Billy Elliot Leaps One Step Closer To Broadway Bow

Billy Elliot Leaps One Step Closer To Broadway Bow

As noted here last month, producers of Billy Elliot The Musical are gearing up to bring the Olivier Award-winning Best Musical to Broadway with their eyes on a debut set for the fall of 2008. According to Andrew Gans of Playbill.com, a casting notice has now been issued stating rehearsals are slated for February, 2008.

Gans also reports that a third version of the hit musical -- produced by Universal Pictures, Working Title and Old Vic Productions -- will enjoy its Australian premiere at Sydney's Capitol Theatre on January 26, 2008.

Billy Elliot, of course, is based on the outstanding motion picture of the same name. As I've previously divulged, the London staging of Billy Elliot ranks among my personal top ten favorite shows of the 2005-06 Theatrical Season.

This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).
