We like to joke about how As the World Turns is a schizophrenic show but today it really did seem as if ATWT had at long last rounded the bend to multiple personality syndrome or, as fans of One Life to Live know it all too well, dissociative identity disorder.

On one hand, we had a series of terrific scenes between Luke (Van Hansis) & Brian (Laurence Lau). The Gay Snyder finally had a heart to heart with his step grandfather about The Kiss.

Laurence Lau (Brian Wheatley, As the World Turns) will star in the play Breaking Legs from January 9 until February 1. The play is at the Riverside Theatre in Vero Beach, Florida. Visit the Riverside Theatre website for more information.
