The following Is from the A". )'. 11'otM,
ol September, Kith.
The rcorcning of the Lyceum Theatre
laH night was nttemkil with much etui-
osity. uml was productive of much pleas-
uio. Theiu was a notable assemblage
present, composed In great pail of social
ami art mammies. A crca
nates. a great nuinucr ol
inlluentlal pationsofthe drama were con
spicuous In theboesand In thcpanpiette,
and the audience had that line, select and
distinguished coloi which, so far this sea
son, has been absent from all the earllei
openings. The opening picsented Mr.
Mackaye's work in Ihe shape of a verv
liberal adaption of Sordau's "Andiea,r'
with the lltlo of "In Spite of all" in
which Miss Minnie Moduern played the
role of the wife, foriuely acted ly Miss
Agnes Ethel. When we come to speak
ol the acting of tills play, wehaveto deal
with the unique qualities which Miss
Maddern, for the second lime in New
lork, presents to us, ami which, uufor
tunatcly for the stage, arc very lare indeed
of her o
n, upon the sensibility of he'r
md iSstentrs, ami lo do Ihe most
mnrvclously subtle, Kndei bits of ncttnir
which it has ever been our good fortune
to see. Tims, for example, she last night
conveyed in her own way the heart-broken
condition of the wile, the deep abid
ing lovo of the woman and the tender
ness, sweetness and exquisite delicacy of
the lover, without owe overstepping the
limits of naturalness, or even using n sin
gle theatrical device, so that at the end of
tho thlul act. Undine: that all her ellorts
to reclaim the man she loves were Unit-
less, and that ho hail deserted her inn
moment for another woman, she stood
nlone in the middle of tlie stage, lifted
her eyes and clasped hands, and In one
great paio.ysm of despair that touched
everybody, simply acknowledged that she
had lost eveivlhing, and fell swooning to
the lloor. No amount of theatrical cul-
IU1C or MllLiu uuilliiuu ui iiuiuiL-iiiii; iiuu
could have enhanced thisscLiie one iota.
It was the outcome of n woman's heait ex-
hlbited without any waste of material,
which we dellbeiately lake pains to asseit
Is not only Ihe economy of ait, but thetrl-
umph of genius Plmilaily, all through
the elements which caught and held her
audience, where the tenflerness, sineerity
nnd purity, never once veiging upon what
was melo-diamatlc. In tho nitempt to
in nei nubuanu naeie oy an me eaiiier
association ol theii love, she went lo tho
piano and sang "Tho Day That You'll
Forget Me" in a most cMiaoulinaiy man
ner, a little ditty without the (.lightest
claims to xorallsm, but which was so
freighted w lib leeling and palpitated to
honestly with the loe and fidelity of a
henit torn at the veiy moinentwitli anio
ty, tliat her audience felt her magic pow.
cr, and gnve her tlie veiy highest tribute
of bedlmmed lyes and tiiiobbing bieasts.
