WE LOVE SOAPS TV 1.28 We Love Soaps Weekend

"We Love Soaps Weekend" at the Villa Roma Resort in Callicoon, New York, was held May 21-23. Ilene Kristen, Colleen Zenk Pinter, Robert Newman, Kathy Brier, Michael O'Leary, Bree Williamson, BethAnn Bonner and Evan Alex Cole performed. The talent presented on stage could play anywhere. It was top notch. Kathy Brier has a once in a lifetime voice. Colleen Zenk proved why she belongs on the cabaret stage and in musical theater. Bree and BethAnn brought the house to tears. Michael O'Leary was a huge hit with his stand-up comedy. Robert Newman showed his versatility and range. Evan Alex Cole shared his new "World Turns" single. And, of course, Ilene Kristen always rocks and her band was as tight as ever.

During Saturday's show, Kathy Brier previewed her role as Sophie Tucker in the new HBO series, BOARDWALK EMPIRE.

The video below shows a snippet of some of the performances from both Friday and Saturday nights.
