In 1932, Lloyd Bridges used to court his sweetheart at the Monday-afternoon socials at the Masons Lodge in Westwood. Nearly 70 years later, Lloyd's son Beau sits with his son Jordan on a couch just a few feet from the courtyard where those genteel dances took place. They're talking about sex change operations. Times have changed. In the ensuing half a century, the Masons Lodge became a theater. Lloyd married Dorothy Simpson, the girl at the dance.

Wherever people are divided by generational conflict, there is a potential lesson to be learned from Shakespeare's famous star-crossed lovers--which is why "Romeo and Juliet" so easily lends itself to new settings. Nevertheless, Michael J. Arndt's decision to set the piece in strife-torn Ireland of the early 19th century is particularly inspired.

"New Suit," the latest low-budget view of Hollywood from the bottom rung, is also one of the funnier. Instead of a savage expose, writer Craig Sherman and director Francois Velle have taken a light, satirical approach to the absurd lengths to which people go to latch onto a hot property.

Crossing from one gender to another is such a dramatic journey that it's surprising there haven't been more plays on the subject. Jane Anderson's "Looking for Normal," getting its world premiere at the Geffen Playhouse, manages the task of covering one such journey with a light touch, yet without making fun of the protagonist or anyone else. It also offers a compassionate and convincing case that human ties can transcend gender.

To the many social terriers who've doggedly pursued good works while having good fun, we offer a hearty wassail (the toast, not the punch): Dyan Cannon and Mellon First Business Bank, who received a Spirit of Hope Award at the H.E.L.P. Group's annual Teddy Bear Ball at the Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel. Luke Perry, as Santa Claus, auctioned off a puppy. They raised $250,000 for services to more than 3,500 needy people. . . .

Get set for the clash of the gallant women Sunday night: imprisoned Army nurses vs. an obsessive Nazi hunter. Admiration drips like sap from the two TV movies airing opposite one another at 9 p.m.--CBS' "Women of Valor" (Channels 2 and 8), and ABC's "Nazi Hunter: The Beate Klarsfeld Story" (Channels 7, 3, 10 and 42). And to varying degrees, it gums up the works, preventing the films from reaching their full dramatic potential. "Women of Valor" is an unabashed testimonial to the courage of the U.
