Actor Peter Coyote was recalling the Wednesday evening performance of Neil Simon's "Jake's Women" at the Old Globe Theatre in San Diego. "When Stockard (Channing) and I came offstage at intermission, we threw our arms around each other with delight because the first act was so fresh and truthfully acted and we found so much wonderful new stuff in it. "Then we heard at the intermission that Neil had stormed out telling a friend of ours that it was the worst show ever." Simon was more than upset.

Neil Simon is pleased that he opted to bring his 1992 Broadway hit "Jake's Women" to television rather than to the big screen. "Infinitely more people will see it on TV than saw it on the stage--I think more even than [if it was] in movie houses," he says of the comedy-drama that airs Sunday night on CBS. But when executive producer Robert Halmi Sr.

Peter Coyote is lying on his living room sofa recounting a dream he just had. It is three weeks after Neil Simon's new show, "Jake's Women," opened at the Old Globe Theatre to terrible reviews. Coyote, who plays Jake, swears the dream really happened. "The scene is some kind of game show. There's a big screen in the background and an announcer is telling three befuddled contestants, 'You've all heard about the recent debacle of Neil Simon's new show. Now for $25,000, who is to blame?'

Highly successful playwright of late middle age--two grown daughters, a grandson, three marriages behind him, and a distaste for the rituals of casual dating--marries for the fourth time. Sounds like the making of another Neil Simon play--"Chapter Three" perhaps? In February, 62-year-old Neil Simon and Diane Lander, 38, each wearing new wedding rings, remarried at his home in Bel-Air, then threw a big bash at the Bistro. "I only count it as three, I don't count it as four," he says easily.

The Old Globe Theatre will premiere Neil Simon's latest comedy, "Jake's Women," on Thursday. The inevitable questions follow: Is Simon's story about a man and the women in his life--dead wife, current wife, girlfriend, sister, daughter, therapist--semi-autobiographical? Probably. Simon, whose best work is often semi-autobiographical, seems permanently surrounded by a constellation of women. Is the show going to Broadway after its debut here? Are you kidding?
