Judy Olson, director of the Columbia Entertainment Company's presentation of "La Cage aux Folles," watches the cast rehearse from the covert darkness of the theater's back control booth. At the end of one particularly serious scene, Judy shouted for the orchestra to stop playing when the next scene's score began before the stage had been cleared. "I don't want that peppy music playing at such a sad moment," Judy explained when asked when the upbeat tunes should come in. "Wait until he's completely offstage."
