So on Wednesday July 27th, my mom and I went to see Billy Elliot The Musical, the hit musical from the West End, visiting Ireland for the first time. In short, it was incredible, and I would totally recommend you go to see it. Here's everything you need to know.
Where? The Bord Gáis Energy Theatre, Dublin.
When? 26th July 2016 - 3rd September 2016
How Much? €45 - €68.50
What's It About? The musical doesn't stray too far from the movie, with an amazing score by Elton John. It is essentially about a young boy, brought up during the mining strike in 1984/1985 in the north of England, who goes against the grain to achieve his dreams of becoming a ballet dancer.
My Favourite Scenes? Without a doubt, the scene mentioned above with Michael and Billy singing 'Expressing Yourself' which blew the whole audience away, and the scene where Billy, and his older self (portrayed by Luke Cinque-White) did a duet. This one in particular totally captivated me, with the technique and choreography being of such a high standard. All I wanted to do was get up and dance with them!
Would I Recommend It? 100%. Please go see it while it's here!
I hope you enjoyed this review, I'll be going to see Once The Musical on Monday, so if you'd like to see a review of that do let me know.
