There was an expectant hush in the audience when Nastassja (that's how she's spelling it these days) Kinski, happily due early this summer, thanks to some unnamed father-to-be, sat rapt, in roomy overalls, through the opening of Broadway's newest smash, Tom Stoppard's The Real Thing. A night earlier five soap-opera actresses, all pregnant in real life and three of whom play pregnant characters, had been to see Baby, a musical all about having one. The Maternity Line, from left: All My Children's Julia Barr (ABC has yet to say whether her character, Brooke will be in a family way), Another World's Terry David, Guiding Light's Lisa Brown, As the World Turns' Colleen Zenk (her character, Barbara, is not enceinte on the show, so Zenk's appearances of late have been confined to head shots), and AW's Laura Malone.
