This was my second time seeing the show and it was awesome. We came to Chicago that day to take the Broadway In Chicago theatre tour. We were then going to try rush tickets to see the show Traces. We were going to buy tickets to The Lion King, but since it was the last performance in Chicago they were sold out. I wanted to get tickets for Billy Elliot but my dad said I did not need to see the show again. When we got to the theater my dad asked if they had rush tickets for Billy Elliot. They said they had no more left. My dad then asked what the cheapest tickets were. We ended up getting second to last row $50.00 tickets in the balcony. We then went to the theater tour saw some cool things then went to lunch and got ready to go in. The show pretty good the second time. Myles was spectacular as Billy. Definitely my favorite after Kiril! The rest of the cast was ok. I didn't really like the cast changes with Mrs. Wilkinson and Mum. They were ok, but Susie was 10 times better as mum. This was also the 3rd to final performance in Chicago. I would give it a 9/10 :)
This was the first time I was able to stage door. It was pretty cool. We rushed out of the theatre and went to the stage door. It was only me, my dad and three other girls. I was really shy to ask the cast members to sign my playbill, so I only got Myles (THANKFULLY). My dad could not believe how short he was (I could tell he was short when he first came on stage).
This was the first video vlog I had done, so its a little messy :)
