It's a long way from playing Zorro's arch nemesis on television to playing Rome's would-be savior on stage. But John Hertzler, who has the role of Brutus in Shakespeare Orange County's current production of "Julius Caesar," appears to have made the leap without missing a beat. That may not be surprising, though. The tall, blond, bearded actor possesses the handsome, strapping, faintly ominous look of someone who can play heavies or heroes with equal conviction.

The court-martial drama, "Breaker Morant," was an Australian play before it was a movie, and the stage version is making an auspicious L.A. debut at the Los Angeles Art Theatre. Actually, the play was seen locally last winter--CalRep in Long Beach had the U.S. premiere. That was a strong show, and this production is equally arresting and for essentially the same reasons: The texture is lean and hard and the action is vocally punctuated like riffs from a snare drum.

If you're going to sin, sin big. If you're going to risk, ditto. It's all one in theend and the ride can be so much more exciting. A Noise Within's fondness for transgression is largely confined to the plays it chooses to do--the Classics, with a capital C--but its taste for risk is another matter. This Glendale-based company is launching into an ambitious third repertory season with its usual minimal sets and good costumes, and a vigorous attack on sin.

"Misalliance" is not one of George Bernard Shaw's stronger plays and that, coupled with the cramped matchbox stage at Theatre Igloo, make the production by The Company a scintillating surprise. This is Shaw's boisterous takeoff on parents and children, in which neither is seen as worthy of the other.

Actors Conservatory Ensemble, the legacy of the late acting coaches Peggy Feury and Bill Traylor, has mounted four one-acts at the Lex under the umbrella title of "The Wife, the Sister, the Parrot and the Pitch." They are two- and three-character pieces that proceed from the strident to the delicate.
