If you want to get misty-eyed and take a trip down Llanview memory lane, look no further than last night’s Broadway performance of the Tony-nominated musical Hamilton!

The show which co-stars Tony nominee, Renee Elise Goldsberry (ex-Evangeline Williamson, OLTL) received a very special guest audience member at last night’s performance.  None other than Kassie DePaiva (Ex-Blair Cramer, OLTL) sat in the theatre and watched her former One Life castmate, sing up a storm and more.

Afterwards the two met up for a photo and DePaiva tweeted, “Saw the stellar @reneeelisegolds in the brilliant #Hamilton tonight. There are no words. I wept with pride.”

Followed by a very touching tweet from Goldsberry:  “Cried through that show just knowing u were in the same room with me again 4 a few hours. I miss u @KassieDePaiva!”

Bring out the hankies now!  So One Life to Live fans, what do you think of this nice moments between performers, friends and former castmates? Comment below!

This is a very nice story. Kassie and Renee are terrific actresses and singers. And, from what I’ve read, terrific people too. Too bad Blair and Evangeline never did a duet. How this brings back excellent memories of our beloved One Life to Live which I continue to miss every day!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you for posting this Michael.

Miss my OLTL dearly to this day..They both had great chemistry in the show back then..I remember a scene when Blair went to visit Evangeline in her home, to tell her how sorry she was about her accident that left her blind..Of course the two ladies dislike each other because of Todd…When E got tired of B telling her how sorry she was and hinting to her to stay away from Todd, E tell B to please leave and that she will walk her out..A spiteful B then leans towards E ear and tells her “That ok, Evangeline..I’ll SEEEEEE myself out” leaving a blind E fuming..I must have rewind that scene many times..I am weird that way.

Congrats to Renee…Hamilton is an instant classic that showcases her talents..Best of luck in the Tonys..As for Kassie, well she needs to be back on the soaps..I just love her..Days made a huge mistake firing her..GH should try to cast her.

Lucky enough to see the show last week and @Reneelisegolds is indeed brilliant along with the rest of her castmates. Good to see these gals together again.

I too saw the show in February. Goldsberry is a standout in a cast of standouts. Fingers crossed that she wins the Tony. She sings my favorite song on the Original Cast Recording, plus a bunch of others. Well worth the price. I’ve been obsessed with it for months now.

Example of just how talented OLTL casts were during those 40 years. The series IMHO always sported such strong talents from the theatre community in NYC. I miss New York-based soaps.

Oh my word! How I miss Evangeline and Blair, and my entire Llanview crew so, so much! OLTL was really the best soap on so many levels. I can only hope that ABC realizes what a blow it was to cancel their best soap!

I’d love to see “Evangeline” with more of her Llanview friends. I hope more of them stop by to see Hamilton, and pose for pics afterwards!

Love to see genuine friendships. Miss seeing both of them on OLTL.

I was introduced to Hamilton by my college student grand daughter. I knew nothing about the musical in December ’15. When she showed me some video clips of it with Renee, I screamed, “I know who she is! That’s Evangeline!” I was immediately and constantly corrected by her that no, that is Renee Elise Goldsberry.. Ok I have it now.. She is Angelica! I too hope all of the OLTL cast comes to see Hamilton and that they pose for some backstage photos.. ABC made some awful mistakes dumping the best soaps on TV.

OLTL Alum Renée Elise Goldsberry Says: “I Just Think The Best Actors In The World Are On Daytime Television”

As everyone knows by now, we have always been a huge fan of the work of Renée Elise Goldsberry starting back to 2003 and her beginnings on One Life to Live in her twice Daytime Emmy-nominated performances as Evangeline Williamson.

Since OLT, Goldsberry’s career has found her on-stage in the smash musical Hamilton, then in feature film and TV series including: Waves, Altered Carbon, The Good Wife, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, The House with a Clock in Its Walls, Documentary Now, The Get Down and Evil. 

Deadline has recently released their New Hollywood Podcast and Goldsberry was a guest on the most recent episode.  While she fielded questions from the hosts about her life pre and post-Hamilton, the topic of her time on the soaps was bantered about,  Renée stood proud with the daytime community and their talent and unbelievable work ethic and how they are not given the credit they deserve.

When talking about One Life to Live, Goldsberry stated: “I learned my acting chops on that show, because we have so much work. I just think the best actors in the world are on daytime television ”

In explaining to the hosts how soaps are shot and the pace in which the actor’s are asked to perform, she related: “We take three months to film an hour and a half movie, but soap actors. shoot six hours of television a week. They’re just really talented. The stories are so broad, and they always have to continue to defend their character and some kind of really crazy situations.”
