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,

Barbara Wilson

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Gabi’s Revenge Plot Begins To Unfold; Watch Out Abigail and Stefan!

Evil Gabi is back on Days of our Lives, and that means some great material for Camila Banus (Gabi) to sink her teeth into. After all, who doesn’t love a Gabi scorned?!  This week, viewers already learned that Gabi has already switched the paternity results to make it look as if Stefan (Tyler Christopher) is the father of Abigail’s (Marci Miller) unborn child, when it is really Chad’s (Billy Flynn).  To top it off, she is manipulating and “advising” Gabi on what to do about her paternity secret

On Tuesday’s episode while in the park, Gabi reflects on changing the paternity results and says out loud to herself: “Karma is a bitch. Since you and Stefan ruined my life …” but she stops talking when all of a sudden Stefan appears.  He wants to talk about “Gabi Chic”, and their mutual business interests, but she’s not having it one bit!

She blasts him and his fictitious girlfriend “Gabby” for framing her for murder, and all that has transpired in her life since then including: being beaten up in prison, which has left her unable to have any more children, due to a surgery and an infection she developed while in the slammer for a crime she did not commit.

Gabi says she is not like her ‘Madre.”  She believes in revenge and that people like him deserve to be punished, and that she wants to see him suffer like she has. Stefan is hoping that Gabi will eventually trust him, put the past behind them, and work together.  Stefan exits and once alone, a vengeful Gabi says:  “You and your little whore, Gabby, took something from me that’s precious. Now it’s my turn to take something from you.”

Then to put an exclamation point on her revenge plot, Gabi grins that “all hell will break loose.”

Are you glad to see Gabi back with an edge as she plans to make Abigail and Stefan’s life a living hell? What do you think will be the next move in her master plot? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

DAYS Preview – Week of July 16, 2018

This week on Days of our Lives, hell hath no fury like a Gabi (Camila Banus) scorned!  Now out for revenge after receiving devastating news that she can never conceive another child, Gabi has switched the DNA results to make it appear to Abigail (Marci Miller) that Stefan (Tyler Christopher) is the father of her unborn baby.

How far will Gabi continue to sink to carry out this lie and to give payback to Stefan and Abigail as her alter “Gabby” for sending her to prison for a crime she did not commit? Is her former lover, Chad (Billy Flynn) collateral damage in all of this?

Meanwhile, Brady (Eric Martsolf) prepares to say goodbye to his son, Tate after losing custody of his son when the judge rules in Theresa’s (Jen Lilley) favor, but will fate intervene, allowing Brady to keep his son after all?
