OLTL's Zimmer Is Still Wicked!

ZimmerWicked.jpg

Los Angeles area fans of Kim Zimmer (Echo, ONE LIFE TO LIVE) have until this Sunday, March 15, to see the actress in the musical Wicked, playing at the Pantages Theater in Hollywood! The four-time Emmy winner plays Madame Morrible in the popular, long-running musical that looks at life in the Land of Oz prior to Dorothy's arrival.

"Each performance is naturally fresh," Zimmer tells Soaps In Depth, "because we have other actors come in and take over when someone has a day off. Things happen all the time that keeps each show different." And what happens if she ever temporarily forgets a line? "I'll ad lib until something sounds familiar," she chuckles. "The kids in the show will look me and say, 'How did you do that?' There are only two spots I'm notorious about forgetting, but I've gotten to the point where I get through them."

Dorothy's journey to Oz was a surreal fantasy, part dream/part nightmare — and believe her, Zimmer can relate! "I had the actor's ultimate nightmare — being lost in the bowels of the theater and not being able to find my costume," Zimmer recounts of what happened one night when the show was playing in San Diego. "My dressing room was quite a walk from where I made my entrance." The actress, who was already fitted with a microphone, kept yelling out "Coming! I'm coming!" as she made her way to the stage while simultaneously getting (mostly) dressed. "I made it on stage, but my dress was wide open in the back. Another character was trying to help zip me up!"

The good news, Zimmer adds, is that ever since she went through that mini-ordeal, "I haven't had that nightmare since!"

GH Friday Recap: Guess Who's Dying?!

AvaAverySilas.jpg

Poor little Avery Corinthos was being yanked and tugged in every direction like a Stretch Armstrong doll. The good news for the cutie was that everyone wanted her -- Sonny, Ava and Michael. Forget that we're talking about a gangster, an assumed dead woman and a man using her for revenge.

After witnessing her own memorial service, Ava defied all logic by insisting on going on the run in the frigid New York weather with her bare-armed baby. Delia and Silas finally talked some sense into her, pointing out that a) there'd be a manhunt out for the baby's kidnapper and b) when she was caught, it'd be back to a prison cell!

All that said, Ava and Silas returned empty-handed to her NYC hospital room, where she insisted on hiding out in Port Charles, close to her daughters. "Why can't I think of a way out?" she wondered. "It wouldn't matter even if you did think of something," Silas answered. Ava turned and looked at him curiously. He continued, "You're dying." Say whaaaaaat?

Carly sensed something was off when they returned to Sonny's house after the custody hearing. He made it clear that no way, no how was he going to let Michael raise his child. With that, he called Morgan and told him that a private plane was waiting for him, Kiki and Avery at the airport. It would take them to his island, where Michael couldn't get his hands on Sonny's daughter. Carly pointed out that he was making himself, as well as Morgan and Kiki, kidnappers! It didn't matter to Sonny. He refused to surrender to Michael!

Meanwhile, Tracy told Michael how proud she was of him for pulling a few strings to get custody of Avery. Although he denied that he had anything to do with the judge swap, Tracy summed it up as "poetic justice." While Alice prepped the mansion for the new baby, Michael went to Sonny's with two U.S. marshals as backup. Once there, they realized Avery wasn't! Michael cut right to the chase and ordered they arrest Sonny!

In Shadybrook, it was a battle of lethal cuckoo birds when a tightly wound Franco approached Luke, who was strapped in a bed and saying all sorts of nasty stuff about Franco's dad, Scotty. Franco shut him up in true Franco fashion... by trying to smother him with a pillow! Nina barged in just to in time to prevent a fatality. Luke suggested they work together to bust out of the joint. Surprisingly, Franco loved the idea. Nina, not so much. But, we might add, he talked her into it!

Nathan walked in on Spinelli kissing Maxie but -- according to Maxie -- Maxie was not kissing him back. Spinelli begged to differ. Nathan was ready to pummel the Jackal but was interrupted by an alert on Spinelli's computer that he got a hit on the whereabouts of Patricia Spencer! He ran out in a flash to tell Tracy, leaving a disappointed Nathan questioning Maxie if it was time to end their relationship!

Monday on GH, Silas has devastating news for Ava, Michael takes his vendetta one step further, and Nina and Franco find themselves in a very bad situation! Don't forget: 3:00 ET and 2:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!

GH Casts Pat Spencer!

DeeWallace.jpg

Patricia Spencer is coming home to Port Charles! Soaps In Depth has confirmed that GENERAL HOSPITAL has tapped E.T. mom Dee Wallace to play Luke and Bobbie's never-before-seen, long-lost older sister, Pat. There's no official word on when Wallace will make her first appearance.

