SIR Elton John hopes to take his new Billy Elliot musical to the New York stage following its success in London's West End.

The CROCODILE ROCK star wrote the music for the production, which is based on the hit 2000 movie, and opened to critical acclaim last week (11MAY05).

He is now in talks to take it to Broadway.

Sir Elton says, "We would love to take it to Broadway and I think the Americans will love it.

"But we haven't got anything finalised yet."
