It's hardly the triumphant return to the United States that South Korean pop superstar Rain had hoped for. The popular singer-actor, dubbed the "Justin Timberlake of Asia," arrived in Hawaii on Monday facing two lawsuits stemming from the cancellation of dates on his 2006-07 North American Rain's Coming tour. Rain's legal troubles follow his attempts to break into the U.S. market and build the kind of loyal fan base here that has eluded other Asian performers.

GIVEN the brain-numbing consistency with which the two performers are compared, South Korean pop superstar Rain is pretty gracious about being referred to as "the Justin Timberlake of Asia." To a point. The Seoul-born heartthrob R&B singer-dancer-actor, who has sold millions of records around the globe and whose every public appearance is greeted with messianic enthusiasm by legions of super-fans from Kuala Lumpur to Taipei, is willing to accept being likened to Mr.

You would have to have a heart of flint and the disposition of an ogre not to be charmed by singer-songwriter, gay and political activist Holly Near. Near's solo outing, "Fire in the Rain . . . Singer in the Storm" at the Mark Taper Forum, is a loving and cajoling bit of unconventional autobiography that traipses lightly through the more positive aspects of the '60s, '70s and even '80s. Seen at a press preview Wednesday, this show puts a different spin on the term family values .

But a tattoo of an "A" spotted on her neck at the Grammy awards has speculators wondering if she got the ink for her her baby boy. Some believe that the A stands for Angelo, which was written on a necklace the new mom was wearing a few weeks ago. But, it could also stand for Adele, you know.

As "The Kentucky Cycle" makes its upcoming rounds--beginning with UCLA's Freud Playhouse in October--the primary co-producers will be the Center Theatre Group, the Kennedy Center, and the Blanche and Irving Laurie Foundation. The first two are no surprise. CTG presented the two-part, Pulitzer Prize-winning epic earlier this year at the Mark Taper Forum.

Some people like to play the field, theatrically speaking. They appreciate the cost benefits of subscriptions, as opposed to single ticket purchases, yet they hesitate to commit themselves to just one theater. So Theatre LA has devised a new Sampler Series, offering a total of six shows at different theaters--three of them 99-seaters, three of them larger. The price is $66, plus a $3 handling charge--$11.50 per show. That compares with an average per-ticket price of $19.
