Post Re: Billy Elliot / Geordie Accent.
People need to realise Elton John composed very little of the Billy Elliot score - which is why he won no Tony for it, but Martin Koch did. Martin did most of the harmonies and all the orchestrations and incidental music. It took Elton 3 weeks to write his contributions - and it shows. Elton can't write musical theatre scores - and shouldn't do them.

Everything else in the production is brilliant, however!
