Anybody see the movie or the stage musical HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH? That's all I could think when I was watching Zoe perform on "New Beginnings". The song sounded exactly like the opening number from that show. I just checked out his bio on his website, and although he had a major role in Boy's George's musical TABOO, he never played Hedwig, which is unfortunate, because he would rock that show. His stage bio is VERY impressive. I used to work in the NY theatre industry, and I recognized A LOT of the projects he has done. I'll be very sad to see he and Bianca leave the show. They have added something very new and fresh to daytime tv.
I'm really glad the writers gave Erica that monologue yesterday. It was so obviously geared toward AMC's conservative audience, but who knows, maybe because Susan Lucci endorsed transgender tolerance, her conservative fans, such as my grandmother, may open their minds a bit.
Lucci really does know how to sell those monologues. Probably because that's all she ever really does, even when she is supposed to be acting in a scene with someone else! When she had that scene with Ava, where she though Ava was Lily, I thought to myself that only Erica could have a full conversation with someone without the other person saying a word!
Oh, please please please let this baby snatching storyline end quickly! The idea that someone can just walk into a hospital and steal a baby like that, with or without a nurse's strike, is just ludicrous! Maternity wards and nurseries are guarded like Fort Knox! I love AMC, but they really need to write more believable hospital scenes. Joe Martin slowly telling Tad that he will "ask around" about Kate's whereabouts was ridiculous! The whole thing was painful to watch.
On a good note, I read that it is official that Thorsten Kay is staying on the show. I had said last year that it looked like he would be leaving. That's good news for Alicia Minshew, because Kendall needs Zach to make her less annoying.
