Kaibutsu's latest intriguing show, conceived and directed by Ryder Thompson, is a theatrical interpretation of Sophocles' Antigone. It takes place in a beauty salon (the title, An-'tis-a-lon, is a play on words as well as on Greek names) and the audience follows the action from room to room, as Antigone and her sister Ismene finally have it out. In the ancient play (and you need to be familiar with the famous text before you go) Ismene (Macah Coates) is the shallow sister while Antigone (Chanelle Benz)

The Haverford Township Zoning Hearing Board voted 3-0 to approve the use of a building as a beauty salon Thursday night, but only with conditions designed to protect the residential neighborhood. Havertown resident Patricia J. Orose had applied to the board for a zoning change that would allow the beauty salon to operate from a home on North Eagle Road. Orose had told the board that the full-service salon would cater to chemotherapy patients and others who wore wigs. Board member Lynne Cohen said she approved of the concept.

It sounded like a good idea to the House budget-cutters: Slash $375,000 intended for renovating the House beauty salon. It wasn't. Female House members tore into the proposal as another example of what they called sexism on the Hill, pointing out in the process that taxpayers subsidize haircuts for men, but not for women. The debate this week revealed, among other things, that barbers in the House barbershop were congressional employees, paid salaries ranging from $25,300 to $40,700 a year - not counting tips - and covered by the same health and retirement benefits as regular staff.

The Warrington Township Zoning Hearing Board has approved a request by Wyn B. Shive to operate a beauty salon in her County Line Road home. At a hearing Monday night, the board voted, 2-1, to grant Shive a special exception to conduct her business in the residential neighborhood near Stump Road in Chalfont. Zoning board Chairwoman Janice DeVito voted against granting the permission.

Margaret F. Woods, a retired Philadelphia businesswoman and the kind of friend who magically appeared at your door to help when you were sick, died Thursday.

WHEN GREGORY Garcia met Kim Annette Shepherd she had to teach him that it was OK to take a vacation. Greg, a longtime postal worker, apparently enjoyed his work because he didn't like to take a break from it. Kim assured him that the sky would not fall on him if he left the job for short stretches. Kim also taught Greg how to work in her beauty salon, not exactly second nature to a manly man. In return, Greg taught Kim how to drive, and she got her driver's license. When Kim was stricken with multiple sclerosis and years of slow decline followed, Greg was there every day to care for her. He had a simple explanation for why he did it: "I loved her. " Obviously, their relationship was the epitome of quid pro quo. Kim Annette Shepherd-Garcia, whose beauty salon, Studio 13, at 13th Street and Erie Avenue, was a neighborhood asset, died Dec. 2. She was 57 and lived in Willingboro, N.J. Through her long illness, Kim never complained and never lost her enthusiasm for life.

Richard Harling has written a number of works populated mainly by female characters that show a deft understanding of his subject matter. While the "not about us without us" crowd might frown upon a man writing fairly exclusively about women, Bucks County Playhouse's engaging, star-studded production of Harling's 1987 Steel Magnolias teems with realities that transcend the localized, historical flair of this play. Steel Magnolias obliquely refers to the six women of Harling's cast, three generations of resilient Louisiana small-town wives and mothers that congregate regularly at Truvy's beauty salon.

Mary Lou Enoches was thrilled. The Chester County commissioners had just voted to condemn the licensed stylist's beauty salon for a new county office building, and she could not have been happier. "We have asked for this," she said. "They are not throwing me out. " Taking title to the salon at the corner of Market and Darlington Streets breaks a logjam that has stalled the county's plans for more than a year. "By entering into the condemnation, we can move forward with our plans and get this process moving again," Commissioners Chairwoman Karen Martynick said Monday.

Havertown resident Patricia J. Orose asked the Haverford Township Zoning Hearing Board last Thursday for a zoning change that would allow her to run a beauty salon from a home on North Eagle Road. Orose told the board that she wanted to open a wig shop and beauty salon that would allow chemotherapy patients and others who wear wigs to be fitted correctly and in privacy and to get wigs trimmed. "None of the places you can buy a wig will trim them for you," Orose said. "My main focus is to get everything in one place.

PAT NOLAN'S HOME was the scene of typical old-fashioned South Philadelphia values - dinner on the table every night, big family get-togethers, excursions to Wildwood and Atlantic City, church on Sunday. And the one ingredient that was always present was family love. It filled the rooms with warmth, good humor and laughter. The matriarch who kept the family intact and the love and goodwill flowing was Sarah Frances Nolan, known as Pat, a talented, hardworking, God-fearing woman who gave her children the foundation on which to build meaningful lives.

Others see the new apartment and retail complex on a struggling multi-block strip of Nicetown as another sign of the nascent revitalization of the neighborhood.

The 60,000-square-foot building, which features 37 apartment units, a community medical office, and a beauty salon and spa, opened in December after a year of construction.

I was examining our old piano the other day, a 1924 Sohmer that we bought when my father-in-law died and we wanted something lasting to remember him by. Through its serial number, we tracked its provenance to the piano department of Strawbridge & Clothier at 801 Market St. Why shouldn't Strawbridge's sell baby grands? It had everything else: an employee chorus and radio station. Uniformed doormen and elevator ladies. Cash boys to run between the counters and registers, which is how the venerable emporium came to hire the 13-year-old W.C. Fields.

WOMEN WHO WENT to Daisy Brewer's beauty salon got more than treatment for their hair. They also got a boost for their souls. "The added benefit to each person coming to her shop was the spiritual atmosphere that prevailed," said her daughter, Sharlyn McMillan.

" Daisy Willie Lee Brewer, who ran her beauty salon at her home on Irving Street in West Philadelphia for about 40 years, a devoted churchwoman, a world traveler and dedicated mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, died Nov. 4. She was 86. Daisy was well-known not only for her spiritual endeavors, but also for her style: She was always fashionably turned out, with hats that bordered on the spectacular.
