WLS entertainment reporter and "190 North" host Janet Davies will host the half-hour special that will include an interview with Sir Elton John, who composed the music for the Tony Award-winning show. The four young actors who will play the role of Billy Elliot during the Chicago engagement at the Ford Center for the Performing Arts will discuss their part in the show as well. The special presentation also will examine how the musical's creators developed their stage production from the film on which it is based.
