I'm from Germany. I discovered Billy Elliot two years ago, when I watched the DVD edition and was fairly blown away.
It is the heartwarming story, it is so colourful and beautiful, I love the music, I love the dancing, I admire all the people performing on and behind the stage, I’m absolutely in love with this musical. I like the relation of Billy to his father and his love to his mother. I like the power of the boy, the courage and the talent. Billy became an important inspirational part of an episode of my life and it still follows me around. I'm happy to be here :)

Welcome to the forum. I too enjoy seeing how the relationship between Billy and his father changes as the show moves through. One of my favourite moments is when Billy does the twirl in his anorak and then leaps into his father's arms, it's heart warming stuff!

Hello milno,

Welcome to the forum. Glad to become aware of a new German fan. Have you read Lola's review of her/his recent visit to Hamburg? Most likely, you will find my review of my attendance on last saturday in the next days. Hurry up and go to Hamburg. Go by train and use the discount pricing. Stay at the YHA Stintfang just above the St. Pauli Landungsbrücken and you will find out that a weekend in Hamburg isn't necessarily expensive. Enjoy a brilliant performance of the whole cast and especially the Billys before they all spread away in all directions by the end of the tour. In other words and like Tony said before "Angry Dance": This is your big chance. Go for it. You won't regret.

Best regards
Then I saw her face

Thanks to all for your kind reply and especially to "Then I saw her face" as a german compatriot and for his splendid recommendation for BE in HH. I disvored BE thank God early enough to watch it once in the last weeks of Victoria Palace time. Malmö and Stockholm followed. I didn't have great expectations to get the possibility to watch it in Germany. It's a bit funny: Last fall my google search engine didn't work one day and for checking it I later the day entered any search query that came to my mind and so, without any expectations, I typed in "billy elliot germany" - it was a few days after it was announced that BE comes to HH :) I called a friend and of course we had booked our tour one day later :)
