Sir Elton John surprises media with Press conference for "Billy Elliot The Musical"


The press release announced a vague press conference in regards to an announcement from,
"Broadway In Chicago" with the always mysterious line of, "Special celebrity guests"

Well in my book,after all these years of covering events,what comes to mind when you throw in the term, "Special celebrity guests"
after I have had only 2.5 hours of sleep it hopefully means, "Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie!

The wonderful PR person remained tight lipped over our email exchange then I figured it out.
Press conference-music or entertainment-Wrigley Field..Concert at night is Elton and Billy Joel..Could it be ??

Yes,it was Sir Elton!
So.......Broadway In Chicago held a press conference to announce "Billy Elliot The Musical" choose Chicago First!
Sir Elton John along with producers Jon Finn and Eric Fellner spoke with reporters to announce that the musical will open in Chicago in March 2010.


The award winning musical arrives in our town first!

Ernest Borgnine appearance at Borders Books in Chicago


Ernest Borgnine discussion and signing for “Ernie The Autobiography” at Borders Books in Chicago Illinois.

Ernest Borgnine entertained the crowd with a lively discussion on his career and favorite people that he had worked with thru the years. Sadly,the younger audience only recalls him as a voice from 'Sponge Bob'
Borgnine at 92 is more alert and coherent than many 30 year olds I've met. At 92 I hope I'm on a long vacay and not at Borders! ( I love Borders!)
