Kim Zimmer

Entering its second smash year at the Westside Theatre, this intimate collection of stories by Nora Ephron and Delia Ephron, directed by Karen Carpenter and produced by Daryl Roth, is based on the best-selling book by Ilene Beckerman.

Like the book, the show uses clothing and accessories and the memories they trigger to tell funny and poignant stories that everyone can relate to.

Joining Kim Zimmer will be Katrina Bowden (“30 Rock”), Sabrina Le Beauf (“The Cosby Show”), Orfeh (Legally Blonde the Musical), and Barbara Rhoades (The Goodbye Girl).

Steamboat: Most Loved Soap.
“Today’s Episode of Steamboat is Brought To You By Lactene for milky hair. It’s Not Silky, It’s Milky, With Lactene.”

This is the phrase that ends episode one and begins every episode thereafter of the most talked about, new online soap “Steamboat”, which was created by Michael O’Leary (ex-Rick Bauer, GL) with help from Scott Bryce (ex-Craig Montgomery, ATWT and ex-Dr. Crosby, OLTL).

It’s described as a medium between All My Children and The Office, and it is great.

The show is about the behind-the-scenes of a failing soap called “Steamboat.”

It features popular soap actors like Kim Zimmer (ex-Reva Lewis, GL; Rhonda), Justin Deas (ex-Buzz Cooper, GL; Scott), Orlagh Cassidy (ex-Doris Wolfe, GL; Gwen), Michael Park (Jack Snyder, ATWT; Dirk), newcomer Jacquelina DeMarco (Candy), Kurt McKinney (ex-Matt Reardon, GL; Ellis, ATWT; Daniel), Beth Chamberlin (ex-Beth Spaulding, GL; Tabitha), and Michael O’Leary (Michael).

With this stellar cast, no wonder “Steamboat” has many fans and followers.

They already have five episodes online, but don’t fret – they’re only a few minutes each. It won’t take long to catch up.

We have everyone who is trying to get their Emmy, mixed in with the show failing miserably. This satirical web series is available on YouTube, and has finished taping the first season.

I don’t watch the other web series that are out there. Not because I don’t like the actors and actresses, or anything, but I just don’t get the appeal.

But “Steamboat” isn’t like the others.

It’s comedic, featuring great writing and great delivery by a top notch cast.

Take a look at episode one.

It’s a very entertaining series end everyone who loves soaps should watch it.

And remamber: It’s not silky, it’s milky. With Lactene.

It is so great to have the opportunity to get up close and personal with your favorite soap star.
It really is just pure fun!
Most of the soap actors/actresses who I have met over the years are so gracious and friendly and so happy to meet and greet the fans.
At any rate, while perusing the internet, I found what looks to be a very interesting soap event this weekend.
If I lived nearby, I would be there in a heartbeat.
But as it is, I’m passing the info on to you, in case you live in the Hudson Valley, New York area.
The event includes two question and answer sessions with the stars and is set for Saturday and Sunday at the Villa Roma Resort and Conference Center, 356 Villa Roma Road, Callicoon, New York.
Proceeds go to Love Our Children USA, a nonprofit group fighting to protect children from violence.
The soap stars attending are Mark Lawson (Brody/OLTL), Ilene Kristen (Roxy/OLTL), Billy Magnusson (Casey/ATWT), Robert Newman (Josh/GL), Chrishell Strause (Amanda/AMC), Jacob Young (JR/All My Children), Caitlin Van Zandt Ashlee/GL), and Kim Zimmer, (Reva/GL).
