There's a lovely, glancing moment in "James Joyce's The Dead," making its West Coast premiere at the Ahmanson Theatre, in which Sally Ann Howes and Marni Nixon--the music-teaching Morkan sisters of Dublin--perform for their delighted party guests a music hall-style song, "Naughty Girls." It's utterly out of character for the Morkans, which is part of its charm. And Howes and Nixon bring their own musical-theater histories to the routine.

Sally Ann Howes and Marni Nixon had never met before they were cast last year as the elderly, unmarried Morkan sisters, who host an annual Christmas party in "James Joyce's The Dead," now at the Ahmanson Theatre. The two women certainly knew about each other, though. Nixon is well known as the voice behind the stars of such movies as "West Side Story" and "My Fair Lady," and she also has a distinguished record in recitals and opera.

A first-class television revival of an Alan Jay Lerner show would be preferable to 10 star-studded black-tie collections of excerpts from his shows. Nevertheless, "An Evening With Alan Jay Lerner" (at 9 tonight on Channels 28, 15 and 24) has a few moments to remember. Rudolf Nureyev, of all people, teaches correct English diction in "The Rain in Spain" (and dances more gracefully than most Henry Higginses).
