It’s hard to imagine anything that Judith Light hasn’t done, but now she is about to embark on her own new one-woman show off-Broadway beginning on September 6th.

The play entitled “All The Ways To Say I Love You,” is about love, hard choices and the cost of fulfilling all-consuming desires.  In it, Judith plays the role of a retired high school English teacher and guidance counselor in a loving marriage. Light’s character recounts her past experiences, revealing the truth beneath the many details of her life.

Soap fans know her as Karen Wolek from One Life to Live, and primetime TV audiences as Angela from Who’s the Boss, or her roles  on Ugly Betty, and TNT’s Dallas, and now her Emmy-nominated role on Amazon Prime’s Transparent.  Light is already a two-time Daytime Emmy and Tony winner.  Now in a new interview promoting her one-woman show with ABC’s Good Morning America, Judith opens up about her career which she  has gotten better as she has matured.

She related: “I have gotten more interesting parts as I have matured.”  Light also thinks the perception of an aging actress in Hollywood and show business is changing: “The more women who are speaking about it and talking about themselves as mature instead of hiding it or trying to closet it, in some way we’re making a path forward for the women who are younger in the business.”

As for her new one-woman show, Light says there is indeed “stage fright” and performing in this type of situation is “daunting”, but as her legions of fans know, there isn’t one role or medium that Judith can’t tackle with stunning verve!

“All The Ways To Say I Love You” will be performed at the MCC Theater in New York City.  Watch Light’s GMA segment after the jump.  Then let us know … are you excited to hear of Judith’s one-woman show?  Are you rooting for her to take home the Emmy next month? Do you think mature actresses in Hollywood are starting to get better roles?   Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Wow! Wish I lived in NYC.

How I wish I was in New York to see her one woman show. I adore Judith Light. She is so profoundly talented with such a tremendous range. I have loved her since our beloved One Life to Live. She keeps stretching and always delivers outstanding performances. I wish her tremendous success in this show.

Her comments about interesting parts for maturing actresses are very encouraging. In every walk of life, those of us who are still breathing are maturing, gaining more life experience, and, hopefully, gaining some wisdom and perspective from those experiences. We need to speak out and share our stories, our triumphs, our challenges, and our lessons learned. Kept knocking them dead Judith!!!!!!!!!!

She was great on DALLAS.

I LOVE Judith Light! Loved her in everything. I agree we are starting to see more roles and more in depth roles for ‘mature’ women and I hope the trend continues. We have an outstanding amount of talent in the soap genre and I’m happy to see them continue working and having good roles to play. Don’t we all love a good story? 🙂

I am lucky to live in New York and like so many have been a Judith Light devotee since the Karen Wolak days. She has been in a few incredibly moving pieces on Broadway and have been lucky to have seen them all. Only the most talented actors could handle this one-woman show, I’m certain this will be a great theatrical experience

The Chew Cancelled After 7 Seasons; A Slice Of Justice For All My Children Fans?

Karma is a bitch! ABC announced yesterday that the foodie series The Chew has been axed after seven seasons. 

The Chew lost significant viewers when ABC fired main co-host chef, Mario Batali after reports of alleged sexual harassment over many years. Clinton Kelly, Carla Hall, and Michael Symon have remained the regular series hosts.

In addition, The Chew dropped 17% with women in the 18-49 demo and this has been its least watched season since its debut in 2011.  As ABC Daytime fans know, The Chew replaced iconic soap opera All My Children, when ABC made the decision to cancel the beloved soap and replace it with the food show.

So, let’s take a look at the numbers: All My Children lasted 41 years, while The Chew lasted 7 seasons. Hmm …

ABC noted that The Chew will cease production at the end of this season, but will continue to air until September with all-new episodes in June.  In addition, ABC announced that Good Morning America will expand to three hours.  Thus, switching up the ABC morning line-up.

So, are you glad that The Chew got fried?  Is this justice for All My Children fans who miss their beloved Pine Valley?  Comment below.

Welcome To The New Michael Fairman TV: A Note From Michael Fairman

By now, many of you have come across and seen that Michael Fairman On Air On Soaps has evolved into the new and exciting platform, Michael Fairman TV.

I hope you take the time to tour the new site, and enjoy its new look, new features, and extended coverage; which will focus on, and include, not only your beloved daytime soap operas, but primetime television drama, a slice of reality programming, as well as popular streaming and digital series.

This site has been a long time in the making, and we’ve been working very hard behind the scenes to make this transition as smooth as possible.  As with any change, we know that it will take some time for all of us, including me, to get used to it, and adjust to it.

I truly appreciate the community that we have built for the last 10 years, and I value each and every one of you.  As with any new launch, there will be small tweaks and revisions along the way that do come up.  Our goal is to make the best user experience for you, and to bring you the news, interviews, and coverage that you expect from the Michael Fairman brand.

I know many of you are already saying you miss the old Michael Fairman Soaps, but this is an upgrade, not a demolition.  That being said, Michael Fairman Soaps was no longer sustainable as is.  The site needed to grow, evolve, change, and modernize with the times. With modernization, part of that is making the site accessible, functional on mobile phones and devices, which we now are.  While some things can’t remain the same forever, we are always interested in your input.

I am very proud and excited for this new chapter.  I hope you will enjoy everything that is to come, and I appreciate all of your loyal support.  So, let’s christen this site together and celebrate turning over a new page.

With gratitude,

XO

Michael
