Founder of the Mark Taper Forum, éminence grise of the regional theater movement, crusading champion of Los Angeles theater, Gordon Davidson was put in an unusual position last fall at USC's School of Dramatic Arts: He had to explain who he was to a group of undergraduates who had signed up for a semester-long course with him.

Don't let Eric Trules' rough-hewn face fool you. Trules has a sensitive side, as evidenced in "It's the Day After Valentine's Day," Trules' one-man show about romantic yearning and failed relationships. The play takes place over the course of one year. Early on in the action, a commitment-phobic man (Trules) finally finds the woman of his dreams. But the course of true love . . . well, you get the picture.

Eric Trules' ambitious and provocative documentary "The Poet and the Con" delves into the loving relationship between Trules, a prize-winning poet and a veritable Renaissance man in the performing arts, and his uncle, Harvey Rosenberg, an underworld enforcer and career criminal. Since both are charismatic, highly articulate and reflective men, Trules speculates on the closeness of the creative and criminal impulses.

More than 25 years after the Echo Park branch library was irreparably damaged by the Sylmar earthquake, local residents gathered this week to the mellow string bass of a jazz band and celebrated the long-awaited opening of their neighborhood library. Even before the Echo Park branch library officially opened, hundreds lined up outside the modern block-and-tile building to get new library cards. "We've been fighting for this for ages," said Vincent Rodriguez.

Hershewe's comedy, "An Oasis in Manhattan," opening Jan. 19 at the Venture Theatre in Burbank. "The 'oasis' is Youssef's household," explained Tayback, "and he runs it like a dictator. He loves the United States--he voted for Eisenhower, Nixon and Reagan--and thinks that freedom, education and democracy are a good idea.

April 14, 1995 | ROBERT KOEHLER, SPECIAL TO THE TIMES; Robert Koehler writes regularly for The Times.
There's a line about Los Angeles that goes like this: When it comes to getting together with friends, it's easier to see them in a freeway jam than agree on a date to meet. If that's true for regular Angelenos, imagine getting a bunch of Angeleno performing artists together. That was the dilemma faced by performer-producer Eric Trules, who has worked for two years to organize a festival of L.A.-based performance artists, storytellers and actors.

Kids gasp when Pat Hines smashes watermelons at their feet. Plain melons crack apart with a splat. But watermelons with a bike helmet strapped around them smack the ground without splitting open. It's a quick way for Hines and the children's safety group she calls Safe Moves to show the importance of wearing a helmet when riding a bicycle. Now, says Hines, if she could only convince those melon-headed bureaucrats how important her 12-year-old organization is to students across Los Angeles.
