The lost-and-found caper of the crystal sheath -- a dress valued at $150,000 and promised to the Smithsonian Institution -- could've spelled disaster for any upstart diva. But when the Bob Mackie gown was stolen off a hotel luggage trolley a day before opening night at the Hollywood Bowl, its owner, Carol Channing, conveyed how a true star acts -- with oodles of grace and cool. No wonder the kids are embracing her, again.

Davis Gaines, star of the current production of "Phantom of the Opera" in Los Angeles, took a break from the stage Tuesday to drop in on tiny California Lutheran High School, where he was besieged by questions from admiring students about the entertainment business. Does he ever get bored and just go through the motions while performing eight shows a week for 17 months? a student asked. No, he's never bored, Gaines said. "There's always something new to find out about the character."

Gene Wilder's frank, charming memoir, "Kiss Me Like a Stranger," is refreshingly free from the two major sins of show-biz autobiographies: self-aggrandizement and score-settling. Oh, he tosses a few zingers at Carol Channing for her diva-like behavior during a summer tour of "The Millionairess," and he isn't terribly nice to his first wife.

It takes a lot to overshadow Lady Gaga, especially on a night in which she's the sole name on the “Saturday Night Live” bill. However, after her two musical performances, many people were asking, “Who are those people, and is that actually a job?” For her first performance, Gaga sang “ Do What U Want ,” accompanied by R. Kelly. The two performed a subtle and romantic pas de deux that made Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke's performance at the VMA's look like a demure square dance.

Mary Martin and Carol Channing on the same stage! Is that box office or what? Why, they almost wouldn't need a play. That's the thinking behind the "Legends!" package at the Ahmanson Theatre, and it's wishful thinking. It's not enough to put two great stars--all right, legends--together. You have to give them something to do . James Kirkwood's comedy does have a promising point of departure.
