    Absolutely love the new set for Victor and Nikki. Nice job set designers (I smell some Set Design Emmy’s coming Y&R’s way next spring)!

    Loving the fresh take on sets on Y&R; long overdue in my opinion! Kudos to the producers and set designers! Definite breath of fresh air!

    Victor will look right at home in the penthouse looking down on Genoa City! Great job.

    It’s lipstick on a pig – or in Victor’s case, Formaldehyde in a corpse.

    MAB had done terrible damage to Y&R. And so far, all I see is JFP continueing the decline. With Phyllis still front and center in Jack’s storyline, and Victor still doing the same thing AND being front and center, I’ve stopped watching.
    And this time, maybe for good.

    With all the talent out there, why did TIIC insist on inflicting another failed producer like JFP on the show? I’m starting to believe they want Y&R to fail much like the intended destruction of AMC.

    Yeah but who designed Adam’s guest house that Sharon has been living in?

    It looks like the unibomber would live therer!

    Love it. A breath of fresh air. Very bright and modern. I f the storylines can get better, this can be the best soap. A long overdue change. I won’t miss the ranch at all.

    Thank you for sharing this, Michael.

    I think their new penthouse is gorgeous and befitting of Victor and Nikki Newman. I miss the ranch, but I can’t wait to see what they do with it [the ranch] when they are ready for someone else to move into the penthouse – and you know they will not want to abandon that gorgeous set.

    I also like that Victor and Nikki are still showcased and not on only once a week or on occasion as most of us had feared for the veterans.

    Improving the sets, I think Jill and company get a B+. I am glad they got rid of those hideous FAKE geraniums at Adam’s place. However, I’m still not convinced about the storylines yet.

      I think the storylines are in transition, it hasn’t been that long, and a good story line needs time to set up and put into play. I believe right now the show is doing filler because they have to put something on the air- whatever MAB plotted out a year ago was tossed out and a new game plan has to be put together. For some fans it is not changing quick enough, I like this pace, and I’m not complaining– yet- check me out in a year time- because I think it going take that long before we are really going to notice anything. Right now, changes to the sets, some new music, different camera shots are being done to give it updated look and the rest only time will tell.

        I am okay with the pace. I just do not like what they are doing to Kevin and I am pretty sure wherever they are going with Kyle and Phyllis it is going to be a big mess.

        They haven’t made me really mad yet except at the firing of Marcy Rylan. They really could have used that cute and talented girl. I think they were wrong there.

      I agree that I like that Victor and Nikki are being show cased and together. It is so nice to see them working together to take care of their family like normal people do …

    All the new sets since Jill came into the series have been beautiful. My only wish is that the ranch stayed and was simply updated, and that Katherine’s home stayed its size, and just added that extra wall. But over-all, AMAZING changes. I’m thoroughly impressed!

    Ya don’t like it at all. Not his character or style. I am afraid this was a BIG fail. Sorry

    Sorry but I guess I hate change, and I really don’t like the new gray sterile penthouse. It is just not cozy like the ranch house was. The only houses I like on the show are Jack’s house, although now they have the dining room door closed, which makes it a little bit depressing, and I LOVE Sharon’s home at the ranch. Please dont change that one. Stained glass and tiffany lamps, NOT the gray shiny penthouse, for me. Ill always stick with YR though. It has always been there for me 🙂

      The doors to Jack’s dining are closed because they have shrunk the set. All the elements are there, but if you really looked it is all crammed together- the dining room doors were never that close to the fireplace ever. They also shrunk Katherine’s living room. I guess they needed to make room for all these new sets. And a friend of mine has suggested since a soap is more about the dialogue than the action, large sets are a waste and costly to upkeep, which might explaining the shrinking sets too. It just looks odd to me, but I will get accustom to it I suppose- and whenever they rebuilt the ranch, it will not be as big as it was either.

      I agree, Melody. I really like Nick’s tack house, especially the board games on the credenza. It feels and looks like a home with children in it.

      It’s too bad Billy & Victoria’s “Father Knows Best” home is not much fun. It seems to be fun when Reed or Delia comes to visit.

      Speaking of Sharon’s house, is the dragonfly chair new or have I just never noticed it before? I am noticing more and more of Jill Farren Phelp’s decorating touches like real flowers or very good silk ones throughout Jabot and Newman and Adam’s house.

    P.S, PLEASE give Katherine Chancellor a NEW “unblue” dining room:)

    I love new sets. The Newman ranch should have been torched long ago. New sets bring energy and a new way of seeing the characters. They should utilize more 4 wall sets like GL did. Soaps are not taped before an audience, so they should be more realistic.

    Love the new set! Please tell me where the gray sofas are from!

    in Victor Newman’s new home I’ve noticed lately new wing chairs that are light blue w. a square pattern on them. Where can I buy the chiar or fabric?

    I love Victor’s new light gray wing chair. Who makes it and is it available for the general public?

    I LOVE the new set used for Victoria & Billy’s living room. Where can I find the gray sofa & love seat? Also love the teal accents used for club chair & drapes!

    I love the lavender dining room chairs at Devon’s place. Where can I get some like those or similar to them?

    Where did the table lamp, “the one next to the stairs” in the Newman penthouse come from?

OLTL Alum Renee Elise Goldsberry On Performing Her Showstopper “Satisfied” In ‘Hamilton’ Premiering On Disney+ Today

We loved her as Evangeline Williamson on One Life to Live, and the Broadway world loved her in her Tony Award-winning role as Angelica Schuyler in the musical Hamilton, which today bows on the filmed version on Disney+.  Of course, we are talking about the fabulous Renee Elise Goldsberry who has talent abounds.

