THE HELIOTROPE Bouquet By Scott Joplin and Louis Chauvin,'' first production in Center Stage's newly dedicated Head Theater, is a visual feast more than it is a dramatic or thematic piece.While the organization couldn't have chosen a more suitable inaugural presentation for the theater, the new play is really little more than an impression, a dream-like remembrance of the only time these two ragtime composers met in collaboration.The show is, however, quite interesting, and it doesn't hurt to know, going in, that it runs no more than one hour and 20 minutes without intermission.

If there were such a genre as ragtime theater, it would probably look a lot like Eric Overmyer's "The Heliotrope Bouquet by Scott Joplin & Louis Chauvin," which is receiving its world premiere in Center Stage's new Head Theater.What Mr. Overmyer has done is the tricky task of translating one art form into another. Specifically, he has taken a collaborative composition, "The Heliotrope Bouquet," by Joplin and his little-known contemporary, Louis Chauvin, and sought out the equivalent words and images for the notes and music.

The deck-sitting season is in full swing, and I hope you've done more than just move the house plants outside for the summer.Tropical plants that bear beautiful flowers are waiting to brighten sunny decks, patios and terraces. These lovelies are easy to grow, and rewarding through the spring and summer and well into the autumn. And by bringing them indoors before frost, you can keep them through the winter.Mandevilla, hibiscus, heliotrope and pentas are just four tropical plants that have hit the charts in the last few years, particularly as potted plants for the gardenless gardener.

Spring is near; I hear it coming. Downspouts drip non-stop. The ground goes "squish" instead of "crunch." Winter's retreat is slow but certain. The wood stove relaxes its feeding frenzy; ditto the birds at the backyard feeder.Telltale signs, all.Gardeners are itching to scratch the soil. I get butterflies thinking about spring. I also get butterflies thinking about butterflies, my favorite harbingers of spring.To heck with the first robin; I'm awaiting the arrival of a bright orange monarch.

Tuesday was "Construction Night," and many who worked on the project over the last 18 months were invited for a tour before seeing the play, "The Heliotrope Bouquet by Scott Joplin and Louis Chauvin." Plus, they enjoyed a dessert reception after the show.Movers and shakers with this group were Tom McCracken and Dave Grabowski from Henry Lewis Contractors; architects Craig Hoopes, Steve Ziger and Jamie Snead; and Richard Pilbrow, from Theater Projects, an international company that designs theaters.
