PEOPLE WILL TALK--In D.C., people are talking about former Reagan political director Ed Rollins and Mondale veteran, D.C. attorney John Reilly, going into business together. That sounds like a male version of the successful firm that joined the GOP's Nancy Reynolds with the Democrats' Anne Wexler. . . . Former Carter White House aide Midge Costanza will reportedly link up with Shirley MacLaine to coordinate the actress-author's spirituality seminars across the United States. . . . Local Democrats heard from at least one major Gary Hart staffer that Hart's campaign would feature "controlled appearances." That translates as two or three major events a day, rather than the usual stuffed schedule.
BRAVO, BRAVO--The Music Center presented its fifth annual Bravo Awards Monday night, honoring two teachers for their outstanding work in arts education.

High School for the Arts. Garry Marshall did the emceeing, along with Mary Ann Mobley and Gary Collins. The Bravo Awards are underwritten by the Jeffery Melamed Memorial Fund, founded by Joan and Marco Weiss.
