Judith CHAPMAN did something few actors have the courage to do -- leave Hollywood for 14 years. Then she did something even more unexpected: She came back. Chapman reportedly beat out a bevy of soap opera actresses for the juicy role of Gloria Fisher Abbott, a gold digger who marries a cosmetics tycoon on television's most-watched daytime drama, "The Young and the Restless." Chapman took over the role in January after Joan Van Ark left the series as the brassy Gloria.

Austin Pendleton's "Orson's Shadow," at the Old Globe Theatre's Cassius Carter Centre Stage, offers some entertaining facsimiles of Orson Welles, Laurence Olivier, Vivien Leigh, Joan Plowright and Kenneth Tynan. On the level of an animated wax museum, the production is fun, but the script is negligible. Pendleton concocted the idea that critic Tynan organized a 1960 production of Eugene Ionesco's "Rhinoceros," starring Olivier and Plowright, directed by Welles.

Johnny Ace, the first rock 'n' roll star for whom teen-age girls put up little altars in their bedrooms, carried the promise for other black musicians trying for a pinnacle of stardom unknown even to jazz giants. The promise lived on, past his death by Russian roulette in 1954, and haunts the characters in Martin Jones' richly evocative "West Memphis Mojo" at the International City Theatre. Johnny's been dead a year when the action begins in Teddy's Barber Shop and Records.

Mother is off in Palm Desert recuperating from a face lift, Grandma's on a cruise with her third husband, HMOs limit the time doctors spend talking with patients and the literature of childbirth is rife with propaganda? There should be someone a woman can hire, a wise, nurturing mother surrogate experienced in guiding a typically terrified woman through pregnancy and delivery. There is.
