The Soap Box - March/13th





March 26th, 1973 was the debut episode of The Young and the Restless.  So those of us who can add, realize that we are coming up on the 40th anniversary of the show!!

Y&R has been celebrating this milestone with a different twist to the beginning of the shows.  For the past four episodes Y&R has begun by featuring a member of the cast.  Beginning last Friday with Terry Lester who plays Jack Abbott.  This Monday featured Joshua Morrow, who plays Nick Newman.  Tuesday was Michael Muhney, who plays Adam Newman.  And today featured Michelle Stafford, who of course plays the woman we all love to hate - Phyllis Newman (Summers, Romalotti, Abbott, Newman).

Each day, each actor speaks to the character they portray on the show.  They describe the plot line of the character - and give insight into the mind of the people we've grown so attached to over the years.

I absolutely love that Y&R is doing this!  I hope they continue to do so throughout the month of March - I have a feeling that they just might, since they started it 18 days before the actual anniversary date.

Here's hoping!
