From Genoa City to Kalamazoo: Robert Newman Returns to the Stage After Y&R

Actor Robert Newman is no stranger to daytime drama, after spending 28 years on Guiding Light and short stints on General Hospital and Santa Barbara. You have also seen him in guest starring roles on television and in movies. Theatre-goers also know Robert well from his frequent appearances all around the country.

In Robert's new visit to TRPS, he speaks candidly about his six-month return to daytime as Ashland Locke on The Young and the Restless – and what he really would love to do next in his career. He visited with TRPS while in rehearsals at The Barn Theatre in Augusta, Michigan (near Kalamazoo and Battle Creek) for a production of Rock of Ages.

Watch for Robert in the feature-length film Raunch and Roll (partially filmed in Kalamazoo, starring his Barn Theatre co-star Penelope Alex) and the Apple TV+ anthology series Extrapolations.
