Wait no longer.... it's been running for years now.


Should have been more specific-i meant on Broadway. I WISH I could go see it in London or something-but my parents won't take me. :( They did say they'll take me when it comes to broadway though-so I'm excited! :)

I personally love the song "Merry Christmas, Maggie Thatcher." My American friends and I sing a version called "Merry Christmas, Paris Hilton" with the same chorus, but the lyrics are otherwise different. I'd post them here, but they'd never make it through the content filters.

It's a Christmas song people from any nation and political affiliation can all join in, together. No Jesus controversy, just sincere hatred for Paris Hilton. And that's what Christmas is about, right?

^ Haha, sounds great. Although me and my friend did manage to get a boy who idolizes Margaret Thatcher to like the song.

I would love to see lyrics to the Paris Hilton version.. could you print them and just **** out the naughty words? :D Please?

No, aside from Swan Lake which has been made all funky, none of the music from the film is in it.

I have'nt seen the musical yet, but I have the soundtrack. I think the best song is the final. It's not many good songs in this musical, (But I can manage that there are very good dancing, then!) but the final is really taking me somewhere with it's energy! Nice!

I auditioned for this on broadway! it was the most fun I've had at an audition in quite some time. (The thing is that I don't really dance. I was proud though because I kept up and was able to do it all) I didn't get it, but I'm telling you now I will be first in line when tickets go on sale.

I read today that they are thinking of doing a new Billy Elliot movie only this will be based on the musical.
