Billy Elliot

Our son, Ben, performed for almost three years in the Broadway and touring companies of Billy Elliot, starting out as Tall Boy in the Broadway ensemble, then performing as Billy's best friend, Michael, before finishing out as the title character in May 2013. These photos are from his first performance as Billy in Louisville, Ky., in June 2012, with actress Salma Hayek after she saw him perform in Boston in August 2012; as Michael one last time in December 2012 in Austin; and from his final performance in May 2013 in Las Vegas.
