Valley Players to Watch: Sondheimer's List--(November 25, 1997)

Seems that we were wrong about the Times in our San Fernando article: They do have Sondheimer's preview up in the online version of the Times; but you better catch it quick, or go out and buy the print version, because the articles are only kept a few days, and then they are transferred over to the archives where it'll cost you a buck an article to get the info. Along with the San Fernando preview, Sondheimer also published his list of "Players to Watch" in the Valley. Some of them we've profiled, others we will. Anyway, here's Sondheimer's list:
