Six Word Saturday:
All singing, all dancing, great fun.
It is a perk of working in a school in London, there seem to be frequent trips to the West End to see shows with the benefit of group-saver prices. So this week I went along with a group to see Billy Elliot The Musical and had a fantastic time. I really wasn’t expecting to enjoy it as much as I did but the dancing, singing and acting were all brilliant. I have heard some people say that they didn’t enjoy it because it was too political, which would be true if you are a big fan of Margaret Thatcher but I think that setting the story amidst the UK miners’ strike with both tough ‘manly’ men and a lack of money in the community provided an important contrast for Billy’s aspirations and love of dancing. If you get a chance to see this show definitely take it, I really enjoyed it.
