"Dinner and Drinks" at the Tiffany is all glamour. There's a glamorous set (especially well conceived by designer Renee M. Hoss); glamorous costumes (the women's anyway, designed by Marjorie Bowers, courtesy of PETALS); glamorous women (Pamela Susan Shoop, Barbra Rae); sharp lightning and sound design (Steven D. Cuden and Jon Gottlieb, respectively) and spiffy black-and-white furniture (by Milton Jurado) to match the black-and-white costumes. But where's the play?

The best moment in "The Melody Sisters" at the Hahn Cosmopolitan is the last moment. That's partly because the Melody Sisters finally stop whining and carping at that point and sing--melodiously. It's also because the number signifies the blessed end of a show that grows painfully longer as the evening goes on. There is a nagging sense that this Gaslamp Quarter Theatre show could be better than it is. Maybe if director James A. Strait stepped up the pace.

Between 1946 and 1961, 76 million baby boomers were born. Most of them would get a double kick out of "The Wonder Years," subtitled "A Baby Boom Musical Revue," at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel Academy Room. That is, not only would they enjoy themselves, they'd also be on the receiving end of a kick in the pants. "The Wonder Years" has moments of sheer, exuberant nostalgia. But it goes beyond them into a realm of clever social criticism that lets no one escape unscathed.

"Somebody had made me their calling card, and death was written all over it." Welcome to "The Chesterfield Woman," a Chandler-esque '40s murder mystery so stylish that you forgive its lack of narrative fire. Playwright Jeffrey Bloom and director Frederick King Keller salute gumshoe Philip Marlowe and film noir with a flare that is delectable.

Twice promised and twice postponed, Alan Ayckbourn's comedy "Henceforward . . . ," set in an unsavory future that feels like it's just around the corner, finally made it to town--not at the Doolittle Theatre, which was its original destination, but at the Mark Taper Forum. This is more significant than one might think. A good deal of the "sometime quite soon" in which "Henceforward . . ." happens is also defined by the some where .

In a surprise move Tuesday, Theatre LA bestowed its annual lifetime achievement award on South Coast Repertory founders Martin Benson and David Emmes, who have never joined the organization and whose productions are therefore ineligible for the group's Ovation Awards. In fact, Theatre LA's roster of more than 130 member theaters and producers doesn't include one from Orange County, said Theatre LA executive director William Freimuth.
