Many of you may have seen the news last night that Cameron Mackintosh has purchased 2 more theatres to add to the portfolio of DMT venues in the West End. One of these is the Victoria Palace which, as you know has been the home of BILLY ELLIOT the MUSICAL for the last 9 years.
Within the press release sent yesterday by Cameron’s office, there was an implication that BILLY ELLIOT would be finishing at the Victoria Palace in October 2016, however, please see the Press Release below. Please therefore rest assured that it’s business as usual as far as this brilliant musical is concerned.
"Billy Elliot the Musical continues to enjoy a phenomenally successful run at the Victoria Palace Theatre where it will continue to play for at least the next two and a half years.
The recording breaking show has just welcomed its 37th Billy Elliot and a new cast led by Ruthie Henshall, and in May next year Billy Elliot the Musical will celebrate its 10th birthday.
Billy Elliot the Musical is currently booking at the Victoria Palace Theatre to 16 May 2015 and a new booking period, to October 2015, will go on sale next month.
Billy Elliot the Musical features music by Elton John and book and lyrics by Lee Hall. Stephen Daldry directs with choreography by Peter Darling.
Productions of Billy Elliot the Musical have been staged on Broadway, as well as in Sydney, Melbourne, Chicago, Toronto and Seoul, South Korea. The North American touring production, which began in 2010, finished its spectacular run in August last year with an engagement in São Paulo, Brazil, the first time Billy Elliot has played in South America. The show will open in the Netherlands in late 2014, and further international productions are currently planned."
