Who needs live musicals like Peter Pan when you've got the good people of Port Charles instead?

On May 15 and 18, General Hospital will go old-school by airing live from Los Angeles, PEOPLE has learned. The stunt is a continuation of the soap's anniversary celebration this season: on April 1, TV's longest-running daytime drama turned 52.

"Taking such an iconic show as General Hospital live for two days is both exhilarating and risky," said executive producer and head writer Frank Valentini. "I am enormously proud of our cast, crew and staff for all their tireless dedication and hard work that will be leading up to this daytime television event. It's live television and absolutely anything can happen, but that is what's fun about this, and we're absolutely up to the challenge."

Ever since General Hospital stars Kirsten Storms and Brandon Barash told PEOPLE they were expecting their first child together – a girl! – and that they'd secretly gotten married in June, they've been overwhelmed with the positive well wishes from fans.

Now, the couple has decided to share the story of their clandestine nuptials, as well as a photo from their magical day. Barash, a gifted raconteur, tells the story in his own words of how the couple assumed new monikers – Mom and Dad, and Husband and Wife – in the span of a week:


We had just left our first baby doctor's appointment, and were riding high. Even though our baby was more in the shape of a pancake with a heartbeat, we were quite jolly. My dad was playing in the World Series of Poker at the time, a lifelong dream, so he and my stepmom were in Vegas for the weekend.
