In keeping with their original offbeat version of the story of Christ’s birth, directors have added a live animal to “Nativity! The Musical” in its fourth year at Westminster Presbyterian Church in Burbank. Bringing Mary to Bethlehem this year will be Bugsy the pony, said Greg Baldwin, who wrote and directs the show with his wife, Melissa. “Seeing an animal in our little sanctuary will be quite a surprise for the audience,” Greg Baldwin said. “It’s not what you expect to see.” Bugsy is a consummate professional, the Burbank resident added.

Dean Briggs, Weekend BURBANK -- "Las Vegas Hospital," written and performed by the Houseful of Honkeys Improvisational group, is a wacky place to be. The improv show opens with a very serious hospital administrator (Matt Young) picking at random an audience member to play the patient who will undergo an operation of his or her choice. Throughout the show, the patient's suggestions are used for specific gags. Soon after our patient is tucked under his hospital bed covers, he is surrounded by an interesting array of characters.

In the famous movie, "The Godfather," a tale is woven about the American mafia and the lives of the family members and associates of the Godfather, Don Vito Corleone. In the HBO hit series, "The Sopranos," the story details the affairs of Tony Soprano and his family and close colleagues. My favorite scenes in any mafia movie are always the wise guys gathered around the table in some quiet, out-of-the-way Italian restaurant, talking family business over huge plates of pasta and passing the Chianti.

Like everyone who lives in and around Los Angeles I sometimes read scripts. Friends' scripts. TV scripts. Movie scripts. Unfortunate scripts. Painful scripts. How-can-I-everlook-my-friendin-eye-again scripts. It's a sad commentary on our culture that everyone with a Southern California zip code thinks he has the next great blockbuster, or 10, tucked away in a desk drawer. But sadder yet is the fact that these scripts, wretched as they are, are still better than any of mine. But I've found a way to save face, in my own eyes at least.

If you want to see the best holiday pageant of the season, forget dropping $200 a pop at the Ahmanson Theatre for a touring production of “How the Grinch Stole Christmas.” For wit, heart, fun and generosity of spirit, go see Westminster Presbyterian Church’s “Nativity! The Musical,” a hodgepodge of a pageant play that somehow manages to combine Borscht-belt one-liners and pizza delivery boys with the classic Nativity tale. As conceived by entertainment industry veterans Greg Baldwin (“Avatar: The Last Airbender”)
