Annapolis Summer Garden Theatre caps its successful season with a dazzling Thoroughly Modern Millie. The "theater under the stars" can boast a phenomenon on its stage in Hana Thornhill's spectacular Summer Garden debut as Millie Dillmount. Thornhill does it all: She dances with airy grace and youthful zest, she sings like a Broadway diva, belting bouncy tunes with pizazz and ballads with feeling, and she can emote as well as any leading lady. She also does wonders for every dazzling costume she dons.

The production of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying by 2nd Star somehow manages to succeed, despite the dearth of memorable tunes in Frank Loesser's surprisingly pedestrian score, the overly long depiction of early 1960s corporate greed, and the acceptance of the era's all-too-prevalent sexual harassment. Still, when the show opened in 1961, writer Abe Burrows was probably ahead of his time in depicting the contemporary scene in which he placed his flawed characters, who now seem relatively innocent.

PHILADELPHIA - Something wasn't quite right with Bill Cosby. It happened just over a month ago, during his first five minutes on a concert stage in Austin, Texas. The audience fidgeted nervously as Cosby awkwardly stumbled over his attempted punch lines. A critic for the Austin American Statesman wrote that Cosby "took his seat at center stage, and for the first five minutes struggled and sputtered." He said the comedian "talked, backtracked, stuttered. It was an odd moment ..." Still, it wasn't quite as odd as the revelation in the Philadelphia Daily News that Cosby allegedly had accused a longtime friend of witchcraft before he evicted her as overseer of his estate in Elkins Park, Pa., where she's lived for 19 years.

A cast of 45 Talent Machine Company members is in final rehearsals for the June 28 opening of a variety show - the company's first without founder and director Bobbi Smith, who died five months ago. TMC returns to its origins by presenting "The Talent Machine," a show written by Michael Gillis and Steve Evans with Bobbi Smith, who developed it as a vehicle for her young performers in 1987. By my count, the latest production makes an even dozen of this show that debuted in 1987 at Annapolis Summer Garden Theatre.
