Center Stage doesn't know if it's ever been tried before, but artistic director Irene Lewis thinks playwright Brendan Behan would have liked nothing better. The production of Behan's "The Hostage" that begins performances Friday, is being staged in a cabaret setting. Tables, chairs and a cash bar will all be part of the environmental design in Center Stage's flexible, upstairs Head Theater. The setting seems like a natural for a play that takes place in an Irish boarding house/brothel/bar.

We had just been seated in a quiet corner of the restauran when the waiter, an earnest young man named Armando, said he hoped we enjoyed our "dining experience."Naturally, my first instinct was to grab my coat and sprint for one of the exits. Because whenever you hear the term "dining experience," it usually includes some sort of bizarre Danish-Portuguese cuisine, fire-engine red banquettes, snooty waiters and a shrimp cocktail appetizer that goes for $9.95 -- not including the electron microscope you need to actually spot the shrimp.

I woke up on the couch at 2 a.m. to a small nightmare -- a particularly bile-inducing edition of "The Jenny Jones Show" on Channel 13.In the center of the TV screen was this guy who had the looks of John Kruk and the mumbly demeanor of Ratso Rizzo; he was the Stud From Hell.Amazingly, on either side of this loser was an attractive, handsomely attired woman, each in her early 30s. One was the wife, one the mistress. Each guest was identified with superimposed graphics: "Had affair with wife's best friend.
