When the show, based on the 1988 movie of the same name, opens Thursday at New York's Imperial Theatre , its $11 million budget will include $1.3 million raised by Lipitz, one of the youngest co-producers on Broadway.

The fate of Baltimore's ailing convention and tourism trade was entrusted last week to a woman with a scant history of promoting cities or landing conventions. She is a newcomer to Baltimore, a stranger to crab cakes and parking zones and sirens on Mondays. Yet, the selection of former U.S. Commerce Department official Leslie R. Doggett as the next president of the Baltimore Area Convention and Visitors Association was almost universally hailed as a strong step forward for the battered agency.

CINCINNATI - Their brief ritual seemed straight from a James Bond novel. The American, speaking first, would say in Latin, "Vincit qui se vincit." (He conquers who conquers himself.) The European man, code-named Dynamo, would reply, "Verbum pat sapienti." (A word is enough for a wise man.) Then they would match halves of a torn playing card, the nine of diamonds. While this scene may have been common during the Cold War, Dynamo was no common spy. Documents unsealed in a case recently settled in Cincinnati federal court reveal that the man called Dynamo was paid to spy for the U.S. government - even though intelligence reports showed that he was considered a Nazi war criminal in Yugoslavia.
