"There were parts of this show that touched a chord with members of all three generations" -J. Wynn Rousuck.
Tom and J. Wynn Rousuck discuss the musical "Billy Elliott" at the Hippodrome, which Rousuck says has strong themes of "anti-discrimination, parent-child relationships and class struggle."
Many know the premise of "Billy Elliott" from the film of the same name. The film and the stage production are set in a small mining town in Northeast England in 1984. Billy becomes interested in ballet and the town's ballet teacher helps Billy hone his dancing skills-to the chagrin of his father and older brother, who would like the youngest Elliott to focus on taking boxing lessons as they focus on a coal strike.
"Billy Elliott" continues at the Hippodrome until Dec. 30.
