Opening Tuesday: In 2009, this musical by composer Elton John and book writer and lyricist Lee Hall wowed Broadway, winning 10 Tonys. The show, about a working-class British boy who dreams of dancing instead of fighting, has been running in New York ever since. It had a sold-out run at the Orpheum Theatre in Minneapolis in December 2010. Now the show returns for a twirl across the river, with Woodbury 13-year-old Zach Manske alternating with Kyland Hetherington (pictured) in the lead role. (7:30 p.m. Tue.-Fri., 2 & 7:30 p.m. Sat. & next Sun. $36-$106. Ordway Center, 5th and Washington Sts., St. Paul. 651-224-4222 or www.ordway.org.)
