In an episode of "Star Trek," Captain Kirk had to defeat an entity that drew its strength from hate and conflict. In "Denial" at the Actors Alley, Bernard Cooper (Terry J. Evans, alternating with Joe J. Garcia) is such an evil being--a small, unassuming, almost pleasant professor of timber-stress analysis, whose twisted thirst for notoriety feeds his ego and expands his power. Evans slowly reveals this rotten side and his desire to destroy in the Peter Sagal drama.

I am writing in response to Spero Kessaris' Feb. 25 letter, in which he condemns director Bob Rafelson for suggesting that Sir Richard Burton, the hero of Rafelson's film "Mountains of the Moon," might have had a homosexual relationship with John Hanning Speke.

Forget tradition. But completely . Wake up to non-traditional casting, use of language and, yes, standards. The Cornerstone Theater Company's experiment in theater with the Angelus Plaza Senior Activity Center at the downtown Angelus Plaza housing complex takes the word community to the nth degree of seriously. Its production of "The Toy Truck," which opened Friday on the Plaza promenade, is like nothing Los Angeles has ever experienced.

"Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights" is sufficiently original and engaging to be called merely "Havana Nights" but will no doubt get a boost by the reference to the popular 1987 "Dirty Dancing" even though it is actually drawn from the personal experiences of its co-producer-choreographer JoAnn Jansen.
