Billy Elliot

Our season ticket subscription for the 2010-2011 season at the AT&T Performing Arts Center is now over.  I highly encourage all of you Dallas-ites to either invest in the next season for a series of date nights or at least make plans to see something at the venue in the near future.  It is a fantastic experience. 

The last show in our bundle was Billy Elliot, the musical of a coal miner's son who forgoes his boxing lessons for the ballet.  The story line is a very drab and dreary one dealing with out of work laborers, depression and the challenge of doing what you were made to do in the face of adversity.  The upside was comical relief peppered into the show: quirky characters and an unusual number with oversized dancing dresses and trousers that you will not see in the movie!  The entire cast oozed with talent from the oldest member down to the wee girl who was no taller than two feet and owned every dance move.  The young'un who played Billy on opening night blew me away with his range of emotion and each movement he made.  All in all, a successful night of entertainment!

Next up is Spamalot...
