Photo Coverage: Kulish, Alvarez, & Kowalik Reunite for BILLY ELLIOT Celebrity Cook-Off

Yesterday evening, May 4, David Alvarez, Trent Kowalik and Kiril Kulish, Tony winners for their performance as Billy in the hit musical Billy Elliot, reunited to support TrueChild in their Celebrity Cook-Off event at the Institute of Culinary Education. TrueChild is a leading national organization that helps all children break through stereotypes so they can be true to themselves and reach their full potential. Alvarez, Kowalik and Kulish were joined by "Top Chef" season five finalists Carla Hall and Fabio Viviani. BroadwayWorld was on hand to capture the event.

The event was hosted by "Top Chef" season four star Ryan Scott. The TrueFlavors Celebrity Cook-Off was sponsored by ING. For the competition, the teams each had 35 minutes to prepare a three course meal with secret ingredients revealed only moments before the contest.

Billy Elliot the Musical is the joyous celebration of one boy's journey to make his dreams come true. Set in a small town, the story follows Billy as he stumbles out of the boxing ring and into a ballet class, discovering a passion that takes him by surprise, and takes his whole family on an incredibly uplifting adventure.
