Dance, Billy, Dance

Billy Elliot will make his first official bow on Broadway tonight as the Olivier Award-winning musical opens after six weeks of previews.

Directed by Stephen Daldry with book and lyrics by Lee Hall (both of whom received an Academy Award nominations for the film version) and music by Elton John, the new tuner stars Greg Jbara, Haydn Gwynne (recreating her London role as dance teacher Mrs. Wilkinson) and, alternating in the title role, David Alvarez, Trent Kowalik and Kiril Kulish.
