Billy Elliot celebrated its 1.5 millionth audience member on June 22 with a curtain speech and a special gift, which went to lucky audience member Caty Dougherty from Philadelphia.
As patrons entered the theatre on June 22, their tickets were scanned by house staff, and it was determined that the lucky 1.5 millionth patron was seated in seat Q13. Caty Dougherty, the occupant of that seat, was given a Billy Elliot merchandise package along with other gifts and was invited onstage with the cast after curtain call.
Here's a look at the curtain call and speech:
