Having already outed myself as a soap geek (well, duh), a figure-skating geek, a trashy novel geek, and a name geek, I feel safe to add another title to the list: musical theater geek.

Yes, I love musicals. So does Michael Fairman. Which is why, when we were both working on the E! show Pure Soap in 1994 and Ron Raines - fresh off a long and distinguished career in musicals - joined the cast of Guiding Light as Alan and was still in the process of losing his theater affectations and acquiring his soap legs, we couldn't help tagging every grand Spaulding pronouncement he made with the phrase, "In Camelot!" (Trust me, it was very funny at the time. If you loved soaps. And musicals. And were easily amused.)

Try it yourselves!

Below is Ron's Alan making his grand re-entrance to Springfield society....

And in performance as Don Quixote in Man of La Mancha (also making a heck of an entrance) from right before he joined GL!
