Superb!
19 November 2014 | by See all my reviews

Superb performance,love the 'Live' format. Twenty six dancing Billy Elliots In the Chorus line. We saw the show at Victoria Palace. The live format at ICON in Minneapolis where a smallish appreciative audience applauded right along with the audience in London's West End. Every cast member was in top form and the camera close-ups and aerial shots gave us unprecedented access. The dialog was a challenge to the Mid-West ear but the energy of delivery of the lines conveys the meaning the trauma of the CMU strike. ' Merry Christmas Maggie Thatcher' is a routine that stays in one's memory long after the final curtain. For me this was the finest night in the Cinema for a very long time.
