MORNING REPORT

Exit Lines

June 30, 1989|ALEENE MacMINN | Arts and entertainment reports from The Times, national and international news services and the nation's press

Entertainer Lola Falana, who quit the stage two years ago because of multiple sclerosis, will play a weekend date at the Sands Hotel in Las Vegas starting tonight. She's going back to work, she says, because "I'm not into being a chicken." Falana, 42, was partially paralyzed when struck by the debilitating disease in 1987. When she was offered the Las Vegas date, she told herself: "It's now or never. . . . You'd be surprised how high you can rise above these things if you set your heart and your mind to it. You have to move ahead, and make things happen."
