As always Michael, so nice to see your gracious support of Eric. Knowing the pilot process, know it can be a challenge to make it to a series. Would be terrific for ESS fans to get to see his talent showcased on a regular basis once again. Let’s hope the show wil lget a boost from having “Emmy winner, Eric Sheffer-Stevens” as past of the ensemble:-)

I am absolutely thrilled that I will be able to see Eric on my TV screen regularly again. I knew as talented as he is, it would only be a matter of time before he found something. As the mother of 2 teenage daughters, I love the premise, and Jamie Pressley is so funny. Eric had acting chemistry with everyone on ATWT, and I imagine he and Jamie together will be gold! Can’t wait!

Oh, should have mentioned that fans of LuRe are gathering in NYC at the end of June. It is a celebration of the incredible friendships formed among folks from all over the world. Folks are on their own for accomodations and travel plans but many group events are being planned/coordinated. Details can be found on Eric’s fan run website @ http://s1.zetaboards.com/ESS_Fan_Forum/topic/3748578/1/#new. It’s a terrific celebration of friendships formed over shared love of Eric’s work.

Why does that matter? Gay, straight, bisexual. It’s a role. I’m just hoping the show is picked up. I would really like to have the opportunity to see him weekly. I think he’s very talented.

I agree 100% with zippy2825. It does not matter what is the sexual orientation or preference of a character; infact that should not be even an issue of judgement for any individual in RL.

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.
