In a decision that would almost certainly be criticized as unfair if this race weren't already locked up anyway, the Tony Awards Administration Committee has ruled that voters for next month's ceremony need only see one of the three actors (Trent Kowalik, Kiril Kulish, and David Álvarez) alternating the title role in Billy Elliot: The Musical to vote for the trio for lead actor in a musical (they probably would've won anyway).
