Soap Fans Rally To Make Impact at ABC UpFront Meeting
Braving the elements, a crowd gathered across from Avery Hall at Lincoln Center today to protest the cancellation of their beloved soaps. Carrying posters and bullhorns, they were joined by Disney Union workers and soap stars Ilene Kirsten and Colleen Zenk, who took the red-eye from LA just to attend. The NYPD stood by to make sure everyone behaved (which of course they did!!) and gamely posed for photos.
We Love Soaps" and "Soap Opera Network" showed up. Soapgeist Mimi Torchin gave interviews. The singer Allura was there to sing an original song as well!
I just want to say that I am so proud of all those people that attended, really wished I could be there and give you all kudos. We HAVE HEART people!!
Special thanks to Xanderdash for all his photos!!
