March roared in like a laughing lion at Bowie Playhouse with 2nd Star Productions' opening of Ken Ludwig's comedy Leading Ladies. I laughed so often and so loudly on Saturday that I nearly lost my critic's anonymity, along with my dignity. It was comic relief for everyone tired of grappling with tax forms and hearing political campaign rhetoric. Ludwig's 2004 show is in the farcical tradition of his earlier hits, Lend Me a Tenor and Moon Over Buffalo, filled with colorful characters, coincidences, mistaken identities, an improbable plot and familiar one-liners to provide easy laughs appropriate to its nostalgic 1958 small-town setting.

The old Moose lodge in Catonsville was one of those background buildings that people often drive or walk by, without paying much attention. Now it's much more of an asset to the community, after an $850,000 conversion to a day care center for up to 60 adults with mental illnesses. ReVisions Inc., a nonprofit organization, bought the building at 7 Bloomsbury Ave. last year and began renovations in February. It moved in Aug. 1 and will dedicate the building Sept. 20. Not many groups would have seen the potential for salvaging the brick-faced building, which dates from 1925.
