In "Dragonfly," a souped-up romantic tale of longing for contact beyond the grave, we're told that the Doctors Darrow (Kevin Costner and Susanna Thompson) are the perfect team--he has the head and she supplies the heart. Both work at the same Chicago hospital--he runs the emergency room, and she's a pediatric oncologist. Listening to her heart, she takes off for Venezuela on a mission of mercy despite being pregnant only to be aboard a bus caught in a landslide.

"I Won't Dance" at the Gaslamp Quarter Theatre offers three plays in one: a murder mystery, a serious drama about responsibility for oneself and others, and a colorful colloquy of one-liners. The production has an intriguing story line with some strong performances, a lovingly detailed set and a steady patter of good jokes, mostly at L.A.'s expense.

The play opens with an architect and his wife arguing about the wife's supposed infidelities. Of course, since Tom Stoppard plays are usually not what they initially appear to be, it shouldn't surprise anyone to discover a few twists.

By the end of Sunday's TBS remake of the classic 1952 western "High Noon," however, you definitely have that forsaken feeling. Not that any film or story is off limits to fresh eyes.
