Daytime Emmy winner Obba Babatunde’, not only plays The Bold and the Beautiful’s Julius Avant with such grativas, but he is now pulling double-duty where those who know the immense talent of this man are getting to see him on stage in a musical production of Five Guys Named Moe!

Obba is no stranger to musicals having created the role of C.C. White in the original company of the Broadway smash, Dreamgirls, and so many other countless roles.

In Five Guys Named Moe, this Tony Award-nominated musical, written by Clarke Peters, is set to music by the legendary Louis Jordan. It tells the story about the heroic Nomax (Babatunde’) – he’s broke, his lovely Lorraine left him and he’s listening to the radio at 4:45 in the morning. Out of the radio, five guys named Moe appear and encourage Nomax to turn his life around. It’s a wonderful performance by Obba in his element.

The musical is directed by Keith Young with musical direction by Abdul Hamid Royal, and plays now through June 11, 2017 at the Nate Holden Performing Arts Center, 4718 W. Washington Blvd., Los Angeles, 90016.

On hand on opening night on Saturday were Obba’s B&B castmates including: Reign Edwards (Nicole), Rome Flynn (Zende), Lawrence Saint-Victor (Carter), Anthony Turpel (R. J.), as well as General Hospital’s Jackie Zeman (Bobbie) and Y&R’s Kate Linder (Esther), and more.

Ashton Arbab Says Farewell To General Hospital: “It Was Such An Honor To Have Worked Alongside Of Such Talented Actors”

Yesterday, viewers of General Hospitals witnessed that as a result of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib; it meant the end of the road for a couple of characters.  One of those was Dev, and thus ends Ashton Arbab’s over two-year run in the role.

In key scenes, Dev dies in the ambulance ride to the hospital and thanks Sonny (Maurice Benard) for making him a part of the family and tells Sonny to tell Josslyn (Eden McCoy) that he is sorry.  Will Sonny recall what Dev said and pass that on to Joss? Will anyone figure out Dev’s duplicity in keeping Joss and Cameron (William Burton) apart? Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, Ashton took to Twitter on Tuesday and shared these words of praise and ‘thank you’ for his time on the ABC daytime drama series.

 

Arbab expressed: “I am forever grateful to Producer Frank Valentini and Mark Teschner (casting director, GH) for this amazing opportunity. It was such an honor to have worked along side of such talented actors and I’m beyond blessed for your friendship. Most of all thank you General Hospital fans.”

So, what did you think of Dev being killed-off? Will you miss Ashton? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Every day on set was a gift, as were: Emme Rylan, Kirsten Storms, Brian Lane, Dominic Zamprogna, Lisa LoCicero, Maurice Benard, Bradford Anderson (And others that don’t have social media!) Thank you General Hospital. Honored to be part of television history not only on this show, but to be among the first actors back to work in town post-Covid. The set always felt safe, and I was proud to be in front of the camera in such a strange time  Thank you for everything.  Stay soapy.”
