Today's News: Our Take - Maura West Takes General Hospital By Storm
Seattle Pi - over 3 years
How's it feel to play a lady gangster? Usually the women in crime families are home, in deep denial, making the pasta! There are no rules when you've been raised in a world like that - and that's very freeing as an actor. How do you make sure that the audience doesn't turn on you? Mobsters go home to their families at night and eat dinner, just like you and me. Sometimes I'll see a magazine article where they'll say Maura West and in parentheses they have "ex-Carly ATWT" and "ex-Diane Y&R" and I'll go, "Huh?" I met some wonderful people at Y&R but that experience is not something my heart aches over, not something I miss at all. Clearly there was no intention to make Diane a viable character at that time, so I probably would have been off by now anyway. [...] there was a GH storyline [in 1990] where Julian killed their sister, Olivia, because she wanted to be boss. Basically, she was there to drop off Kiki [Kristen Alderson] and then leave town. [...] we can't exact ...

'General Hospital' Bringing Back Actors ... As New Characters
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Some soap opera trickery might be going down in order to get "One Life to Live" actors back on "General Hospital." When "One Life to Live" wrapped in January 2012 and its plans to move it online fell through, Michael Easton, Roger Howarth and Kristen Alderson moved over to "General Hospital" playing their "OLTL" characters. However, "One Life to Live" returns to life on Monday, April 29 and Prospect Park, the company behind the revival, has called back its actors and their characters. Now TV Guide reports "General Hospital" may bring Easton, Howarth and Alderson back to Port Charles as ... completely new characters. By doing so, ABC hopes to avoid legal problems with Prospect Park. "Prospect Park understands that ‘General Hospital’ has featured Llanview transplants Michael Easton (John) and Kristen Alderson (Starr) among others while we arranged production of the new version of ‘One Life to Live.’ These characters, who we own under our agreement, are obviously essential ...

'General Hospital' Cast Shakeup For 'One Life To Live'?
Huffington Post - about 4 years
"One Life to Live" actors Roger Howarth, Michael Easton and Kristen Alderson may have to leave "General Hospital" to rejoin the newly revived "OLTL" online. According to Daytime Confidential, Howarth, Easton and Alderson will leave "General Hospital" as per an agreement between ABC and Prospect Park. The actors are expected to help launch "One Life to Live" on Prospect Park's The Online Network, but could return to "General Hospital" after "OLTL" launches. "Prospect Park realizes these three characters could initially help draw fans to the new 'One Life,'" a source told Daytime Confidential. "There are ongoing talks between ABC and Prospect Park about the characters returning to 'General Hospital' at some point, which could be fine with [Prospect Park] as they eventually want to go much younger with their soaps." A rep for ABC told TVLine that the network and Prospect Park are in ongoing collaborative conversations. "We have various strategies in place depending on th ...

PHOTOS: First Graders Perform Original Play
Glenview Patch - almost 5 years
Shared from District 30: Wescott School first graders celebrated Earth Day by performing a new musical titled, "Joe Creek", written by music teacher Bill Vaananen. Vaananen says that it is a memoir of his days growing up in Oklahoma, where he spent summers down at Joe Creek exploring nature, digging forts, capturing fish, frogs, tadpoles, crawdads, and pollywogs.  The show explored the ecosystem of the creek, and included songs such as "Joe Creek", "Big Bullfrog", "Toad Hunting Tonight", "Red-Tailed Hawk", "The Crawdad Song", "Thunderstorm", and "Butterflies."  Creative lyrics filled Wescott's gymnasium, giving the audience a real feel as to what it must be like as a child of the 1960's, who grew up near a waterway in Tulsa, Oklahoma that was "teeming with life, not concrete," which Vaananen wrote in his script. The end of the song "Joe Creek" describes it best:  "Some folks climb the ladder of success, I climb in a tree! Some folks pay for a swimming pool, I swim here for ...

'General Hospital' Renewed; 'The Revolution' Canceled
Huffington Post - almost 5 years
"The Revolution" is over. Long live "General Hospital." ABC has pulled the plug on its fledgling healthy lifestyle program "The Revolution" after less than a year on air, keeping "General Hospital" as part of its daytime schedule, HuffPost TV has confirmed. Deadline.com was first to report the news of the renewal and cancellation. ABC will also introduce a summer afternoon version of "Good Morning America." "The Revolution" replaced "One Life to Live" in January after food program "The Chew" took "All My Children's" old timeslot. Fans were worried about the fate of "GH" after the network announced Katie Couric's talk show would take the soap's 3 p.m. ET timeslot. There was some talk of "GH" getting a weeknight summer run, but with the cancellation of "The Revolution," "General Hospital" is safe. ABC canceled both "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" in 2011, with "AMC" ending in September 2011 and "OLTL" wrapping up in January 2012. There were plans for both soaps ...
