Piss Off

This Monday evening I had the pleasure to see Elton John's, Billy Elliot on Broadway! And it sent Electricity threw my bones!!! This extraordinarily uplifting and intoxicating show had me weeping with tears of joy. For those of you who aren't familiar with the story of Billy Elliot, let me give you the low down. Young Billy, who's mother recently passed and dad and brother are enduring the horrible miners strike is sent to boxing lessons but soon finds himself fancying a different sort of footwork, BALLET! Billy soon realizes his ballet potential and is going to audition for the Royal Ballet School, but his family is to overwhelmed with the thought of Billy being a "Poof" to let him ever dance again. It's a heart wrenching tale of a family that wants nothing more than to be together but is being pulled apart at the seams. With the help of Billy's loopy grandmother and best "cross-dressing" friend Micheal, this sob story is quickly changed into a upbeat dance comedy with plenty of British humor and language not entirely suitable for the kiddies!
