Meanwhile, a 90210 insider also reveals that Priestley's TV sis, Shannen Doherty, is close to a deal to do two more episodes this season.

British writer J. B. Priestley wrote in a variety of genres and on a variety of subjects, but with the exception of the recent, acclaimed Royal National Theatre revival of "An Inspector Calls," his plays aren't produced much.Furthermore, that Tony Award-winning revival owes much of its success to a bold directorial re-interpretation that emphasizes Priestley's social and political concerns.In contrast, Priestley's 1938 comedy, "When We Are Married" -- currently at Olney Theatre Center -- is a far weaker script.

Consider this a moment emblematic of the political and cultural turmoil of the second half of the 20th century: In the late '50s, a musicologist appeared on "The Mickey Mouse Club," where, bathed in the admiration of Bobby, Doreen, Jimmy, Darlene and even big ol' Roy, played an instrument called a Theremin, a weird electronic thing that used the latest in solid-state electronics to issue sounds like the violin of Jupiter. Half a globe away, the inventor of the Theremin, one Lev Sergeivich Termin, was working in the KGB acoustics laboratory, trying to clean up illicit recordings for Soviet espionage use.That's just part of the odd "electronic odyssey" covered in "Theremin," a documentary opening today at the Charles.

Images die hard, which might be one reason Jason Priestley comes across as so chipper about his movie career. As Brandon Walsh on Beverly Hills, 90210, the clean-cut Canadian actor melted teen-age hearts across the continent. Even though he's now 34, Priestley's still having fun living it down, as he does with zeal in Die, Mommie, Die! The comedy, adapted from actor-dramatist Charles Busch's drag-queen paean to Joan Crawford melodramas, is one of those over-the-top satires perfect for any celebrity looking to go dishy.

LONDON -- Ian MacNeil is the designer who made his theatrical reputation by putting an Edwardian dollhouse on stilts and busting it apart.The quake comes near the end of J.B. Priestley's "An Inspector Calls," which opens at Baltimore's Mechanic Theatre on Tuesday. Before the house falls, Mr. MacNeil unleashes all the tricks of the set designer's trade, from pouring rain onto the stage to using more fog than a heavy metal rock video. He also creates a hellish landscape of 20th-century Britain, borrowing imagery from T.S. Eliot's "The Wasteland" and the motion pictures "The Exorcist" and "The Third Man."

90210 -- if you don't know what zip code this is, you aren't a teen or the parent of one. "Beverly Hills, 90210," which debuted ++ in October 1990, is celebrating its 100th episode tonight.In the beginning, the show didn't make much of a splash. The title didn't indicate it was about high school students, no one had ever heard of the stars, and it was on the tiny Fox network. Critics mostly ignored it.But gradually, the show built a following with young viewers. By the summer of 1991, it was a certified hit.The idea was to show the real-life problems of teens, from their perspective.
