As the daughter of composer Friedrich Hollander, whose songs are in both "Cabaret Verboten" and "Frauleins in Underwear," I strongly disagree with Sylvie Drake's review ("German Cabaret, American Attitude," Aug. 10). I attended opening night of "Cabaret Verboten" with my father's second wife, Hedi Schoop, who was a featured performer in his Berlin Tingle Tangle Theatre from 1929 to 1933, and we were both very enthusiastic about the production. Drake calls "Cabaret Verboten" laid-back and shapeless, yet I found it to be just the opposite.

She was not bemused. Queen Elizabeth, whose life is defined by royal protocol, didn't appear to flinch when Michelle Obama seemed to depart from it. Thursday's papers in Britain delighted in a grainy photo from a gathering Wednesday at Buckingham Palace showing the American first lady with her arm around the queen. Touching the royal person is normally a no-no. When former Australian Prime Minister Paul Keating did it, in 1992, the obstreperous British press dubbed him the "Lizard of Oz."

Of all the ancillary pieces inspired by the presence of the Degenerate Art exhibit at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, one of the best and briefest opened at the Itchey Foot Ristorante over the weekend as part of the Mark Taper Forum's Literary Cabaret. "Cabaret Verboten," with its four oddly trussed-up performers, its tainted tone, its eerie-descence, scornful lyrics and rousing German music drips in Weimar Republic decadence.

Video game heroine Lara Croft is an adrenaline junkie unafraid of getting bloody. But in Germany, the buxom starlet of the "Tomb Raider" series doesn't bleed -- even if she's being mauled by a tiger. Although the $25-billion video game industry is global, the games themselves aren't. They reflect the distinct cultures and traditions of different markets, and game publishers carefully tweak their titles to tone down offensive material.

Smack-dab in the middle of muted Newbury Park sits a proud pocket of pigment in the otherwise taupe, tawny, tan and terra-cotta tile-roofed Conejo Valley. Surrounded by the city of Thousand Oaks--which has the most stringent design and color guidelines for homes in Ventura County--the residents of the Casa Conejo neighborhood defiantly splash their homes in fruit-salad brights: deep lime, juicy melon, tangy grape green and cheery lemon. Not to mention the occasional teal, sky blue and rose.

It's unusual for two shows to show up in town dealing with between-the-wars German cabaret. The first, "Frauleins in Underwear," at the Odyssey Theatre Ensemble, is a brand-new show; the second, "Cabaret Verboten" at Theatre Geo, is an expansion of an older one. If one had not seen the earlier, short version of "Verboten" at the Itchey Foot Ristorante in April, 1991, dripping in decadence and menace, it might have been more difficult to identify what's missing in this new go-around.

When most people see a list of the recordings in an upcoming four-CD boxed set from DCC Compact Classics, they'll probably assume they're holding a collection of some of the most celebrated music in American pop history. And they will be. The titles include Judy Garland's "Over the Rainbow," Duke Ellington's "Satin Doll," Doris Day's "Secret Love," Lou Reed's "Walk on the Wild Side" and Sister Sledge's "We Are Family."

For the last two months, the aging Wang Daohan, China's lead sage on the perpetually sticky Taiwan issue, a well-known proponent of a peaceful solution, and someone whom the U.S. government regards as a notable policy moderate, has been resting in a quiet hospital room.

German businessman Karl Dersch learned the hard way about the power of symbols in a country tormented by right-wing extremism. An avid collector of military memorabilia, the prominent aerospace executive often displayed a World War I naval flag outside his suburban Munich home. But just days after a photograph of Dersch's garden--and his battle flag--appeared in a national news magazine, Dersch was out of a job.

They are on the short wish list of many youngsters eager to hit the road on something more than a pedal-powered bicycle: motorized scooters or Go-peds. But these motorized two-wheelers are also in the law enforcement list of dangerous vehicles. Officials hope to improve safety with a new law that took effect Jan. 1, the first regulations governing such scooters. Under the law, riders of motorized scooters, including Go-peds, must be 16 years or older.
