(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — “One Life to Live’s” teen set to preview the show’s upcoming musical “Starr X’d Lovers” on “The View.”

Mark your calendars. This Friday (May 14th), Llanview’s younger generation will be giving fans a special sneak peek at the three-day musical exstravaganza. However, don’t expect the actors to be performing live on stage of the popular ABC gabfest. The number will be taped the day before at “The View’s” studios, which are in the same building as “One Life to Live.”

Among those set to perform on “The View” are: Kristen Alderson (Starr), Eddie Alderson (Matthew), Kelley Missal (Danielle), Shenell Edmonds (Destiny), Lenny Platt (Nate), J. J. Singleton (Darren), and several extras.

“Starr X’d Lovers: The Musical” will air on “OLTL” May 14th, 17th, and 18th, and will feature eight original songs, along with several others. It will also contain choreography from Broadway’s A.C. Ciulla. The soundtrack is currently available on iTunes. The sound track also includes a special bonus feature — three versions of the widely popular 1986-91 “OLTL” opening (originally sung by Peabo Bryson) — performed by Kassie DePaiva (Blair), Jason Tam (Markko) & Brittany Underwood (Langston), and Mark Lawson (Brody).

In addition, the May 18th episode will all be available with special online commentary from Kristen Alderson (Starr) and Brandon Buddy (Cole) on the full episode player at abc.com once that day’s episode has aired on ABC and SOAPnet.