In Hamilton, Goldsberry performs a showstopper “Satisfied” as Angelica makes the ultimate sacrifice giving up the man she loves Hamilton played by Lin-Manuel Miranda) to her sister for her sister, Eliza’s (Phillipa Soo) happiness.

Now taking the version of this memorable moment in the theatre and bringing it to life on film also makes for an exciting performance and piece of creative work.

In an interview with the Los Angeles Times out today, Renee talks about executing this number in the show just right: “There are things that are technically challenging about that number: on top of the words, there’s the movement and the fact that we’re doing the previous number in reverse the whole time. It was a lot of things to juggle, but that was never hard, that was all intellectual. Even the rap was relatively easy. The most challenging part to sing is that final toast.This is an extremely well-written song. Every word is crafted to analytically take this woman on an emotional, life-altering decision for these three lives. That decision was such a monumentally painful and beautiful thing to do that by the time I’d get to that moment in which she makes that decision, I was so devastated that it was hard to sing that toast. She’s conflicted because, clearly, she wants to stay around this guy, she recognizes his brilliance, but she gets that Eliza is the one. So I imagine this woman having to give this toast to this community, in spite of the pain she felt.I was always worried that somehow or another, I wouldn’t be able to live up to the brilliance of the end of that song because emotionally, I was just trying to manage it. It took me maybe until Broadway to feel OK about it.”

When asked how she felt about seeing “Satisfied” in the movie version of Hamilton available everywhere Friday on Disney+, Goldsberry added: :Seeing it from the audience’s point of view for the first time, I realized there was a whole ‘nother level of storytelling that was going on, separate from me. I mean, Howell Binkley’s lighting design!  And Andy Blankenbuehler’s brilliant choreography, which I could always only see in my peripheral vision. It’s a huge number with the entire company onstage just killing it and basically turning back time with their bodies, and I’m standing in the middle, talking out like a deer in the headlights to the audience about a burst of things that I have to grapple with immediately. I’m very grateful that he made my job much easier.”

Watch a clip of Renee’s performance in the film version of Hamilton below.

Now, let us know if you are planning to watch the highly-anticipated Hamilton over the fourth of July weekend via the comment section and if you are excited to see Renee in her award-winning winning in it?

B&B’s Supervising Producer, Casey Kasprzyk Shares: “Just Finished Viewing Our First Produced Episode Since Starting Production Back Up!”

In a tweet late on Thursday, the supervising producer of The Bold and the Beautiful, Casey Kasprzyk, shared his enthusiasm at completing the first major hurdle for the soap going back into production during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Showing a viewing copy on disc of the first new episode produced for B&B in months, Casey said: “Just finished viewing our first produced episode since starting production back up! So proud of Team Bold & Beautiful. Great shows airing soon”

The disc had airshow number #8321 on it, and a question mark as to when it will make it to air.

The fact that The Bold and the Beautiful is the first daytime drama to get one new episode completed is a step forward amidst the spike in COVID-19 cases in Los Angeles County and the state of California.

Now soap fans will have to wait and see if General Hospital and The Young and the Restless begin their productions in the middle of July; as last projected by both series, or if there will be further delays due to the ongoing crisis for the safety of everyone involved at the shows.

So, excited to learn Casey’s news that there is a new episode of B&B on the horizon for viewers to see? Comment below.

‘Strahan, Sara and Keke’ Canceled by ABC; Show Aired In Timeslot That Once Housed ‘All My Children’

No matter a network tries to do, replacing All My Children, which ran for 41 years on ABC has remained as everyone that follows the world of daytime drama knows, problematic.  Now come word via Page Six that Strahan, Sara and Keke has been canceled.

The show hosted by Michael Strahan, Sara Haines and Keke Palmer if you recall, replaced the foodie show, The Chew which ran for seven seasons and was the first show to air in the timeslot that belonged for over four decades to All My Children. 

Back in March of this year, Strahan, Sara and Keke took a break to make way for ABC’s News  Pandemic: What You Need to Know, a daily coronavirus report anchored by Amy Robach, Dr. Jen Ashton and sometimes TJ Holmes.

However, because the show did well in that two-week experimental run it morphed into GMA 3: What You Need to Know.  The new version of the show also talked about hot topics in the current news cycle, as well.

ABC’s Catherine McKenzie began producing the “GMA3” show four months ago and the network officially announced her as Executive Producer of the program on Thursday.

While ABC has yet to officially announce Strahan, Sara and Keke is over, a spokesperson told Page Six: “We’re proud of our teams at ‘SSK’ and ‘GMA3’ and how quickly they transitioned to producing a daily show to give people the news and information they need during an unprecedented pandemic, and conversations continue about how the show will evolve in the months ahead.”

It appears that Strahan, Sara and Keke won’t be returning; the future as many of their staff have transitioned over to ‘GMA 3’ with producers from ABC News Live, (the streaming division), helmed by McKenzie.

As for the futures of Strahan, Haines and Palmer; Strahan will continues to host Good Morning America, and they are all actively under contract with the network.

So, what do you think of  ‘Strahan, Sara and Kek’e being replaced by ‘GMA 3: What You  Need to Know’?  How long do you think that show will last in the timeslot once taken up by residents of Pine Valley? Comment below.
