Two-time Daytime Emmy winner and fan favorite, Michael Park (Ex-Jack, As the World Turns)  is been having a great streak on the Great White Way!  Now this triple threat performer has just landed a primo role in a new musical that will be eventually heading to Broadway sometime next year!

The production: Tuck Everlasting The Musical is based on the 1975 fantasy children’s novel by Natalie Babbitt about a young girl who befriends a rather unique family that never ages because they drink from a magical spring in the woods. Park played the Tuck family patriarch, Angus, in the developmental workshop back in December, and could now be part of the cast when it debuts in Boston in 2013 in preparation for Broadway in NYC!

“Looks like “Tuck Everlasting” (new musical) is happening next spring!” he announced on Twitter. “Asked to play Pa Tuck.”  As many know, Park was last seen in the revival of  How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying on Broadway.

So with Park landing roles in the Big Apple, how about some smart soap executive writing a part to showcase his talents on one of the four remaining daytime soaps? Or, even cast him in one of the new primetime soaps or dramas slated for fall?  Thoughts?

I “heart” Michael Park. More than a soap star, he is a truly talented actor with commitment to the craft. The Emmys are so well deserved, and watching sopaclassics.com’s AS THE WORLD TURNS DVDs reminds us that acting is an art and Michael Park is among the best practitioners. I am so happy the theatre world keeps him busy.

Michael Park is an amazing actor. I’m so happy for him and I wish him all the best in his post-soap career. He and Maura West had the best chemistry ever for a daytime pairing besides TSJ and FL.

As the World Turns Cast To Perform Virtual Reading Of Final Episode

In a once-in-a soap-lifetime event during the Covid-19 pandemic, the cast of As the World Turns will reunite for one night online for a virtual reading of the CBS daytime drama’s final episode that aired back 10 years ago this past September,

This livestream event is for a good cause and is brought to you by former ATWT cast member, Trent Dawson’s (Ex-Henry) theatre group The Katonah Classic Stage.  Dawson is the artistic director there.

Over 26 veteran cast members from ATWT, including Larry Bryggman, Don Hastings, Kathryn Hays, Elizabeth Hubbard, Michael Park and more are set to participate in the reading plus some surprise guests.

The show will be streamed  n The Locher Room YouTube channel, 0n Wednesday night, October 28th at 8 p.m. EST/5 p.m. PST, where fans will also  have the opportunity to comment and ask questions of the cast,

The event is asking for a $15 donation to be able to see it and you can click here for more info!

Working with Katonah Classic Stage (KCS), a professional, nonprofit theatre group an hour north from New York City, Dawson is hoping this event will help those in need.  KCS has access to outdoor performance space that can provide a safer, more  socially-distant experience for the artists and the audience. The fundraiser not only  applies to salaries, but to health care as well; without employment most artists are ineligible for health coverage during a time when such insurance is critically important.

So what do you think of getting these beloved stars from ATWT together for a good cause to relive and read the script of the final episode from Oakdale? Comment below.
