Amazing! With more than 115 Equity Waiver theaters in greater Los Angeles, almost none of those represented in Barbara Isenberg's two articles went beyond the same old tried and true boundaries of the Westside. How did Isenberg subject herself to interview Barbara Beckley, general manager of the Colony Studio Theater? Wasn't she afraid she might fall off the face of the earth venturing into (God forbid!) Silver Lake ?! I (and many fellow theater lovers here on "the wrong side of the tracks")

'Move to mid-size" is the mantra for many of L.A.'s sub-100-seat theaters. On the immediate horizon, East West Players is scheduled to make the big move with the March 12 opening of "Pacific Overtures" in a new mid-size theater. The next wave of upward mobility is likeliest to occur in the east San Fernando Valley, where Actors Alley and the Colony Studio Theatre hope to make their moves, perhaps by the end of 1998.

Madelyn Cates, 68, Broadway and television actress perhaps best remembered as the concierge in Mel Brooks' film "The Producers." The New York native studied at Queens College, the Waldorf School, New York Law School and with Paula Strasberg at the Actors Studio. She made her stage debut as Adelaide in "Guys and Dolls" in Winter Park, Fla., in 1956 and her Broadway debut a decade later as the patient in "Marat/Sade."

Hoping to complete funding for a new performing arts theater, city officials here are seeking a donor to give his or her name--and $500,000--to the project. "When you look at all the arts facilities in L.A. that are named after folks--most of which came with much bigger price tags--plus the fact that we're in the media capital of the world, . . . we really think that this will happen," said Mary Alvord, director of Parks and Recreation for Burbank.

Plans for a live theater district in the heart of downtown Glendale inched forward this week with the release of a planning study concluding that the city will benefit not only culturally, but economically if it gives the arts a chance. AMS Planning and Research of Petaluma interviewed local businesses and theater-goers and recommended that the district be established on Brand Boulevard, where the Alex Theatre, Glendale Centre Theatre and A Noise Within are already located.

No year-end wrap-up can ignore the impact of Del Shores' "Daddy's Dyin' (Who's Got the Will?)." It's the Equity-Waiver success story of the year. "Daddy's Dyin' . . ." is almost a commercial affront to Waiver--the show makes money. The actors have been sharing in the profits every week since the current comedy premiered at Theatre/Theater 10 months ago. Critically, it's also among the 11 superlative productions--of 95--that I reviewed in 1987.

My New Year's wish for L.A. theater is that producers stop talking about the merits of non-traditional casting and do it. I saw only one instance of a starring role cast colorblind in 1988 (a black actress, Gloria Rusch, playing the Theban wife Alkmena in "Amphitryon 38" at the Group Rep). Otherwise, it wasn't a timid year. There was plenty of risk-taking.

If Shakespearean dialogue sometimes sounds like a foreign language to native English speakers, then how are students in ESL (English as a Second Language) programs supposed to decipher all that Elizabethan English? Some of them will have the opportunity to do so this summer at Shakespeare Festival/LA's production of "Romeo and Juliet."

Anybody who saw last season's crackling TV version of Hugh Whitemore's play "Pack of Lies" knows whodunit. Teri Garr played Helen, the suspected Russian spy; Ellen Burstyn was best friend/neighbor Barbara, who reluctantly allowed her house to be used to monitor--and ultimately facilitate the arrest of--Helen and her husband, Peter. Yet knowing up front that Peter and Helen are indeed guilty doesn't spoil the story. Or so Charles Arthur would tell you.
