It’s been a long time since fans have seen One Life to Live’s detective John Sykes, and we can all probably agree that Llanview could use another good cop or two given all of the crimes and drama as of late at the Llanview PD. However, John Sykes portrayer, John Bolger, won’t be heading back to the show, as he’s too busy “Dirty Dancing!”

Now before you let your minds wander, no, John hasn’t taken up dancing but is currently playing in the recreation of one the most romantic movies of all time, Eleanor Bergstein’s “Dirty Dancing!” Who could forget the summer at Kellerman’s, where Baby (Jennifer Grey) and Johnny (Patrick Swayze) fell in love – and the objection from Baby’s father, Dr. Jake Houseman (Jerry Orbach). Well, get ready fans, as John slips into the fatherly shoes and does a little objecting of his own in the new ‘stage-version’ of the film as Baby’s father! Playing at the Cadillac Palace Theatre in Chicago Illinois, the play runs two and a half hours and can be seen from now through January 17! For those who are in the area, you can purchase tickets here!

Since leaving One Life to Live in 2004, John has appeared in many Primetime shows and films, as well as on General Hospital as Mayor Garrett Floyd.

Soaps.com wants to send our best to John, and we hope to see you once again in Daytime soon!
