Page 22-. Examtarr, Fib. u, m cccc Candide: A Witty, Literate Musical By STANLEY EICHELBAUM IF YOU ARE an admirer of Leonard Bernstein's enchanting and lilting music for "Candide," then I heartily recommend the fine production that the Company of the Golden Hind has just opened at the Bella Pacific Theater. Though it is done with a single piano and only 11 performers (most of them in multiple roles), the musical still comes off as a rich and pleasurable experience. Rachmael ben Avram decided to stage the show like an ambitious dramatic reading similar to the concert version that visited the Opera House two years ago and it worked beautifully. THE SINGERS appear in evening clothes and perform with props and bits of costumes (hats, veils, masks, etc.). There is no scenery to speak of. Ben Avram moves his cast around with graceful ingenuity on a series of platforms so that the show has a brisk style and even a sense of grandeur. I am convinced that this adaptation of Voltaire's bit- TURA SATANA, "Mis Japan Beautiful," headllnei show crt Preildent Follies for two weflla ("lh- w - 'I- " fjhti- '1:3 v e .. I; :.vv ' I ; 'J'? Eleanor Powell Returns AFTER 14 YEARS of retirement, the popular film star, Eleanor Powell, has emerged for a stage engagement in a musical revue at the Sahara in Las Vegas. Miss Powell, Hollywood's top female dancer of the 1940's, opens tonight at the Nevada spa.

Ing and pessimistic novel will some day be recognized as one of this generation's most important musicals. Though a handsomely lavish production failed on Broadway five years ago (because it was too off-beat), the work has already won an army of ardent supporters. Certainly, the score Is Bernstein's finest to date and the lyrics are the wittiest and most literate ever written for the theater. If Lillian Hellman's book seems a trifle overloaded, it is because Voltaire's original defies dramatization. We follow the foolish and simple-hearted Candide around the world from Westphalia to Buenos Aires as he undergoes one natural or man-made disaster after the other (a shipwreck, an earthquake, a war and so forth). He is convinced that there is human goodness left on earth, but is forced to change his mind. THE GOLDEN HIND performances were generally excellent, especially those of Robert Bush (as Candide), Kathryn De Haven (as his fickle sweetheart Cunegonde) and Aldo Calcagno (as the optimistic philosopher, Pan-gloss). The supporting cast was no less outstanding and highest praise is due Ron Mitchell, John Mcllale and Elinor Geffert for their various roles. There were a few careless unsubtleties. In such a top-notch production, they oozed out like molasses. Sue Starck, as a worldly old woman, sang wonderfully but she overdid her bumps and grinds in the "Assimilation Tango." And, is fhe same way, I saw no reason for Warren Austin's tasteless mugging in his characterization of Cune-gonde's epicene brother. He might have made his point without being grotesque. This is the third Inge play to be produced by the company. TWO MORE weekends remain for the run of "Sight Unseen" at the Richmond Community Theater at the Village Playhouse in Point Richmond. The comedy about ghosts, which plays Friday and Saturday nights, ends its engagement on March 11. "Twelfth Xighf is the next production. Sat,, Miroh 4, 8:30 P.M. Mon. Ihru Frl. Cont.

"You seem to be more interested in family affairs," Cassandra, the prophetess from Troy, remarks. It is an hilarious moment, demonstrating playwright John Richardson's ability to poke fun at the classical drama while he uses it to the full for his own theatrical" purposes.

The beginning of Act 3 a scene between Orestes and his low-born fiancee, Praxithia (Joan Sheinberg) was b a r e 1 y audible. Otherwise the cast especially Eileen Earle as Penelope, George Hitchcock as Agamemnon and Thelma Gilland as Cassandra performed with great zest. There was hardly a "sore thumb" amongst them. EARLE MARSH'S direction in the rather cramped theater left little to be desired. Even in crowded scenes, the small stage did not appear overlittered with people. And Anthony Martin's sets were simple enough to be effective, yet unassuming, thereby giving all the room to the actors. In spite of an anticlimac-tic third act, Richardson's satire provides an excellent evening of entertainment. His ironic evaluation of two conflicting political philosophiesas personified by Agamemnon and Aegisthus is witty and provocative.
