Last Chance Theater "A Christmas Carol"-- Hal Landon Jr. has played Scrooge for 22 years for South Coast Repertory. Under the direction of John-David Keller, Landon continues to convey Scrooge's interior pain with a delicate touch, and his toothy Robert Duvall smile--sparingly deployed--reveals the man beneath the archetype. The play, adapted by Jerry Patch, is a most stage-worthy adaptation, satisfyingly paced, with generous portions of the Dickens original.

I find it very interesting to note that any entity that has gained some recognition is suddenly very vulnerable to attack by the L.A. Times writers. One wonders: Why the desire to attack when success is achieved? Is it simply the nature of the game? Or is it something much more complex? Whatever it is, I resent it. This time, Randy Lewis has attacked something very near and dear to me: South Coast Repertory Theatre ("Need $10,000? Let's See, Just Where's That Wallet?," Calendar March 5)

"Return with us now to those thrilling days of yesteryear . . . " That's how the radio announcer introduced millions of kids to the Lone Ranger when youngsters listened to his adventures while they did their homework. Their minds made up what the characters looked like, the costumes, the scenery and the settings. It was magical. Kids used their imaginations.

Say buddy, can you spare 10 grand? Inflation has taken its toll on just about everything by now--the nickel cigar, the dime novel, the $500 claw hammer--but it seems that not so long ago you could satisfy an outstretched hand with pocket change. Nowadays it's another story. Been over to South Coast Repertory Theatre in Costa Mesa lately? Once you finish reading the program notes for George Bernard Shaw's "You Never Can Tell" and start flipping through the rest of the Performing Arts magazine that the ushers hand everyone, you well might come across the page that bears "A Letter from Mrs. Richard J. Flamson, III."
