PHOTO CALL: Elton John Dons Tutu to Help London’s Billy Elliot Celebrate First Anniversary

News   PHOTO CALL: Elton John Dons Tutu to Help London’s Billy Elliot Celebrate First Anniversary Never one to shy away from the eccentric, pop star turned musical theatre composer Elton John had the audience in stitches on May 12 in London, as he appeared onstage in a tutu to celebrate his musical Billy Elliot’s one year anniversary.

Devised by director Stephen Daldry, the anniversary was celebrated by a one night only event, in which the trio of boys who originated the title role returned to share the stage, with each boy playing Billy in alternating scenes throughout the performance. John joined the boys in his unique garb for the performance’s curtain call.

Below, Elton John and the three Billys take their bow at the Victoria Palace Theatre in London.
