THE come-hither chords of the Rolling Stones' "Can't You Hear Me Knockin' " slash through the darkened Geffen just before Justina Machado makes her entrance in Neil LaBute's "Some Girl(s)," the twisted romance about a man seeking out his wronged ex-girlfriends just before he heads for the altar. It's a fitting intro for Machado, who's at full sensual throttle when the lights come up -- all hair, lipstick and limbs accenting an endearing naughtiness that nearly overpowers her former lover.

There's a "Girl Manifesto" at the end of the invigorating poetry jam "Black Butterfly," the opening piece in the Taper, Too season. "I am 100% Girl Power--not the Spice Girl kind," says one Latina, who later adds: "I am never going to carry a beeper." Then, from another: "I am no longer afraid of a blank page." "Black Butterfly" has been touring area high schools for a while now. Its full title is "Black Butterfly, Jaguar Girl, Pin~ata Woman and Other Superhero Girls Like Me."

In 1992, Assembly of God minister Keenan Roberts reclaimed Jerry Falwell's concept of replacing secular Halloween motifs with graphic realizations of sinful behavior. Roberts' outreach has spawned about 3,000 houses nationwide, inspiring "Hell House," George Ratliff's 2001 documentary.

After a mysterious two-week disappearance, the body of Lisa (Lili Taylor), Nate Fisher's (Peter Krause) sweet, gentle, murderously passive-aggressive wife, washed ashore somewhere near Santa Barbara. The news, which came at the end of the final episode of "Six Feet Under" last June, broke the fever that had raged throughout much the third season. Thanks in part to Taylor's moony presence, the congenitally repressed Fisher family had plunged headlong into lunacy.
