When actress Kaitlin Hopkins first told her mother that she had been cast as Gwendolen Fairfax in Oscar Wilde's "The Importance of Being Earnest," Hopkins got a dual reaction. Her mother was pleased, of course, that Hopkins would be starring in another Pasadena Playhouse show. And, she added, she'd love to play the role of Gwendolen's mother, Lady Bracknell. Since Hopkins' mother happens to be Tony-winning actress Shirley Knight, director Sheldon Epps was immediately receptive.

Singer Kaitlin Hopkins has a lot going for her. At the relatively young age of 25, her voice has already matured into a warmly expressive instrument. Hopkins looks good, has an easy on-stage manner, and clearly has inherited many of the superb acting instincts of her mother, Shirley Knight.

But obscurity hasn't stopped Actors' Gang from dramatizing his story in "Bat Boy: The Musical," the company's original contribution to this year's Loco Motion festival.

The Indecent Exposure Theatre Company's production of "Immortality" at Los Angeles Theatre Center's Theatre 4 is an intriguing but messy blend of comedy and didacticism. Loosely based on Simone de Beauvoir's novel "All Men Are Mortal," Susan Rubin's drama transpires backstage at a Broadway theater, where temperamental star Lysette (Kaitlin Hopkins) is rehearsing a new play.
