Purists and snobs can say what they will, but Stephen Wadsworth has directed a dazzling version of "Changes of Heart," the 1723 Marivaux court comedy usually titled "The Double Inconstancy." In fact, there is nothing usual about the production that opened Thursday at the Mark Taper Forum.

For many people, the Enlightenment looms as a distant and hazy moment in the development of Western culture, the stuff of a forgotten history lesson at best. But to opera and theater director Stephen Wadsworth, it's a period whose uncertainties mirror our own. After the intellectual advances of the 17th century, the Age of Reason was a time when philosophy was being reshaped along rationalist lines, promoting new social, political and scientific ideals.

In the early days of Sigmund Freud's musings about the mind, fellow Austrian Arthur Schnitzler, a doctor and writer, covered similar territory in his plays and novels. Today, Schnitzler is best remembered for his theatrical roundelay of sexual partners, "La Ronde," which caused riots and earned him an obscenity trial.

For opening night of "As You Like It" at the Lowell Davies Festival Theatre, the Forest of Arden fell victim to the Park of Balboa. The Davies is the outdoor venue in the Old Globe's three-theater complex, and it's normally a grand setting for Shakespeare under the stars.
