When it comes to Kaufman and Hart's "Once in a Lifetime," director Stephen Zuckerman believes that everything old is new. "There's a lot of reverberation in this play for me," said the New York native, whose staging of the 1930 classic continues at La Jolla Playhouse. "There's a revolution happening in the entertainment industry, changes predicated by advances in hardware technology. In 1928, it was talking films. In 1988, it's videotape recorders.

You don't know anything about anything. If what they say about the movies is true, you'll go far . . --"Once in a Lifetime" With only a little bit of doctoring and one or two minor anachronisms, "Once in a Lifetime" launched the La Jolla Playhouse summer season not with a roar but a meow. This production of Kaufman and Hart's 1930 roasting of the movies, as they whooped, warbled, winced and whined their way into the roaring talkies, was a tad underdone at Sunday's opening.

Is there any doubt that the 35-year-old musical "Kismet" (opening Thursday at the Pasadena Civic as a California Music Theatre production) is the creation of Edwin Lester? "It is and it isn't," said the retired founder of the Los Angeles Civic Light Opera, "because I had such good collaborators with (musical adapters George) Forrest and (Robert) Wright, and now with (CMT director) Gary Davis."

Upon us today is the Los Angeles Theatre Center's self-anointed Big Weekend, a four-day event that is fast becoming LATC's annual way of celebrating theater by holding a kind of theatrical smorgasbord. This year's celebration, beginning at 10:30 this morning, includes a major symposium, staged readings of 10 new plays, regular performances in all three LATC theaters--and a Saturday night bash.

As President Obama and his critics prepare for a climactic battle over healthcare, they face a seeming paradox: Millions of Americans say the system they depend on for everything from routine flu shots to life-saving heart surgery is broken and needs fixing. Yet most Americans also say they're pretty satisfied with their healthcare. The explanation for the apparent contradiction -- and a big reason healthcare has turned into such an incendiary fight -- is that it's not one crisis, it's a bundle of crises.

Everyone agrees it's broke, but nobody can agree on how to fix it. Health care is of concern not only to the estimated 36 million people who lack insurance coverage, but to the millions whose protection is inadequate, to those who are struggling with changes in their coverage--even to people with ample insurance who are nevertheless frustrated by the escalating costs of a system seemingly out of control.

The biz at "Les Miz" is the sort of biz that would make most producers happy. So why has producer Cameron Mackintosh already determined he's closing the show July 2 at the Century City Shubert? "I said before the show opened," Mackintosh explained from New York, "that I wouldn't play the show to empty seats. I'd rather fill them for the next six months." Understandable if the numbers were dropping. But the box-office grosses are good.

When Gov.-elect Arnold Schwarzenegger visits the U.S. Capitol this week, he can't expect the cash-strapped federal government to bail California out of its budget mess. But there are steps the Bush administration and Congress could take. The federal government could grant the state more flexibility in how it spends federal funds to provide health care to the poor. It could offer states more federal aid for the cost of jailing illegal immigrants.
