When Miles Gaston Villanueva (Ex-Luca Santori) was wrapping up his run on The Young and the Restless, he was also appearing in a workshop production of a new play, God Looked Away, working alongside none other than Academy Award and two-time Tony winner Al Pacino and two-time Tony and Daytime Emmy winner,Judith Light (Ex-Karen, OLTL)!  In fact, On-Air On-Soaps interviewed Miles during his final rehearsals to get the skinny on his part and working with two of the most talented and beloved performers in the business.

Now came word on Monday, that God Looked Away will now be playing for a few weeks at the reknowed Pasadena Playhouse, in Pasadena, California in the next leg of the production of this new work.  The play written by Dotson Rader is about the life of playwright Tennessee Williams.   As told to us by Villanueva, “The story in the play gives you a peek at Tennessee Williams trying to mount one of his plays, and the struggles he goes through to produce, and write a play in his later years.”

Villanueva took to social media to announce the exciting news that tickets are available to see the production: “So. It’s official. Starting January 2017, I will be back on the big stage, starring opposite Al Pacino in a new play, GOD LOOKED AWAY, at the Pasadena Playhouse in LA. It is the next installment after our beautiful workshop production over the summer. I am over the moon. Al and the entire cast and team are magic.”

The show will have performances starting on February 8th and run through March 19, 2017.

So, if you are in the Southern California area will you try to see Miles, Al and Judith together on stage in this intriguing new work? Comment below.

Wow, what an opportunity for Miles. To me, Al Pacino is our greatest living American actor. He continually challenges himself and the last ten years (when contemporaries like Robert De Niro are just phoning in many of their performances) have allowed him to do the best work of his career. ANGELS IN AMERICA; PHIL SPECTOR; YOU DON’T KNOW JACK; DANNY COLLINS…all brilliant work. And Judith Light has redefined her career in the past few years as well. Miles is probably on cloud nine!

Lynn Herring Celebrates 35th Anniversary of Her General Hospital Debut; and ‘We Love Lucy’

Today, April 11th marks the 35th anniversary of the debut of Lynn Herring on General Hospital as Lucy Coe.  And wow, when you look at the road this character has gone on played to the hilt by Herring, it has been one entertaining ride for GH fans along the way.

Lucy started out as a mousy librarian, if you can believe that! And of course, she eventually showed all that she was a bombshell.  She then became quite the schemer and seductress.

Along the way, Lucy was married to Alan Quartermaine (the late Stuart Damon), was involved with Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom) and other men in Port Charles.

 

At one point, Herring took the character of Lucy to the now defunct Port Charles where she stayed from 1997-2003,

But this one time gold-digger eventually became the champion of the GH Nurses’ Ball and helped raise awareness and funds for HIV/AIDS research. Now, year after year, the one thing you can always look forward to is Herring’s hilarious antics and sincerity in her star turn as the emcee of the annual fundraising event.

On Sunday, the GH tweeted posted: “Lucy Coe knows everything about everyone in Port Charles and we would be lost without her. Please help us congratulate TheLynnHerring on the 35th Anniversary of her #GH debut”. 

Lynn responded sharing: “Thank you! Have loved every @GeneralHospital  moment!”

Share your congratulations to Lynn via the comment section below, and let us know your favorite Lucy moment too!
