The Baltimore Zoo announced yesterday its most blessed event of the year -- the birth of a pair of endangered Siberian tiger cubs.Watched over by an infrared video camera, mother Alisa gave birth to the 4-pound pair, gender as yet undetermined, between 3:15 p.m. and 4:45 p.m. Sunday in a bed of straw placed strategically in her den by keepers. A third cub, a female, was stillborn.Alisa was sent here in late winter by the International Wildlife Conservation Park (formerly the Bronx Zoo) on a long-term breeding loan -- chosen along with the Baltimore Zoo's male Fasier as the nation's most genetically desirable pair of captive, prospective Siberian tiger parents.

Early in Robert Leland Taylor's "Billy Would've Been 30 Today," the character of Gladys displays a painting she commissioned depicting how her son Billy, who died at age 5, would look today, 25 years later.But this Baltimore Playwrights Festival entry is less about a little boy denied the chance to grow up than it is about how his death has stunted the growth of his family.Yes, this is yet another example of the tried-and-true American theatrical genre of the dysfunctional family. But Taylor's writing -- combined with TraceyAnn Tokar Smith's direction -- is sensitive enough to make this a memorable production.

Hollywood can't touch this Baltimore soap opera -- a love triangle, of sorts, in which the guy and two gals in the melodrama were chosen for their roles by matchmakers.The cast features the sleek, amber-eyed Alisa, a Russian-born mother of two brought here from New York to have a relationship with the exotic Fasier.Unfortunately, this left the equally lovely but moody Roxanne out in the cold -- forced to leave Fasier, her companion since birth, just as they were coming of age.Oh, did we mention that the players are Siberian tigers?
