The Tony committee yesterday ruled that the three actors who play Billy Elliot on Broadway — David Alvarez, Trent Kowalik, and Kiril Kulish — are eligible for a joint nomination for Lead Actor in a Musical. Should they win, they'd each get their own Tony statue, despite having done just a third of the work. [ArtsBeat/NYT]
