Looking like the bride of Frankenstein as imagined by a French confectionery, Karesa McElheny delights as a propriety-bound, malaprop-spouting guardian of a rebellious young woman in the Knightsbridge Theatre's production of "The Rivals," Richard Brinsley Sheridan's 18th century comedy about upper-class manners and the deceitful travails of courtship. In the fashionable resort town of Bath in 1775, Mrs.

Perhaps it's a reflection of the increasingly narrow spectrum in our social and ideological dialogues, but controversy in the theater these days seems to have drawn an all too comfortable perimeter around the topic of sexual orientation. It's no surprise, therefore, that the Knightsbridge Theatre--the prolific company known primarily for its abundant revivals of familiar classics--chose the gay-themed British play "My Night With Reg" for its current walk on the wild side.

The Taft High boys' cross-country team has learned to differentiate between low-key running and high-intensity racing. Take, for instance, the Toreadors' 15-44 dual-meet win over West Valley League rival El Camino Real on Thursday. Brian Godsey, Mike Krentzin, Kipp Ortenburger and Torino Carr ran in a tight pack at Pierce College, then fell into their "honor system" at the finish.

"Queen of Angels: A tragical comedy or comical tragedy, full of intrigue and plenty of dancing. Angry Scenes! Deceptions! Songs! and Arousals of Love! Demons that fly across the stage with a chorus of naked queers!" That's the full title of James Carroll Pickett's new play, with music by Jon Cohen, at Highways. It certainly delivers all the excesses that its subtitle promises.

Maria Irene Fornes' elusive "Fefu and Her Friends" is many things, but soap opera is not one of them. Yet even the most eager ear for Rhonda Gelfand's staging at the Los Angeles Theatre Collective can't ignore a certain hothouse quality that has you looking around for the TV cameras. Actually, our eyes provide the camera angles--more so than in most plays.

An 18th century novel doesn't seem like an obvious inspiration for a documentary about a chimpanzee in a modern scientific experiment, but that's part of what influenced James Marsh when he made "Project Nim. " Like Henry Fielding's sprawling epic, "Tom Jones," Marsh says, his film about a charismatic primate who learns to use sign language "holds up a mirror" to the world around his protagonist. That mirror is not always flattering to the well-heeled bohemians, student idealists and researchers who came into Nim Chimpsky's orbit starting in the 1970s.

It took paranoid visionary Philip K. Dick to do what Stanley Kubrick could not: Get Steven Spielberg to fully cross over to the dark side. The question now is, how happy are we to have him there? Spielberg's "Minority Report" is amplified from a Dick short story by writers Scott Frank and Jon Cohen, and it stars Tom Cruise as a man hunted by the futuristic anti-crime unit he once led.
