Billy Leaps Into Chicago 2010

From Broadwayworld.com:

Eric Fellner, a producer of Billy Elliot the Musical announced Tuesday: "On behalf of my fellow producers and the entire production team, I am delighted to confirm that the national tour for Billy Elliot the Musical will begin in Chicago in the spring of 2010. The three and a half year run of Wicked paved the way for us to consider Chicago for an extended production. We could not have asked for a warmer or more welcoming reception than that which we've received on Broadway, however in our short time in Chicago we feel we've found Billy Elliot a perfect new home,"

For his part Billy Elliot composer, Elton John responded "Chicago has always been one of my favorite cities to play. And it is my distinct pleasure to share this show that I love so much with a city that has always been very kind to me."

Performances will begin March 2010 at the Ford Center for the Performing Arts, Oriental Theatre (24 West Randolph, Chicago). Additional cities, dates and casting will be announced at a later date.
