Weekly Alumni Feature #4 Ron Raines

In honor of Ron Raines' return to Broadway in Follies I have chosen him as this week's Guiding Light Alumni Feature. Ron took over the role of Alan Spaulding the summer of 1994, replacing the very popular Chris Bernau. Guiding Light was Ron's first television role. Prior to his GL debut Ron played many of American Musical Theater's leading men across the country including Don Quixote, Emile De Becque and Benjamin Stone. During his work on GL Ron played Billy Flynn in the Broadway production of Chicago!

Yesterday, Ron returned to Broadway in the Stephen Sondheim production Follies at the Marquis Theater.
Visit Ron Raines Online for more information on Ron's career and on how to buy your tickets to Follies.
