Using a concept devised by lead actor Patrick Stewart, the radical interpretation of "Othello" at Washington's Shakespeare Theatre flips the racial makeup of the cast, posing a white Othello opposite an almost entirely African-American company.Described by director Jude Kelly as a "photo negative," this rethinking is one of several bold and largely successful choices in a production that also features an increased emphasis on abuse against women. Combined with Stewart's strong showing in the title role, this "Othello" would be a landmark if it weren't marred by a weak co-star.

Musical revivals, dance shows and one of Baltimore's native sons were among the high scorers in yesterday's Tony Award nominations. In a season when most shows seemed to be getting smaller, two lavish productions -- both musical revivals -- danced off with the largest number of nominations, which were announced in New York. Cole Porter's "Kiss Me, Kate" chalked up 12 nominations, while Meredith Willson's "The Music Man" took nine. The 54th annual Tony Awards will also honor Baltimorean T. Edward Hambleton.

Stage versions of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol come in all shapes and sizes. On the large-scale end, there's the extravaganza at Madison Square Garden (which has just announced that this year, it's 10th, will be its last). On the small-scale end, there are one-man versions, such as the one adapted and performed by Patrick Stewart (admittedly, a large-scale talent). In keeping with the more modest approach, the Baltimore Shakespeare Festival is premiering its own one-man rendition, adapted by local playwright Kimberley Lynne and starring the festival's artistic director, James Kinstle.

"Masterminds" is a cinematic antidote to teen-age disaffection, a harmless thriller occurring at the intersection of "Home Alone" and "Die Hard," where the most resourceful people of all ride skateboards and worry about acne.Vincent Kartheiser as the young hero has the slouchy hipness, the mischievous smirk and the long lashes that should make him a teen sensation. He plays 16-year-old Ozzie Paxton, who, while lacking a skin condition, has plenty of other ingredients that brew a fine stew of adolescent angst: a mother who abandoned him, a workaholic father who doesn't pay enough attention and a pest of a younger stepsister.

Just what we needed least: A gay sitcom about AIDS.The movie is "Jeffrey," which opens today at the Charles, an antic version of Paul Rudnick's play about a young gay man who attempts to come to terms with the disease that haunts his culture and his life. But unlike any of the mournful Kaddishes for the world of AIDS that have preceded it, this one is played fast and loopy, more like a college black-out comedy in a coffeehouse than a structured comedy. It speaks loudly with a great big shtick.

Starship alert! Starship alert! (Warning: Trekkies, take your seats. We cannot be responsible for the impact of the following transmission.)The commander of the starship Enterprise, Capt. Jean-Luc Picard, also known as Patrick Stewart, is not a science fiction fan."Gosh, no! Not at all. I have no enthusiasm for it whatsoever," the 50-year-old British actor confirms over the phone from his Los Angeles home.Can this be? Not only has "Star Trek: The Next Generation" made him arguably the most recognizable bald actor since Yul Brynner, he even has his own fan club -- the International Audience Alliance for Patrick Stewart (IAAPS)

He was a septuagenarian who lived by himself, small of stature and in poor health. Is this a description of one of the victims of the recent string of home invasions that targeted elderly residents in four midtown and North Baltimore neighborhoods?Not exactly.Ralph Hagenbuch, 77, was a victim, but in 1984, not 1998. His East Baltimore rowhouse was burglarized, and he was beaten to death.But more than mere circumstance links Hagenbuch's case and that of the six recent break-ins and beatings in October and early this month.
