Next Y&R and B&B Theme Weeks Announced

Sibling rivalries and major disputes take center stage next week for The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful for their June 1st through the 5th encore presentations.

Since both CBS Daytime dramas have run out of original episodes due to the COVID-19 TV production shutdowns in Los Angeles, the sister soaps have been offering up theme weeks to their fans.

For Y&R look for a handful episodes surrounding the Abbott clan, here is what to look for:

Monday, June 1, family and friends gather to witness the nuptials of Traci (Beth Maitland) and Brad (THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL’s Don Diamont), while Katherine (Jeanne Cooper) and Dina (Adams) plot against Jill (Walton), and Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) struggles with her drinking. The episode originally aired Jan. 11, 1991.

Tuesday, June 2, Jack (Bergman) smells success as John Abbott (Douglas) regains control of Jabot, and Victor (Eric Braeden) and Ashley (Davidson) make amends. The episode originally aired Sept. 17, 1999.

Wednesday, June 3, Jack (Bergman) proposes to Phyllis (Michelle Stafford), and tensions rise between Traci (Maitland) and Ashley (Davidson). The episode originally aired Sept. 10, 2001.

Thursday, June 4, as the family mourns the loss of John Abbott, Kevin (Greg Rikaart) and Michael (Christian Le Blanc) help Gloria (Judith Chapman) fight for her place among the Abbotts. The episode originally aired August 24, 2006.

And for The Bold and the Beautiful look at these scheduled ‘major clashes’ handful of episodes!

Monday, June 1, the battle between long-time nemeses Stephanie Forrester (Susan Flannery) and Sally Spectra (the late Darlene Conley) heats up when Sally, irate over a disparaging interview Stephanie gave to a trade paper regarding the quality of Spectra Creations, confronts Stephanie at her home. As they hurl insults back and forth, the spat quickly turns comical, with Sally ending up in Stephanie’s pool. Meanwhile, Sally’s husband, Clarke (Dan McVicar), flirts with Stephanie’s daughter, Felicia (then played by Colleen Dion-Scotti), making her a business proposition that’s hard to refuse, and Macy (Bobbie Eakes) and Jake (Todd McKee) begin to explore their burgeoning feelings for one another. The episode originally aired Feb. 19, 1992.

Tuesday, June  2, the sinister Sheila Carter (Kimberlin Brown) threatens to kill Stephanie (Flannery) for keeping her from Eric (original cast member John McCook), while Ridge (then played by Ronn Moss), Brooke (original cast member Katherine Kelly Lang), Eric, Dr. James Warwick (Ian Buchanan) and Lauren Fenmore (THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS’ Tracey Bregman) attempt to talk her down. Meanwhile, Taylor (Hunter Tylo) and her father, Jack Hamilton (Chris Robinson), try to make sense of why Ridge married Brooke so soon after he thought Taylor died. Darla (Schae Harrison) brings Sally Spectra (Conley) a new hairdresser, Gladys (the late Phyllis Diller), who reveals that Taylor is still alive! The episode originally aired June 7, 1995.

Wednesday, June 3, decades-long rivals Taylor (Tylo) and Brooke (Lang) fling accusations, past hurts and wedding cake at each other during Hope (Annika Noelle) and Liam’s (Scott Clifton) wedding reception. Caught by their daughters, Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) and Hope, Taylor and Brooke are made to go back into the ceremony and face their families, each of whom has something to say about the situation. The episode originally aired August 22, 2018.

Thursday, June 4, enraged that Brooke (Lang) is at her family’s Big Bear cabin to seduce her youngest son, Thorne (then played by Winsor Harmon), Stephanie Forrester (Flannery) arrives during a raging storm to confront the woman she feels is destroying her family. Frightened by Stephanie, Brooke attempts to reason with her, but soon realizes that Stephanie means her serious harm. Meanwhile, an angry Kimberly (Ashley Cafagna) arrives at the Forrester Mansion to confront Brooke but instead finds Rick (then played by Jacob Young), who has feelings for the beautiful model. The episode originally aired August 3, 1999.

Friday, June 5, in what was the most anticipated episode of 2019, Douglas reveals to Liam (Clifton) that Phoebe is Beth. Liam races against time to save Hope (Noelle) from Thomas (Matthew Atkinson) and tell her the truth. Liam and Thomas have a battle of epic proportions on the rooftop of Forrester Creations, which results in Hope learning the truth: that her beautiful baby Beth is alive and that her family can be reunited. Heartbroken, Flo (Katrina Bowden) attempts to convince Wyatt (Darin Brooks) not to leave her over her part in the baby Beth scandal. Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) assures Steffy (Wood) that she is Phoebe’s mother and that she has nothing to worry about. The episode originally aired August 5, 2019.

OLTL Alum Renee Elise Goldsberry On Performing Her Showstopper “Satisfied” In ‘Hamilton’ Premiering On Disney+ Today

We loved her as Evangeline Williamson on One Life to Live, and the Broadway world loved her in her Tony Award-winning role as Angelica Schuyler in the musical Hamilton, which today bows on the filmed version on Disney+.  Of course, we are talking about the fabulous Renee Elise Goldsberry who has talent abounds.

In Hamilton, Goldsberry performs a showstopper “Satisfied” as Angelica makes the ultimate sacrifice giving up the man she loves Hamilton played by Lin-Manuel Miranda) to her sister for her sister, Eliza’s (Phillipa Soo) happiness.

Now taking the version of this memorable moment in the theatre and bringing it to life on film also makes for an exciting performance and piece of creative work.

In an interview with the Los Angeles Times out today, Renee talks about executing this number in the show just right: “There are things that are technically challenging about that number: on top of the words, there’s the movement and the fact that we’re doing the previous number in reverse the whole time. It was a lot of things to juggle, but that was never hard, that was all intellectual. Even the rap was relatively easy. The most challenging part to sing is that final toast.This is an extremely well-written song. Every word is crafted to analytically take this woman on an emotional, life-altering decision for these three lives. That decision was such a monumentally painful and beautiful thing to do that by the time I’d get to that moment in which she makes that decision, I was so devastated that it was hard to sing that toast. She’s conflicted because, clearly, she wants to stay around this guy, she recognizes his brilliance, but she gets that Eliza is the one. So I imagine this woman having to give this toast to this community, in spite of the pain she felt.I was always worried that somehow or another, I wouldn’t be able to live up to the brilliance of the end of that song because emotionally, I was just trying to manage it. It took me maybe until Broadway to feel OK about it.”

When asked how she felt about seeing “Satisfied” in the movie version of Hamilton available everywhere Friday on Disney+, Goldsberry added: :Seeing it from the audience’s point of view for the first time, I realized there was a whole ‘nother level of storytelling that was going on, separate from me. I mean, Howell Binkley’s lighting design!  And Andy Blankenbuehler’s brilliant choreography, which I could always only see in my peripheral vision. It’s a huge number with the entire company onstage just killing it and basically turning back time with their bodies, and I’m standing in the middle, talking out like a deer in the headlights to the audience about a burst of things that I have to grapple with immediately. I’m very grateful that he made my job much easier.”

Watch a clip of Renee’s performance in the film version of Hamilton below.

Now, let us know if you are planning to watch the highly-anticipated Hamilton over the fourth of July weekend via the comment section and if you are excited to see Renee in her award-winning winning in it?
