About This Gallery

It was October 1, 2008, when heart-warming new hit musical Billy Elliot stepped onstage for its first Broadway preview, introducing young title stars Kiril Kulish, Trent Kowalik and David Alvarez and British powerhouse Haydn Gwynne to New York audiences. Just over one year, 370 performances and ten Tony Awards later, the show offcially said goodbye to two of its original stars when Kulish and Gynne played their last performances at the Imperial Theatre on October 4, 2009. It was a teary final curtain for the pair, who starred as Billy and dance teacher Mrs. Wilkinson, as cast members line-up for their turn to say goodbye. Post-show, Kulish will continue his training as a dancer, while Gwynne (along with her two sons) is headed back to her native London to reunite with her husband. Click on to wish Billy Elliot's departing duo a fond farewell and best of luck in the future.
