Now onstage in area productions, “A Chorus Line” and “The Who’s Tommy” are very different musical theater experiences, but there are similarities in the two shows. Both capture the moment in which they were created, and each has been made into a film. Set in 1975, “A Chorus Line” appears at the Ahmanson Theatre at the Music Center in downtown Los Angeles. The play tells the stories of 17 dancers trying to make the cut for a Broadway chorus line.

L ast week was a bonanza for musical theater aficionados with the opening of two major Broadway revivals. On Tuesday night, "A Chorus Line" opened to a sold-out crowd at Hollywood's historic Pantages Theatre. Rogers and Hammerstein's endearing musical "South Pacific" opened at the Ahmanson Theatre on Wednesday night to an equally packed and wildly enthusiastic house. "A Chorus Line," which opened on Broadway in 1975 and has won nine Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize for drama, has not lost its magnetic attraction and is as compelling and fresh as when it first opened.

It is hearts and flowers day on Saturday — Happy Valentine’s Day! It seems that we are going to catch up with our rainfall numbers. The rain certainly has been falling and falling. On Monday afternoon it hailed like crazy at my house. Lola, my little dog, had just gone outside to take a stroll when she was being pelted by the little balls of ice. She couldn’t quite figure out what it was and came running pell-mell into the house again with a very frightened look on her face.
