';ACE-ed Ollt: The National Academy of Cable Programming has "changed the name of its annual awards for original cable programming from ACE to CableACE. The switch ends confusion 'between the cable award and the American Cinema Editors, which Z pi years has used the ACE acronym.

I STAGE '. NO 'Camping': "Camping With Henry and Tom" has been ;1 bumped from the Pasadena Playhouse season for the second year ' in a row, with "extraordinary casting demands" cited as the reason by artistic director Paul Lazarus. It will be replaced by "Closer ;1 Than Ever," the Richard Maltby Jr.David Shire revue, to be staged by Maltby, May 24-June 28, with a quartet including Gary Beach, Meg Bussert, Jason Workman and original New York cast member Sally Mayes.

The English-made piano, given to the composer in 1818 by Thomas Broadwood, son of the founder of the firm that made it, has been insured for $8.8 million for the six weeks it will be away from the National Museum of Hungary. The meticulously restored piano, described by a contemporary Viennese arts journal as "possibly the most perfect grand pianoforte ever construct- ed," will be played in concerts in London and Bath before being returned to Budapest. After Beethoven's death, the piano was I bought for Liszt, who bequeathed it to the Budapest museum. No Strings Attached: Speaking of treasured instruments, a , Japanese company is offering free use of a Stradivarius violin to I the winner of a musical competition to be held in Tokyo in October. ; 'Forval Corp., a Tokyo company that sells and services electronic equipment, says the idea is to give gifted artists a chance to use the 2-coveted instrument for two years to help their talents flower. The ;Zompany declined to say how much it paid for its 1697 Stradivarius, "bought from Norbert Brainin, first violinist of the Amadeus ftuartet. About 600 violins and a few violas and cellos made by Antonio Stradivari, an Italian who lived from 1644 to 1737, still ;dst today. 'MOVIES JllSt a Little Change: Walt Disney Picture's Oscar-winning ; animated feature "Beauty and the Beast" has become the studio's highest grossing movie in first-run release. Disney distribution I president Richard Cook said Monday the film has grossed $130.8 ; million since its November release, surpassing the $130.7 million grossed by 1989's live action film "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids." -ALEENE MacMINN r Beethoven Gorbachev : LIZ SMITH i Flying In for Forbes Fete NEW YORK-On May 1 1 at New York's Radio City Music Hall, Forbes magazine will celebrate its 75th anniversary. This I NYC happening is shaping up as quite an event. Guests of honor will be former U.S. President Ronald Keagan and former Soviet President Mikhail S. Gorbachev. A one-hour documentary, "Happily Ever After? The 20th Century Struggle for Democracy," will be shown. This is narrated by Walter Cronkite, Charlton Heston and Barbara Walters. One question: Is the fabled Music Hall big enough to accommodate the traditional Forbes hot-air balloons and fireworks? Gorbachev and his wife, Raisa, will leave Moscow on May Day aboard Forbes' Capitalist Tool, en route to Santa Barbara, where they I will appear at a Reagan Library dinner May 2. Then the one-time ; First Couple of all the Russias will spend two weeks "Capitalist Tooling" it across the U.S.A. :- Wow! That's what the audience was saying during Saturday's t performance of "A Streetcar Named Desire." And it wasn't all for ;-(he onstage thesping of Jessica Lange and Alec Baldwin (though ;Zthe actors received a rousing standing ovation). No, it was the Z presence of the divine Alexis Smith blond, dressed to kill in j -black, as striking and soigne! as ever who had everybody aflutter. ZKven people who didn't recognize Alexis were nudging each other Tmd saying, "Who is that woman?" Z -' While in Los Angeles recently, I had so many adventures I've ; never been able to get them all into print. - Ran into that Hollywood PR maven, Pat Kingsley, at the Z beautifully redone Regent Beverly Wilshire. She expressed J disappointment at having cooperated with Mirabella magazine in an article about film flackery. She said the editors had omitted Z - what she feels was the most important part of her discussion on '-how the public relations biz for stars has changed. Ki' Said Kingsley, queen of all she surveys: "I wanted to say that 'he reason press agents now react differently is because we are (eacting to changes in the mainstream press, right up to and luhicluding the august New York Times. Press agents haven't J changed so much as we have been forced to, by tabloid and j- mainstream sensationalism. Sensation and scandal are now staples Tof almost the entire media. And we are trying to protect our clients J;from these methods." :: o I Tony Randall's wife, Florence, died on Saturday in her ; Manhattan home after a long illness. She and Tony were school sweethearts and had been married for 54 years. For many years, Florence was Bill Blass' favorite mannequin, as she enjoyed a 5 perfect body as well as a perfect marriage. In lieu of flowers, donations should be made to the National Actors Theatre, 1500 Weekend Box Office For a holiday weekend, action at the box office was unremarkable. Continuing films like "Basic Instinct" and "White Men Can't Jump" ruled the roost, while "Wayne's World" topped the $100-million mark. Among animated films, "FernGully" pulled OK numbers, while "Rock-a-Doodle" did a poor $1 million. "Brenda Starr," the comic strip-inspired movie with the all-but-forgolten Brooke Shields as a news reporter, may be the story of the fallen star. The film missed its deadline by years having started in 1986 on a $16-million budget. When it opened last week, it was buried on the back pages by the major newspapers. They'll be writing the obit on this one any minute. -DAVID J. FOX SOURCE: Exhibitor Relations Co. Weekend Gross Screens Weeks In Movie (Studio) Total (millions) Average Release 1.
