Richard has acted and sung in musicals since her arrival in Orange County in 1990.

A critic once said that Jerry Herman didn't write songs, he wrote anthems. It's a very good way of explaining the sense of energy in Herman's writing and its insistence on being entertaining. Although the production of "Jerry's Girls" at the Cabrillo Playhouse is often entertaining, the lack of energy in Dan Blackley's direction, and more especially in the plonky musical direction and accompaniment by Diane King Vann, takes a lot of sparkle out of the evening.

Laguna Beach resident Lisa Richards may be familiar to attendees of the Laguna Playhouse who have seen her performing in "Inside Out" and other productions. On Friday, when she opened a two-night cabaret run at the Cinegrill in the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, however, Richards appeared as a character Orange County theatergoers may not be familiar with: herself.

Ventura resident George Edward Murray, a construction inspector with the city of Camarillo, died Saturday after a short illness. He was 63. Murray was born Feb. 5, 1935, in Mt. Clemens, Mich. He moved to Ventura County 27 years ago from Bakersfield. He was a construction inspector with the county before joining the city of Camarillo more than five years ago, said Dan Greeley, director of engineering services. "He's going to be sorely missed," Greeley said.

"Triumph of Love" is a triumph for Long Beach's International City Theatre. Like "Side Show," "Triumph of Love" is a little musical that didn't last long on Broadway in late 1997 but appears very much alive in the more intimate environs of a Southern California mid-size theater in 2002. This "Triumph" shares a leading lady with the Colony Theatre's recent production of "Side Show."

Whether you will like the revue of Rodgers and Hammerstein songs at the Newport Theatre Arts Center probably depends on your tolerance for the kind of romantically cloying sentiment best exemplified by their most familiar Broadway tunes.

Stacked against today's other entertainment options--especially the truckload of Hollywood non-blockbusters--the Fullerton Civic Light Opera revival of Walton Jones' loving musical, "The 1940's Radio Hour," looks awfully good. It's as much of an escape as a Batmobile ride and offers things the competition lacks: shaded characters, unabashed fun and a little history. Not a new deal, but a good one, a paean to the American spirit during World War II.

They each have a hang-up and a song to go with it. They're neurotic, crabby, funny, confused and ambitious. They're all women, and they're in group therapy. "Inside Out," which had its Orange County premiere Thursday at the Laguna Playhouse, features so many polished singers in this spare, handsome production that they almost make the show seem better than it is.

For a 1978 musical revue that lasted only a few weeks on Broadway, "Working" has proved to be a remarkable flop. Sixteen years later, it is still putting in lots of overtime entertaining audiences at theaters across the country. Some critics have put down the show, adapted by Stephen Schwartz and Nina Faso from Studs Terkel's priceless collection of interviews with ordinary working people, also called "Working." It has been dismissed as preachy, maudlin and, by now, dated.
