Singer Kay Cole's nightclub debut at the Gardenia Thursday night provided a curious variation on Pirandello; it was One Character in Search of an Act. A former singer/dancer in Broadway musicals and a member of the original cast of "Chorus Line," Cole opened with a craftily planned cameo audition scene, complete with the voice of an off-stage director, and overflowing with typical self-focused, show-biz concerns: "Will I make it? Am I (pick one) pretty? tall? good enough?"

"Next year," chairman Roz Wyman said, approaching Bev and Al Zacky. "Next year it can be Zacky Chickens Present the 'Betty Clooney Foundation Singers Salute the Songwriters Award.' And we'll put it on television." None of that seems surprising, especially after the curtain fell on the three-hour spectacular that played to a full house at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion Monday night. Like love, the awards got better the second time around.

Sue Raney, who came and went in two nights at the Vine St. Bar & Grill, brings together in a single performance the most desirable elements one looks for in a jazz-inclined singer. Guaranteed in any Raney show: overall concept, choice of material, sensitive interpretation and, for good measure, physical beauty. On Tuesday evening, her first performance began and ended in a jazz waltz groove, starting with "How's That for Openers?"

"THE BROADWAY ALBUM." Barbra Streisand. Columbia. Streisand doing theater songs--a perfectly good idea for an album. And she is right on the money when she simply deals with the material, as in "Can't Help Lovin' That Man" (to a tasty harmonica obbligato by Stevie Wonder) and "Send in the Clowns." A "Porgy and Bess" medley goes well, too. When Streisand puts herself in the service of a song, she makes it her own. When the reverse occurs--disaster.

In the long history of Oscar ceremonies, few matched the craziness, drama and poignancy of the 46th Academy Awards, which took place almost 40 years ago on April 2, 1974, at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. That ceremony, hosted by writer-director John Huston, singer-actress Diana Ross, and actors Burt Reynolds and David Niven, featured a streaker who ran across the stage; a legendary comedian receiving a special award; a multiple Oscar-winning actress (who was ceremony-shy) make her only appearance at the Academy Awards, while another famous actress, who was dying of cancer, made her final bow. And youth was served, as a 10-year-old actress became the youngest to win a competitive Oscar while a composer a few months shy of his 30th birthday won all three music awards.

When Betty Buckley came on stage Friday night at Feinstein's at the Cinegrill, it was a bit like discovering that your favorite aunt was also a really cool singer. Elegantly garbed in a black pants outfit, she exuded warmth and affability, blending her songs with whimsical, insightful reminiscences. The up-close and intimate Feinstein's environment provided the perfect living room-like ambience, a place in which her finely drawn musical portraits could be fully experienced and enjoyed.
