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.

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!!!!!!!!!!

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

‘Empire’ Star Jussie Smollett Turns Himself In After Being Charged With Allegedly Filing False Police Report & Facing Criminal Charges

In major developments in the last several hours, Jussie Smollett (Jamal Lyon, Empire) turned himself in to Chicago police early Thursday morning, just hours after he was charged with disorderly conduct for allegedly staging a racist and homophobic attack against himself late in January on the streets in Chicago.

In a press conference currently being conducted by the CPD supervisor, Eddie Johnson and Commander Edward Wodnick, they revealed that Smollett turned himself in quietly and without issue.   In addition, the Chicago PD are outlining the events and timeline that led to Smollett’s arrest.

Smollett turned himself in at the Central District police station in Chicago at 5 a.m., police reported.  Thursday morning, Smollett was scheduled to appear for a bail hearing Thursday at 1:30pm central time on a felony charge of a class 4 disorderly conduct, and with that charge Smollett could face up to 1.5 years in prison.

Jussie’s attorney’s released the following statement on Wednesday night after Smollett was charged by the Chicago PD: “Like any other citizen, Mr. Smollett enjoys the presumption of innocence, particularly when there has been an investigation like this one where information, both true and false, has been repeatedly leaked. Given these circumstances, we intend to conduct a thorough investigation and to mount an aggressive defense.”

Smollett reported that he has been attacked as he was walking home around.  He claimed two masked men shouted racist and homophobic slurs as they beat him, put a noose around his neck, and poured a chemical on to him.

Enter two brothers, Ola and Abel Osundairo, who Smollett knew, who were arrested last week, but later released as suspects. The two brothers told police they helped stage the attack with Smollett.  They were paid $3,500 to orchestrate the attack by Smollett.  In their press conference, the Chicago PD revealed that they have the check as evidence were Smollett paid the brothers that sum.

The brothers left for Nigeria hours after the attack, and were arrested days later when they returned to Chicago.   On Wednesday, they testified to a grand jury. Smollett was later charged with disorderly conduct.

What do you think now about the events and the arrest of Jussie Smollett?  Comment below! But first watch the Chicago PD police department.live feed of the press conference on Smollett’s arrest.
