With JoAnne Worley heading the cast, you may expect a good deal morethan you get in the Falcon Theatre's disappointing "updating" of "Hansel and Gretel." You do get Worley, however, and that's the show's saving grace. With comic chops as robust as ever, this "Laugh-In" luminary and consummate stage pro could make reading the phone book funny, and she manages to provide a sense of fun to Lori Marshall's lackluster, expository script and director Kevin Larkin's uninspired staging.

The sale-demise of KMPC is certainly no surprise to the longtime L.A. radio listener. I can sum it up in one word: Boooo -ring (sing it out a la Joanne Worley). Only Jim Healy was a consistent high spot. Doug Krikorian had a little pizazz, but he was eventually pushed out. The political correctness of having Paola (uh uh uh) Boivin was greeted with disinterest by the average beer-guzzling sports fanatic, like myself. So long, KMPC sports talk. You won't be missed.
