Finding cheap tickets isn't easy, due to the popularity of this Broadway show, but there are ways to find discount Billy Elliot tickets if you know where to look
Story set in a small town in northern England during the 1984 miner's strike. Young Billy Elliot is the youngest child in a family of miners who faces challenges and tragedies, including the loss of his mother and witnessing his father and brother hit the picket lines of the strike.
During this dark time in Elliot's life, he discovers a passion and gift for dancing, thanks to a brazen dance instructor who chain smokes and drinks far too much. At first, Elliot keeps his instruction secret, but as the world around him continues to crumble, he realizes that the Royal Ballet School may be his only chance at completely altering his future prospects.
Who Should See?
Although this is a story of a child, the Broadway musical is not the most appropriate for a younger audience. If you locate tickets, you will find that the dialogue is littered with adult language throughout that may shock children and adults alike.
There are also two scenes where Elliot's mother comes back from the dead, which might prove too intense and frightening for younger children. The dark nature of the musical is another reason why kids might not enjoy as much as other shows on Broadway.
Look for discount tickets for the adults in your crowd and find a more appropriate selection for your younger children.
What the Critics Say?
While some of the critiques of this musical are mixed, there are many professional critics who loved on Broadway. One described Billy Elliot as, "The best gift from Britain since Harry Potter." Many of the critics loved the music by Elton John, and the cast has received many kudos from even the most discriminating theatre enthusiast.
On Broadway, Billy Elliot is currently playing at the Imperial Theatre on W. 45 Street. Grab your discount Billy Elliot tickets and be entranced by this heart-warming story!
