Seaside Terrace

When Linda Humes' mother, Ann, was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease six years ago, Linda hoped to care for her mother, but because she worked full time, she couldn't provide the round-the-clock care that Ann needed. Faced with the realization that she had to find some kind of care facility for her mother, Humes spent the next six months checking out places near her Laguna Beach home. But nothing satisfied her. "I was horrified by what I saw," Humes says.

For San Diego architect Rob Wellington Quigley, the quintessential beach dwelling should capture all the sensuous qualities of living by the sea. So when he designed a waterfront house for an art-collecting couple in Orange County, he planned a structure with 28 transom windows to invite the sights and sounds of the breaking surf. Further blurring the line between inside and out, large doors open onto a seaside terrace, filling the house with fragrant salt breezes.

It was a small vacation, a few days stitched onto a working trip. But it was a pure and restful space in time, a cloud that floated away from the real world and loosened all ties to hours. I knew I was on vacation when I felt the trade winds brush against my face and rattle the lacy leaves of old kiawe trees. I knew I was on vacation when it seemed natural to slip into sea-green flip-flops, and a long cotton cover-up for breakfast.

Ah, "Enchanted April." Surely the script for the recent Broadway staging of the 1922 novel, about four women on an Italian vacation, was written on some balmy seaside terrace. Not quite. Much of the play was written in the Sherman Oaks office of Nationwide Advertising, where playwright Matthew Barber worked from 1994 to 2003 as a proofreader of corporate recruitment ads and, for six years, as office manager. Barber's employers knew he was working on a play.
Most of the performers in the Vintage Variety Theatre began collecting Social Security many, many years ago, but age has hardly slowed them down. * "In September, I celebrated my 89th year in show business," says Estelle Milmar, who was five weeks old when her acrobat parents dressed her as a clown for their act. On Sunday, Milmar will sing "Won't You Come Home, Bill Bailey?"

The Santa Monica City Council will decide whether to demolish or renovate the city's 4,500-seat Civic Auditorium as part of a plan to develop the 11-acre auditorium site near City Hall.

Before last May, neighbors in the upscale Ventura County community of Faria Beach didn't have much reason to think they were unsafe. On one side, they were guarded by electronic gates. On the other side, the ocean lapped at their sea walls. At low tide, strollers greeted one another on the magnificent shoreline six miles up the coast from Ventura. But on the night of May 20, an intruder walked through an open terrace door and stabbed a man and his pregnant wife to death. Their two children, ages 9 and 11, were in the house when the attacker entered.

Technology is messing with John Hurt's head. His rental cellphone is ringing like mad, but when he tries to answer it, no one's there. "Four new messages!" the British actor exclaims, scrutinizing the phone's display screen as if it were written in Sanskrit. "What's going on?" Krapp would sympathize. In "Krapp's Last Tape," Samuel Beckett's quietly devastating one-act memory play, an isolated old man, a writer named Krapp, squares off with another confounding technological contraption: a reel-to-reel tape recorder.
