B is for Billy

Billy Elliot

Originally opened in the West End on May 11, 2005 (the movie preceded the stage show)

Currently: playing in the West End (it's closing next week) and touring the UK

Music: Elton John
Lyrics: Lee Hall
Book: Lee Hall

Everybody knows about: He takes ballet in secret and his family's not happy when they find out. (At least, I hope everyone knows that. It's kind of the basic plot.)

I have thoughts: Not a lot of thoughts, although I do remember the year it ran away with all the well-earned Tonys. I'd like to see this show but wouldn't go out of my way to do so. Sooner or later a high school near me has to take it on, right? I haven't seen the movie, either.

Have you seen the show? What did you think?

Well, this is a fun topic! I'm using a random number generator to choose blogs to visit, and I'm glad I found this. I've never seen this one, although I'm of the generation that was obsessed with Annie. I could really do without having "Hard-knock Life" permanently etched into my brain.

Oh, geez, me too! I can never decide if that or "Maybe" is the worse earworm.
