If I see another theater article with Susan Dietz and Susan Loewenberg as (un)official spokespersons for the entire Los Angeles theater community, I think I'll rent Peg Yorkin's theater, vomit and have Laura Zucker analyze why attendance was so low. MARK DAVID CHESBRO Los Angeles

In "For the Love of 'Nightingale'--A Fear for Its Existence" (June 25), Susan Albert Loewenberg writes that a reviewer of a major paper--in this case she meant Sylvie Drake--can wreck many weeks of work. I wonder what Loewenberg would have had to say to Brooks Atkinson or to George Jean Nathan? I find her comment outrageous. A critic has the same conviction as the actor, actress or director. And the critic has to project his or her conviction in the review or otherwise is not a critic.

Despite protests from Los Angeles, "Bouncers" has opened in New York, to mixed-to-positive reviews. Susan Loewenberg, who brought John Godber's play across from London to the Tiffany Theatre, claims that the show's New York producer, Lou Adler, failed to get the necessary clearances from her before opening his production at off-Broadway's Minetta Lane Theatre.

Peter Sellars' thoughtful and persuasive assertion that our next task is to address multicultural arts eloquently begs the question. The real question hinges on how to turn our good intentions into fact. How do we create a cultural environment where ordinary people can buy inexpensive tickets and go to the Ahmanson to see a classic production from Spain or Mexico or a new play from Argentina, Iran or India? How do we interest people when soaps and sitcoms in their own language are readily available on videocassette or cable?

Sean O'Casey's widow, Eileen, and daughter Shivaun left town Wednesday after what they felt was a productive 10-day visit to the Southland. The attractive O'Casey ladies, who strongly resemble each other, came to see what they could do to help get a production of O'Casey's "Cock-a-Doodle Dandy" mounted in Los Angeles.
