Dame Edna Everage's pet possums from show biz were on hand for her L.A. debut at the Shubert Theatre last week. Several lingered for the post-performance fete for the international mega-star, gladiolus fiend and counselor to Royals. Her Dameship, a.k.a. actor Barry Humphries, traded her trademark wisteria wig and sequined chemise for a pink-lined black blazer for the party at the St. Regis Hotel hosted by Venice magazine.

The severed cow's tongue said it all. Mistaken for a dead fish by some and beheld at a great distance by others, the disembodied organ trembled atop a strip of white paper on the floor of the Track 16 Gallery at Bergamot Station in Santa Monica, daring onlookers to think it wasn't art. The highlight of a show by a group of UC Irvine students spoke volumes about the members of Muse and their cutting-edge curiosity about the L.A. art scene.

It's not often an audience has the mixed pleasure of seeing one of the world's great Shakespearean actors in one of L.A.'s worst neighborhoods. By night, downtown's South Spring Street is to Rodeo Drive what, as an actor, Don Johnson is to Sir Ian McKellen, who Saturday opened his one-man show, "A Knight Out in Los Angeles," at the Los Angeles Theatre Center. "People will come here," said McKellen. "What's the big deal? They come in cars."

For too long, they say, their voices have been ignored, their faces overlooked and their stories stereotyped. The creators of several new, Los Angeles-based quarterly ethnic magazines are hoping to change all that, targeting markets they say are largely untapped. Charles Squires, director of the New York-based Ethnic Magazine Coalition, notes that most new magazines fail because they are either underfinanced or poorly distributed. "To give voice to an ethnic group is . . . empowering," he says.

At a private screening and reception Wednesday at the Dodge College of Film and Media Arts at Chapman University, filmmaker Matt Tyrnauer told the audience that "lightning struck for whatever reason" when his movie "Valentino: The Last Emperor" was released in March 2009. Tyrnauer said that he would have considered success a one-week run at a small New York theater. Yet in its first week, "Valentino" out-grossed the nation's then-No. 1 movies, "Knowing" and " Monsters vs. Aliens," on a per-screen basis and is still opening in countries around the world.

Miriam Wosk, a commercial illustrator who designed the first cover of Ms. magazine and then transformed herself into a fine artist who created surreal, vibrant, mixed-media pieces, has died. She was 63. Wosk, who was diagnosed with cancer five years ago, died Friday at her Santa Monica home, said her son, Adam Gunther. At 19, she moved to New York City from her native Vancouver, Canada, to study illustration at the Fashion Institute of Technology and eventually freelanced as an artist who specialized in women's subjects.

It was hard to tell who was having more fun at the Friends of the Santa Ana Zoo's annual Zoofari gala--the zoo residents or the party animals. While more than 400 guests sipped mojitos from jungle-creature shaped containers, toured the grounds and dined under the stars, inhabitants of the 20-acre facility screeched and hollered.

Where were you when the Beatles were still together? Probably here, there and everywhere. And for one balmy evening, the Hollywood Bowl was full of people who were tempted to remember where they were in their lives when the Beatles were big. The occasion was the bowl's 78th season opening-night gala Friday, "Roll Over Beethoven--It's Beatles Music," which was a fund-raiser for the Los Angeles Philharmonic Assn.'s summer educational and community programs at the bowl.
