Nathan, and Daniel Torres will take part in the initial presentation of the stage version adapted from Robert Harling’s and Andrew Bergman’s screenplay of the 1991 comedy film, Soap Dish about the behind-the-scenes drama involving the cast and production crew of a fictitious soap opera!

BroadwayWorld.com who broke the news of the cast, but also noted at this time there has been no formal announcement, or set timetable for the show. The reading is being presented by Laurence Mark, Donald De Line and Broadway Across America.  The new musical is going to be directed by Rob Ashford, with book by Harling, and music by George Stiles and lyrics by Andrew Drewe!

As many soap fans know, the original motion picture of Soap Dish starred Sally Field, Kevin Kline, Whoopi Goldberg and Robert Downey Jr. to name just a few!  So, what do you think of the cast for the planned presentation of Soap Dish The Musical?  Would it be something you would be interested in seeing?  Let us know!

Frankly, I’m most excited by the news that Michael Park, who has not yet broken out into mainstream, will be opposite an all-star cast like this. It brings more attention to him, his name and his work, and makes him that much closer to becoming more well-known. He’s certainly earned the big roles IMO.

I couldn’t agree more with this comment! Michael Park is a brilliant actor and an all around great performer who always gives more than 100% to any role he takes on.

I’m most excited that Michael Park will be included. Miss him and he needs to really get noticed for his outstanding work. I dream of him being on Blue Bloods since that is filmed in NYC. To anyone listening, he would bring in a lot of new fans to Blue Bloods. Wish MP the best.

Of course chenoweth has a new acting gig. Like hollywood would let her fade into obscurity. she did slander Christianity w/ her portrayal on GCB. she propagated hollywood’s evil agenda of smearing religious Christians. She’s gotten a new role bec hollywood rewards her for being a good little lackey that bashes Christians.

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.
