Larry Bryggman always loved the Marx Brothers -- which may explain why he's also loving his role as the loopy, allergy-pill-popping judge in David Mamet's courtroom farce "Romance."

Actress Parker Posey's "first major acting gig" was not on the "CBS soap opera 'Days of Our Lives,' " as indicated in Chris Willman's profile of her (Film Clips, June 4). It was on CBS' "As the World Turns." "Days of Our Lives" is not even on CBS, it's on NBC. This mistake is all the more surprising since Meg Ryan, to whom the article favorably compares Parker, also had her first break on "As the World Turns," as did Oscar-winner Marisa Tomei. The show seems to be a breeding ground for major female film talent.

Britney Spears has taken responsibility -- well, some -- for driving with her baby son, Sean Preston, sitting in her lap. "I made a mistake and so it is what it is, I guess," Spears told "Access Hollywood" in an interview that was to air Thursday. Several photos published Tuesday showed Spears driving her sport utility vehicle in Malibu with her 4-month-old son perched on her lap rather than strapped into a car seat in the back seat.

WE agree with James C. Taylor that David Mamet's "Romance" was great fun and that the acting by everyone -- but particularly Larry Bryggman as the judge -- was outstanding ["Mamet Adds Humor to His Arsenal in 'Romance,' " Oct. 10]. We also think that Mamet had more on his mind than merely amusing us. "Romance" uses satire to depict squandered opportunities for solving world problems by focusing on a dysfunctional judge (read "government"). We may laugh at first, but let's then ponder Mamet's deeper meaning.

Oprah Winfrey's dramatic unseating of Phil Donahue as ruler of the daytime-TV talk-show circuit came to a fitting conclusion Tuesday as both she and her year-old syndicated program were honored at the 14th annual Daytime Emmy Awards. CBS' "As the World Turns" was named best soap opera, ending a two-year reign by "The Young and the Restless." "As the World Turns" also picked up Emmys for three of its performers: Larry Bryggman (who plays Dr.

The Mark Taper Forum co-produced three of the four productions nominated for best play in this year's Tony Award competition. Nominations for the annual Broadway awards were announced in New York Monday. "Angels in America: Perestroika," "The Kentucky Cycle" and "Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992" all went to Broadway after successful productions at the Taper. The fourth nominee in that category is Arthur Miller's "Broken Glass."

"Proof" is a very nice play with a lovely cast, a breakaway performance by Mary-Louise Parker and an inoffensive way of making audiences feel smart. Is this enough to succeed in the commercial theater, where so many more ambitious plays have vanished without a Broadway blip? We may not be the best judge of that. We admit we were surprised when "Proof," the first major production by a promising newcomer named David Auburn, became a hot ticket at Manhattan Theatre Club last spring.

"As the World Turns," "Santa Barbara," "Pee-wee's Playhouse" and "The Young & the Restless" took the lead in nominations for the 14th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, announced Thursday by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) and the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (ATAS).

David Mamet has long been American drama's fugleman of four-letter words. But his latest play is shocking due to a new F-word: funny. "Romance" is indeed a funny play, but it's also as intricately plotted and thematically pregnant as his other acclaimed, non-comedic works that introduced American theater to the poetry of profanity. This was lost amid the laughter (first nervous, then uproarious) that greeted the play's world premiere in New York City earlier this year.

Even with a behind-the-scenes face lift, there were a lot of familiar faces in the nominations released Wednesday for the 12th annual daytime Emmy Awards. "General Hospital," "The $25,000 Pyramid," "Woman to Woman," hosts Bob Barker, Gary Collins and Merv Griffin and soap opera star Larry Bryggman--all of whom won daytime Emmys last year--were nominated again this year. But it was "All My Children," an ABC serial, that collected the lion's share of nominations, picking up 19 of the 183.
