A coalition of 20 faith-based organizations, environmental groups and labor unions has created a community development agreement that would compel builders in the Anaheim sports district to meet prevailing wage standards and construct low-cost housing and child-care facilities. The deal would be similar to one in San Diego in which homes, shops and offices were built around the Padres' new downtown baseball stadium, Petco Park.

By coincidence, last weekend saw the local opening of two shows that had premiered on Broadway in the 1970s with all-black casts. Although "Ain't Misbehavin' " is subtitled "The Fats Waller Musical Show," you'll learn precious little about the great performer-composer from it.

"Glee" is not the same old song and dance. The freshman Fox series is thus far succeeding where previous attempts by a weekly series to add music to the mix fell flat. Many popular series have gone the musical route in stand-alone episodes with mixed results. "The Alan Brady Show Presents" on "The Dick Van Dyke Show" is one of the series' most beloved. "Once More, With Feeling" from "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" has taken on cult classic status. But if you want to know when "Happy Days" really jumped the shark, check out the episode "American Musical."

Convincing a rising Broadway star to star in a small, 99-seat Los Angeles stage production can be a real casting coup. But the producers of "Slipping," now running at the Lillian Theatre in Hollywood, have learned that it can also create a major headache. Seth Numrich - already a Broadway veteran at age 26, having played the lead roles in "War Horse" in 2011 and "Golden Boy" this winter - began performances in "Slipping" on Saturday. He plays the main role of Eli, a moody high school student adjusting to life in a small, Midwestern town.

The bad news is, that's only about half as much money as the foundation handed out the last time it did this.

Notorious sourpuss W.C. Fields was once asked if he liked children. "I do," he replied, "if they're properly cooked." Only the crustiest curmudgeon would bah-humbug at the notion that kids are a wonderful element of any family or community. Yet for lower-income parents or single parents of any income level, the constant need to care for young children does create a logistical dilemma: If a parent needs to work outside the home to earn a living, what to do with the kids all day?
