WOW! What an amazing show. After seeing it I saw why it won 10 Tony Awards. I was with my church to go see this show. They did not know there would be a lot of swearing. It was a tour package. We got a tour of Chicago, had lunch at Buca di Beppo, go to Navy Pier, and then see Billy Elliot. The show was really wonderful. We had center section balcony seats. I was at the last row of the middle balcony. Pretty close, considering it was with a group. Cesar was amazing as Billy. I definitely feel he was the strongest out of the Chicago Billy’s. Emily was awesome as Mrs. Wilkinson. The riff she did at the end of “Shine was breathtaking! Susie had a beautiful voice as Mum. Her voice was almost angelic. The show was such a great experience. I would give it a 10/10 :)
I wanted to stage door but you cant really do that when its a group tour! :(
