RAY MANCINI DOCUMENTARY

From "Rocky" to "Raging Bull" to "Million Dollar Baby," some of the greatest movies ever made have been boxing movies. But sometimes life itself is more dramatic, as in the story of Ray "Boom Boom" Mancini. He fought his way out of the crumbling mill town of Youngstown in the early '80s, becoming the world lightweight boxing champ; he was hailed by some as the savior of boxing.

Then came a brutal 1982 fight in Las Vegas, where his challenger, a 23-year-old Korean named Duk Koo Kim, went down in the 14th round and never got back up. Several months later, Kim's grieving mother killed herself. Mancini's blamed himself.

On June 20, the Hollywood Theater in Dormont will screen "The Good Son: The Ray Mancini Story" at 7:30 p.m., before it opens in New York or Los Angeles. Mancini will attend, and host a Q&A after the film. Tickets are $7.

CLO PRESENTS 'PHANTOM'

There's more than one way to spin a story.

Pittsburgh Civic Light Opera will be doing just that from June 21 to 30 with its production of "Kopit & Yeston's Phantom."

Back in the early 1980s, after winning the 1982 best musical Tony for "Nine," Maury Yeston and Arthur Kopit created a musical based on Gaston Leroux's "The Phantom of the Opera." But before they could bring it to the Broadway stage, Andrew Lloyd Webber's version took London by storm, and its producers announced plans to bring it to New York.

Leroux's story of the mysterious, disfigured man who lives beneath the Paris Opera and mentors the opera's ingenue, Christine Daae, forms the spine of both musicals. But there are enough theatrical and musical differences between the two stage versions to make it of interest to those who know the Webber version as well as newcomers.

Pittsburgh CLO first produced the Kopit and Yeston musical during its 1998 season, and it's being brought back by popular demand with a cast of Broadway performers and CLO regulars.

Appearing in the title role is Ron Bohmer, a Broadway veteran who played the Phantom in the first national tour of Webber's musical. …
