It was announced yesterday morning that Billy Elliot The Musical has been nominated for a record-tying 15 Tony Awards. In February, Pam and I went to New York to see the hit musical on Broadway at the Imperial Theater. This was my first Broadway show, and I loved it!
The nominees for the Tony Awards were announced Tuesday morning on the CBS Morning Show. The three boys who share Billy Elliot’s title role in the New York production — David Alvarez, Trent Kowalik and Kiril Kulish — were nominated together for Best Actor in a Musical. Kiril Kulish was in the show the day we saw it in February, and he was amazing.
The trio performed one of the numbers from the show after the announcement on CBS. They did one of my favorite songs from the show "Electricity." Take a look at the video and you'll see what everyone is talking about:

The 63rd Annual Tony Awards will be broadcast on June 7, on CBS. I don't always watch the Tonys but this year I just might. And if the show comes to the Providence Performing Arts Center, I plan to see it again!
