Steven Weber is changing. Sure, he's still the same easygoing, lovable quipster Brian Hackett on NBC's "Wings" (making its season premiere Thursday). But last summer, movie audiences also saw a darker side of Weber, as Bridget Fonda's philandering fiance in the hit thriller "Single White Female." And come November, Weber gets really dark, playing real-life California serial killer Jon Dunkle in the CBS-TV movie "In the Company of Darkness."

As a kid, Steven Weber was surrounded by them: comedians, dropping by the house to see his talent-agent father, Stuey, or backstage visits to the New York clubs where Stuey's clients played. For a kid, it was heaven. "It was all very enthralling to me--like if you've ever met gangsters," Weber says. "When I was young, my father had a comic who opened for Sinatra. I met all these guys--the nicest people, funny and tough. They were all like Humphrey Bogart, very attractive."

After murdering her children in Euripides' classic "Medea," Annette Bening, with husband Warren Beatty, helped celebrate the launch of UCLA Live's Eighth International Theatre Festival at the play's opening-night party. No matter that the play is nearly 2,500 years old, Claudia Weill said, "the same issues are with us," including "disposability of women." Alan Schwartz, president of the Royce Center Circle, which supports UCLA's performing arts, said that although the university has presented plays for eight years, "Medea" was the first original production to be created by the UCLA Live series.

Its success turned it into something it claimed to despise: a mainstream American commodity, a brand name like IBM, but smaller. And with hippies. Now, enough time and psychic distance has passed since 1967 to make it work as nostalgia. "Hair" is back, with a bang, with a bong, with a fetchingly nostalgic plea for tolerance and peace--and, crucially, with a wealth of high-grade Broadway pop. Continuing through Sunday, this concert-style presentation of Reprise!
