A Scheduling Switch For One of Elton's Musicals--
January 2011 @ 16:38
The San Francisco Chronicle has announced that Billy Elliot the Musical will dance into that city's Orpheum Theatre in June . . . a few months earlier than its previously announced September dates.
Due to changes in its touring schedule, the national company of the Broadway hit will preview June 27 and open June 28 for a limited 12-week engagement.
Based on the popular film, director Stephen Daldry's production - with music by Elton and book and lyrics by Lee Hall - premiered in London in 2005 and won 10 Tony trophies on Broadway, where it's still playing.
Tickets for the Orpheum run, the final offering in the 2010-11 Best of Broadway series, will go on sale February 4 at (888) 746-1799.
