Renee Elise as Evangeline (

Ever since fan favorite Renee Elise Goldsberry decided not to re-sign with the show last April, her One Life to Live character, Evangeline Williamson, has been lost in a coma, leaving her on-screen family and friends at a loss and her fans begging for her to come back! Although no word of a return has surfaced, fans can now catch the beautiful actress in the new Stephen Schwartz and Joseph Stein production, “The Baker’s Wife!”

In fact, not only did Renee Elise land a part in the York Theatre Company’s forthcoming production, she nailed the lead role of Genevieve! Directed by Gordon Greenberg, the story will take place in a small French village surrounding the life of a young woman who leaves her older, very generous baker husband for a much younger, sexier man.
