Kevin Spirtas, who appeared on Broadway in The Boy from Oz and is best known for his work on the soap opera "Days of Our Lives," stars in the New York Musical Theatre Festival (NYMF) production of the soap opera musical Legacy Falls. Here, he picks his favorite songs for "Soap'n Around" as part of Playbill.com's Playbill Playlist series.
Legacy Falls, which features a book by James Burn and Ian Poitier and a score by Burns, is offered July 17 at 1 PM, July 19 at 8 PM, July 20 at 5 PM and July 24 at 9 PM.
Here's how NYMF bills the musical: "Legacy Falls is the side-splitting new musical that dishes the dirt on soaps. Will there be hirings and firings? Will there be backstabbing and bitchiness? Will there be romances and hair-pulling catfights? Will there be a slightly unrealistic onscreen earthquake? Yes…Yes, there will be. Tune in to this tuneful frolic through the on- and off-screen drama of America’s favorite daytime soap opera, Legacy Falls!"
Since Spirtas, a soap opera star, is among the cast of the soap-inspired musical, Playbill.com has asked the actor to pick his favorite songs from or relating to soap operas and tell us why they made his list.
The cast also features Wilson Bridges, Nikki Van Cassele, Liz Fye, Jonathan Hawkins, Jacob Hoffman, Dennis Holland, Tara Hugo, Christy Morton, Joe Paparella, Erin Leigh Peck and Rachel Stern.
You're invited to spend an evening filled with personal tales of difficult choices, bad breaks, worse men and some of the most glorious songs ever written. It's an intimate evening, up close with a legend.
So pull up a chair and order up a drink. Because she's got a life to sing. Tickets as low as $85!
