During his working hours, John Sanders sports a Groucho Marx mustache that looks like it has been applied with an extra wide black marker. The actor portrays the dashing, malaprop-dropping, always-hopping villain Black Stache in "Peter and the Starcatcher," now on national tour at the Ahmanson Theatre through Jan. 12. The Tony Award-winning play presents the back story to the Peter Pan tale, but it also imagines how a foppishly dressed pirate came...

More DASH routes will be running Friday in downtown Los Angeles and Mid-City after an employee strike caused 13 routes to be suspended. Ten routes remained offline Friday, but limited service has returned to the Downtown Route A, Lincoln Heights/Chinatown and Crenshaw lines. The International Brotherhood of Teamsters, Local 572, went on strike Thursday morning over a contractual dispute with Veolia Transportation. The company operates DASH routes downtown and in certain areas of South L.A. and Hollywood under contract with the Los Angeles Department of Transportation.  LADOT cannot be involved in such a dispute between Veolia Transportation and its employees, said LADOT spokesman Clinton Quan.

CAIRO -- To many of those who took part in Egypt's 2011 revolution against Hosni Mubarak, the death of Bassem Mohsen epitomized that era's dashed hopes. Mohsen, 25, was shot in the head last week during an anti-government protest in his native city of Suez. On Sunday, he was confirmed dead. On Monday, friends and family gathered outside the hospital where the body lay, waiting for official permission for an autopsy to be carried out. The young activist was a veteran of protests against not only Mubarak, but the military administration that followed him, the Islamist rule of Mohamed Morsi, and most recently, the military-backed interim government.

Kendrys Morales defused a potentially awkward situation Friday night when he took the blame for a dash from third base that resulted in the slugger having to stop on his twice surgically repaired ankle and retreat back to the bag. Morales, who hit his first home run in almost two years in the second inning of a 4-1 exhibition victory over the Cleveland Indians at Goodyear Ballpark, singled in the fourth and advanced to third with one out. ...

Shamarko Thomas ran really fast during his first 40-yard dash at the NFL scouting combine, so fast that apparently his top half couldn't keep up with his bottom half and he face-planted. It's too bad because Thomas, a strong safety from Syracuse, finished with an unofficial time of 4.38 on that attempt. Thomas may be wiping turf off of his face, but he surely isn't blotting away any tears.  He notched an official time of 4.42, the fastest of all safeties, according to Yahoo.  Thomas, who is 5-foot-9 and 213 pounds, is the seventh-ranked strong safety on the NFL Draft Scout's board.

SAN DIEGO - A recruit who made a perilous dash across the runway at San Diego's Lindbergh Field in an apparent attempt to flee Marine boot camp is no longer in the Marine Corps, authorities said Thursday. Benjamin Yi, 22, of Colorado Springs, Colo., has been separated from recruit training and the Marine Corps, officials said. Last week, Yi was detained by airport police after being spotted dashing across the runway from the adjacent boot camp. Yi's pants were torn off when he climbed two fences, including one topped with razor wire.

WASHINGTON - With economic policymaking at home largely paralyzed by Republican opposition, the Obama administration's effort to shift its focus abroad by stimulating U.S. growth through expanded exports isn't moving much easier. The latest round of Asia-Pacific trade talks among the U.S. and 11 other countries ended Tuesday in Singapore without an agreement, dashing the administration's hopes of closing a deal this year. The lack of a deal also is a setback for what is seen as the centerpiece of Obama's strategy to exert greater influence in an economically and militarily crucial region where China has become dominant.

Today's car owners complain about few things more than the technology in their dashboards, which often doesn't work well with their tablets or phones. But automakers are resisting suggestions that a common standard for software or operating systems would  solve the myriad issues drivers face. LIVE: The latest photos, facts from LA Auto Show These days, consumers want every car model to be able to connect with every type of smartphone. Industry leaders say the way to accomplish that goal is by making their car's infotainment systems -- dashboard screens for navigation, entertainment and various controls -- embrace all smartphone platforms.

WASHINGTON - After days of rising expectations, diplomats from six world powers failed in marathon talks with Iran to seal a preliminary deal aimed at launching comprehensive negotiations on Tehran's disputed nuclear program . Foreign ministers, who had hoped for a breakthrough on one of the world's most urgent security challenges, said instead early Sunday that they had been unable in 161/2 hours of talks Saturday to resolve issues raised by...

It's the equivalent of putting a stop sign at a busy intersection after an accident, but the NHL will consider modifying its rules after it found no specific rule to support further punishing Philadelphia Flyers goaltender Ray Emery for his rink-length dash to fight an unwilling Braden Holtby last Friday. Whatever your view of fighting, the other bouts among the Flyers and Washington Capitals involved willing participants. Holtby, the Capitals' goalie, wanted no part of Emery and shook his head negatively several times before Emery unleashed a series of blows, some to the back of Holtby's head.

In the months immediately following Nicolas Maduro's election as president of Venezuela, he seemed to want to prove the naysayers wrong. I had been one of them, calling Hugo Chavez's designated heir-apparent "viscerally anti-American" in an opinion piece for this newspaper in 2012. Because of the strained relations between the two countries, neither has had an ambassador at its embassy since late 2010. But there were some encouraging signs. In June, two months after he was elected, Maduro sent his personal friend and political ally, Calixto Ortega, to Washington as the charge d'affaires (acting ambassador)

A resurrected Revolutionary War hero, a double-ax-wielding horseman (headless), ghost trees, Colonial witches, horned beasts, ancient priests, a sassy female cop and at least one Starbucks joke? Long before Tom Mison's fit and dashing Ichabod Crane got around to mentioning (oh yes, he did) the Four Horseman of the Apocalypse, I was hopelessly, hopefully hooked on "Sleepy Hollow," Fox's new literate if historically zany spook-fest of a police procedural. Too much going on in the pilot, you say?

With macho-sounding names like Tough Mudder, Warrior Dash and the Spartan Race, obstacle course races have turned mud, sweat and tears into a flood of revenue. Over the last year, obstacle races have surpassed marathons in popularity, with an estimated 1.6 million participants paying hefty fees to slosh through mud pits, crawl under barbed wire, scale 10-foot walls and plunge into troughs of ice water. Course organizers are raking in millions of dollars in the process. But race organizers and participants say the adrenaline-pumping races may have reached a crucial point, with course designers now forced to dream up new obstacles and themes or risk losing the novelty that has driven the hugely profitable sport.
