After housing phantom murderers and falling chandeliers twice since late 1997, the Pantages Theatre is finally home to "Evita," the one Andrew Lloyd Webber / Harold Prince collaboration that's truly worth the popular adulation that usually goes to their "Phantom of the Opera." This touring "Evita," previously reviewed at Orange County Performing Arts Center, brings the show back to the city where it had its American premiere 20 years ago (at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion).

In the course of an interview in the early '50s at the Casa Rosada, American journalist Fleur Cowles asked Eva Peron, "What makes you happy?" The famed first lady of Argentina, wife of dictator Juan Peron, smiled and invited the female reporter to accompany her that night to a rally at a large theater in Buenos Aires. The two women were led through a back entrance to a stage where they could hear the murmur of a crowd from behind the closed curtain.

A decorated Vietnam veteran convicted of rape 25 years ago became a free man after a judge in Dallas ruled he probably wouldn't have been found guilty if DNA testing had been available at the time. Specialized DNA testing performed this year proved Larry Fuller, 57, was not the assailant who raped a Dallas woman in her home. Fuller has spent about two decades in prison for the crime.

Why do drummers want to become bandleaders? The appearance of Jeff Hamilton's Trio at the Jazz Bakery on Friday offered another reminder of a question for which no satisfactory answer has yet been found. Of the three main elements in jazz performance--melody, harmony and rhythm--the drummer must defer to another player to furnish the first two. True, many drummers have led their own groups with great success, but often with essential help from their sidemen. The case of Hamilton is puzzling.

Eva Peron takes an awfully long time to die at the end of "Evita." Always has and always will. The Andrew Lloyd Webber/Tim Rice musical is just written that way. In a good production, we probably don't mind. Her slow passing, with all those histrionics as she broadcasts her big adios to the faithful, and her deathbed gasps later, serve as an emotional coda to a spectacularly cynical and opportunistic career.

A 38-year-old Ojai man committed suicide by hanging himself in his cell at the Ventura County Jail, sheriff's investigators said Sunday. Larry Fuller, a woodworker who was arrested late Friday near Ojai on suspicion of being under the influence of a controlled substance, was found hanging from a ceiling fixture by a bedsheet at about 5 p.m. Saturday, said Cmdr. Kenneth Kipp. Kipp said Fuller had been arrested in Meiners Oaks about 8 p.m.

Imagine an entire musical performed as though the cast were following footprints pasted to the floor to diagram their steps. That's how it feels to watch Civic Light Opera of South Bay Cities' revival of "Evita." Everyone purposefully hits the marks, but with little spontaneity or conviction. If there is any reason to see this rehash of the 1978 Andrew Lloyd Webber-Tim Rice rock opera, it is to catch Christa Jackson's performance as Eva Peron.

An Azusa woman who allegedly posed as a nurse in order to snatch a newborn baby girl from a Covina home Wednesday was arrested, along with her husband, at a West Covina medical office building hours after the abduction, authorities said. The baby, 8-day-old Sara Kang, was examined at the hospital's emergency room, Covina Police Lt. Ron McKee said, and "was in good shape and showed no signs of maltreatment." She was quickly reunited with her parents, Paul and Leslie Kang, he said.

Most of the 6,000 initial job cuts expected from the $49-billion British Petroleum-Amoco Corp. merger will occur in the United States, BP Chief Executive John Browne said Wednesday. The merger will have the "greatest impact" on the combined U.S. refining and marketing operations of the two companies, Browne said at a conference for media and Wall Street analysts a day after the deal was announced.
