Pelham - On August 26, Emmy award-winning actor Steve Burton and Emmy-nominated actor Bradford Anderson ("General Hospital") brought their "Stone Cold and The Jackal" show to Rockwells in Pelham, New York.
"Welcome to the Stone Cold and The Jackal Show," Anderson said, as he took the stage. He sang "That's What Friends Are For," where the audience were waving their hands up in the air. He shared that this marked their sixth time performing at Rockwells since November.
Anderson also joked that "this is his drinking game," where he drank for the Red Sox, football season, and for baseball season not being over. He also poked fun about his character, Spinelli on General Hospital, where he shared that he is "recurring," and he helps many of the other characters via phone calls. He is drawn to his character Spinelli since he is "quirky," and he is the "underdog," and somebody that people can root for. He went on to perform a song that he sang for Maxie on the show, and he treated the audience to his upbeat and fun version of "The Heat Is On" from the Beverly Hills Cop soundtrack.
Steve Burton took the stage, and his presence was met with a raucous response. "It's good to be back in America," he said, after performing in Montreal on the previous day. He also shared that he has a personality unlike his character, Jason Morgan, on the show. He acknowledged that it has been one year since he has been back on the show, where he resurfaced as Patient No. 6, with his ski mask and his cataract glasses.
Both actors praised veteran Emmy-winning actor Maurice Benard for his 25-year anniversary on the show, where he plays mob boss Sonny Corinthos, and they even noted that he did their "Stone Cold and The Jackal" podcast. They also made fun of Sonny for being "allergic to manual labor," since he makes Jason Morgan do everything for him.
Anderson made Burton feel old at one point since he noted that in 1991 (Burton's first year on the soap opera), he was in seventh grade only.
Their show included a question and answer (Q&A) session with the fans, as well as them reading mean tweets about their characters, which was hysterical. Anderson also serenaded the fans to the chorus of Pat Benatar's "We Belong" in an a cappella fashion.
This journalist asked both Anderson and Burton the following question: "If both of you were to compete at a summer Olympic event, what would it be?" Anderson shared that he would love to throw "the javelin," while Burton picked the "hammer throw."
The Verdict
Overall, Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson's Stone Cold and The Jackal show at Rockwells in Pelham was entertaining and hilarious. Both actors work well with each other, and they feed off of each other's energy. The crowd loved them in return, and they are worth seeing live when they come to town. Rockwells in Pelham provided the fans to the distinct opportunity to see both actors in a pleasant and intimate setting. With Burton and Anderson, there is always something different each time. Their show is interactive and spontaneous, and it garnered two thumbs up.
