How to describe the We Love Soaps Weekend? In a few words it was mesmerizing, fascinating, compelling, and enlightening. Of course I had watched and loved all eight of these talents on their respective soaps. I had seen many of them sing and perform on New York stages in recent months. But never before had I been witness to the depth of their talent, the range of their capabilities, and abundance of their skills even when plans changed (which they did a few times!). From the perspective of an organizer, I gained a new respect and appreciation for each actor's resilience, courage, flexibility, and can-do attitude.
So next time Ilene Kristen, Robert Newman, Kathy Brier, Colleen Zenk Pinter, Michael O' Leary, BethAnn Bonner, Bree Williamson, or Evan Alex Cole are playing in a venue near you, I strongly encourage you to treat yourself and come see them. Believe me you will not be disappointed.
