David Bryan calls his wife a "theater widow" for good reason. For the past decade much of his attention has been focused on "Memphis," the Tony Award-winning musical that begins a two-week engagement at the Pantages Theatre on Tuesday. He spoke to Pop & Hiss about how he balances Broadway with his day job as keyboardist for Bon Jovi. What sparked "Memphis"? [Playwright Joe DiPietro] was looking for a composer and he wanted a real rock 'n' roll guy, and not a theater composer that was going to write a rock score.

"Jersey BOYS," the show, came off well for the La Jolla Playhouse. The rock 'n' roll bio-play about Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons opened late in 2004 and soon after moved to Broadway, where it won a Tony Award for best musical and looks to keep playing to packed houses into the next decade. Now La Jolla has the not-quite-sequel: Jersey Boys, the partnership -- Joe DiPietro and David Bryan, a writer-composer team of 46-year-olds who, on the face of it, are one of the oddest theatrical couplings since Neil Simon thought up Oscar Madison and Felix Ungar.

Former San Clemente police officer David Wayne Bryan, 33, acknowledged in a tape-recorded interview that he acted as the "aggressor" during sex with a convenience store clerk because of her "initial resistance." "She wasn't sure that (having sex) was something she was wanting to do right off the bat . . . so I had to talk her into it. . . ." Bryan told an investigator from the district attorney's office a day after the woman accused him of rape last January.

At the private New Roads School in Santa Monica, 20 families decided not to re-enroll in the fall because of financial nervousness. At Loyola High School near downtown, 40 families have come forward since the beginning of the school year seeking financial aid to help cover tuition costs, even as the school's endowment -- heavily invested in equities -- has taken a battering in the financial market.

LA JOLLA -- The story of early rock 'n' roll is a truly American tale. The music probably wouldn't have been possible if not for the proximity of people from diverse backgrounds, overhearing each other and appropriating what they liked. Yet if America in the late 1940s and early '50s was beginning to come together in music, the country, in most other ways, remained deeply divided. "Memphis" -- a musical being given an exuberant, high-gloss staging at La Jolla Playhouse -- looks back on this time and finds a message at once chilling and full of hope.

The recent movie musicals "Nine" and "Rock of Ages" both tanked at the box office, but that apparently isn't stopping producers from investing in an effort to adapt the Tony-winning "Memphis" for the big screen. "Memphis" will be turned into a movie produced by Belle Pictures, the Mark Gordon Co. and Alcon Entertainment, according to various published reports on Sunday. Joe DiPietro, who co-wrote the musical, reportedly will write the screen adaptation.  The musical features a score by Bon Jovi keyboardist David Bryan.

It's one of those slow summer evenings when viewers might be better off reading a book. Those who insist on watching the little box that glows, however, have a couple of choices, courtesy of cable. "Planet of the Apes: Rule the Planet," is a half-hour Fox special that can be seen tonight at 8. If you can't handle the hype, there's the irreverent monkey business of "The Daily Show With Jon Stewart," the clever news parody marking its fifth anniversary tonight at 11 on Comedy Central.
