New Steps for Madonna: Madonna has named a new choreographer for her spring concert tour, replacing New York pal Karole Armitage with L.A.-based Vincent Paterson, who designed Madonna's moves for a controversial Pepsi commercial last year. Madonna's publicist, Liz Rosenberg, said Armitage was "initially hired as consultant," not as a choreographer. In an interview with The Times last month, Armitage identified herself as the sole choreographer for the tour to begin in April in Japan.

Theodor Geisel, better known to millions as Dr. Seuss, was a unique artist, a comic genius whose signature drawings and rhythmic language reflected a deeply felt social conscience. "In Search of Dr. Seuss," a delightfully quirky, celebrity-studded mix of documentary and family entertainment airing Sunday on TNT, captures the life and art of the man who found his inspiration and his sense of humor by "looking at life through the wrong end of the telescope." The show, written by Keith R.

IT'S the 1950s -- but like no decade you've ever seen before. Susan Hilferty, costume designer for "Manon," says she and director / choreographer Vincent Paterson updated Jules Massenet's 1884 opera because the progression of fashion in the '50s parallels Manon's transformation from innocent gamine to jaded socialite. But the designer, winner of a 2004 Tony Award for "Wicked," says the opera's 400-plus costumes represent the "dream '50s," a deliberately heightened reality.
