BWW is thrilled to bring you these photos of the Toronto cast of Billy Elliot! Previews began February 1st (opening night is March 1st) and Toronto has fallen in love with this show! Already playing to sold-out crowds before it has even opened, people of all ages are embracing the story about a young boy who breaks with tradition and pursues his dream of becoming a dancer. The show won The Tony Award for Best Musical in 2009 and features music by Elton John, book and lyrics by Lee Hall, choreography by Peter Darling and direction by Stephen Daldry.
Over the next few weeks BWW will be bringing its readers extensive coverage of the show, including interviews with the cast and behind the scenes fun!
