Local premiere of `QED' QED, a play based on the life of Nobel Prize-winning physicist Richard Feynman, makes its Baltimore premiere at Fell's Point Corner Theatre tomorrow. Under Tim Fowler's direction, Rich Espey stars as the iconoclastic professor, and Jessica Asch portrays one of his students. The play takes place in Feynman's office at the California Institute of Technology. Its title stands for both Feynman's field of quantum electrodynamics and the Latin phrase, quod erat demonstrandum ("that demonstrates it")

IF ''BACKDRAFT'' were rated on its special effects alone, it would deserve a 10. Unfortunately, a movie of this sort can travel so far on special effects, then it needs plot.Ah, but those special effects! It's amazing that anyone could stage all this for the screen. It's equally amazing that no one died during the filming.Fire is treated as something of an "other presence" in this film, and it is. Ron Howard directed, and he and his crew have managed some spectacular conflagration. This is a movie in which flames are almost beautiful.

Heist movies have become all the rage of late, and The Italian Job is one of the best. A remake of a 1969 British film (starring Michael Caine and Benny Hill) that was a huge hit there, a notorious flop here, Job fits squarely into the third, and most enjoyable, category of caper films. First, there are those where the plot is so air-tight and the intricacies so carefully mapped-out, viewers get won over by their technical virtuosity alone (think the best of David Mamet). Second, there are those where the cast is so full of stars out having a good time, you don't so much care what happens onscreen (think The Sting or, more recently, Steven Soderbergh's remake of Ocean's Eleven)

Paramount and Bernardo Bertolucci should have left bad enough alone. Paramount has restored Bertoloucci's 1975 ''1900'' to its original length, five hours and 10 minutes.When it was first shown here in 1977, the film was four hours long, three hours longer than it needed to be. Restoring that cut footage only makes matters worse.''1900'' is Bertolucci's epic telling of the more recent history of Italy. The film begins in 1900 and ends about 70 years later. The locale is Emilia, a northern province, and when the film begins, two boys have been born, one to a landowner and the other to a peasant family that helps work the land.

Mozart called the organ "The King of Instruments," and it's hard to argue with him. For a reminder of what prompted the composer's enthusiasm, consider these two programs. David Higgs, a much-traveled soloist and head of the organ department at the Eastman School of Music, will give a free recital at 3:30 p.m. today for the Community Concerts at Second series, Second Presbyterian Church, 4200 St. Paul St. Call 410-719-7357. Three more organists will collaborate on a concert at 7:30 p.m. today in Griswold Hall, Peabody Conservatory, 1 E. Mt. Vernon Place.

Ah, youth. So overrated, especially during this summer of overheated adolescent fantasies. "Space Cowboys" arrives as a balm to seared adult psyches that have endured all manner of assaults at the multiplex this season. This nifty action adventure about a posse of superannuated space explorers proves just how limited Hollywood's youth-worshiping ethos really is. Indeed, "Space Cowboys" could be read as one long metaphorical rant against the kindergarten with money that show business has become.

I often think of the places I'd like to have in music history.Imagine attending services at St. Thomas of Leipzig, with the great Bach himself pounding out on of his own fugues on the chapel organ.Or to have been in the audience as Felix Mendelssohn resurrected Bach's "St. Matthew Passion" at its first Leipzig performance since the composer's death some 80 years earlier.The-premier of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony must have been an unbelievably emotional affair as well. But one musical site I keep returning to over and over in my mind is St. Mark's Cathedral in Venice right around 1600.

Backdraft" has spectacle, it has stars, it has love, death, pain and lots of fire. But what it needed most was a final draft.The movie, covering a heroic bunch of firefighters in Chicago, seems like a jumble of scenes from a variety of unrelated "fire" projects. Some of the stories it tells don't even really touch some of the other stories.And director Ron Howard, who has been a quiet technician of high craft level and low ego level (as in "Splash" and "Parenthood"), is suddenly coming on like an auteur, filling the movie with attention-milking stylistic tropes while a truly wretched score beats you on the skull with a tambourine.