"I have never had a greater challenge, never had more fun and never felt so much a part of a family on a set," Wallace shares in a statement. "You do more in one day on daytime than you do in a week on an episodic. I couldn't have more respect for colleagues than I do now."

"I play Harvey Specter's brother," Miller says... although that's about all he can reveal! "I can't really tell you a lot about him. But I'm allowed to tell you that!"

Although, he was able to hint that his character could potentially return for the fifth season when SUITS returns this summer. "We did a good job, so everybody seems to be happy," Miller confides. "I love that show, so I'd love to go back."

EmmyTrophies.jpg

After only streaming on the Internet last year, the Daytime Emmys are back on broadcast television! The National Academy Of Television Arts & Sciences has announced that the 42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards will air live on Sunday, April 26, at 8:00 p.m. ET on Pop. They also revealed that the Daytime Creative Arts Emmy Awards will be held Friday, April 24, at the Universal Hilton in Los Angeles. This year, the Daytime Emmys will be held at the historic Warner Bros. Studio lot on Stage 16, the home to iconic films like Casablanca, Jurassic Park and Ghostbusters.

"Our new partnership with the Pop network is an ideal platform to present our signature gala," said Bob Mauro, President, NATAS. "With the Warner Bros Studios as our venue, where so many great films and television shows have been made, coupled together with Michael Levitt, our executive producer, who created the 'TV Land Awards,' and has produced numerous live event specials including 'The Producers Guild Awards,' 'The Billboard Music Awards,' and 'E! Live from the Red Carpet' shows for the Golden Globes and Oscars®, this promises to be a very special telecast of the 42nd Annual Daytime Emmy® Awards."

Pop, the rebranded TV Guide Network, is also home to the re-airings of episodes of THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL and THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS, so it's a great place to host the Daytime Emmys.

GH Friday Recap: Ava Is Alive!

AvaIsAlive.jpg

"For someone who's been shot, dropped off a bridge and nearly drowned, you're making a remarkable recovery." It was as if Silas was channeling the millions of TV viewers when he told that to Ava, as she lie nestled comfortably in a bed in New York Methodist Hospital. That action-packed day a few weeks back was both unlucky and lucky for her. Yes, that string of events did happen to her. On the other hand, she mustered up the strength to swim to shore, wobble her way to a phone and call Silas, who had been nursing her back to health ever since.

Ava was stunned to learn from Silas that Sonny was pardoned and, as a result of his freedom, had obtained custody of Avery from Kiki. If that wasn't bad enough, now Michael was in on the tug o' war for the baby! Ava wouldn't have it. She'd never allow little Avery to be a pawn in Michael and Sonny's battle. But there was a teensy problem. If she were to return to Port Charles to fight for her daughter, she'd be sent right back to prison!

While Kiki, Julian and Morgan attempted to peacefully co-exist so they could plan a memorial service for Ava, Avery's custody proceeding got underway. Michael took to the stand to tell the court why he believed he'd make a better guardian than Sonny. That was a pretty easy task, considering that under Sonny's watch, his children had been kidnapped and shot. "I will dedicate my life to my sister's upbringing," Michael told the judge, to which GH viewers around the country shouted at their televisions, "She's not your sister, Bozo!"

Meanwhile at Shadybrook, Franco got a surprise visitor -- Olivia. Franco, however, seemed clueless to her identity. "You're Mama Celeste from the freezer aisle," he smiled warmly. Nope. Actually, she was there to lend her support, as they had something in common -- she also endured an overdose of LSD courtesy of Heather Webber. She told him about her hallucinations, including that she saw the devil. "He was Australian," she said. Franco replied, "Satan should be from 'down under.' Get it?" As Franco babbled off in his own direction, Olivia babbled off in hers. In the midst, she mentioned that Julian was the father of her baby, thinking it was falling on deaf ears. But was it?

After Olivia left, Franco got one more visitor -- Nina. Earlier at her court hearing, she went bonkers when she saw Avery, insisting that the adorable tot was her and Silas' daughter. It was pretty clear that she was nowhere near sane, and she needed more time back in Shadybrook. Shortly thereafter, when she returned to the mental hospital, she wanted to see Franco. She crawled up on his bed and quietly revealed that she faked being crazy so she could be with him. He leaned close to her and said, "You want to hear something even more super awesome? I'm faking, too."

Monday on GH, Sloan wants to cut a deal with Jake, Julian is not happy with Carlos, Ric resorts to name-calling in court, and Nina gives Franco what he's got comin'! Don't forget: 3:00 ET and 2:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!
