"Manna From Heaven" has much warmth, an array of veteran players, some in roles of substance and dimension, and outstanding Buffalo, N.Y., locations, but it suffers from an overcomplicated plot, an overpopulated cast, a lot of corny humor and artificial contrivance, topped by a sluggish pace. Filmmaking sisters Gabrielle C. and Maria Burton should have taken a hard look at the busy, murkily plotted script by their mother, Gabrielle B. Burton.

The Itchey Foot restaurant is a hospitable venue for the five-woman musical revue "A . . . My Name Is Alice." A production of "Alice" has moved there following a successful run at Theatre 6470 in Hollywood. This spirited but hardly incisive show fits the Itchey Foot better than much of the weightier material that has been seen there.

The Burtons "In any small business, people find a family to work with," says Ursula Burton, who has been featured on "The Office. " The Burtons have established a unique way of working together. They pool their money, and sisters draw on it as needed. Jennifer Burton, with a PhD. from Harvard, serves as the company chief financial officer. They share producing credit on every project but take turns writing, directing and acting. "They seem to almost be Siamese in that they were always joined at the hip," says Wendie Malick, costar of TV Land's "Hot in Cleveland.

In a handsome revival, "The Hemingway/Dos Passos Wars" ironically depicts the toll of ideological conformity among prominent symbols of independence and rebellion--the left-wing intellectuals and writers of the 1930s. Ben Pleasants' literate cautionary drama uses the disintegrating friendship between John Dos Passos and Ernest Hemingway as a study in egoism and hypocrisy set against the moral litmus test of the Spanish Civil War.

WHERE preservationists might shriek, Bill Morrison sees a strangely rapturous alternative cinema narrative. Degenerating archival film has long been a source of temporally bewitching beauty for the Chicago-born filmmaker -- perhaps best known among the art-house set for his 2002 feature-length study "Decasia" -- and Los Angeles is fortunate to have a pair of programs of his short work in local venues over the next two weeks, with Morrison present at both.
