"Lovely!" isn't pretty. The dysfunctional contingent of alienated Brits in Brenda Krantz's new black comedy at the Santa Monica Playhouse pushes way past quirky eccentricity and into the realm of the grotesque. Chris DeCarlo's staging faithfully honors that quality, but leaves no entree to engage the sympathies of an audience.

A group of actors who make their money on the soaps--"Santa Barbara," in particular--are doing "Hamlet" for love at the Shakespeare Society of America. The results are entirely respectable, if a little colorless. Lane Davies is Hamlet. He opens with the 'To be or not to be" soliloquy, as if to get that out of the way immediately. This is the production's major innovation.

Louise Sorel plays Vivian Alamain on NBC's "Days of Our Lives" and Margaret in Odyssey Theatre's "A Perfect Ganesh," which runs through Sept. 11. A Perfect Hide-Out: I am shy of going out on big weekend nights. I prefer to hide out at home, reading or writing. I write journal entries every day. I always use a typewriter or longhand; I can't write on a computer. It's too cold. Golden Age: I do love to go to movies. The Crest Theater is wonderful.
