In Lloyd J. Schwartz and Michael Paul's musical comedy, "Jubilee," at the American Renegade Theatre, the title stands for a horse race and the name of a dessert rather than any type of celebration, for this addition to musical theater gives little reason to celebrate.

In the run-up to this weekend's summit of the world's leading industrialized nations in Okinawa, a ragtag band of students, nuns and charity workers straggles past Japan's Ministry of Finance waving banners and flowers.

Prisoner Manuel Gonzalez Palma believes he's a religious man, but he said he didn't plan to go to Mass Sunday morning until he heard God calling his name. The voice brought him to the yard at Santa Ana Jail, a gray cinder-block room where he and about 50 federal inmates heard a special Mass for prisoners. And when he did arrive, Palma felt compelled to take the microphone and lead his fellow prisoners in spontaneous song.
