Soap stars sing, dance for musical revue
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- There's singing and dancing in a special stage show brought to you by stars of daytime TV. Three stars from "All My Children" and two stars from "General Hospital" are donating their time and their talent for the musical revue, "The World Goes 'Round."
"All My Children's" Bobbie Eakes is part of the Kander and Ebb musical revue, "The World Goes 'Round." The three-night affair will raise money to help out the L.A. Gay and Lesbian Center.
When "All My Children" was in New York, Eakes was on stage there, helping make money to fight AIDS.
"And we raised almost $3 million for them over a course of five years," said Eakes. "So we're starting out this year small, but we're hoping to build it to that same level."
For now, for as little as $25 you can see Eakes and her co-stars Natalie Hall and Jamie Luner.
"It's so exciting," said Luner. "I'm so proud to be a part of something that's this delightful."
"We all love performing together," said Hall. "We all come from musical backgrounds so this is something we're all excited to do with one another."
"We've got an incredible show here," said Luner. "We've got a little gem, actually. We really do."
The show also includes actors Bradford Anderson and Brandon Barash.
"Being able to use talents that I have put to bed for awhile and bring them back for a great cause is a great fusion of wonderful things," said Anderson.
"Four thousand lives are affected every year by this center in a good way as it relates to HIV and AIDS," said Barash.
"The World Goes' Round" takes the stage Thursday, Saturday and Sunday nights at the Renberg Theatre in Hollywood.
