It was O. Henry who created the original "Home Alone" kid. In his short story "The Ransom of Red Chief," published in 1910, a feisty little boy so terrorizes his two bumbling kidnapers that they're willing to pay to have his family reclaim him. It's not surprising then that Serendipity Theatre Co. is making the most of the comparison in its lively production of the classic at the Coronet Theatre (playing today and Sunday).

The opening day at Trump National Doral had strong, shifting winds, rain, a storm delay, a tornado watch and a suspension of play because of darkness. As a result, there were plenty of birdies, but also plenty of bogeys, doubles and worse. Only two threesomes completed 18 holes.

A frozen field in rural America. Helpless victims in wool coats. Two escapees, on the run, with nothing to lose. It had all the makings of a sensational crime--and the media has descended accordingly on the town of Bend, Ore., beaming back images of the unrepentant scofflaws: There's Jessie, the mastermind, a middle-aged golden retriever with decidedly dopey eyes. And then there's Chase, Jessie's lackey, a clumsy, big-pawed beagle pup. Their crime: sheep chasing. Their sentence: death.
