When actor Stacy Keach was a student at UC Berkeley in the early '60s, he appeared in Bertolt Brecht's political satire "The Life of Galileo." Although he played a small role, the experience sparked a lifelong interest in the 17th century astronomer. In fact, during a recent conversation, Keach rattled off facts about the man he referred to as "the father of modern science." "I've learned so much about Galileo that I didn't know before," he said.

After more than a year of negotiations, an acclaimed literary organization has signed a new lease to remain in the former Venice City Hall, officials said. The 10-year lease for Beyond Baroque, a literary salon and bookstore which took up residence in the historic building in 1980, was approved by the city Department of General Services Monday, said Niki Tennant, a spokeswoman for City Councilwoman Ruth Galanter, who pushed for the unusually long lease. The annual rent is $1, Tennant said.
Richard Dreyfuss and Marsha Mason, founding members of the award-winning L.A. Theatre Works Radio Company, are protesting a decision on the part of KCRW-FM (89.9) to drop "KCRW Playhouse" and its "star attraction": their group's Sunday-night series "The Play's the Thing." In a letter sent to general manager Ruth Seymour on Monday, the actors called the move, initiated in late March, a retreat from the kind of programming that made the station the "flagship" of the Los Angeles public radio scene.
