Debut of Billy Elliot at the Orpheum Theatre a Huge Success – You Can’t Not Like This Show!

Wednesday, June 29th, 2011

No matter where you fit in as a fan of the Theatre, you’re going to love Billy Elliot, now playing at SHN’s Orpheum Theatre through September 17th, 2011.

And the glowing reviews are in already, from Albert Goodwyn, for one:

“This inspirational musical celebrates a dream come true. SHN’s traveling production is seamlessly orchestrated and performed with a high level of polish. The musicians in the pit, led by Maestro Jon Rose on piano, found every nuance and compositional gesture of Elton John’s music.”

O.K. then.

You’re going to love Billy Elliot.

(And if you go to the box office at 8th and Market, you really can tickets for just $35, no fees, no nothing.)

All right, see you there!

“BROADWAY’S “BEST MUSICAL OF THE DECADE” -Time Magazine

BILLY ELLIOT THE MUSICAL
is a joyous celebration of one young boy’s journey to make his dreams come true. Ben Brantley of The New York Times calls BILLY ELLIOT “THE MOST INSPIRING SHOW I’VE SEEN IN YEARS.”

Set in a small town, the story follows Billy as he stumbles out of the boxing ring and into a ballet class, discovering a surprising passion that inspires his family and his whole community. A big musical with an even bigger heart, BILLY ELLIOT will enchant the dreamer in all of us.
