Not even the sudden, magical, unscripted appearance of Godot himself - or maybe the Messiah, his possible alter ago - could save the lame production of Waiting for Godot that Amaryllis Theatre Company opened at the Adrienne Wednesday. I'm sure the Messiah would give it his best; it's what he does. The rest of us will have to settle for a Godot more like bad cooking than the heavenly theatrical hash Samuel Beckett created, and which debuted in 1953. In the mostly perfunctory Amaryllis version, codirected by Tom Reing and Amaryllis' producing artistic director Mimi Kenney Smith, you get all the ingredients and none of the taste.

Lower Moreland has its fourth head coach in four seasons, and Glenn Dolton is looking forward to his chance to rescue a struggling basketball program. The Lions have won just 10 games over the last three seasons, but Dolton believes that his squad, dominated by underclassmen, can overcome that recent history and reach double figures in victories during the 1991-92 campaign. The key to the turnaround, according to the former Cheltenham assistant, will be defense. "We're trying to develop good man-to-man defense," Dolton said.

Recording Handel's opera Imeneo is like recording jazz. The musical possibilities are endless and depend heavily on the performers gathered for the event. Nevertheless, the work has been recorded by an ensemble playing period instruments, led by Rudolph Palmer and sung by specialists in the baroque opera (Vox Cum Laude 2MCD 10063). Imeneo was Handel's penultimate opera, written just before his last comedy, Deidamia and eclipsed for all time by Messiah, which he completed shortly after producing Imeneo in London in 1740.

Of all the threats that our messy world faces, nuclear weaponry ranks right up there. Add anti-Semitism, and you've got a combination that should make any reasonable person recoil. No wonder human-rights activist Elie Wiesel, an otherwise soft-spoken soul, pulled no punches when describing Iran's president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, as "pathologically sick. " I wish it were that simple. Problem is, the ballistic Ahmadinejad is entirely rational from the perspective of a religious fanatic.
