How do you follow up the 52nd anniversary episode of General Hospital? By going live, of course! In exciting news, the ABC episode is going old school when it airs two live episodes on May 15th and May 18th. This harkens back not only to the days when soaps were live, but when One Life to Live had their live week several years ago, when anything can happen!
Executive producer Frank Valentini revealed to PEOPLE: “Taking such an iconic show as General Hospital live for two days is both exhilarating and risky. I am enormously proud of our cast, crew and staff for all their tireless dedication and hard work that will be leading up to this daytime television event. It’s live television and absolutely anything can happen, but that is what’s fun about this and we’re absolutely up to the challenge.”
Soaps in the old days were all live, until 1975 when every daytime drama began to tape the episodes and bank them ahead. During the live GH episodes fan will be encouraged to join in on the GH live conversation by using #GHlive on Twitter.
