Former world champion driver Ayrton Senna will be able to race on the Formula One circuit this year after being granted a license today by the International Auto Sports Federation. The Brazilian was one of two McLaren-Honda drivers among 35 competitors named on a revised federation list as having been granted the special license required for the circuit. The original list did not include Senna's name.

Justin Tanner, master of hypocritical invective, dukes it out with Justin Tanner, heart-of-gold sentimentalist, in "Big Bear." A fair fight? Fairly diverting, certainly. The comedy, about a group of backstabbing title insurance-company execs roughing it within spitting distance of a Range Rover, would likely be better off either pulling back or going further. Tanner's script revises the earlier "Tent Show," and it is getting a very sharp production at Third Stage in Burbank.

The purpose of evil, offers one of the characters in Eric Overmyer's "On the Verge, or the Geography of Yearning," is "to thicken the plot." The line reflects Overmyer's clever but superficial style. It also points to the problem with the play, which has no sense of evil, or even danger. As a result the plot just isn't thick enough. A fantasy about three late-19th-Century ladies who time-travel into 1955 Las Vegas, Overmyer's play--at least as staged by Michael David Wadler at the Colony--is completely benign and frivolous.

While the balance of power may have shifted in the Citrus Belt League, the Fontana-Rialto Eisenhower rivalry remains one of the strongest in Southern Section football. It was proven again Friday night. With new power A.B. Miller playing both teams the next two weeks, Eisenhower used a long touchdown pass and two-fourth quarter field goals by Jonathan Palmer to defeat Fontana, 24-20, at Eisenhower.

Jonathan Palmer redeemed himself for missing a point-after attempt that would have tied the score by kicking a 36-yard field goal with 18 seconds remaining in the game to give Rialto Eisenhower a 23-21 victory over San Clemente in first round of the Southern Section Division I playoffs Friday night at Eisenhower. Eisenhower trailed, 21-20, with 2 minutes 29 seconds left after Derrick Sheppard scored his second touchdown of the game on a 13-yard run.

With its testosterone-fueled games of one-upmanship in a sleazy Chicago-area real estate office, "Glengarry Glen Ross" is a perfectly crafted articulation of David Mamet's signature themes of power and domination. In a rare L.A. staging, the play that inspired the better-known film remains a darkly comic masterpiece, though uneven casting blunts its impact in spots. Nevertheless, Stan Roth's staging gets much of it right.

Erich Zakowski, owner and technical head of West Germany's only Formula One race car, the "Zakspeed," said his only goal was to qualify for the today's Portuguese Grand Prix. "We will set ourselves up somewhere in the back rows, since 1985 is primarily a year of testing under competitive conditions," Zakowski said. That's just what happened Saturday as the Zakspeed, officially designated the Zak 84-101, qualified 23rd at 1:28.11 .

Robert Hilburn needs to learn an important distinction about popular music: Some performers are artists, some are entertainers and a select few are both. In his reviews of two recent concerts, he took the Mavericks ("A Little Bit Country, a Little Bit Oldies Revue," June 3) and Joan Osborne ("The Comfort Zone: Joan Osborne Echoes the Greats but Doesn't Make Her Own Statement," June 8), two decidedly retro acts, to task for not being groundbreaking enough. This is akin to wondering why Wynton Marsalis doesn't do a rap record.
