I had the pleasure of meeting Brad Kavanagh, an original Michael from this production about five years ago at an awards ceremony we were both nominated for. After hearing about his time with the show I knew it was one I wanted to see. I regret that it took me until earlier this year to actually see it. This was my second visit to Billy Elliot, the British musical that has captured the hearts of audiences world-wide and continues to do so after seven years in London. With five current Billys, four Michaels and four Debbies in the cast, at this performance the role of Billy was played by the latest addition Harrison Dowzell, Michael by Joe Massey and Debbie by Francesca Mango.
