Neil Simon's "Brighton Beach Memoirs" opens the 55th season for Prince George's Little Theatre, and the production at Bowie Playhouse qualifies as the troupe's strongest start in recent memory. This is inspired theater by every measure, starting with the choice of the largely autobiographical 1968 work by Simon, which traces his adolescent years, to begin what became known as his Eugene Trilogy. Perhaps because of frequent stagings of "The Odd Couple" and other favorites at regional theaters, Simon is sometimes dismissed as a master of the one-liner but lacking in substance.

BRIGHTON, England - Janet Parsons may have one of the United Kingdom's toughest jobs, which is saying quite a lot about the state of the country's coastal resorts. Her job: not just to attract visitors to Brighton, a "London-By-The-Sea," as it is marketed, but to get them here to soak in its culture, to appreciate a city once populated by the likes of authors Lewis Carroll and Jane Austen, and lent a regal air by the playboy king, George IV. Only problem is, while Brighton has a healthy arts scene and culture can be found, the city is dominated by teen-age kids experimenting with their first pints of ale and twenty-something revelers well into advanced research of the same refreshment, proving it by emptying themselves in business doorways and passing out in the city's alleys.

Witches hanging from tall trees. Jack-o'-lanterns leering from porches. A sign amid a swirl of leaves that reads "Ghoulish Greetings." It's getting spooky along Lakeside Drive, a leafy lane that climbs a gentle slope in a rural part of Howard County. But one house near the top of the hill is noticeably decoration-free. For the family that lives there, the past four years have been, they claim, nightmarish enough. Seventeen years ago, James and Linda Rhee bought the two-story home with the stately white columns in the Brighton Pines subdivision.

The discovery of a discolored and worn-thin penny rarely generates enthusiasm, unless the discoverer is digging into history and the coin provides insight into the life of another era. Brianne Reynolds, an anthropology student at the University of Maryland, College Park, found the 1891 penny while sifting through what remains of an Irish-American enclave in Baltimore County just north of Timonium. "It's greenish so it stuck out in the red clay," Reynolds said. "It's definitely in the right period.

Richard Attenborough will scare the bejesus out of you in "Brighton Rock. " Screening this week in a new print at the Charles, this film from 1947 comes off as cutting-edge as the Millennium thrillers. That's not just because the antihero's favorite weapon is a straight razor. The film brings metaphoric dimensions to mob tensions that rival those in Martin Scorsese's "Mean Streets. " And director John Boulting captures a rarely seen England — brash and vulgar — that's at once seedy and fresh.

Food **1/2 (2 1/2 stars) Service **1/2 (2 1/2 stars) Atmosphere *** (3 stars) Some restaurants can charge almost anything for their food and I won't complain. Brightons isn't one of them. Once Brightons was what I thought of as the most beautiful hotel coffee shop in the world. It was the place that served breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea, while Harbor Court's main restaurant, the luxe Hampton's, was where you went for very fine dining.
