First, there was “Grease Live!” Now, Eric Braeden (Victor Newman) and other stars of “The Young and the Restless” are bringing “Genoa City Live!” to NYCB Theatre in Westbury, New York. The fan tribute event is taking place on Sunday, February 21.
Dedicated to television’s top-rated daytime drama, “Genoa City Live!” features behind-the-scenes stories from Braeden, Christian LeBlanc (Michael Baldwin), Joshua Morrow (Nicholas Newman), Sean Carrigan (Ben Rayburn), Melissa Ordway (Abby Newman) and Robert Adamson (Noah Newman). The actors will take part in a Q&A session, share set-side secrets, and quiz fans on trivia about the soap.
“These events provide a unique opportunity for the cast members to thank our incredible fans for decades of support,” Braeden told Newsday.com.
“This is where you really get some time with the actors. There’s no velvet rope. No rushing the line,” added LeBlanc, noting that for the cast “it’s quality time for you to see what effect you have on people.”
