Jeff Takacs was staying at his parents' house in La Habra, delivering pizzas by night and spending days at an old Royal electric typewriter, trying to capture on paper what it would be like if everything changed for his generation in an instant. What if young people who had grown up in the best of times were suddenly thrust into the worst of times? Would they meet the challenge?

In an otherwise stirring and effective chronicle about Niccolo Machiavelli, Robert Cohen has inserted one false moment in "The Prince." Near the climax in Act 2, Scott Collins' sound design erupts with Germanic orchestration, airplanes zooming overhead, rumbling explosions of modern weapons--the obvious point being that those seeking power (specifically Adolf Hitler)--practice Machiavelli's methods. It's a conceit and detracts from the play.

A judge declared a mistrial Monday in the sanity case of Mark Richard Hilbun after jurors tried unsuccessfully for 17 days to determine if Hilbun was insane when he went on a deadly rampage in 1993, opening fire at a Dana Point post office and then terrorizing the community for two days. Jurors, clearly exhausted as they grimly announced the deadlock, said they agreed that the 42-year-old former postal worker had mental problems.
