Be the first on your block to predict who'll come out No. 1 in this hot competish. It's the fourth time the room has run it--previous champs Anne Steele, Liz Lark Brown, and T. Oliver Reid claimed the top prize of extended dates in the Metropolitan. If you have any doubts that the town is chock full of talented people needing a break, this will quiet them. By the way, some of the runners-up haven't done badly, either: Carole J. Bufford is now a regular in the Thursday night late show at Feinstein's at Loews Regency.
