You have helped me understand why I did not rush out and order tickets for "Les Miz"--or is it "Les Mess" ("There's No Biz Like 'Les Miz' Biz," by Barbara Isenberg, May 29)?
There must be another name for these prepackaged carcinogens of the theater.
Want to see live theater? Try "The Magic Prison" at Theatre West . . . "Three Top Hats" at the Odyssey. "Once Upon a Mattress" at Van Nuys High School was awfully good too. These theater pieces soar, spin, dive and sometimes crash, but, unlike "Les Miz," they are never on automatic pilot.
