Inspired by the 2000 film, Billy Elliot the Musical brings the boy who could think of nothing but dance to his rightful place on the stage. Billy discovers his love of dance but struggles with the disapproval of his coal miner father. Set in the 1980s during a miners’ strike, these tickets explore the prejudices and overwhelming conflicts of a changing world accompanied by a score by Elton John and Lee Hall.
Billy Elliot Tickets and Seating
Elton John so enjoyed the 2000 movie he contacted the original screenwriter Hall and set to work on a stage adaptation. Billy Elliot the musical became a staged reality in 2005 in London at the Victoria Palace Theatre on the West End. The production earned nine Olivier Award nominations and took home four, including Nest New Musical. The Broadway musical eventually transferred across the Atlantic to Broadway. It seems odd that a musical so successful would take three years to cross over, but it did. When Billy Elliot finally came to the United States, it opened at the Imperial Theatre on October 1, 2008 for previews and on November 13, 2008 officially. Notably, three young actors rotated as the titular character. These three collectively won the Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Musical at the Tony Awards. Billy Elliot the Musical won 10 of 14 Tony Awards, including Best Musical. The show has since opened in Toronto, Seoul, San Francisco, and taken to the road with two national tours. Get your Billy Elliot tickets and enjoy this story for its heart, its music, and its incredible dancing.
