Those BILLY ELLIOT kids look amazing as does the Easter Bonnet sketches!
"The Spectacle has, indeed, an emotional attraction of its own, but, of all the parts, it is the least artistic, and connected least with the art of poetry. For the power of Tragedy, we may be sure, is felt even apart from representation and actors. Besides, the production of spectacular effects depends more on the art of the stage machinist than on that of the poet."
--Aristotle

Billy Elliot looks amazing.

Were those two little girls supposed to be a midget couple in the Easter Bonnet competition? What's that from?

They're the two girls who are in "Sunday in the Park with George."

Does anyone know if this is available on DVD?

What are their characters, though? It looks like one was supposed to be pregnant?

Sorry, one more question -- was it a joke, having two kids play an adult couple?

^^what he said.

and the two actresses (Allison Horowitz was Georges and Kelsey Fowler was Dot) split the role of Louise in Sunday... Daniel Evans and Jenna Russell introduced them as their "understudies" at the Easter Bonnet competition. obviously they're not.
When I see the phrase "the ____ estate", I imagine a vast mansion in the country full of monocled men and high-collared women receiving letters about productions across the country and doing spit-takes at whatever they contain. -Kad

brilliant!

talking about the SITPWG skit, not Billy Elliot.

i saw the show in London and didn't think it was special or that good. the talent these kids posess are absolutely fantastic though.

hope they're making some rewrites or changes before bringing it to Broadway?

What was the song that Anika sang? Is it from something? Is it an original composition?

Anika sang "Help is on the Way" by David Friedman. It's the signature song that is always used to close the Easter Bonnet show. Last year it was performed by Raul Esparza.
