Confession: Roo was a huge Days of Our Lives fan back in the days of Bo and Hope. And those days were plenty. Peter Reckell played the hunky bad boy on and off for nearly 30 years. But what most people don’t know is that he’s got legit theatre chops, having trained at the Boston Conservatory before moving to New York City in the early 80s.
The Emmy Award-nominated actor returns to his theater roots for a limited engagement and will be appearing in the long running Off-Broadway hit, The Fantasticks, from September 5-25. Roo caught up with Reckell while he was enjoying a bit of summer vacation with his family on Lake Michigan before taking to the stage.
