She heard the flutter of programs and the audience murmuring, but even when the stage lights clicked on, Maya Redfearn saw nothing. No shadows, no silhouettes. Blindness is like that, a velvet curtain that never rises. And yet, alone on stage one night a week ago, Maya knew it was nearly time to begin. She could feel the eyes on her, hundreds of them. Her family was there. So were church friends and a few former classmates who still live in the Baltimore area. Everyone was wondering what she would do with this, her first public performance without sight.

THE QUESTION The buzz- and glamour-rich Dreamgirls opened on Christmas to rave reviews and a strong box-office performance. What Oscar nominations -- if any -- do you think it should get? WHAT YOU SAY I found Dreamgirls very enjoyable and believe it will win quite a few awards. However as good as Jennifer Hudson was at portraying Effie, Jennifer Holliday [who portrayed her on Broadway] was and still is Effie. Hudson was fine on her own but if you compare, I'll take Holliday. But that should not take away from her fine performance.

To increase anticipation even more, the production company, DreamWorks, is picking up the licensing fees for amateur productions mounted this year. Taking advantage of this, Winters Lane Productions has staged an ambitious, large-scale production in its new home on the Catonsville campus of the Community College of Baltimore County. And though the gutsy company falls short in some minor respects (trying too hard on the costumes and not hard enough on the set)
