Help! Anne Meara is being held prisoner in a Corner Bar on Second Ave.
Maybe that's not quite right - but that is the way it seemed to the comedienne recently as, in a phone conversation, she described the transition from starring in the A. B. C. series, The Corner Bar, to beginning rehearsals for a summer tour in Neil Simon's comedy, "Prisoner of Second Avenue."
"We taped the last of the six shows last night" Ms. Meara said, "and I'm still a little punchy. We had four days of rehears-al to learn 24 minutes of dialog for each show. Now I've got to learn a whole play - 'Second Avenue' - which we're touring to about six summer theaters.
"I'll be working with Jerry (Jerry Stiller, her husband) for the Simon play - last summer we toured in 'The Last of the Red Hot Lovers' - and it will be a change from seeing him in the control booth, where he was for Corner Bar. He was the associate producer for the series.
"I was on one of the Corner Bar programs last summer - and never dreamed I'd wind up being one of the 'proprietors' this season. Now that the six shows are done, we're keeping our fingers crossed - it would be fine if Corner Bar were successful enough to be a possibility for mid-season replacement. We'll see. .
