OLTL's Florencia Lozano's new play featured in NY Times!

In a fantastic article out in the New York Times earlier this week, One Life to Live’s ” dead”  Tea Delgado, Florencia Lozano is featured in a write-up about her new play underneathmybed , currently playing at the Rattlestick Playwright’s Theatre in New York City. Titled: Soap Suds by Day, Political Drama at Night, the feature discusses the parallels between Florencia’s two worlds, daytime TV and writing and performing for the theatre.

David Van Asselt, artistic director of the Rattlestick, said he was drawn to Lozano’s play about the entwined political and family tumult in underneathmybed, but even more to its extensive use of Spanish, as the parents bicker in their first language and the three daughters argue and agonize in English. The play takes several twists and absurdist turns at times, and Mr. Van Asselt said he worked with Ms. Lozano and the play’s first-time director, the actor Pedro Pascal (“Some Men”), to focus the story on the central character of Daisy.  Ms. Lozano said balancing the fantastical with reality came fairly easily to her, pointing to her work on One Life to Live. Téa, who married the show’s rakish antihero four times, is now officially dead, but her body has mysteriously disappeared, and the first rule of a soap death is that anything can happen.  “I really pushed myself to take risks with my writing, to experiment and try to stay away from conventions,” Ms. Lozano said. “In that sense I think Téa helped me, because she is in a world where the most outrageous surprise is as ordinary as breathing.”

Indeed, none of her fellow soap actors seemed fazed to see her back during a recent visit to the set. Dozens of stylish dresses and pantsuits marked “Téa” remained in the wardrobe department. Asked about her character’s future, Ms. Lozano offered a sly smile and said nothing more. She gossiped breezily with her cast mates, then headed downtown to her play.

Well,I’m sure Ms.Lozano will be back on OLTL in the near fututre in some form or other. We need closure on this story and can’t leave Todd with another failed marriage. Can’t we give him a break.? Also, I commend Ms.Lozano on her creativity and wish her luck with her new play. But, see you soon on OLTL….

Corbin Bernsen to Reprise His Role of Arnie Becker in ‘LA Law’ Revival Pilot

Corbin Bernsen (Father Todd, The Young and the Restless) and the son of Y&R’s late great Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor) has signed on to reprise his signature primetime television role of womanizing lawyer Arnie Becker in the upcoming LA Law revival pilot.

This makes Corbin the co-lead of the series alongside Blair Underwood (Ex-OLTL) who previously signed on to the pilot to reprise his role of Jonathan Rollins.  ABC has greenlit the pilot.

According to Deadline, it is believed that Bernsen and Underwood will be the only original members of the mid 80’s-90’s legal drama on NBC in the pilot, but more may guest-star if the show gets picked up for a full-season order.

In the premise of the reboot, the law firm of McKenzie Brackman, now named Becker Rollins, reinvents itself as a litigation firm specializing in only the most high profile, boundary pushing and incendiary cases.  The show will feature familiar characters working alongside new ones on the most hot button issues of the day.  As for Bernsen’s Becker, now in his 60’s, look for him to struggle with a rapidly shifting sexual and political landscape.

The original LA Law ran for eight seasons from September 15, 1986 to May 19, 1994 on NBC.

So, what do you think of Corbin taking on the role of Arnie Becket in a revival of LA Law? Would you be intrigued to check out the show if it makes it to series? Comment below.
