Came within inches of driving that van into the back end of a gasoline tanker...

The man who wrote the music for Cabaret and Chicago , Curtains and Kiss of the Spider Woman , and more than a dozen other shows - to say nothing of "New York, New York " - leaned against the side of an upright piano in a Center City rehearsal room and broke into a smile. "Yes, yes," said John Kander, to the dozen men on folding chairs who had just finished another run-through of the song called "Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey!," which opens The Scottsboro Boys, a musical about a true travesty of American justice, about racism and anti-Semitism, hatred and hypocrisy, told in the form of a minstrel show put on by blacks with a white "interlocutor," or onstage ringmaster.

The issue in Donald Margulies' engrossing drama Time Stands Still is not whether you can come home again. The issue is whether you can stay there. In a beautifully wrought production at Delaware Theatre Company in Wilmington, the play comes off as both realistic and deeply felt by its characters. Time Stands Stil l is about a complex woman - a news photographer (Susan McKey) much more at home on a battlefield than in her real home in Brooklyn, which she shares with a writer (Kevin Kelly)

It's virtually impossible to watch Smash star Katharine McPhee on screen and not be smitten. The American Idol alumna has a way to go before she masters the intricacies of acting, but it was thrilling to see her sing and dance - and above all be sweet, heartbroken, and sweetly heartbroken - on the first season of NBC's disarming, surprisingly enjoyable, if sometimes mediocre, musical drama, which returns for its sophomore year Tuesday night...

LOS ANGELES - Gore Vidal, 86, the iconoclastic author, savvy analyst, and glorious gadfly, died Tuesday at his home in the Hollywood Hills from complications of pneumonia, his nephew Burr Steers said. Impossible to categorize, Mr. Vidal was a literary juggernaut who wrote 25 novels and volumes of essays that critics consider among the most elegant in the English language. He wrote Broadway hits, Hollywood screenplays, television dramas, and a trio of mysteries still in print after 50 years.
