                    'One Life's' Kamar de los Reyes Now Appearing in 'Firehouse'

                    ( — Former "One Life to Live" star Kamar de los Reyes is currently living it up in Los Angeles, California these days and he's even got a "Firehouse" to prove it.

                    "Firehouse" for those whose minds were just in the gutter, is a play based on a true story where honor and loyalty clash with "doing the right thing" when a rookie fireman saves the life of a fellow firefighter instead of a 12 year-old girl, who is also in the burning building during a disastrous night in the South Bronx. Based on the fireman's decision, the community at large is outraged. "Firehouse" is a powerful drama that deals with race, the code of honor and even love.

                    In a tweet before opening night (which was last night), de los Reyes revealed that he was "feeling butterflies."

                    The play also stars Gerald Downey ("Leverage"), Jossara Jinaro ("Passions"), Ed Morrone ("The Fugitive Chronicles"), Elvis Nolasco ("Miracle Boys"), Bryan Rasmussen ("24"), and Jon Southwell ("What Would Jesus Do?").

                    For those interested in seeing the play, it runs only on Fridays at 8:00 PM now through April 29 at the Whitefire Theatre in Sherman Oaks, California. For tickets, call (323) 822-7898. Tickets are $22 if purchased in advance or $25 if purchased at the door. For more ticketing information, please visit the Firehouse page
