"Our enemy is Satan, not any other religion," the Rev. Jack Graham said. "Our issue in life is not Muhammad or any other religious leader, it's Jesus Christ."

As she picked up the corpse of a 2-month-old, Mary Labas learned on the second day of her coroner's internship that death still had the power to intimidate her. "I did not want to put this child down. I did not want to part with her," said Labas, 32. "Just holding her little head in my hand, I'm thinking, 'Oh, man.' " As do most interns, students in the Allegheny County coroner's office work long hours for no pay.

By the time the Opera Theatre of St. Louis' 1982 production of "The Beggar's Opera" arrives in Los Angeles in April, it will have been performed in an apple shed, a barn, a loft and a warehouse. "Three years ago, we played in an apple shed near the Mississippi River, down in Clarksville, Mo., 75 miles from St. Louis," Colin Graham, artistic director of the Missouri company, explained this week. "The shed looked like a great old Hogarthian barn, and it held about 300 people.

When the Irish finally take over the world, it'll be the likes of "The Matchmaker" that people look back on and say, "Ahhhh, that's how they caught us with our pants down. . . . " You know the movie drill: singing, praying, quaint traditions, barely comprehensible accents and someone doing the John Wayne-quiet man routine. Or in the case of Janeane Garofalo--star of "The Matchmaker"--the decidedly unquiet woman.

SAN DIEGO -- Boxing has long served as a metaphor for theater. Bertolt Brecht, the grand innovator of 20th century political drama, envisioned spectators sitting around the stage puffing on cigars as they watched characters attempting to knock each other out with contrasting viewpoints. "In This Corner" -- Steven Drukman's play about the great heavyweight champion Joe Louis, premiering here at the Old Globe -- follows Brecht's lead and literally transforms the stage into a boxing ring.

September 22, 1991 | Tobi Tobias, Tobias is the dance critic for New York magazine and a senior editor at Dance magazine.
It seems as if the obituaries had hardly run before people were booting up their computers to produce books on Martha Graham, the most richly gifted and most personally vivid artist in the history of classical modern dance. In the course of her 96 years, Graham, who died last April, was first considered a renegade, then an acknowledged genius, and finally an institution; now she's well on her way to becoming an industry. Actually, the most important entry in the first round of publications, Agnes de Mille's "Martha: The Life and Work of Martha Graham," was in the making for over two decades and circumspectly awaited the great lady's passing.
