"They say the neon lights are bright on Broadway; They say there's always magic in the air. . ." --The Drifters Three thousand miles from Broadway, the neon lights were blazing in full glory on Melrose Avenue. It was a Saturday night. The usual crowd of playhouse enthusiasts was gathering outside the tiny Zephyr Theatre. First in line, as always, were Richard and Susan Johnson, who became engaged last year right in the middle of an act.

One fact about Actor's Equity and Equity Waiver Theater in Los Angeles that wasn't mentioned by Dan Sullivan in "Big Change for Small Theater" (Sept. 4) is very revealing: When a Waiver show was a hit and the producers were moving it to a larger theater, Equity required the producers to hold open Equity calls for all roles, whether they were played by Equity members or nonmembers. If Equity is concerned about its members working for free in Waiver theater, why require small-theater producers moving a show up to look at other Equity actors for the roles that were developed by Equity members working in Waiver?

A controversy over the proposed restructuring of Equity Waiver Theater in Los Angeles will come to a head over the weekend in balloting by 8,000 local Equity members. The dispute focuses on Actors' Equity Assn.'s 16-year-old Waiver Plan, under which the union waives certain rules, but not its jurisdiction, in theaters with fewer than 100 seats and where actors rarely get paid, but where their work can be showcased.

It's bad enough that playwright Hamish Partt must take time from rehearsals and rewrites to lunch with pompous twits at a trendy L.A. eatery. What's worse, what's almost unbearable, is that he can't even get his waiter to find the right kind of Scotch to help him through the long afternoon's blather. "Look," Partt says in a barely contained frenzy of polite frustration, "I'll just have an ordinary Scotch whiskey, please. Large, with two lumps of ice. An ordinary whiskey! Eh?"
