Rob Morrow co-wrote, directed and stars in "Maze," and the appeal of the do-it-yourself project is obvious. Morrow plays the title character, Lyle Maze, an artist with Tourette's syndrome and obsessive-compulsive disorder, conditions that give the actor plenty of opportunities to do some showy work. In fact, Morrow the writer makes sure that Morrow the actor has so many chances to chew up scenery that it's a little hard sometimes to get past the vanity nature of the project. What makes "Maze" sweetly palatable is that Morrow landed actress Laura Linney to play the woman at the center of the movie's love triangle.

A decorous, respectable adaptation of Sara Gruen's engaging bestseller, "Water for Elephants" would have come more excitingly alive with stronger doses of Depression-era grit and sexual spunk. The 1931 circus setting and a love triangle involving three exceedingly attractive people provides a constant wash of scenic pleasure and the film's fidelity to its source will receive nodding approval from the book's many fans, which should result in solid, if unspectacular commercial results for this Fox release.

Q: I am a 22-year-old college graduate with big dreams. My only problem is this love triangle I have put myself in for the past five years. At the age of 15 I met this young girl who was clean, smart, beyond beautiful, trustworthy – and to top it off, I was her first sex partner. We spent a lot of time together during my teenage years and I started to get bored with her. I put her through a lot of hurt and BS, but she still stood by my side. At age 17, I met another very pretty girl.

Menage, a saucy comedy of sexual manners, laces its laughs with bitter jokes and pungent wit. Written and directed by Bertrand Blier, whose Oscar-winning Get Out Your Handkerchiefs (1978) was about a dissatisfied wife in love with a 12-year-old boy, Menage features an equally unhappily married woman. Shrewish Monique, disgusted with her spineless, jobless mouse of a husband, Antoine, sells him for the price of a bath and a new silk slip. The buyer is an oxlike hustler named Bob. Bob adores Antoine, who is smitten with Monique, who has the hots for, you guessed it, Bob. As far as love triangles go, and this one goes the limit, Menage combines the breathless mirth of Noel Coward's Design for Living with the heavy-breathing farce of Billy Wilder's Some Like It Hot. Its difference - and Blier's triumph - is that it does not play its love triangle merely for laughs.

What's an audience to do when asked to care about characters who offer no reason to give them a second thought? That's the question raised by The Credeaux Canvas , Keith Bunin's play about an amoral young man, his girlfriend, his roommate - an unfathomable, hermitlike art student - and the rich woman they try to swindle. Theatre Horizon is staging the play at the Centre Theater in Norristown, where it's one of the relatively few suburban events included in the Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts.

One of the mantras of the musical theater work The Mystery of Love has to do with the bandstand. The members of a hard-working rhythm-and-blues band regard the bandstand as a mythological place, where "dreamers come to project their dreams. " Lead singer Shine (an understated, fine portrayal by Robert Tyree) and singer/manager Maceo (Ramon Melindez Moses) believe in the transformations that occur there: When they tell each other "anything can happen on the bandstand," they mean it in the most positive, musical sense.

BROWNSVILLE, PA. - A 35-year-old western Pennsylvania man has been charged in the fatal beating of a 75-year-old man allegedly stemming from a love triangle involving the younger man's 20-something girlfriend. Jonathan Godines, of Brownsville, was originally charged with aggravated assault and lesser charges in the Nov. 15 beating of John Eicholtz.

Authorities on Wednesday filed a new set of charges, including criminal homicide, based on autopsy results that linked Eicholtz's fatal brain hemorrhage to the assault.

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday threw out the conviction of a Lansdale woman who tried to poison a romantic rival, ruling unanimously that federal prosecutors in Philadelphia overreacted by charging her under antiterrorism law. Though her lawyers called the decision a victory, it came too late for Carol Anne Bond, 42, who served six years in federal prison after pleading guilty to chemical weapons charges in 2007. In an opinion dripping with sarcasm, Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. chided prosecutors in Philadelphia for equating "an amateur attempt by a jilted wife to injure her husband's lover" with an attack prohibited under a 1997 treaty banning chemical weapons.

Mike Cahill's debut feature, Another Earth , showed with much grace and visual splendor that the most fantastical, grand sci-fi tropes - say, the sudden appearance of a parallel universe in our own - could be metaphors for much more intimate aspects of the human condition. Cahill, who won a Sundance special jury prize for the 2011 film, this time delivers a dose of science fact with his follow-up, I Origins , opening Friday, an arresting piece that touches on religion, evolution, reincarnation, and the nature of the human soul.

DEFENSE ATTORNEY A. Charles Peruto Jr. yesterday accused District Attorney Seth Williams of investigating state Rep. J.P. Miranda and charging him with a crime because they "were both dating the same girl at the same time. " A spokeswoman for Williams called that claim "ludicrous. " Peruto spoke after a preliminary hearing, in which Municipal Court Judge David Shuter held for trial three felonies filed on Jan. 27 against Miranda and his sister, Michelle Wilson. They are accused of using a "ghost employee" to funnel state payroll money to Wilson after Miranda was told he could not hire her to serve on his staff.

"DON JON" is a love triangle for the online generation - a three-way involving a girl, a guy and his pornography. Porn we meet first, because it's the guy's first love. Joseph Gordon-Levitt (who directs) plays Jon, a North Jersey ladies man who's successful at seducing women but generally finds them inferior to the virtual and infallible women of pornography. The movie's extended prologue shows Jon bedding one lovely lady after another, while his jaded voiceover tells us that these encounters leave something to be desired.

WAS SUNDAY night news night around the TV set for the Gallagher clan when John Jr. was growing up in Wilmington? Maybe not then, but it probably is now. This Sunday night marks the second-season premiere of HBO's drama "The Newsroom," in which Gallagher portrays the cable-news show's senior producer, James Harper. As a kid, the now-29-year-old actor recalled recently, it wasn't so much TV news that impressed him. He preferred the weather, as forecast by a popular Channel 10 meteorologist.

Max Irons and Jake Abel are chasing each other up and down a hallway at the Ritz-Carlton in Center City while Stephenie Meyer looks on with a maternal smile. They're blowing off steam after a solid block of media appearances to promote their new film, The Host , an adaptation of Meyer's 2008 best-seller. The film, Meyer's follow-up to the blockbuster Twilight series, opens Friday. The actors - either of whom could give Robert Pattinson a run for his money as a movie heartthrob - form two sides of a very peculiar love triangle (or perhaps more accurately a love rectangle)

Love and honor. That's what Kenneth W. Smith Jr., a Northeast Philadelphia pizza cook, says prompted him to phone in a bogus tip that his girlfriend's ex-boyfriend was carrying explosives on an outbound plane from Philadelphia last September. Smith, 26, pleaded guilty Monday to making false reports about the plane threat, charges that could send him to prison for 12 to 18 months. U.S. District Judge Gene E. K. Pratter scheduled sentencing for April 16. The Sept. 6 hoax caused authorities to call back a Dallas-bound US Airways plane that had reached Harrisburg, and sent agents and rescue personnel scurrying onto the tarmac.

DEAR ABBY: I am a 31-year-old, never-married mother of two. Last summer, I started having an affair with "Jordan," the father of my first child. He left me when our daughter was a year old and has been engaged for three years in an on-again, off-again relationship. Today I found out from Jordan's fiancée that they have set their wedding date for next spring. She said they would like for me to come. As if it wouldn't be painful enough to go to the wedding, his fiancée has also asked me to do her hair for the occasion.
