There’s a very special place in Glendale, where for more than 20 years, parents who don’t like the idea of letting their children stay home and watch TV all Saturday morning can bring the kids. At the Glendale Centre Theatre, younger ones can dress up as their favorite princess or prince, play on a real stage during intermission and have their pictures taken with their favorite fairy tale characters after the show. All well and good for the kids, you might say, but what do I, the grown-up, get out of it?

The play holds kids' attention Jo Ann Stupakis writes the PTA column for the News-Press. Having never been to the Falcon Theatre in Burbank, I wasn't sure what to expect. My 5-year-old son, Gregory, whined that he didn't want to go because the play was about a girl. I assured him that there would be boy characters, so he relented. "Rapunzel," written by Lori Marshall and directed by Joseph Leo Bwarie, was a masterpiece of fantasy, reality and comedy.

Jenna Bordelon LOS ANGELES ZOO -- Some gorillas have all the luck. A special Valentine's treat was put together Thursday for the Western Lowland gorillas as a kickoff for "L.A. Zoo Lovin,"' a two-day Valentine's event starting Saturday. The gorilla habitat at the Los Angeles Zoo was decorated with flowers, red peppers, roses and two huge, heart-shaped Popsicles. Caesar, a 550-pound male gorilla, proved a regular heart-breaker. He broke the Popsicle apart and ate it. Zookeepers are hoping for a reproductive match between Caesar, 21, Rapunzel, 15, and Evelyn, 23. Animal keeper Jennifer Chatfield said males can have anywhere from two to several offspring in the wild.

The play’s the thing, at least for one local theater company offering audiences a night of fine art — without the falderal of complicated sets and elaborate costumes. The La CaƱada Theatre Company will present its next Black Box Theatre night Thursday, in which area actors perform one-act plays and readings in a minimalist setting meant to showcase the power of a well-acted script. Each of the four mini-productions will be brief — 12 to 20 minutes — and will display a variety of themes and characters meant to entertain and enlighten audiences, said Albert Pugliese, who founded the company in August 2008 and is now its producer and artistic director.

Josh Kleinbaum Innovation often happens in the least likely place. For Ray Harryhausen, a pioneer of stop-motion animation, his breakthrough came in his mother's garage. That's where Harryhausen began breathing life into inanimate objects. In the mid-1940s, fresh out of the Army's special service division, Harryhausen began animating puppets modeled after classic fairy tales. He started in his mother's Los Angeles-area garage, until his father built a hobby house in the backyard.

Going to Briganti, I learned an important lesson: Don't be fooled by first impressions. With so many charming restaurants in historic buildings in South Pasadena, why go to a place with prefab windows and faux distressed bricks? Because the food is incredible, that's why. Once you step inside, the decor becomes a bit more charming. But go a few steps farther to the outdoor courtyard with its soaring roof, try to score a table by the large window that opens onto the tree-lined street, and suddenly you're in a refined trattoria in southern Italy.
