So what's he done for us lately?

Delay Follows Prize: The opening of "Angels in America: Millennium Approaches" at Broadway's Walter Kerr Theatre has been postponed from April 29 to May 4. More time is needed to make sure that the computerized screens that move on and off Robin Wagner's set are working, a spokesman said. Tony Kushner's Pulitzer-winning drama will still qualify for this year's Tonys; the cutoff date for Tony eligibility is May 5.

Nice article by Jeff Miller ("Gone Country," March 4). But it's too bad he didn't mention the individuals who are responsible for the alt-country scene continuing: Bliss, who tirelessly puts together the most extensive e-list of alt-country, roots and Americana with Shilah Morrow and sponsors the Highland night; Charlotte Chamberlain, who booked the now-defunct Culver Saloon and is responsible for the "scene" at the Cinema; and Ronnie Mack...

Michael Bennett's "Dreamgirls" is one of the seminal Broadway musicals. Those who saw the original production, which opened in 1981, have strong memories of this kinetic, fast-paced show loosely based on the lives and successes of such R&B stars as the Supremes, James Brown, Jackie Wilson and the Shirelles. "Dreamgirls," featuring the music of Tom Eyen and book and lyrics by Henry Krieger, was generally met with raves. The New York Times' Frank Rich declared "Dreamgirls" history making.

Last Chance Theater "Flower Drum Song"--Totalitarian repression, cheesecake and Lea Salonga: These were the primary ingredients of the pop gruel known as "Miss Saigon." The ingredients were recombined for a new dish, "Flower Drum Song" (although Jennifer Paz took over the role during the run at the Taper). A few tons shy of a mega-musical--no fake helicopter here, no power ballads saccharine enough to stop communism dead in its tracks--it's a raffishly entertaining response to the 1958 original.

Sasha Cohen left Southern California in the summer of 2002 to refine her talent and win a world figure skating title. Her dream remains elusive, even though she studied with Tatiana Tarasova and Robin Wagner, who coached Salt Lake City Olympic champions Alexei Yagudin and Sarah Hughes, respectively. Still intent on standing atop the podium but pining for her old life in Laguna Niguel, Cohen has returned to Orange County and coach John Nicks, who launched her toward international prominence. U.S.

When Santa Barbara Civic Light Opera opened "42nd Street" in June, the organization was just a kid. But when the show closes next week, Santa Barbara Civic Light Opera will have emerged as--a star. Well, maybe not a star--civic light operas don't get that kind of publicity. But the Santa Barbara production of "42nd Street," the 1980 musical based on the 1933 movie about a chorine's big break on Broadway, is so crisply executed that it's easy to get carried away by its spirit.

Audiences craving unbridled pizazz should race to “42nd Street” at the Carpenter Center in Long Beach. Musical Theatre West opens its 60th season with the indestructible backstager, and scores a toe-tapping triumph. When it premiered in 1980, this stage adaptation of the landmark 1933 film based on Bradford Ropes' novel made headlines over producer David Merrick's opening-night announcement of helmer Gower Champion's death. The show won the Tony Award, ran 3,486 performances, toured everywhere and returned in revised form in 2001, a hit all over again.
