    Former GL Star Hits Broadway

    Friday, May 04 2007

    David Andrew MacDonald (
    You can catch one of GL's most beloved villains, David Andrew MacDonald (Edmund Winslow), in a new production on Broadway. After the political intrigue and chaos of San Cristobel and a torturous love affair with Cassie, Edmund left the scene and found himself incarcerated. In real life however, David Andrew MacDonald has resumed a highly successful career on stage. He's appeared in productions with local Shakespearean companies across the globe and now takes on the role of Lord Ashbrook in Coram Boy.

    Based on a best-selling children's novel by Jamila Gavin, Coram Boy is set in the England of the Eighteenth Century and follows two orphans as they wind their way through divergent paths in life. One is the abandoned heir of a great fortune while the other was rescued from a slave ship. Together, they share a great adventure which audiences are bound to enjoy. The play promises a gorgeous and complex set, luxuriant costumes and a cast of over forty performers, all bolstered by the music of Handel and original music by Adrian Sutton. It has already been a hit at the National Theatre in London where it had rave reviews. It was transported to New York in mid-April for previews before its big opening on Broadway this month at The Imperial Theatre, located in Manhattan at 249 West 45th Street.

    Tickets are currently available by calling (212) 239-6200 or visiting telecharge. For additional information, please visit the official site at this link.

    I HATE the Josh and Cassie storyline. I also agree with another person who commented on this. I find myself flipping to GH. I have watched GL for over 20 years and this story is ridiculous. Cassie is boring.

    He will do very well on Broadway...he is a born actor of the Shakespearan period

    you know,,,,, it wouldn't be a bad idea to bring Edmund back for a visit........ i think its just what Cassie needs.

    The story line between "Edmund" and "Cassie" was one of the best on GL. It gave hope that some people change when Edmund fell in love with Cassie and fought against the person he had been to become free to love and know love. The only problem is that writers for soaps want constant controversy, while fans want happy ever after. David Andrew MacDonald rocked as Edmund Winslow and his character is truly missed, almost as much as Phillip (Grant Alexander where are you?).
