Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has one thing right. Sacramento's annual budget drama is "all part of the Kabuki," he says. "Which means this whole song and dance.... "Everyone is beating on their chest and saying, you know, 'We are the stronger ones. We're going to stick to our policies and to our way of doing things,' and so on. And then eventually you will go and resolve some of those differences." Song and dance. Or, as I've written for years, the "Dance of Death."

If Sandy Wilson's lighter-than-air musical "The Boy Friend" is in the hands of stylists who thrive on the superficial--like Ken Russell or Tommy Tune--it's sweet, piquant and bubbly. Layered with enough glitz and glamour, "The Boy Friend" is even date-worthy. Yet produced on a shoestring, as it is in this revival at La Habra Depot Theatre, "The Boy Friend" seems silly.

NEW YORK -- To protect the Atlantic Theater Company's budget against the turbulent U.S. economy, Managing Director Andrew Hamingson has asked some board members to write donation checks earlier than they planned. The Manhattan theater that produced last year's Broadway hit "Spring Awakening" isn't having cash flow problems, but Hamingson said in a phone interview that he is being vigilant in case gifts decline in number or are delayed.

The curtain has closed on the city's Theatre Commission. In an attempt to reduce the city's annual subsidy to the La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts, about $500,000 after the 1993-94 season, the City Council recently dissolved the five-member advisory committee. The council meets weekly and can handle theater business in a more timely fashion than did the commission, which met once a month, City Manager Gary Sloan said.

City staff members will help raise corporate funds for the program, he said.

A cynic might note that Bernard Slade is trying to inoculate himself against criticism of his three-act "Romantic Comedy" by dramatizing how difficult it is to write a funny play. If it's this tough, then please, cut the poor man some slack. Watching the 1983 Arthur Hiller-Dudley Moore film version, this cynic certainly felt that this was Slade's game, a distraction, perhaps, from the thin goods on screen.

Ventura College's extensive costume collection, which at 50,000 garments eclipses that of the prestigious drama school at Yale University, is slowly falling victim to moths, dust, age, neglect and a slashed theater budget, drama instructors say. "It's a valuable collection, but it's in danger because there are no funds and personnel to look after it," said Edward Barron, who heads the college's performing arts department.

The Garden Grove City Council failed to approve the Grove Theatre Company's funding request Wednesday night after a series of confusing motions. The council also rejected a proposal to place the future of the company's Shakespeare Festival before the city's voters in November. The five-member council also refused the only other funding request by a Garden Grove arts group in rejecting a $20,000 subsidy for the Garden Grove Symphony.

After three decades of perfectly conventional behavior, the city of Thousand Oaks may soon leap into show biz. The glittery world of Hollywood and Broadway may seem impossibly distant from the city bureaucracy's daily routine. After all, how do operatic trills and choreographed frills fit in with the mundane chores of paving roads and treating sewage? But with the Civic Arts Plaza's grand opening just six months away, theater boosters think Thousand Oaks is ready for the big time.
