When Debbie Devine and Jay McAdams tell you that their holiday tale "The Snow Maiden" is loosely based on the story of photographer Margaret Bourke-White, you can half-believe them. "It's loosely based in some places, tightly based in others," says McAdams, who created the show with his wife, Devine, and their 15-member Glorious Repertory Players.

24th Street Theatre in L.A. is a small theater with a long reach: It has been chosen to represent the United States in El Salvador as part of the U.S. State Department's Cultural Connect Program. Named cultural envoys on behalf of the U.S. Embassy in San Salvador, the theater's artistic director Debbie Devine and local composer-musician Ed Barguiarena, joined by 24th Street's executive director Jay McAdams, will work with the Youth Symphony Orchestra of San Salvador and other groups, March 9-19.

I was thrilled to see your front-page article, "Residents Say Coliseum Area Is Blooming" (May 31), which informed readers about an area of their city, while having nothing to do with a murder or sensationalistic crime. One small correction, though. The area around USC is being refurbished so rapidly that your story envisioned a "village with a theater" someday. Well, it's already there; the 24th Street Theatre has been presenting professional theater on 24th and Hoover since the end of April.

I'm wondering why Bill Lawrence and Katrina Herbert Wood (Letters, Dec. 1) feel it is Patrick Stewart's fault that he limits his performances and charges the going rate for "A Christmas Carol"? No one is forcing them to attend. Heck, for $50 or so (the price for one ticket), they could buy several versions of Dickens' classic (including the George C. Scott version, which is one of the best) on video! In addition, why not attend one of the local, less expensive productions of "A Christmas Carol"?

The Odyssey Theatre has created a stirring odyssey for the company's first holiday show. "The Snow Maiden" is not simply an adaptation of a classic Russian folk tale. It's a saga that inventively spans decades and oceans. The script, by director Debbie Devine and Jay McAdams, follows the turbulent life of Anna Petrovich (Cheryl Crabtree), told as a flashback from an American retirement home in 1993.

Something really strange happened last Saturday at the Coffee Bean on Sunset Boulevard, usually a haven for attitude-laden industry types. Strangers were talking to each other. Angelenos were actually trading touching stories about the victims, exchanging geopolitical views and sharing an unmistakable, deep sense of sadness. The night before, at the candle vigil (also on Sunset) in West Hollywood, the street was crowded with people of all ages. Talking to each other. Hugging each other.

A decaying riverboat, docked somewhere on the Mississippi River in 1929 New Orleans, its paddle stilled by a ghostly curse, is the mysterious setting for Glorious Repertory Company's original adaptation of Oscar Wilde's short story "The Nightingale and the Rose."

"The Island," a new children's play at the Odyssey Theatre Ensemble, has no bright sets or costumes. Instead, it has the colorful Glorius Players, an engaging, talented cast of young people who overcame a slow first half Saturday to pull their audience into a wacky "message" tale of misfit islanders, greedy real estate agents and helpful dolphins.
