Billy Elliot the Musical

In honor of Lee's birthday we took him to see the musical Billy Elliot.  The music was written by Elton John, but it is in no way a musical based on his hits.  The story takes place in the coal fields of Northern England in the mid 1980s.  There was a story line where the 11 year old Billy gave up boxing to become a ballet dancer.  If you enjoy ballet, this musical is a must see.  More information.
From there we went to a nearby TGIFridays for dinner.  Those streets in the Theater District are always jammed no matter what time of the year you are there.  How can anyone want to drive a car in that area?
