April 2, 1989 | CHARLES MAROWITZ, Marowitz is a critic, playwright, director and founder of London's Opens Space Theater. His new play "Wild West" opened Saturday at Houston's Main St. Theatre.
In the summer of 1965, when I was a little more than a fledgling director myself, I was asked to "enlighten" a group of up-and-coming British writers buoyed up by Ford Foundation grants at a retreat in Wannsee, a suburb of Berlin best remembered as the site of the Wannsee Conference, at which Hitler's "final solution" was casually ratified.

Airless Jordan slumped in the Bulls' dressing room and addressed his flatness. "I just could not hit a basket," he said. He missed every outside jumper but one, missed a couple of layups besides. Scored only 38 points. No wonder, of course, that the Chicago Bulls failed to eliminate the New York Knicks in their best-of-seven National Basketball Assn. Eastern Conference semifinal series. Man could not score. Could not buy a bucket. "Flat," said the most famous Michael this side of a cola commercial.

Acclaim is a harsh companion for the gifted artist, especially in the vulnerable, volatile profession of acting. Do you ride the train of fame? Or do you maintain self-critical distance from the whole business--which means saying no to mediocre scripts and media queries? Do you risk becoming unemployable while maintaining your integrity? The dilemma is perhaps no better embodied today than in the accomplishments of Australian actress Judy Davis, who, after a decade of acclaim, is making her U.S.

The adage that "the show must go on" has acquired special meaning at the Orange County Performing Arts Center: Its heavily subscribed series of Broadway musicals is about to begin 4 months late.
