The set isn't finished. No costumes, no special lighting. Cables and portable fans litter the aisles. Actor John Sloan takes center stage and positions himself on a circular metal grid. Behind him and off to one side is a wooden throne mounted on a tiered platform; plain wooden risers flank either side of the stage. At the Theatre @ Boston Court in Pasadena, director Jessica Kubzansky, Sloan and fellow cast members Paige Lindsey White and James Ortlieb are rehearsing “R II,” Kubzansky's new adaptation of Shakespeare's “Richard II,” premiering Sept.

To Caroline, the Last of Camelot! From the corner of my eye, there she was. Immediately I recognized her; and was seductively drawn to her once again. Was it that long ago when I first noticed her _ standing alone at Penelope's Cafe as though beckoning one to partake in the myriad of her charms? It was! It was 2001 when we first met, and I knew when I read her that she would govern my soul. I kid you not. I remember well what ensued. It was my first visit to Penelope's; my first taste of a steamy chai latte; and my first encounter _ with her. You don't forget something like that.
