BILLY ELLIOT at Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

Of the performances I’ve watched so far, Billy Elliot is one that I’ve enjoyed more than many of the others. Strange, perhaps, as this song has never been one of my absolute favourites in the score and I only really appreciate it when I see the staging, which makes it work despite any inconsistencies that might be found in the number itself. In this clip, it’s sold by the cast in terms of energy, which is all you can really ask for from one of these Thanksgiving Day performances can get. Polished in spite of the difficulties inherent to performing the number in this kind of setting; all it’s lacking is the dynamic of seeing it live in the theatre – and since that’s an impossibility, this is absolutely fine.
