"There are 1 1/2 tons of scenery hanging above your head," states a note in the program for "Orestes" at the Mandell Weiss Theatre. Now, we've always known that the theater should be a place of danger, but this may be the first time that such a literal spin was placed on that idea. There are also 1 1/2 tons of obvious symbolism in this reinvention of the Euripidian play about the dysfunctional House of Atreus, as adapted by Charles Mee and directed by Robert Woodruff.

Vinyl shower curtains sold at major retailers across the country emit toxic chemicals that have been linked to serious health problems, according to a report released Thursday by a national environmental organization. The curtains contained high concentrations of chemicals that are linked to liver damage as well as damage to the central nervous, respiratory and reproductive systems, said researchers for the Virginia-based Center for Health, Environment & Justice.

Question: I want to get rid of shower curtains and put in a permanent glass or plastic shower door. The shower is in the bathtub. The problem is that I have small children, and I must bathe them in the tub. With sliding panels or doors that open, half of the tub stays shut up, and it's awkward to reach the children. Is there such a thing as a door that opens all the way? Answer: There are a couple of options. One bath enclosure slides overhead.

It turns out that $6,000 shower curtain is in the maid's room. Jurors in the corporate larceny trial of two former executives of Tyco International Ltd. learned this during a video tour Tuesday of the $18-million, company-owned apartment where former Chief Executive L. Dennis Kozlowski stayed when he was in New York. The 15-minute tape, recorded in May 2002 and July 2003, shows a sumptuously appointed duplex occupying the 10th and 11th floors of 950 Fifth Ave.

New plastic shower-curtain liners give off a strong, pungent odor that can last several days. To eliminate the smell in only one day, lay the liner outside in direct sunlight and turn it over every few hours.

Question: I dislike all shower doors. I've heard that on some stalls, they're not necessary. Can you give me some information on them? D.N. San Clemente Answer: "I don't know about stalls that don't use doors, unless you're referring to shower curtains," says Joe Kump of Niagara Plumbing in Garden Grove. "But there are some new doors and enclosures on the market that you may find you like. On the double-sliding doors, there are some new models out that don't use a bottom track.

With all the mud that's been sticking to corporate America lately, you could imagine that any self-respecting CEO might want to hit the showers. But even there, former Tyco tycoon L. Dennis Kozlowski evidently couldn't stay out of hot water. Many words have already been published about allegations that the 55-year-old executive raided millions in Tyco funds to underwrite a lavish lifestyle. But none are likely to have more staying power than these: $6,000 shower curtain.

You might think that the shower area, which gets daily doses of warm water, soap and shampoo, would stay naturally clean. Not so. Mold, mildew, soap film and other stains mar surfaces, and mineral deposits clog shower heads. Here are some tips to help keep shower stalls or tub showers clean and free of clogs: Clean your shower right after using it, when steam has loosened the dirt. Just wipe off the damp surfaces with a paper towel.

Poking around the kitchenwares department of STOR, in search of a Euro-stepladder, we encountered a slight young woman considering a selection of knives in a butcher-block display. Her long black hair swung forward, obscuring her face from view, but we could tell from her stance that she was intent upon her mission. She reached out to the largest piece of cutlery and, in one powerful, swift motion, withdrew it from the block.
