

Norma Ayvazian

Outstanding! Loved it! One of the best I have ever seen. Laughed and cried at the same time. Excellent performance from all the artists and a huge "well done" to Billy performed by the so cute boy named Mitchell Tobin. Definitely a must see!

I love Billy Elliot story, but having seen it in this production made me cry and laugh histerically all the play...The Elton John songs and the Elliot Hannah performance are absolutely enchanting. The boy is the cutest boy in the world, sharing the scenes with his fantastic Dad Deka Walmsley and his amazing teacher Anna Jane Casey. I don´t know how the cast could be so touch provoking like this...Write this review makes me remember and cry again!!!!!!


Excellent - we loved it! The kids were brilliant, music fantastic & it's a great story with lots of comedy to boot. We went for a special birthday celebration & it was perfect!


This musical was amazing. The actors danced and singed very well! I laughed, I also cried. The music, the rythm was really brillant. I will see this again! I recommend!


Fantastic! We enjoyed ourselves for the full 3 hours! Dance, music, singing, play was amazing.

I can not find words to describe this theater experience. I have seen many plays and musicals in London and elsewhere, and I can honestly tell that this was ultimately the best I have ever seen. I was laughing and crying in turns and my heart was bursting throughout the show. The rhythm, pace and scene-structure of this musical was exceptionally perfect and there was no single scene which would have bored me or been too long. Timing was perfect in terms of songs, monologues, dialogues, dances etc. and something surprising happened when you least expected it and when you did not yet expect it to happen. I also, especially, loved the progress of this musical; Billy developed very very slowly and the best parts of his dance happened only closer to the end. This kept the audience at excitement from the beginning til the end. Summary: An excellent show with amazing actors and actresses (where did you find these children from???), perfect costume design, lightning, musics and special effects. The stage had been built amazingly well and the space used very efficiently. This was a pleasure for all five senses --and I think I actually discovered my sixth sense as well, so impressed I was of this spectacle. :)


I was very much impressed about the performance of such a player who is so young. He was on the stage almost through out the whole play, sang, danced and acted, without any mistake... And it was very amazing the contribution of other young players, at a very high level of professionalism and disipline. From the first scene to the end, I enjoyed and watched without any bore. It was first time in my life watching a performance of such young artists.. Recommend it to everybody.


BRILLIANT !!!! the artists at their best...a must see! you leave the show dancing on the streets !!!


I've seen several musicals in London, and this one comes in my top 2! Brilliant entertainment!

Anne Gray

A fine musical capturing the passion and feeling during the miners strike. The story telling, the singing , dancing , scenery and humour all gave to a wonderful evening that everyone should experience. Exceeded all expectations.

Chantelle Smith

Highly recommend this musical to anyone!, I took my mum and dad for their birthday and they thought it was amazing!, The singing is lovely and puts you in a good mood!


Loved it! While some shows are all about the staging, this was about the script, the dancing, the theatre. 'Billy' was outstanding -- what talent for such a young age -- and all of the children were fantastic. Great historic story line too. Being Canadian, learned something new about the miner's strike.


Saw this in daughter and I just looked at each other at the interval- smiling and speechless! Ali Rasu was amazing...everyone was amazing...everything about it was amazing! So many emotions I have never seen ballet live before (must get out more) and I felt tears rolling down my face when Billy danced alongside his older self, it was so beautiful and inspiring...but all the dancing was fantastic. I thought the show might lack something without the music from the film but it did not. I had read there was a lot of swearing, there was but it was in context of the time and the situation- cannot fault anything!

Great show, lovely theatre and a night out we all enjoyed. The dancing was brilliant and the story well told . Congratulations !


Good music, great dance routines, touching story. Elton John's reflection on the Miner's strike story of Billy Elliot works well. Certainly took me back to what was a period of intense social and economic dislocation. The young Billy Elliot performer excelled and the show is certainly to be recommended. Thank you, London.

What a fantastic show!!! Thoroughly enjoyed it, some really funny scenes together with some really poignant ones. Actor who played Billy was excellent - a superb dancer and loved his scenes with "Michael". Would recommend this show to anyone.


Billy Elliot is such a joy to watch. With history, dance and singing, tears of both sadness and happiness, the musical follows a true story. Amazing cast and fun, catchy songs. A must see for all the family. I would happily go see it again any day.

Awesome play. The seats were wonderful and the ambience of the theate enriched the experience.

P Sansom

Performances were very good, the story line followed the film but none of the songs from the film were played, not a major issue though. Final part was disappointing in comparison to the film as the story line builds up to his first major performance attended by his family & Michael where the show seemed to fizzle out and merged into the encore. Congratulations to the cast and company we were enthralled throughout.


A great musical, a little on the long side with some unnecessary bad language but it is still well worth seeing,. The young boy who played Billy was excellent, as were the dance routines.


This was a tremendous show and so beautifully British. Not too sugar coated, actually rather gritty, with humour and pathos. Maybe could have been a little shorter, but the action flowed together seamlessly and had a great energy. And darn, can that kid dance!


The kid who plays Billy is preternaturally brilliant. Precocious doesn't even begin to describe the rest of the young cast. And the backdrop of Thatcher's Britain is, for obvious reasons, more relevant now than at any time since she governed. Just one quick word of warning: you WILL cry (or at least come perilously close).

This was the third time id seen Billy Elliott and like a fine wine this show just gets better and better as it goes along, really builds along as the show goes on and is superb entertainment, very arty, funny and emotional too. I fully recommend this show for the whole family it really is one of the west end's best shows...5 stars


An absolutely outstanding performance by all - it's amazing how talented the kids are in particular. It had the perfect mix of hilarity and seriousness and made for an unforgettable evening.


This was outstanding. After a couple of major disappointments (Chorus Line, Curious Incident) it was a major relief to see a brilliantly acted and staged show. The songs are excellent and move the story along. The dancing is exceptional. There were several scenes which brought tears to a 56 year old's eyes - Billy dancing with fury against the police and strikers; Billy dancing with himself as an adult. And the young kid who plays his friend was both hilarious and poignant. Also loved the set piece where the cast sing Happy Christmas Mrs Thatcher. A real show for our times. I could see it several times over.


Absolutely amazing, actor playing billy was outstanding. Michael was hilarious and would definitely recommend it!


Full of energy. The little actor who played Michael was absolutely amusing.


I went to see this show last night and the boy who played Billy is a little star; brilliant!
