Antonio Tuesday. “Live with Regis and Kathie Lee” airs locally on KMOL-TV/Channel 4 at 9 a m. weekdays. Two shows will be taped at the Arneson River Theater for airing Thursday and Friday, April 24 and 25. A Review Circle Arts adds right touch to classic comedy By MARY POWELL When you combine something as deadly as arsenic with something fragile, pure and reminiscent of grandmother’s bosom you j'et a sticky incongruity, which is a nice place for comedy to grow. In his four-word title the writer has said a lot, and promised more — a promise which doesn't go unfulfilled. Elizabeth F.lliott has done her magic again, assembling a large and exceptional cast. From San Antonio, New Braunfels, Canyon Lake, middle school and the high school they hail ordinary people with extraordinary talent. Alice Finney as Abby Brewster brings to this part a twinkling eye, the energy of a hummingbird and 82 years of experience with life. We know she means it when she tells us, “Mr. Hitler is not a Christian,’’ “poison tastes better in wine,” and “if there’s anything a policeman hates to do, it’s write out a report.” Abby and her sister Martha, played with a steady, loving touch by Mary Byall, walk a fine line between proper and capricious; and all dressed up in black for “services” they are something to behold. These two may be guilty of “bringing old men lo peace” with a little glass of poisoned Elderberry wine, but they remain innocent at heart. “It’s not murder,” they explain. “It’s one of our charities.” The two eccentric ladies live with nephew Teddy, played by Joseph Libby. Teddy’s problem is that he has himself confused with Teddy Roosevelt. He stays awfully busy digging locks in Panama (which happens to be conveniently located in the basement), and of course there tire all those yellow fever victims to be buried. Teddy has a demanding life — but he’s up for it. It’s bully good exercise, you know, charging San Juan Hill each time he goes upstairs. Libby’s presence Fills die stage and each time he’s on, it’s an event. Mortimer is the more normal nephew — a drama critic. Played effectively by Keith Trammell, Mortimer discovers his aunts’ little secret and is reeling somewhere between confusion and horror when his long lost brother, Jonathan, arrives. Jonathan, played by Bob Watson, is appropriately sinister, with a ghostly pallor, dark circles under the eyes, and a badly disfigured face which he needs to get “fixed.” Jonathan is a real murderer (not a charitable one) and he, loo, has a corpse that needs to be disposed of.

Director Elizabeth Elliott, along with Roberta Elliott, designed a set that she uses to good advantage to spice up an already comic situation. Picture the “sitting room” of a nice home in Brooklyn 50 years ago. There’s a red velvet settee, a breakfront that holds the cut glass stemware and the fine china. There are floor-to-cciling tie-back drapes, a round-faced mantel clock and hummable tunes playing on the radio. It’s an authentic backdrop as the first act unfolds. In the second act the pace picks up. In the front door, out the side window, up the stairs, out to the kitchen, out the door, in the window, down to Panama they go, Abby and Martha and the crazy nephew and die mean one and the frantic, sane one and his girlfriend and the police, and the others. Like time-lapse photography the action on the stage moves at a smooth clip. Watch carefully or you’ll miss something. There arc some notable supporting roles, as well. Lewis Sarkozi is funny and original as Dr. Einstein, Jonathan’s sleazy, independent accomplice. Bob Wicall shines as Officer O’Hara, a budding playwright in policeman’s garb. And you’ll sec Greg Cerrato in two small but distinctly different parts. Take a good cast that can work together, an intriguing situation, a fine set, some rich dialogue, a few dead bodies and some classy costumes arid you’ll have a delightful play. Then when the madcap antics arc suddenly tempered with scenes done in silhouette, you’ll notice that his isn’t just another comedy — it’s pretty sophisticated theatre. Arsenic and Old Lace runs through April 27. For reservations call 620-3024. tim M il wheel OF TEXAS performing nl Bach and barbecue Two classics of western civilization come together Sunday at Southwestern University in Georgetown.
