Actor, playwright, painter, pharmacist. Peter Mark Richman is all of those and more--philanthropist, filmmaker, former semi-pro fullback and, not to put too fine a point on it, elder of the religious brotherhood Subud. But when people refer to him as a Renaissance man, he finds it embarrassing. "I leave that to Michelangelo," he says.

Plays used to open in Boston and New Haven, before they really opened in New York. Now plays open anywhere. Peter Mark Richman's play "4 Faces," for example, opened last spring at Orange's Chapman College. It was an odd little semi-out-of-town tryout, clearly a work-in-progress, with a lot of progress still needed. "4 Faces" is now at the Ventura Court Theatre, but the only real progress has been a more intimate venue. If there has been any trimming or refining of the text, it's undetectable.

Peter Mark Richman's solo performance, "4 Faces," at Chapman University's Waltmar Theatre, would seem to be about an actor displaying his range. In Los Angeles, the center of the film industry, this is known as showcasing. And for a lot of people, showcasing isn't theater. Still, one could understand if Richman wanted to make his own declaration of independence from the hundreds (thousands?) of tough, tight-lipped character roles he's handled over the years.

I was rather annoyed at Kenneth Turan's review of "The Wrestler" ["As Fake as Wrestling," Dec. 17]. I saw the film at an academy screening and to dismiss this fine piece of work by the director, Darren Aronofsky, as an "essentially fake film" does a major disservice to the daring and creative director, but to the L.A. Times' readers as well. To see and experience the degrading quality of the lives of these hulking wrestlers was a revelation, and the powerful performance by Mickey Rourke in the lead role was more than astonishing -- it was lived-in and honest and touching.
REAL ESTATE

Architects Bobrow/Thomas and Associates have designed a three-level hospital structure with an 80-bed skilled nursing facility and ancillary services wing. The floors of the patients' rooms are grouped around exterior courts or patios, while interior lounges create gathering places for patients and visitors. A central courtyard is provided and the smaller patios introduce natural light into the rooms. The Mediterranean-style complex is two stories high with a subterranean garden level.

Buena Park got its start in 1887 as a crossroads along Grand Avenue (now Beach Boulevard). For years, the 108-foot-wide road was considered the widest in the state. Beside the famous berry farm owned by the Knott family, the city developed a popular downtown area that by the 1930s included clubs, bars, restaurants and boutiques on Grand Avenue and Artesia Boulevard.

We are told not to speak ill of the dead. Accordingly, regarding Georgia Frontiere, I can say nothing at all. Jerry Underwood Yorba Linda -- I have read many of the glowing remembrances of Madame Ram, but here's another point of view: I will remember her as the person who took professional football out of Los Angeles because she wasn't wealthy enough and blamed the fans for her unfettered greed. David C. Hall Whittier -- I was always appalled at the lousy press Georgia Frontiere received in the L.A. Times.
