BWW Review: Wear Your Tutu: BILLY ELLIOT - O MUSICAL Opens In Sao PauloBWW Review: Wear Your Tutu: BILLY ELLIOT - O MUSICAL Opens In Sao Paulo
by Claudio Erlichman - Apr 8, 2019

Billy Elliot o Musical is a musical based on the 2000 film Billy Elliot. The music is by Elton John, and the book and lyrics are by Lee Hall, who wrote the film's screenplay. The plot revolves around Billy, a motherless British boy 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 1984-85 UK miners' strike in County Durham, in North Eastern England. Hall's screenplay was inspired in part by A. J. Cronin's 1935 novel about a miners' strike, The Stars Look Down, to which the musical's opening song pays homage. (more...)
