Here's the first of what will surely be several articles about the final performance. I have already sent Mr. Gans an email to alert him to the error in naming the four Billys who performed the show as Tade, Myles, Joseph and Peter. 8-)

PS I just received a response from him thanking me for the heads up and saying he will make the correction. :D

Quote:
Billy Elliot has delighted audiences on the Great White Way for a couple years, and, although it had a healthy run, it feels like an unfortunate casualty. Surely this one deserved to be a staple of the midtown theater scene for years. Maybe audiences found it too British. Maybe it wowed New York City crowds, but couldn’t hold onto that tourist demographic. Whatever the case, the Imperial Theatre shuttered one of the best shows in recent memory on Jan. 8.

Here's Theatermania's coverage of the final show:

http://www.theatermania.com/new-york-ci ... 47700.html

It's obvious that the wrong information regarding the names of the final cast of Billys is the result of a faulty press release on BETM's part when you see the same mis-information in more than one publication.

Playbill.com posted a photo call, different from the story that ERinVA posted:

http://playbill.com/news/article/158365 ... oadway-Bow

I especially love this photo of 12 Billys all doing the Billy jump. :D
