This was my fourth BETM performance (I have attended ) and also my fourth Billy.
Whenever I see a new Billy I first have to get used to him and at the end I am wondering, whether I had just seen the best Billy ever. That was the same yesterday.
Tom Holland was wonderful energetic, especially of cource in Electricity. For quite some time he kept a straight face at the end of that scene, while the audience did not stop clapping. It was like a battle and in the end we won, as Tom awarded us with a smile. But already before that scene in the Swan Lake scene I had to realize what an expressive dancer he is. It was the first time I had to cry during this scene.
George as Michael is simply a perfect match for me. He seems to love this role and also loves to play with the audience. What a loss when he leaves!
I only want to mention one other member of the cast: Caroline Deverill as Mrs. Wilkinson. What a great singer she is!
All in all it was a wonderful performance with a well deserved standing ovation at the end. And again it iritated me, that everybody was preparing to leave while the music was still playing.
