Inspiration From Billy Elliot

billie-elliot-programI saw the musical Billy Elliot at the Manitoba Theatre Centre on Friday night. It was a thoroughly enjoyable performance. The play tells the story of a young man who becomes passionate about dance.  I found the lyrics written by Lee Hall inspirational.

And the stars look down and know the pain
And the stars will lead us back to where light shines again- from The Stars Look Down

That it wasn’t by chance
We were destined to dance- from Born to Boogie
