So, "the musical "Billy Elliot" is coming to my city and I'm hoping that there's a ticket somewhere under the tree (I'm pretty sure there will be). There are actually five boys who play Billy because it's too much to do every night. This article tells the stories about the five boys in the touring company and what they (and all boys who take ballet) have to go through. I took ballet for four years mainly to improve my posture and movement for modeling and got teased and bullied a lot for it. These five gusys were all the only boys in their classes. I at least had another boy (now my BFF) in class with me. The article is very good, even though the writer makes some sarky comments herself like "these are the argest group of adolescent guys in America who would categorize spontaneous public singing as 'awesome.'”
Of course the best thing is that these guys who were called sissies eventually became hereoes once they got chosen to be Billy. The last words of the show, a reprise of “Expressing Yourself”: “Everyone is different, it’s a natural thing, it’s a fact that’s plain to see . . . What we need is in-di-vid-u-a-li-ty!”
