There are precious few guarantees in the theater anymore. Boffo playwrights went out with the Neil Simon dinosaurs. A new show by Stephen Sondheim, hands down the greatest living musical theater composer, can't even count on a Broadway booking. The only thing producers can bank on are stars. Celebrities still sell, which is why so many of them are working these days on the Great White Way.

OSCAR WILDE'S "Salome" is a strange play. Just how strange? It's lured the great Al Pacino to take on the part of Herod, king of Judea -- as though he were channeling Jerry Lewis. Evidently it's a choice. Pacino has been working on the one-act for a number of years with his director, Estelle Parsons.

THERE'S the "Salome" everybody is talking about -- you know, the production of the Oscar Wilde play that will open Thursday at the Wadsworth Theatre, starring Al Pacino and directed by Estelle Parsons. It's a staged reading, duplicating a 2003 Broadway production that was developed at the august Actors Studio in New York. Then there's the other "Salome" -- not by Wilde, but definitely something of a theatrical wild card.
