Annie, I agree.Lately he’s been looking better than ever. I live in San Diego, only a couple hrs. away. If I can persuade my daughter to take ne, I’m going, but being 84 I don’t think I’d be able to wait in a line long enough to get him to sign a book.

I have always loved him as well. It’s funny when they show old clips, (case in point the first wedding a couple of weeks back). He was so skinny, he looked so different. I know being 30 years younger has alot to do with it. But he does look better in his later years. I love how when he is mad, he gets real quiet for a minute or two, and then he lets go with one of hs mighty roars. Classic.

Eric Braeden has certainly led a very interesting life, and I imagine the book will help us get to know the real Mr. B. If it’s half as fun and full of life stories as Jeanne Cooper’s autobiography, it will be well worth the read. I felt, as I read “Not Young, Still Restless” by the inimitable and still very much missed Jeanne C., that I was sitting across the dinner table from her as she related her life and times to me. It was that good! If you haven’t read it yet, but still intend to, you’re in for… Read more »

Here is the premise of the show: After the ‘Broadway Disher’ (Lesli Margherita) leaks news of a top secret, in-the-works, new mega musical, the Broadway community goes off-the-charts batty. Top-of-their-game Broadway Producers Cheryl Philips (Lillias White) and Steve Jones (James Monroe Iglehart), arch enemies, pounce. Who will get the rights? Will way-out-of-their-comfort-zone creators Kaye (Ashley Park) and Bobby (Michael Urie) manage to deliver a draft of the show before their marriage implodes? Will Director/Choreographer Zoey Taylor (Ariana DeBose) send the show’s budget into a free fall with her wildly ambitious vision?  Will Broadway Diva Emma-Olivia (Sarah Stiles) get a Schmackery’s cookie (with Sprinkles) named in her honor? Will newbie Agent Maxwell Fernsby (George Salazar) step into his new big shoes? And will Science Consultant Andrew Barth Feldman (Andrew Barth Feldman) protect the integrity and authenticity of the in-the-works mega musical, before he needs to leave this top secret show to star in a new Broadway musical?

As The Curtain Rises proudly supports The Actor’s Fund, the Broadway Podcast Network Frontline Initiative, and is a sponsored project of IFP (www.ifp.org).

Check out previous episodes of the podcast here.
