The natural beauty of Japan, Italy, England and France is now no farther away than Thousand Oaks. After 18 months of construction, the $7-million Gardens of the World will open its gates today. The 4.5-acre public garden includes flowers and plants from Europe, Asia and North America as well as a bandstand and a plaza reminiscent of the California missions.

Classic baggy-pants burlesque comedy may be virtually dead, with the supply of aging practitioners diminishing rapidly. It's a relief to fans of the ancient art, then, that "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum" exists, and that even (relatively) young actors are able to rise--or lower themselves--to the occasion.
