Although no longer revolutionary, Stephen Schwartz's dark 1972 episodic musical "Pippin" continues to surprise and intrigue. In a production by 2nd Star in Bowie, the spirit of the show's director/choreographer Bob Fosse again seduces us, the dancers' sharp moves synchronized to Schwartz's catchy folk-pop-rock score. "Pippin" is the story of a naïve young prince's search for meaning and fulfillment in life. Pippin's racy grandmother encourages him to savor a series of fleshly encounters, and the amoral Leading Player guides him to battlefield competitions, sensual pleasures and, ultimately, patricide — as Pippin briefly becomes king by killing his father, Charlemagne.

Jim Poole should have reported to spring training yesterday.He should have been throwing soft tosses off the mound, covering first base and running in the outfield. Instead, Poole testified yesterday before the State Senate Finance Committee in support of two bills designed to keep replacement games out of Camden Yards."I can't say I'm very comfortable," Poole, dressed in a gray suit and a Nicole Miller baseball tie, told the committee. "This is not the uniform I'm usually wearing on this date."

Annapolis Summer Garden's season opener, "Chicago," gets just about everything so right that it would please the ghost of choreographer Bob Fosse, to whose memory debuting director and choreographer Taavon Gamble dedicates this production. The production's success is largely attributable to Gamble's smart sense of style, evident in the stark black background set and simple black costumes that enhance his dynamic choreography. Also evident in every scene is the meticulous care Gamble gives all aspects of this Kander and Ebb musical that reveals the corruption of 1920s Chicago's criminal justice system through its heroines, who are based on actual women reported on in Chicago newspapers.

Tickets to Orioles games cost more. Nevertheless, the team apparently is selling more of them.According to Joe Foss, the club's chief financial officer, overall ticket sales have jumped more than 10 percent. What the increased sales demonstrate, Foss said, is that "fans respect the position we took on raising prices."The bickering over baseball's new labor agreement and the subsequent delay in finalizing the interleague schedule delayed the sale of Orioles' 1997 tickets by about two months, Foss said.

Joe Foss, the Orioles' vice chairman of business and finance, yesterday urged season-ticket holders not using their tickets to sell the unused tickets to local Orioles fans.Foss said the large number of Yankees fans that helped fill Camden Yards during the four-game series with New York did not buy their tickets in large blocks from the Orioles."Based on the location of so many of the Yankees fans, [the tickets] are obviously coming from Orioles season-ticket holders who resold those tickets to Yankees fans, which is certainly their prerogative," Foss said.

BOSTON -- Orioles chief operating officer Joe Foss finished two days of observation and meetings with manager Ray Miller yesterday regarding the club's ongoing general manager search.

Indians majority owner Richard Jacobs last week seconded general manager John Hart's authorization for the Orioles to interview O'Dowd.

You can't beat Bob Fosse. The dance moves created by the late, legendary Broadway choreographer are so definitive that their interpretations by local choreographer Lori Struss are reason enough to see "Chicago," now being revived by Columbia's Silhouette Stages. The production, which runs at Slayton House until the end of the weekend, has more to offer than spiffy dance moves, however. There's also some fine acting, powerful singing and a story that's, well, pretty strange, but nonetheless interesting and very provocative.

Forget performance-enhancing drugs, escalating contracts and the endless dissection of every transaction by blogs and fan sites. Sports has changed on a much more fundamental level. Our games, put simply, have become pretty complicated. Author Michael Lewis has called it the "intellectualization of professional sports," but we're really talking about a revolution, one that's dividing sports consumers into two groups: those who are content to digest sports as they always have, and those who need supercomputers and economics textbooks to process these new-fangled statistics and fancy-pants strategies.

The Orioles will be heard on Baltimore's most powerful radio station for the 18th season in a row this year after the club agreed to a one-year extension of its contract with WBAL. Neither side would disclose the exact value of the deal, which was announced yesterday. But Orioles chief operating officer Joe Foss said the terms are not "precisely the same, but generally the same as they were in the past." The original deal began in the 2000 season and at the time was reported to be costing WBAL about $4 million a year.

A boy could hide in Columbine High School. Let others choose colleges, majors, futures. Senior Adam Foss drove fast, pulled pranks and drifted towards graduation. School was a lark, life a good time. Then the halls erupted with gunshots. The killers were outside the choir room. Panicked students needed help. Who could they turn to? "In here!" Adam shouted. He herded them into an empty office. They waited. They prayed. And in those hours, an aimless boy discovered himself.It was the kind of day that made Adam Foss want to skip school.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Largely overshadowed by the more publicized installation of general manager Frank Wren and his front office entourage, John Angelos has graduated to Orioles executive vice president, making him the club's third-ranking official behind his father, majority owner and chairman Peter Angelos, and chief operating officer Joe Foss.The move places John Angelos in charge of day-to-day administrative operations, a role formerly held exclusively by Foss.In turn, Foss will be freed to assume a more strategic role, handling the team's dealings with Major League Baseball, its protracted search for a new spring training site and the owner's downtown hotel project.

Bob Fosse's choreography is as frigid and throbbing with raw life as a winter thaw. Watch Cabaret or the staged version of Chicago, and it's easy to imagine each dancer's elegantly splayed finger as a melting icicle, each daintily tipped black bowler as a bird's nest. Fosse, of course, is the choreographer who gave musical theater Damn Yankees, Sweet Charity and, most notably Cabaret and Chicago. (At least, he gave us the stage musical of the latter; the Oscar Award-winning movie was choreographed by someone else.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Forty-four games. That's how long the Orioles had gone without a save until Jorge Julio finally recorded one yesterday in their 4-3 victory over the Tampa Bay Devil Rays. The streak dates to Aug. 23. It lasted through the Orioles' horrendous 4-32 stretch to close last season and through their first eight games of this year. B.J. Ryan actually recorded the save in that Aug. 23 victory over Toronto. Julio, who converted 25 of 31 save opportunities last season, didn't have a save chance after Aug. 15 last season and blew his first two opportunities this year.
