Manny Toledo, boys' soccer coach at El Dorado, focused on the Golden Hawks' progress rather than their loss to Gahr in a championship semifinal of the Brea-Olinda Tournament Saturday night. "I was just happy to be in the final four in the tournament," said the first-year coach. "We have a very young team with seven underclassmen and the team played well--way ahead of where it should be." Indeed, El Dorado (6-1-2) stayed close, forcing Gahr into overtime, before losing, 3-2, in a shootout.

Ben Donenberg, founder and artistic director of Shakespeare Festival / LA, took the stage on Saturday night to tell the audience of the festival's good works, among them taking Shakespeare to the schools and canned goods to the poor. The festival's good works, however, did not extend to putting on a credible play. Its "Othello" at the Japanese Gardens in Westwood starts out wobbly and then spirals out of control, a sort of "Noises Off" of outdoor Shakespeare.

"Malcolm." "Reverend." Contemporary dramatists are inevitably intrigued by the "what ifs" of history, ranging from a merging of Che Guevara and Evita Peron in "Evita" to a fictional conversation between Malcolm X and the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. that forms the basis for Jeff Stetson's play, "The Meeting." The "American Playhouse" production of the latter airs at 9 tonight on Channels 28 and 15. Although essentially a replay of civil rights rhetoric from the 1960s, "The Meeting" is a fascinating exercise in speculative theater, featuring stellar performances by Dick Anthony Williams as Malcolm X and Jason Bernard as King in a contained environment perfect for TV. This is that fine actor Williams' third turn as Malcolm X, the first coming in the miniseries "King," the second in the Off-Broadway production of "The Meeting."

A black cop loses his cool and shoots a handcuffed white suspect for taunting him about his race. There are no witnesses; the cop can probably get away with it. Does he turn himself in or does he cover himself? Dennis McIntyre's "Split Second" at the New Mayfair Theatre ought to involve us from the moment that Denzel Washington, as the off-duty cop, gets the drop on Michael Daniel Russo as the insolent car thief. First, we should feel the physical tension of what's about to happen.

Black leather jackets with fringe. Snakeskin chaps. Everybody in Hollywood rides a Harley-Davidson these days. "For years, if you rode a Harley, you were a murderer," said Robert Symms. "Now, it's the cool thing." Symms has been riding a Harley for two decades. He has a leather shop in Van Nuys that is supposed to be for "real" bikers like himself--guys with grease under their fingernails.
