Not long ago, I woke up in the middle of the night to the sound of a familiar voice. Having fallen asleep with the television on, I was surprised, and a little disoriented, to hear the voice of Renee Elise Goldsberry (Ex- Evangeline Williamson). It’s a voice I haven’t heard on television since Van left the show. Waking up, I realized that I was watching a short film (a musical) titled “Jump the Broom”. A teaser of the film is posted below:
The film is written and directed by Kena Tangi Dorsey, who makes grand use of Ms. Goldsberry enormous voice and incredibly emotionally expressive face. Dorsey knows that it’s not necessary to give Goldsberry endless dialogue for her to get the point across. Her eyes tell the tale. If only OLTL could convince her to come back. The show could use a Williamson sisters takeover. It’s currently as dull as dishwater.
As for the film, it is well worth your time if you’re able to catch it. You can find out if it airs on one of your local/cable stations by clicking HERE (REG’s facebook page). You can catch up on all things ‘REG’ there.
