LOS ANGELES -- Theatre 40's business manager happens to have the same name as a certain woman involved in a notorious Washington scandal.
After Los Angeles Times' "Only in L.A." columnist Steve Harvey spotted Paula Jones' name in a Theatre 40 program and gave her a bit of space, Geraldo jumped in.
Jones was then flown to New York City to appear on "The Geraldo Show" in a segment devoted to same-names and look-a-likes involved in the ongoing Presidential investigation.
The Beverly Hills-based Theatre 40 also found time to annouce the cast for the West Coast premiere of Prin, by Andrew Davies.
Katherine Henryk, Ann Hearn, Charles Green, Philip Persons, Stephanie Moffett and David Hunt Stafford are featured. Harry Singleton directs and has assembled the following technical crew: Artur Cybulski (set); Debra Garcia Lockwood (lights), Mark Steiger (stage manager) and David Hunt Stafford (producer). Prin opens Mar. 30 and plays Mon.-Wed. at 8 PM through April 29. For tickets, $12, call (213) 876-8980.
