On "Soap," which ran in the late 1970s and early 1980s, Helmond played the rich and ditzy Jessica Tate to Mandan's flustered, philandering husband Chester. Romance might be a look at the same characters after 20 years have passed. Helmond will play Hetty, the old flame of the womanizing Gilbert (Mandan). Gilbert has a change of heart about his wayward habits and comes to appreciate Hetty anew when he discovers he has a heart condition. Simon's many plays include Walking to Waldheim & Happiness, L.A. Under Siege , A Rich Full Life and Elaine's Daughter. A Twilight Romance will run until March 2. Jules Aaron directs.
