Written in 1928 by Mae West, the stage play "Diamond Lil" has laced itself into a position of public awareness once again. Three events in August, that led to whoopee, winks, and ink in The New York Times, The Village Voice, The Brooklyn Courier, etc., lifted the petticoats of petulance from the attitudes of no less than 300 Manhattanites who have missed Mae West.

Hallowe'en is out of the way now, so it's time to get a bit festive. What better way than crooning along to White Christmas, ready to settle in at the Dominion, starring Aled Jones (a voice inextricably linked with this season here in Britain) and Tom Chambers? It toured the UK last year to a mighty set of impressive reviews, and now it takes the place of Evita - now finishing its limited engagement - at the Tottenham Court Road venue.

Angry irony does not usually get used to describe the lyrics of Oscar Hammerstein. But there isn't always a bright golden haze on the meadow. 'You've got to be taught to be afraid/of people whose eyes are oddly made/and people whose skin is a different shade,' came from his pen as did, 'You've got to be taught before it's too late/before you are six or seven or eight. . . .' The character who sings these words in South Pacific is furious because he's a white man in love with an Asian woman, and in the late 1940s, he's surrounded by people who'd find her eyes to be oddly made. Adam Turner, the eponymous character in Anna Ziegler's Boy being taught what to be before it's 'too late,' also has the double whammy of being the person who doesn't fit society's idea of how to be. The situation jumps out of Hammerstein's league into Orwell's because it's doubleplusungood. But that word's off the table as applied to Keegan Theatre's fine production of the 90 minute Boy; directed with skill and compassion by Susan Marie Rhea.
