Anne Strieber has often written about the incredible synchronicities in her life. Extraordinary coincidences happened to other people recently too.
What’s the probability of two complete strangers, whose sons concurrently starred on Broadway in the Tony-Award-winning hit Billy Elliot the Musical, being hired by the same employer? Not very likely, but that’s exactly what happened to Tammie Cumming and David Alvarez-Carbonell when they were both hired at New York City College. Cumming’s son, Alex Ko, will be the fifth actor to rotate into the title role of “Billy Elliot,” joining Alvarez-Carbonell’s son David, who has starred in the show since it opened on Broadway last fall.
