Broadway Billys

Meet three stars of tomorrow: Trent Kowalik, David Alvarez and Kiril Kulish. The trio of triple threats will rotate through the title role in the eagerly awaited Broadway debut of the London stage hit Billy Elliot.

The triple casting, which took nearly three years of scouting and auditions, is due to the physical and vocal demands of the production. James Lomas, George Maguire and Liam Mower, who originated the role of Billy in the West End, shared the Olivier Award for Best Actor in a Musical in 2006.

Based on the movie of the same name, the musical will be directed by Stephen Daldry (who received an Oscar nomination for the original film) and features music by Elton John. Billy Elliot will begin previews October 1 at the Imperial Theatre, followed by the official opening on November 13.
