I am so saddened about to read that the Piccadilly Circus is coming to Howard County ("Piccadilly Circus coming to county fairgrounds," April 5). Not only that, this article provided them with free advertising. Circus animals suffer inordinately in these venues. Please do not support any circuses that use animals. Instead enjoy the wonderful Big Apple Circus or others like it. This will teach compassion and civility to our children and others. Choosing Civility would only lead to the choice of not attending/supporting circuses such as Piccadilly, Ringling, etc. Barbara Glick Columbia

Although there's a lot of clowning around at Towson State University, there's no need to become alarmed about declining academic standards. This is officially sanctioned funny business.Clowns, jugglers, mimes and all sorts of other movement-theater folks are converging on TSU for the sixth annual Mid-Atlantic Movement Theatre Festival, running through Sunday. Kicking off the exquisitely choreographed silliness is the one-ring, San Francisco-based New Pickle Family Circus. It'll perform a movie spoof titled "Jump Cuts!"

One show is out and two more are in at the Lyric Opera House. Out is "Oops! The Big Apple Circus Stage Show," which appears to be more appropriately named than its creators might have imagined. In are David E. Talbert's "His Woman His Wife" (April 4-9), starring Stephanie Mills, and "The Music of Andrew Lloyd Webber" (June 13-18), with Michael Bolton. "Oops!" which was to have played a one-week run at the Lyric beginning Tuesday, canceled its Baltimore engagement due to weak ticket sales, according to Renee Miller Mutchnik, marketing director of Performing Arts Productions, which books stage shows at the Lyric.

Huge red roses hung from crimson swagging over the Lyric Opera House lobby -- a visual confirmation of the warm, rosy mood of the party below. Some 230 friends and supporters had gathered for "A Farewell and Thank You -- Retirement Celebration for University of Baltimore President H. Mebane Turner." "They broke the mold after him," said guest Harry Bosk, Bosk Communications president, as he summed up the evening's emotional theme. "You know, Meb was known as the 'Mogul of Mount Royal,' " Bosk noted of Turner's 33 years as UB president, "because he believed one way to develop a presence in Baltimore was through bricks and mortar, as well as offering good education."

One of the brightest times to visit New York is during the holiday season. Not only is the city dressed in its best, and at its brightest, but you'll also find some great buys in lodging. From mid-December through January, most hotels have deals that are hard to resist.The second Sunday in December traditionally is the day to discover Fifth Avenue. On that day, traffic is banned and shoppers have the avenue to themselves. From 34th to 57th streets, the avenue will have lots of sales, as well as entertainment from singers to jugglers.
