Now in its fifth incarnation, Pasadena Theatre Company's It's a Wonderful Life has become a local holiday tradition. Although the location might change from year to year, the company's president, Sharon Steele, who has directed every production of the show, says there are reasons for the show's enduring popularity with audiences - and with performers. "The reason the cast and audience members return year after year, either to perform or to see the show, is because each year reaffirms their beliefs in the value of their own lives as well as the lives of their friends and loved ones," Steele said.

"Wicked" strikes many a chord, and not just during its catchy songs. It also speaks to issues of prejudice and intolerance. "Outsiders tend to get bullied," said the musical's producer, Marc Platt. "And Elphaba" - aka the Wicked Witch of the West - "is the quintessential outsider. She's bullied onstage. When bullying became part of the national conversation a few years ago, we allowed the show and its characters to be involved. " Cast members have made videos for the "It Gets Better" campaign.

Given that MTV's "The Real World," which begins its seventh season tonight, is advertised as the "true story" of its seven strangers, a memoir of the experience may seem redundant.But in "Livin' In Joe's World," the first memoir written by a former cast member, Joe Patane has taken a shot at it.Patane, a member of "The Real World's" Miami cast two years ago, has crafted an unlikely amalgam, a kind of "1984" meets "The Road Less Traveled." In the end, his book reveals more about the short, business-minded mensch with the Amazon girlfriend than it does about the show.

Cast members from 1993's "A Bronx Tale" will reunite with Chazz Palminteri at Chazz: A Bronx Original on Monday night for a special fundraising happy hour.

Almost 20 years later, Palminteri's love affair with his native borough would in part inspire the Inner Harbor restaurant that bears his name. Guests at Monday's happy hour will meet cast members from the movie, along with other Baltimore celebrities and sports figures who are helping the restaurant launch a new charitable fundraising campaign for the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation.

Even if they end up being a villain, we always have love for Baltimore folks on reality shows. So far on "The Real World: St. Thomas," Dundalk native Trey Weatherholtz, 23, is far from a villain. He reminds us of that popular guy in high school who also happened to be really nice to all the cliques. So we felt (slightly) bad for asking him these semi-inappropriate questions. You're from Dundalk. What's the grandest showcase of Dundalkian pride we should expect from you this season?

MTV is airing its fist-pumping-gone-Italian Season 4 of “Jersey Shore.” The most logical question is: Who on the show do you relate to the most?  Pauly. For saying “I'm not from around here,” when explaining why he couldn't unclog a toilet. I, too, make up pathetic excuses to get out of housework.  -   Luke Broadwater, managing editor,  b Danny, the Shore Store boss, because he actually got to fire Angelina, the most annoying of this overcooked, idiotic tribe.  -   Anne Tallent, editor,   b The duck phone because I'm hard to figure out.  -   Wesley Case, reporter,   b The grenade horn.  -   Jordan Bartel, assistant editor,   b I'll go with Ronnie's Dad. Cop mustache and crisp tan ... me in a nutshell.  -   Molly McLaughlin, intern,   b None of them!

We haven't seen any snow yet and very little frost so far this season, but it's time to think cool thoughts. The latest version of the Talent Machine Company's annual variety show, "Frosty Follies 2001," should help. An established Anne Arundel County holiday tradition, the show features a large cast of talented 6- to 17-year-olds performing holidays songs and dances. But for only the second time in its history, the Talent Machine will run without founder and director Bobbi Smith, who died in January.

Baltimore is about to have a situation on its hands. Not just any situation. The Situation. The Situation is the nickname for one of the stars of MTV's infamous new reality TV show, "Jersey Shore." The 27-year-old from Staten Island has a real name - Mike Sorrentino - but that's inconsequential. What matters is, The Situation has six-pack abs so well-defined that he calls them "the situation" (hence, the nickname). Every opportunity he gets - at work, on magazine covers, on the dance floor - he lifts his shirt to show them off. Like the other guys on "Jersey Shore," The Situation is a self-declared guido's guido - with carefully gelled hair, perma-tanned skin and alpha-male attitude.
