It's a good thing Actors Alley constructed sturdy door frames for the set of "Room Service." The play, produced in the Storefront space of the El Portal, is a classic farce, with nearly every scene punctuated by a loud slam. Actors Alley sticks to the comedy as John Murray and Allen Boretz wrote it, revealing why the show was a hit on Broadway in 1937 and why the Marx Brothers film of 1938 remains a classic. "Room Service" is funny without being cynical, complicated without being confusing.

Eric Young supposedly had been removed from the Dodgers' plans, but plans change. The veteran second baseman will return to the starting lineup when he comes off the disabled list, sources said Wednesday. Dodger officials decided to reinstate the speedy leadoff batter once he recovers from a left ankle sprain because benching Young would further decrease his limited trade value.

Was Kirk Gibson's "Roy Hobbs" homer in the bottom of the ninth for the Dodgers in Game 1 of the 1988 World Series the Greatest Moment in Baseball History? Or was it Babe Ruth "calling his shot" in the '32 classic? Maybe it was Bobby Thomson's pennant-winning blow for the New York Giants in the '51 playoffs? Maybe you like pitching. How about Johnny Vander Meer's back-to-back no-hitters for Cincinnati in '38? Don't wait up to see that again.
