BWW Review: BILLY ELLIOTBWW Review: BILLY ELLIOT
by Francesco Vittorino - Nov 30, 2015

'Billy Elliot' e un musical del 2005 scritto e prodotto da Elton John, con libretto di Lee Hall, basato sull'omonimo film del 2000. Lo spettacolo e abbastanza fedele alla pellicola cinematografica, anche se tende ad esaltarne la componente comica mentre quella tragica risulta un po' banalizzata. (more...)

by Stage Tube - Nov 13, 2015

Today in 2008, Billy Elliot opened at the Imperial Theatre, where it ran for 1312 performances. Billy Elliot the Musical is a musical based on the 2000 film Billy Elliot. The music is by Elton John, and book and lyrics are by Lee Hall, who wrote the film's screenplay. The plot revolves around motherless Billy, who trades boxing gloves for ballet shoes. The story of his personal struggle and fulfillment are balanced against a counter-story of family and community strife caused by the UK miners' strike in County Durham, in North Eastern England. It won ten Tony Awards and ten Drama Desk Awards, including, in each case, best musical. (more...)
