Joining David Alvarez, Trent Kowalik and Kiril Kulish is 13-year-old Tommy Batchelor, according to a press statement.
Batchelor, who hails from Palm Beach Gardens, FL, began dancing at the age of four. He was previously an understudy for the three Broadway Billys.
A spokesperson for the Tony Awards told the New York Times that only the three original Billys will be eligible for a joint Tony nomination for Best Actor in a Musical.
Haydn Gwynne, who created the role of dance teacher Mrs. Wilkinson in the show's original London cast, repeats her work for Broadway audiences. Also in the company are Gregory Jbara as Dad, Tony winner Carole Shelley as Grandma and Santino Fontana as Billy's brother Tony. David Bologna and Frank Dolce alternate in the role of Billy's friend Michael with Stephen Hanna as Billy's Older Self, Joel Hatch as George, Leah Hocking as Mum, Thommie Retter as Mr. Braithwaite and Erin Whyland as Debbie.
Stephen Daldry, who directed the inspirational motion picture, also directs the stage production. The music is by Elton John with book and lyrics by Lee Hall. A cast album preserves the work of the London company.
The tale is set in England's Northeast against the backdrop of a miners' strike in Margaret Thatcher-ruled Great Britain. The musical concerns a working-class boy's dream of becoming a ballet dancer — and the obstacles and advocates he encounters.
