BILLY ELLIOT Responds to Mackintosh News; Plans to Play the Victoria Palace for at Least 2 More Years
Following the announcement that Cameron Mackintosh will be taking over the Victoria Palace Theatre this June and is planning improvements beginning in 2016, Billy Elliot THE MUSICAL, which currently runs at the theater, has released the following statement:
Billy Elliot the Musical continues to enjoy a phenomenally successful run at the Victoria Palace Theatre where it will continue to play for at least the next two and a half years.
Billy Elliot the Musical is currently booking at the Victoria Palace Theatre to 16 May 2015 and a new booking period, to October 2015, will go on sale next month.
Productions of Billy Elliot the Musical have been staged on Broadway, as well as in Sydney, Melbourne, Chicago, Toronto and Seoul, South Korea. The North American touring production, which began in 2010, finished its spectacular run in August last year with an engagement in São Paulo, Brazil, the first time Billy Elliot has played in South America. The show will open in the Netherlands in late 2014, and further international productions are currently planned.
Billy Elliot the Musical is presented in London by Universal Stage Productions, Working Title Films and Old Vic Productions in association with Tiger Aspect and is based on the Universal Pictures/ Studio Canal film.
