Alfred de Liagre Jr., the courtly yet unpretentious Broadway producer of such hit shows as "Deathtrap," "The Voice of the Turtle," "J.B." and the 1983 revival of "On Your Toes" and recently chosen by drama critics throughout the country to the Theater Hall of Fame, died Thursday of lung cancer. He was 82. De Liagre, known as "Delly" on Broad way, had been a producer for more than 60 years, said spokesman Jeffrey Richards, who represented "On Your Toes" during its New York run four years ago.

The amount of male frontal nudity in "Sliver" is shrinking, apparently. Sex scenes with Sharon Stone and William Baldwin were to have gone where no Hollywood film had gone before. The scuttlebutt was that one scene in which the actors writhe in front of a picture window would be more graphic than anything in "Basic Instinct." Exploration of a man's--not a woman's--sexuality was to get more screen treatment.

"Deathtrap," a comedy thriller that works much better on stage than it did as a movie, is enjoy ing a spirited revival at Actors Alley Repertory Theatre in North Hollywood. The central character is a once-famous playwright (John B. Donovan) who hasn't struck it big in 18 years. Reduced to teaching a seminar in the plotting of thrillers, he would kill for another hit.

It's been 30 years since we last saw Rosemary gently rocking the black-creped bassinet that held her horned, tailed, clawed, yellow-eyed offspring. Not content to let readers come to their own conclusions as to what happened next, Ira Levin chose to desecrate the memory of his most accomplished work with "Son of Rosemary: The Sequel to 'Rosemary's Baby,' " a hackneyed, jaw-droppingly banal sequel that defines the word "unnecessary." The devil must have made him do it.
