NYTimes - over 15 years
Just about everything in ''King Lear'' depends on the first scene. When Lear, the elderly monarch with a kingdom to divide, asks his three daughters to declare their love for him to ''earn'' their inheritances, there has to be good reason for the youngest, Cordelia, to refuse to play the game. If not, the hate and death and destruction that follow

FILM REVIEW; When Only the Quarterback Is Cool
NYTimes - about 19 years
West Canaan, Tex., the setting of ''Varsity Blues,'' a crisply directed but entirely predictable all-American morality tale, is a small town that eats, sleeps and breathes football. For the last 22 years, the Coyotes, the local high school team, have won the district championship. Those victories have elevated the team's mean, hard-driving coach

TV WEEKEND; Hard Bargain: Buying a Baby, Selling a Soul
NYTimes - over 19 years
Stockard Channing does not look at home in a Louisiana trailer park. Which is a point ''The Baby Dance'' wants to make. There she is, as Rachel Luckman, a well-dressed Hollywood executive, making her way through the trash-strewn yards, fending off barking dogs, avoiding the stares of half-naked men who are working on a car. Finally she reaches the

FILM REVIEW; At Least The Horses Are Sane
NYTimes - almost 20 years
If ''Hush'' is any indication of the future path of Jessica Lange's movie career, it won't be long before she is wielding a bloody ax and bellowing like a lunatic in the kind of psycho-killer romp associated with the cinematic twilights of Bette Davis and Tallulah Bankhead. To give those Grand Guignol camp fests their due, at least they exuded a

Review/Theater; A Couple Try to Buy What They Can't Make
NYTimes - over 26 years
Any chronic theatergoer is sooner or later asked, "What is the worst play you've ever seen?" There is no answer, of course, but if pressed to the wall, I might be tempted to start such a discussion with "The Wayward Stork," a short-lived farce of 25 years ago in which the late, great comedian Bob Cummings, his hair all but aflame with red dye,

Review/Theater; Two Disparate Couples Know Pain of Adoption
NYTimes - almost 27 years
The usefulness of theater as a forum for contemporary issues is confirmed by "The Baby Dance," Jane Anderson's play about problems of adoption. The fact that the work (at Long Wharf Theater) is flawed does not decrease one's interest in the arguments raised.

A COUPLE of years ago, four women -- two actresses, one director and one playwright -- sat around, talking about an idea for a play.
