Give the Boy a Chance.

Eight years after its cinema release, Billy Elliot is back and this time, live.  With the original creative team in the wings, director Stephen Daldry, and writer Lee Hall, and new addition Elton John, Billy Elliot is on the fast lane to a Broadway hit.

The story takes place in the UK in the mid 80’s during a time when UK’s miners find themselves on strike.  Billy’s father has expectations for his future that involve boxing gloves and a championship, but when Billy catches a glimpse of the ballet class next to the ring everything changes.  It is a beautiful story of fate, and love.  If you haven’t seen the movie I highly suggest checking it out, and then buying a ticket to the new Broadway show.
