The Season Two Premiere of The Bay – Watch the Webisode!

The Bay is back!  Today, season two finally kicks-off right right where the season one cliffhanger left fans of the hit web series.

In the premiere, Zoey and Brian’s bizarre wedding unfolds, as Lee is presumably caught in an explosion with already two casualities reported, and we find an evil Steve Jensen lurking, and a drunk Janice Ramos in some interesting, shall we say,  bar-action!

Watch Tristan Rogers, Mary Beth Evans, Martha Madison, Kristos Andrews, Dylan Bruce, Taylor Stanley, Jed Allen, Charles Shaughnessy and more in the first installment of the new season from Gregori J. Martin’s, The Bay after the jump.

Then, let us know what you thought of the premiere webisode! And, what you would like to see happen to your favorite residents of Bay City!

    YES! Thank goodness this show is back. With so few soaps left, this really is one of the only shows left worth watching. Thanks to everyone at The Bay for continuing to bring us wonderfully entertaining and high quality soapy goodness! Loved, loved Harold and Zoey, and Lillly Melgar plays such a wonderful drunk Janice. And of course I can’t wait to see what happened to Lee. Poor Sara! LOVE THE BAY!!

    I’m so glad to see The Bay return. I’ve missed it. The Janice/Christine scenes in the bar were great, as were all of the reactions at the wedding. Harold and Zoey are perfect as father and daughter (and the Santa Barbara shout-out was fantastic). Can’t wait for more . . . especially regarding whether Lee was really caught in that explosion.

    Thank God for The Bay! In a world where soaps are a dying breed, we have a great new show that is on its way up! I say long after all the other soaps are gone, we’ll still be enjoying Gregori’s masterpiece!

    Long live The Bay!

    The Bay is back! I love The Bay! I got interested when I heard Mary Beth Evans was going to play a pivotal role in it…I’ve always loved her.

    I’ve watched The Bay since its inception, and wow! I just love the cast that Gregori Martin has assembled. From Lane Davies, Charles Shaughnessy, and Jed Allan to Martha Madison and Matthew Ashford as well as the aforementioned Mary Beth Evans…It’s a real treat.

    Through the Bay, I’ve come to love even more actors and actresses than the ones I anticipated seeing when the show started. Lily, Taylor Stanley, Sandra Ferguson, Real Andrews…They’ve all done such a great job in this continuing drama!

    I have fun watching The Bay! May the fun continue for years to come…

    Thank you for this BAY article! I’m so glad that we have something else to watch that’s so worth watching now that so many of our soaps are gone. Jed and Taylor are sooooo flippin’ good as father and daughter. You just believe every word they say. And I was really impressed with Lilly Melgar and Sandra Dee Robinson in their bar scene. Lilly’s drunk hit every note just wonderfully, and Christine has a layer of sanity beneath all that wack! It’s so great to see these characters with so many dimensions. Mary Beth Evans was the reason i started watching The BAY, but now I’m hooked on the great plots that Gregori has woven for everyone. And one more thing. That bartender had more presence in his pinky than alot of people on hit primetime shows today. Can’t wait for the rest of the season!

    Yay The Bay is back better than ever. I love everything about this show, can’t wait to see what happens to the Garret’s next week. Mary Beth Evans is fab as wealthy socialite Sara Garret and the creator Gregori J Martin is amazing 🙂

    Another great webisode. There’s more drama and action in 10 minutes than I see on most soaps in an hour long episode. Love it!! Keep it coming.

    Thanks for another quality production! The Bay has a dream cast! Love how the soap keeps the genre updated and fresh while maintaing the elements of a great soap. It should be on primetime.

GH’s Mark Lawson Fuels At-Home Workout With Soap Opera Competition: “Dante, Dante, Dante, Dominic, Dominic, Dominic … But What About Dustin?”

As fans and colleagues of General Hospital and former One Life to Live star, Mark Lawson (Dustin, GH) know, he often posts on his Instagram account at-home workouts from his garage including: exercises with: kettlebells and free weights. In real-life, Lawson is a fitness guru, as well.

In one of his most recent posts over the holiday weekend, Mark used the constant chatter of a potential return of Dominic Zamprogna to GH to reprise his role of Dante Falconeri (which would pit Mark’s school teacher alter-ego Dustin at-odds with Dante, for the love of Lulu (Emme Rylan)) to charge up his workout routine! So what’s a guy to do?  Bicep curls!

Next, fueling his workout in a hilarious send-up, Lawson, as he is curling dumbbells remarks: “You want Dante back? Dante, Dante, Dante … Dominic,Dominic,Dominic … It’s all you talk about.  It’s all you care about, but what about Dustin?  What’s up with Dustin?  Where’s good guy Dustin? School teacher Dustin, who never shot nobody.  Never hurt anybody and all he wanted was a girlfriend.   All everybody talks about is Dante, Dante, Dante. Dominic, Dominic, Dominic.”

You can watch Mark’s IG post below!

Then let us know, if you hope there will be some healthy soap opera competition for the love of Lulu down the line between Dustin and Dante, if Dominic returns to the show.  If he does return, would you be Team Dustin or Team Dante? Share your thoughts via the comment section.

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?
