Elton commented, “Billy Elliot has always had a very special place in my heart and being involved in the musical has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. Broadcasting the show live to cinemas is a new venture for all of us and will make for a very special event. It’s going to be a thrilling day for everyone at our home at the Victoria Palace Theatre in London and we hope cinema audiences will be as excited as we are to see Billy Elthe Musical liot brought to life for the first time on screen.”
Elton's Billy Elliot partner, Lee Hall, remarked, “It will be great to see Billy Elliot achieve another milestone at what is set to be an amazing event. At our home in the West End we usually perform to an audience of 1,500. It is wonderful to think that this special performance will be seen by people in their local cinemas across many countries. This next chapter will be particularly poignant for us as Billy will briefly be returning to his beginnings on the cinema screen.”
