Dubbed “the best show you’ll ever see” by The New York Post, “Billy Elliot: The Musical” is finally making its way to Louisville. Winner of 10 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, “Billy Elliot” tells the story of a young boy in a small British town who trades in his boxing gloves for toe shoes and a dream of the Royal Ballet School. The musical is adapted from the 2000 film of the same name and features songs by Elton John and lots of dance numbers. This touring cast features Louisville native Samantha Cutler as Debbie, the dance teacher’s daughter with a bit of a crush on young Billy. So bring the kids, show some hometown pride, and see for yourself what “electricity” the critics are raving about. —Jennifer Harlan
