Days of our Lives iconic Peter Reckell, who finally put Bo Brady to rest when the character met his maker last November, teased he had something new in the works.

Today, Playbill.com broke the news that Reckell will be returning to none other than the classic musical staple The Fantasticks off-broadway in its latest revival.  What makes this so special is that Reckell appeared in the original production of the musical 35 years ago in the role of  The Mute and covered the role of The Boy (Matt)  during the show’s record-breaking run at the Sullivan Street Playhouse in Greenwich Village.

However, the all grown-up Reckell will take the role of the charismatic and mysterious El Gallo! Peter will join the cast of the long running musical at the Jerry Orbach Theatre in a limited engagement that begins on September 5 and runs through September 25 . As El Gallo, it’s Reckell who narrates the show and leads the staged abduction of The Girl.  Among his songs are “Try to Remember” and “I Can See It.”

Tickets can be purchased at Ticketmaster.com, by calling the box office at (212) 921-7862, or by visiting the box office at The Jerry Orbach Theater at The Theater Center, 210 West 50th Street at Broadway.

I always loved Peter as Bo Brady. I’ve been watching Days since 1965 and Bo and Hope have always been my favorite couple. I was devastated when they killed him off. I would love it if he could come back to Days permanently and so would many other viewers. He is missed terribly.

Ummmmmm, not to be nasty, but thought he wanted to spend time with the family, I am starting not to believe anything the stars say, especially the ones who are leaving for their family. Just say you are looking for something better, we can take that !!

Its less than a month he will be in the show Off Bway. He never said he would NEVER work again. And its been 3 years since he’s been off Days & spending time with his family, not counting the anniversary shows. Plus his return is already being marketed here in NY, he was in the original cast 35 years ago. Thats something to celebrate.

What kind of run in the theater is 20 days? Real stage actors run for months, sometimes more than a year, lol.

I have to admit I do miss Peter on Days . Watching the show is just not the same for me without him. I wish they didn’t kill his character off . I started watching Days ,just about when Bo and Hope came in as the new super daytime couple. Seeing him again in June
was a nice surprise. I am very excited that he will be in the Fantasticks . Looking very much forward to it.

Miss Peter so much on Days but happy for him about the play. I would go support him but we live in Southern California. Read about it in Soap Opera Digest. I will always hold out hope of a return to Days. Maybe when they end the soap Bo can finally return to be with Hope.

What a wonderful feeling to try and get tickets to see The Fantastiks with Peter Reckell. I have been a fan since his first appearance on Days of our Lives. (Yes I’m 77 and have been a fan since the first episode – the show was was seen every day as a study break in college).

Well, I’m now going to call and try to get tickets for a Wednsday matinee in September.

If I don’t get tickets – well, Peter – have a wonderful run in New York.

Fondly,

Christie expressed: “Oh my goodness, just starting to feel ok on this end. My husband Tom and I have had coronavirus fairly bad. Not as bad as some, no hospital needed. Hope your all well! I’m sure at this stage you all know of someone with it? When you get it, you can’t call the grandparents for help, cause they will get sick. We know about 10 people in our little circle that have had it. Like clockwork, Day 7,8,&9 were tricky and haven’t been able to taste food for a while. So excited to be in the land of the living again & start exercising…soon. Thanks for all the love. Stay safe!”

Send your well-wishes to Christie and Tom as they are on currently getting stronger and recovering from the virus via the comment section below.
