AH, GRACIE: George Burns, still the showman at 95, solos tonight at the Performing Arts Center (some tickets remain). For years, he was second banana to his late wife, Gracie Allen. He’s written of her: “Holding hands, we got to center stage, I’d say, ‘Gracie, how’s your brother?’ and she spoke for 38 years. That’s how I became a star. It wasn’t easy; sometimes I forgot to say, ‘Gracie, how’s your brother?’ ”
