Two sold-out concerts in Holland--with headliners Bobbie Eakes (Macy Forrester) and Jeff Trachta (Thorne Forrester)--provided the footage for the concert tour of their characters that aired earlier this month on "The Bold and the Beautiful." The musical extravaganza, which included the singing talents of John McCook (Eric Forrester) and Darlene Conley (Sally Spectra), took place in October in Ahoy Stadium in Rotterdam.

Charting the rise and fall of an '80s comedy trio, "3 Guys Naked From the Waist Down" is better as a performers' showcase than as a coherent musical. In Ron Palillo's revival at the Tamarind Theatre, Jeff Trachta gets the showiest role--a possibly certifiable and somewhat suicidal comic.

Jeff Trachta, who plays Thorne Forrester of "The Bold and the Beautiful," has never lamented the fact that the soap took him off contract in February, 1994. "I didn't take it as they didn't want me on the show. It was more the writers didn't know what to do with Thorne," he says, noting that after a short dry spell the writers' "creativity took over and they came up with something wonderful."

Jeff Trachta, who for five years has played fashion scion Thorne Forrester on the CBS daytime drama "The Bold and the Beautiful," is accustomed to singing in concerts for up to 30,000 fans in Europe, where the soap is a huge hit. But it took his performance in a one-man show at a 99-seat theater in West Hollywood to make the local entertainment community sit up and take notice.

Jeff Trachta ( speaking about his "The Bold and the Beautiful" co-star, Bobbie Eakes) : "We met about a year ago. I spilled a drink on her. We were married Oct. 19--we sang at our own wedding. I play Bold and she plays Beautiful." Bobbie Eakes ( to Jeff, affectionately) : "You're using all your material, honey." They sure sound married, but they're not married--not in real life, anyway. On the CBS daytime drama, Trachta and Eakes play wealthy loving couple Thorne and Macy Forrester.

Jeff Trachta and Bobbie Eakes (Thorne and Macy Forrester on "The Bold and the Beautiful") had an unexpected encounter with thousands of fans of their show recently while making a public appearance in Denmark. "Bobbie and I were giving an outdoor concert at Bakken, this 450-year-old park right in the heart of Copenhagen," says Trachta. "Neither of us knew what to expect, but we certainly didn't expect anything like we got. We were both shocked when some 40,000 people showed up.

You might go see the Los Angeles Civic Light Opera's "Cinderella" for its top-billed veteran celebrities--Steve Allen, Jayne Meadows and Rose Marie--but you can enjoy it for Rodgers and Hammerstein's lyrical score, a comic trio of supporting players and a spunky, sweet-singing Cinderella.

A 1950s period portrait of a family in crisis, "The Letter," at the Hudson, is a florid combination of modernism and melodrama that succeeds despite its shortcomings. At first glance, the family in Rodney Nugent's play appears to be the African American version of "The Donna Reed Show." Dad (Steven Williams), a successful supervisor in charge of dozens of men, tells his three sons rousing stories of their illustrious ancestor, a cowboy in the Old West.

Actors Alley gets into the holiday spirit with "Humbug," a musical adaptation of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol," opening this weekend at the company's North Hollywood theater. Jordan Charney and Arthur Hamilton adapted the work; the original score is by Hamilton, Robert Caine and Barry Fashman--and 17 actors will play the story's multiple roles. "The first vision you'll see is a screaming child," said director Robert Bowers, describing the "slightly askew" perspective on the classic tale.
