I did not know this was a reading, thought I was seeing a play which I prefer. I totally enjoyed the cast and was able to talk with Jacob Young before the performance. I am not a fan of readings.

I liked it overall, but felt the cost was too high for the event. I did not know this was a reading. I thought it was a production. I would price it $25 per ticket.

Very entertaining - was like "watching" a radio show from the '50s. And the cast could not have been better - really enjoyed it.

Description

_Soap Fan Mystery Theatre _kicks off with a new series of staged readings featuring Hollywood favorites, the most popular stars of Daytime television, and rarely performed Agatha Christie mysteries at The Writers Guild Theater in Beverly Hills.

Stage and screen favorite Stefanie Powers, TV’s iconic Jennifer Hart, stars in Agatha Christie’s exciting thriller, The Unexpected Guest with a trio of stars from ABC’s All My Children: Vincent Irizarry, this year’s Daytime Emmy-Winner for Outstanding Supporting Actor (AMC’s Dr. David Hayward), Daytime Emmy-Winner Jacob Young (AMC’s JR Chandler), and Adam Mayfield (AMC’s Scott Chandler). After 40 years of taping in New York City, All My Children has recently moved production to Los Angeles. This is the first time the stars of __All My Children __will appear together on stage in Southern California. The role of the police inspector will be read by Robert Newman, who starred as Joshua Lewis for 28 years on The Guiding Light and recently finished a long run in the off-Broadway musical “Sessions.” Broadway star Constance Towers (__General Hospital’s infamous villain Helena Cassadine)__ brings her talents to the stage to round out the all-star cast.

Agatha Christie is the most widely published author of all-time. Only the Bible has outsold her collective book sales of over 4 __billio__n copies. Her stage play, “The Mousetrap”, is still running in London’s West End after 57 continuous years. This series of plays is being produced by HOO R US Productions, a partnership between Jacob Young and Mark Rozzano. Mark was an Associate Producer of “Disney’s Beauty and the Beast” on Broadway, which after a 13 year run is now the seventh longest running show in Broadway history. Mark and Jacob first worked together when Jacob made his Broadway debut as the loveable candlestick Lumiere singing “Be Our Guest” at night while starring in All My Children during the day.
