'I think people limit themselves a lot by aspiring to only one thing," says director Jan Eliasberg. "I wanted to direct theater and that was all. And I became hollower and hollower because I didn't read and I didn't think and I didn't talk to people in other professions. Now," she says, smiling, "I feel like the doors are opening again."

Re "A Decision That Imperils All Human Life," Commentary, March 22: As a physician, neurologist and psychiatrist I wish to applaud Cardinal Roger Mahony's opinion criticizing the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals on assisted suicide. I am in the trenches with my patients and not the lofty ivory tower of the judicial bench.

No American theater serves the almost-there playwright better than South Coast Repertory. Take Jan Eliasberg's staging of Craig Lucas' "Reckless." This isn't just a matter of putting a new script on its feet. Eliasberg really makes it fly--until the play itself develops engine trouble. This is an earlier script than Lucas' "Blue Window," which has had a nice little success on the East Coast this winter. It's a morality play in the form of a fantasy, not unlike David Mamet's "Edmond."

It takes some luck to make it as a studio chief. With "Big," Leonard Goldberg got unusually lucky. Shortly after taking charge of 20th Century Fox Film Corp. some 22 months ago, the ex-network executive learned that Robert De Niro ("Taxi Driver," "Mean Streets") was in line to play "Big's" Josh Baskin, a 13-year-old boy who wakes up one morning transformed into an adult. Ferociously middle-brow, Goldberg hated the oddball casting. But director Penny Marshall loved it, and producer James L.

FALL/CHRISTMAS By the time September rolls around, "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II" and whatever else has gone through the roof in the first half of the year will be all but forgotten. Now, we will all agree, the fun begins; the "serious films" will open, followed by the Holiday Box Office Derby, then the onset of Awards Season. But as this past fall and Christmas showed, the lineups for these seasons tend to look better on paper than they do in theaters. The two seasons are distinct from one another, by subject matter as much as dates.
