22 PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE: Tues., Jan. 13, 1981 Triangle Tattler: Young company is frozen out of its theater Have show, will travel: One of the city's adventurous young theater companies is all rehearsed with no place to go. The weekend's frigid ' weather caused the water pipes to burst at Theater Express, and the company won't be able to open its third production of the season as scheduled on Thursday. "We need a theater and we're willing to perform anywhere tliat ; has a 220-volt line and as few as 50 ! seats," said artistic director Jed Harris. Theater express was scheduled to present the Pittsburgh premiere of ''Dusa, Fish, Stas and Vi," a British v play by Pam Gems. "Frankly, with our cash flow situ-ation, if we don't get this show on in the next two weeks it could very r well mean the end for us," Harris said. Changing directions: Friction may produce pearls but it doesn't always guarantee gems on screen. So many of the disappointing year-end films were the results of con- George Anderson flict during production. "Flash Gordon" was worked on for a long time by director Nicholas Roeg ("Don't Look Now") but he was replaced by Mike Hodges ("Get Carter"). "The Jazz Singer" was started by director Sidney J. Furie ("Lady Sings the Blues"), but he was fired and production shut down until a replacement could be found. Richard Fleischer ("Tora, Tora, Tora") got the job. "A Change of Seasons" was beset by turmoil and director Noel Black ("Pretty Poison") was fired. Richard Lang ("Mountain Men") com pleted the film. "First Family" drew negative response in its first sneak preview and writer-director Buck Henry ("Heaven Can Wait") re-shot the ending. "Altered States," which has not opened here yet but was a Christmas release in New York and Los Angeles, had a prolonged shooting schedule during which director Arthur Penn ("Bonnie and Clyde") left the project and was replaced by Ken Russell ("Women in Love"). Writer Paddy Chayefsky ("Network") insisted his name be removed from the credits, and the screenplay author is now listed as Sidney Aaron, a fictitious person. This pattern is becoming standard in the tumultuous movie business. Coming up later this month is "The Incredible Shrinking Woman," which was started by director John Landis ("The Blues Brothers"), who dropped out of the project when Universal drastically cut the budget. Joel Schumacher, who wrote the screenplay for "The Wiz," made his debut as director instead. No wonder so many movies today don't hang together. The show goes on and on: Father Tom Smith and his three colleagues in the cloth will return to Ben Gross' restaurant for six weekends starting Jan. 23. Their previous run was a sellout and they ended up on the Today show. . . . The musical revue "Eight to the Bar" has been held over at the Fountain Room in Wil-kins Township through Jan. 30. One cast member Tom Quick has had to drop out, so Jim Humbel will join the other originals, Terry Azzara, Jerry Comunale and Mary Ann Wolfe for the rest of the run. Behind the scenes: Aside to Joanne Pflugh: Yes, it's true the flashback at the end of Agatha Christie's "The Mirror Crack'd," which provides the motivation for the movie's murders, is based on a tragedy that actually happened to Gene Tierney back in the 1940s. Agatha Christie used an incident at the Hollywood Canteen during World War II as the basis for the book. As with the character that Elizabeth Taylor plays in the movie, the tragedy eventually contributed to Tierney's nervous breakdown Neil Diamond attended the black-tie premiere of "The Jazz Singer" in New York, but he was conspicuously attended by bodyguards. It was less. than a week after the murder of John Lennon, and Diamond, like a lot of celebrities, was feeling uneasy about public appearances. He also skipped the press interviews the next day, although that may have been because he foresaw the reviews. Quoteworthy: Asked if she was dismayed to be named to self-appointed fashion authority Black-well's list of the worst-dressed women, Jill Clayburgh shrieked with laughter and said, "I was thrilled. Bo Derek was on that list, too. In what other way could I ever get on the same list as Bo Derek? I was absolutely delighted." On the town: Chuck Brinkman is putting together four hours of Frank Sinatra music and an array of giveaways of Sinatra memorabilia at the Monroeville Marriott's Poolside Lounge tomorrow starting at 9 p.m. Record albums and autographed photos will be given away by the WFFM disc jockey. ... A policeman's lot will be a heavenly one when the plush disco Heaven begins a series of special parties to thank the city's men and women in blue on Jan. 22 Pittsburgh Public Theater finally made the New York Times on Dec. 28, but in the real estate pages instead of the entertainment section. The article "Housing Scarce for Touring Actors" showed John Carpenter and Dorothy Stinnette, the leads in "Death of a Salesman," in front of the Victorian show house where the company houses visiting actors on the North ' Side.
