CORONET WATCH: One of the mid-sized theaters that might be a prime site for productions under a new Equity contract, the 272-seat Coronet in West Hollywood, is going through its own changes. Owner Petrie Robie said she is looking for a long-term leaseholder with its own artistic director--someone who could produce shows, as opposed to simply booking them. She contended that her last lessees, Norman Maibaum and Edward Davis, charged too much for rental productions that came into the Coronet.

Petrie Robie's mother, Frieda Berkoff, commissioned the building of the Coronet Theatre in 1947, and it remained in family hands for nearly 50 years. Robie decided recently that she wanted to sell it, but she was picky about the buyer. "I wouldn't have sold it to anyone who wouldn't turn a princess into a queen," Robie said. She conducted a private sale, approaching "at the most" about 10 potential buyers.

MOVIES Suitable for Framing: In a departure from the usual magazine cover, Vanity Fair will drop most front-page wording in the November issue it mails to subscribers in order to show off what it calls "a keepsake" portrait of Madonna. The photograph by Mario Testino shows Madonna, in black hat and furs, as Eva Peron, the role she plays in the forthcoming "Evita." The magazine includes daily diaries Madonna wrote while making the film as well as a portfolio of photos of her taken by Testino.

Courtyards were history's earliest garden rooms. Egyptians built them, Greeks paved them with stone, Romans set them off with colonnades, and for the same reasons the Persians loved them, so do we. Cooled by a fountain, they're a blessing in a hot climate. Their walls shut out the street, the neighbor's dogs, the howl of the Santa Anas. They give us frontyards we can use and invite us to enjoy them--for reading, lolling, feeling cosseted and soothed.
