Play memory: Philadelphia Young Playwrights and the Free Library of Philadelphia are honoring the dramatic legacy of Nessa Forman, the late Evening Bulletin arts editor, WHYY-TV12 corporate communications vice president and -- especially close to PYP's and FLP's hearts -- board member of both orgs. Events are scheduled on March 10 at the library on the Parkway. ...

The Philadelphia story: Joseph Neubauer and Aileen Roberts -- both bigtime backers of the Barnes Foundation's move into the city as well as Barnes board members -- have been named winners of the 90-year-old Philadelphia Award, to be presented this spring, which dovetails with the re-opening of the Barnes alongside such cherished treasures as the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Rodin on the Parkway. ...

Getting a head start in 2012 is Drexel University's Donald N. Bersoff, voted in as 2013 president of the American Psychological Association. ...

Meanwhile, say those who took part in a patients' poll: Dr. Bruce H. Levin of Philly's Pennsylvania Spine and Headache Center is among the tops in the nation, a winner of the 2011 Patients' Choice Award. ...

They know beans about service, after all: Jeffrey Bronstein of Quakertown is among the longtime employees recently honored by the Fred Beans Auto Group for service extraordinaire. Obviously, he passed inspection with flying colors. ...

Philly's Izzy Edwin Leopold sure left quite a comic imprint on the world of entertainment. Of course, many outside his old nabe back in the late 1800s knew him better by his show biz name, which makes Garry Berman's new biog all the more exciting: The Perfect Fool: The Life and Career of Ed Wynn is now on area bookshelves. ...

Mural, mural on the wall, who's the most picturesque of them all? Marc Brownstein, Susanna E. Lachs, Peter Gross, Lynn K. Manko and David Brown may answer with some splashes of color now that they're serving on the board of the Philadelphia Mural Arts Advocates. ...

Too cool for school? Not Philly's Michael Berenbaum, whose latest film project as editor, So Undercover, stars Miley Cyrus and takes place in a college sorority. ...

So you think you're smart? Who says? Answer: Philadelphia SmartCEO Magazine, which named these Flaster/Greenberg lawyers as 2011 Legal Elite: Mitchell R. Cohen, Abbe F. Fletman, Peter R. Spirgel, Tami Bogutz Steinberg and Alan H. Zuckerman. ...

Lawyered up: Leonard P. Goldberger of Stevens & Lee's legal eagles was named recipient of the Faculty Service, Outstanding Educator Award of the Insurance Society of Philadelphia, where he's taught a course for the past decade. ...

Again with the lawyers? Professor Donald Bersoff of the Drexel U. Earle Mack School of Law recently returned from the European Congress of Psychology in Istanbul, where he spoke at a symposium on "Teaching and Learning to Be an Ethical and Competent Psychologist in a Globalizing World." ...

That Princeton, N.J., tigress of a performer Bebe Neuwirth -- who just happens to be the star of this spring's Gershman Y benefit -- has come out with her first album, Porcelain. Such a startling revelation must have turned Lilith's face white.
