As a boy in Cincinnati, Ron Bohmer dreamed of being a rock star or a superhero like Superman or Batman. His path instead led him to Broadway and, in what he calls "a great wish fulfillment," he became a legendary hero after all. During 1999, he served a half-year hitch playing the title role in "The Scarlet Pimpernel," the musical that composer Frank Wildhorn and lyricist-librettist Nan Knighton based on the oft-told story of a heroic, swashbuckling swordsman.

Waiting for 'Love': The Thursday preview of "Aspects of Love" at the Wilshire Theatre has been canceled, and the musical's opening moved from Sunday to March 11, in order to make up for rehearsal time that was lost due to illnesses of actors Ron Bohmer and David Chaney. Tickets may be exchanged for a later performance at the Wilshire or Pantages Theatre box offices or by mail, or refunds are available at point of purchase.

There's a perfect marriage on stage at the Orange County Performing Arts Center. "Aspects of Love," Andrew Lloyd Webber's lush operetta that opened there Tuesday night, has been mounted with such exquisite care and extravagance by director Robin Phillips that the production is a match made in heaven. It's an evening's homage to the rapture of passion, the enchantment of beauty, the fleeting blink of that golden eye called Love. And everyone is in on the seduction.

In the touring "The Scarlet Pimpernel" at Orange County Performing Arts Center, the fact that Ron Bohmer's campy Sir Percy is basically a carbon copy of the flighty aristocrat created on Broadway by Douglas Sills doesn't hurt the show much. What's troubling is the sole difference between them. Whereas Sills seemed to live the role (at L.A.'s Ahmanson Theatre as well as on Broadway), Bohmer appears to be wearing it like a costume.

Call it a case of serious identity crisis, but Andrew Lloyd Webber's curious "Aspects of Love," which opened Thursday at the Wilshire Theatre, tries for one thing and achieves another. Nearly always. Signs of trouble were already visible in Trevor Nunn's original 1989 London production.

Japan's Zero fighters seemed unstoppable in the early days of World War II, though the Allies eventually were able to overpower the agile airplanes. The Air Museum Planes of Fame will give a flying demonstration--weather permitting--of the only fully authentic flying example of the Japanese Mitsubishi A6M5 Zero in existence. The plane was captured in Saipan in 1944 and rescued from the scrap heap by Planes of Fame founder Edward T. Maloney.

Throughout Andrew Lloyd Webber's "The Phantom of the Opera," the masked man sends notes to other characters--with demands, but also with memo-like comments on the productions of the opera company with whom he shares his living quarters. Exactly how these notes are delivered is left suspiciously unclear. One of them, however, arrived via e-mail this morning. Addressed to the producers, it revealed that the famous man and occasional murderer is truly mellowing.

MOVIES Making a Comeback: At least three projects are in the works celebrating the legacy of the late Mary Pickford, who began her film career 90 years ago. ClassicVision Entertainment, a production company dedicated to the preservation of classic movies starring Pickford and her contemporaries, is at work on "Star Power," a Roddy McDowall-hosted TV documentary about the formation of United Artists in 1919 by Pickford, Charlie Chaplin, Douglas Fairbanks and D.W. Griffith.
