Kevin Tighe doesn't mention "Emergency!" in his biography in the program for the Mark Taper Forum's production of the acclaimed dark comedy "Bengal Tiger in the Baghdad Zoo." The 65-year-old actor originated the title role in Rajiv Joseph's audacious, Iraqi War-themed play when it premiered last year at the Kirk Douglas Theatre. Currently in previews at the Taper with the original cast, the Pulitzer Prize finalist officially opens April 25 and continues through May 30. So is Tighe embarrassed over his starring role as L.A. fireman-paramedic Roy DeSoto in the 1972-77 series from producer Jack Webb that also starred Randolph Mantooth as his partner, along with singer Julie London and her husband, "Route 66" composer Bobby Troup.

With reference to "Forget Jelly, George Is Jammin' " (by Patrick Pacheco, Nov. 20) and "It's a Public With a Punch" (by Laurie Winer, Nov. 27), I would like to correct a now-common misconception. While George C. Wolfe is indeed a writer and a director, he did not direct the stage production of his play "The Colored Museum" at New York's Public Theater in 1986. The director was L. Kenneth Richardson, then-artistic director of the Crossroads Theatre Company in New Jersey, where the play had its world premiere under Richardson's direction.
