So he plans to cut costs by presenting, instead of producing, two upcoming shows. One of them, "The Rat Pack," has a cast on Actors' Equity contracts.

Soon to be an episode on "Ally McBeal": In the USC law alumni magazine, contributor Mike Young mentioned a classmate's article in a legal publication that criticized an appellate lawyer. Added Young: "Don't worry, Mr. Appellate Lawyer, I'm sure none of the justices, or their clerks, or their spouses, or their mothers, or their friends, or their former law partners read the article; and even if they did, 'ignoramus' is not really that strong of a word."

That was great for the young actor Ives, who "always envied" musical performers but was never one of them. But nowadays, "that situation has completely reversed," he said last week. "Musical theater is the commercial theater of today."
