Gov. Pete Wilson has reappointed Joseph Stein, the conservative Southland developer who as president of the state Board of Education helped prompt the investigation that led to the resignation of former state schools Supt. Bill Honig. Stein, 62, of Indian Wells, in 1991 asked the state Fair Political Practices Commission and then the attorney general to investigate Honig's role in the awarding of contracts to a nonprofit company run by Honig's wife.

On Sept. 22, 1964, at New York's swank Rainbow Room, producer Harold Prince read aloud to his opening-night guests from one of "Fiddler on the Roof's" less than inspiring reviews. "I can't resist reading this to you," he told them, "because it's so irrelevant." Nearly eight years and 3,300 performances later, "Fiddler" broke the record for longest-running musical, and Prince again pulled out those reviews.

Ever since he was indicted on state felony conflict of interest charges in March, state Supt. of Public Instruction Bill Honig has been blaming his troubles on a "right-wing conspiracy," organized by a "cabal of conservatives." Honig and his supporters said the indictment was engineered by members of the State Board of Education, a few legislators and legislative staff members, and some fundamentalist religious leaders. They believe that this "cabal" pressured Atty. Gen.

Chaim Topol was so young when he starred as Tevye in the 1971 movie version of the musical "Fiddler on the Roof" that he had to spend more than two hours in the makeup chair every day to transform himself into a middle-aged milkman. The makeup artist would even pluck gray whiskers from the beard of director Norman Jewison and glue them into Topol's eyebrows.

"Fiddler on the Roof," with Theodore Bikel as Tevye, comes to the Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts tonight. Seen on an earlier tour stop at the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood, the actor and the role were as natural a match as Tevye's daughter Tzeitel and Motel the tailor. Bikel looks like Tevye--young enough to have pubescent daughters and to shake a leg during a party, old enough to sigh and sometimes sag under the weight of his years of toil.

The program for Fullerton Civic Light Opera's "Zorba" notes that star John Raitt first performed at Plummer Auditorium as a green high-schooler tinkering with the idea of a theatrical career. From this early dabbling, the Santa Ana-born Raitt went on to find the Broadway spotlight--he's credited with creating the role of Billy Bigelow in the original 1945 production of "Carousel"--and later became a movie actor with MGM.
