THE DAILY TELEGRAPH
- Charles Spencer
‘This is not a time to beat about the bush. Billy Elliot strikes me as the greatest British musical I have ever seen, and I have not forgotten Lionel Bart’s Oliver! or Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Phantom of the Opera. There is a rawness, a warm humour and a sheer humanity…big and bold, imaginative and great-hearted. Elton John has written a wonderful score that ranges from folk to hard rock, from razzle-dazzle show tunes to soaring anthems of human solidarity and defiance. The whole cast is blessed with a freshness and sincerity I have rarely seen equaled, and one leaves this triumphant production in a mist of tears and joy.’

THE DAILY MAIL
- Quentin Letts
‘Billy’s a whizz!
He’ll lift your soul, make you cry and send you home high with hope. Dreamy dancing, full-rip staging, stonking songs a production of the most searing quality. A glorious show. It’s a weepie, funny spectacle married to a super score by Sir Elton John. Utterly captivating.

 

THE MAIL ON SUNDAY
- Georgina Brown
‘Stephen Daldry’s passionate new musical version, a work of fabulous flair and tremendous talent, which had me blubbing as much as beaming. TRULY ELECTRIFYING - THIS HEART-STOPPING SHOW IS A MUST-SEE.’

 

THE INDEPENDENT
- Janet Street-Porter
‘Wor Billy! What a sensation, what an inspiration. At last, a musical that’s rough, raw and, above all, political. From the sheer exuberance of its young stars, to the captivating choreography, it’s far more than a feel-good evening.’

 

EVENING STANDARD
- Nicholas De Jongh
‘Billy Elliot The Musical, based upon Stephen Daldry’s classic movie, is just irresistible. This musical conveys a raw excitement no film can match.’

 

THE SUNDAY TELEGRAPH
- Susan Irvine
‘What you get with Billy Elliot The Musical is bucket loads of that old razzle-dazzle. You get uplifting lyrics, chubby miners fluttering in the air like flying hippos, panto, sentimentality and plenty of belly laughs. Above all you get the children, who are extraordinary.’
