In Christoland, the countdown had reached Day 138. That many days remained before the flowering at Gorman of the latest gigantic environmental sculpture by the artist Christo. Toiling on it on a sunny Thursday not long ago were workers in offices, factories, classrooms, rice fields and on mountainsides. They were in Tokyo, Toronto, San Diego, Ft. Worth, Bakersfield, the German city of Bayreuth, the little Japanese town of Hitachi-ota and on the Grapevine along Interstate 5.

Will Kern drove a cab in Chicago for seven months and never got mugged. Then he came to L.A. "It was pretty weird," admits the Chicago-based playwright, who has been in town off and on to supervise the staging of "Hellcab"--his alternately poignant, scary and funny chronicle of those cab-driving adventures--at the Tamarind Theatre. Returning to his Hollywood hotel late one night, Kern was jumped by three teenagers demanding money. "I couldn't believe it was really happening," he says ruefully.

The Times Indoor Games have been canceled, for at least a year. The Los Angeles Times announced Friday that the track and field meet, which it has co-sponsored since 1960, would not be run in 1991. It had been scheduled for Feb. 14 at the Forum. "We've decided not to stage the meet this year basically because we have been unable to find a new co-sponsor and we lost our traditional Friday night date," meet director Will Kern said. "We hope to regroup and come back better than ever in 1992."

"Hellcab" at the Tamarind Theatre in Hollywood is funny, short and tight, a series of vignettes showing the passengers in a single cab on a cold Christmas Day. The unnamed cabby (Paul Dillon) who drives the mean streets of Chicago from 6 a.m. until dark looks menacing, but he is green enough to be surprised by every urban nut he encounters. His reactions to the people he sees through the rearview mirror hold the play together.

Driving a Chicago cab on a bitterly cold day during the holiday season sounds like a recipe for high stress. But stress often creates drama, and Will Kern's "Hellcab," at the Hudson Backstage, capitalizes on that fact. Kern presents a simple series of glimpses of a cabby (Loren Lazerine), his passengers and a few of his fellow drivers.
