With the curtain barely lowered on the 1990 Los Angeles Festival, organizers are already looking ahead to the next L.A. Festival in 1993. The first step in that long-range planning is "New Geographies of Performance," a conference and debriefing of sorts scheduled for Jan. 10-13. "The idea is to examine the festival from some point of perspective a few months down the road and examine the direction that future festivals might go," said Norman Frisch, the festival's associate director.

"How'd you meet your wife?" "Who is buried in Grant's tomb?" "Say the secret word and the duck will come down and pay you an extra $100." Those lines were standard fare on the comedy quiz show "You Bet Your Life." Starring Groucho Marx, he of the bouncing eyebrows and the ever-present cigar, the show ran for 14 years, first on radio, then on TV. Marx died 19 years ago last month; the show went off the air 35 years ago this month.

In the Labor Day issue of Calendar, Norman Frisch shared his recollections of Groucho Marx's radio and then TV show "You Bet Your Life" ("Groucho a Memorable Boss? Bet Your Life on It"). It has been nearly 50 years but I can still recall Groucho's on-the-air ad-libs. I had to follow them closely since I was the newest and youngest staffer in Chrysler's De Soto Division Advertising Department. One of my toughest jobs was to write back to listeners who had been offended by some off-color nuance they perceived in a Groucho one-liner zinger.

Now is the summer of our discontent. If you'd like a little theatrical relief from all that's ailing America's body politic, Anne Bogart and SITI Company are probably not your ticket. FOR THE RECORD: Tragedian's name: The subheadline in an earlier version of this online article misspelled the name of ancient Greek tragedian Euripides as Euripedes. Their new adaptation of Euripides' "The Trojan Women," which begins previews Thursday at the Getty Villa's outdoor amphitheater, aims to rekindle the original political intent of a play that drives home an unrelentingly dark vision of what war does to victims and victors alike.

What the 1993 Los Angeles Festival will look like, how long it will run and who it may include are still undecided matters, the stuff of committees and focus groups discussing the festival's "process." But one thing is certain: There's going to be a lot less money around for next year's event than there's been in the past. With a general theme of Africa, the Middle East and the African-American Diaspora, the 1993 festival's budget will range from $3.5 million to $4.

Lighting designer Jennifer Tipton met Sardono W. Kusumo, an Indonesian dancer and choreographer, in 2008 at a workshop she was giving in Java. Tipton, one of this country's preeminent designers, had participants reverse their usual roles: Lighting designers made dance pieces; choreographers lighted them. Returning to Jakarta later that year, Tipton discovered a different kind of artistic shift. Sardono, known for his intense physical style, had begun painting. He was producing massive canvases, up to 30 feet high.

The Los Angeles Theatre Center lobby looked like an international airport the other night. Russian playwright Vladimir Gurbayev was huddling with director Bill Bushnell about their production of "Sarcophagus," while one crowd went downstairs to see the Earth Players of South Africa present "Bopha!" and a second crowd went upstairs to see a modern-dance group from Los Angeles, the Rudy Perez Dance Company. A third crowd had come to see an avant-garde theater company from New York.
