.10-D THEATRE Sr. Petersburg Times, Friday, July 16, 1965 PLOT GENERALLY GROUNDED Wry Look At War: Skillful 'Tiger' TlOtr it tho Gate" by Jmn Glrau-. ttoux, trantlitod by Christopher Fry. On ot four playa In repertory through Aufluit 21 it Asolo ThMtre, Saraiota. Ticket! tl area box offices or Sarasota M771. J By BRUCE DUNNING ; Of The Times Staff War is the central figure In Ihe Asolo Theatre's clever production of "Tiger at the Gates," the Fry-Giraudoux play In Troy as the war over Helen breaks out ; One could quite tritely comment that this production reveals the "many faces of war" and this is true but insufficient. War becomes a very real personality, developed and defined as a character by the actors. Although set in Troy as the Greeks wait before the gates, the play is 20th century in its outlook. Both Fry and Girau-doux ur? the legend of Paris and Helen as way to look with amusement at men and war in our time. Hector, played with sturdy gusto by Albert Smelko, sees war from the point of view of the soldier who has just returned from battle and wants only peace. OTHERS GLORIFY and justify war as bringing out the finest nature of men. Paul Weidner turns the court poet Demekos into an old booby spouting high, hollow and funny homage to war.

And Helen, delightfully portrayed by Arlene Nadel, symbolizes the beautiful madness that has overtaken Troy. Michael Keenan's skillful portrayal of a mathematician turned poet by Helen's beauty is the epitome of Troy's madness. Supposedly a man of thought and logic, Keenan's character embarks on flights of fatuous and funny homage to Helen. Bob Grubbs as Paris is an effete voluptuary in excellent contrast to Smelko's sensible soldier. His subtle and devious thinking justifies to him any sacrifice for Helen. Isa Thomas is a dry commentator and bubble-burster as Hecuba, Troy's queen. And as King Priam, Grant Kilpatrick also shows what fools the men of Troy have made of themselves. ANOTHER VOICE of sense and perspective comes from Polly Holliday's Cassandra, the prophetess doomed never to be believed. Her Cassandra is an earthy member of the family, full of common sense, dispelling the all-too-common view of Cas sandra as an otherworldly crea ture. The play, as skillfully staged by director Richard Fallon, is an amusing, wry and humorously thoughtful commentary on arms and men, ancient or modern.

I'll be happy to tell everyone what's new. "What's New, Pussycat?" the bedroom farce now at the Palms Theatre Is a perverted, plotless movie full of slapstick, sexual situations which collapse into one lengthy chase. The enjoyment of this movie will depend upon the individual. Intelligent, sensitive people will abhor it, theatrical artists will laugh at it and the zippy, ippy, jazzy, snazzy set will "adore" it. Written by Woody Allen, the leading neurotic comedian of our day, "What's New Pussy cat?" stars Peter O'Toole as a fashion editor who can't avoid nymphomaniacs, Peter Sellers as his analyst who's more eager to join him than cure him, Romy Schneider who's O'Toole's "Pussycat," Capucine a beautiful neurotic with an icy exte rior and smoldering interior and Paula Prentiss as a sensational stripper. Ursula Andress of "Dr. No" fame plays a cameo part as a sex-mad parachutist. Woody Allen stars as an un- lresser for strippers at the Crazy Horse Saloon and he's afflicted with girl troubles, too. Tom Jones belts out the theme Rome's Noise Muffled ROME IT) Rome police handed out 542 fines in a single week in June against autoists who honked too much, owners of transistor radios, juke boxes or TV sets tuned on too loud, or exuberant celebrators who made too much racket. It was part of Rome's campaign to give tourists a quieter stay here.

Some of the incidents and bits are extremely funny, others fall flat and become lost in the din. O'Toole's talents seem to be lost in his shuffling of femmes but Peter Sellers, dressed in red velvet, cowboy boots and a long bob, steals acting honors. Unfortunately "Pussycat" has no internal rationale ... it only wants to be externally fashionable. If a bawdy 18th century bedroom farce dressed up in the glib 20th century fashion is fashionable, and you want to be this fashionable, then go and enjoy yourself. Richard Burton makes a surprise, 30-second appearance. Marlene Haugland. St. Paul's Cathedral Getting Face Cleaned LONDON IT) - By July of 1966 you will be able to see St. Paul's Cathedral as the Wren masterpiece looked 255 years ago. The cleaning of the outside of the entire cathedral should be complete by then. In addition, the cross and ball surmounting the dome will be gilded. The cost will be $420,000, raised by public appeal.

The Florida Theatre has caged "The Sandpiper" and the famous Burtons. The trite, sometimes ponderous story deals with an affair between an unwed nonconformist and the headmaster of a private boys' school attended by her nine-year-old son. Naturally Lizzie is the voluptuous, beatnik artist and Burton Is the married, Episcopalian minister. EVA MARIE Saint portrays Burton's wife, Charles Bronson is a beatnik sculptor and Morgan Mason, the son of Pamela and James Mason, Is the nine-year-old. These two sinners continuously argue whether they should or shouldn't and when they do, they berate themselves for their honest passions. Virtuous philos ophies are batted back and forth as the minister loses the meaning of evil and the much used artist adds love to her di mension. After fighting these urges for 115 minutes the audience is left with an admiration for Dickie's maleness and somewhat re strained performance, shock at Liz's plumpness and mundane JJWM1 PMIVIMMI OPEN 6:40 f.otur. 6:53- 1:55 P'eienii Peter Peter Sellers 0 Toole Romy Schneider Capucine Paula Prentiss ind latt but not lau Woody Alien and aue tt ttar Ursula Andress.
