BROAD "Lady Windermere's Fan." Revival
of Oscar Wilde's satire by Margaret Anglin.

Margaret Anglin in Notable Revival
Margaret Anglin 1b ono of tho really com
paratively fow great living actresses. On
speaks of "great living actresses" tho majority
of great actresses, of course, being dend. The
samo Is Inevitably true of great, very great,
However, Miss Anglin Is very much alive so
much so that her husband figures In automo
bllo arrests while Blio, herself, revives a play
written by ono of tho most brilliant men of
the century a man to whom, lying in a grave
In Montmartre, has como a full and deserved
recognition for surpassing wit and genius.
"Lady Windermere's Fan," In which Miss
Anglin appeared last night at tho Broad Street
Theatre, is a play of admirablo technique, an
evening's dramatic menu in which every course
Is Eorvcd with tartar sauce. There has never
been n more seductive, a more subtle, a more
delightfully worldly Mrs. Erlynno than tho ono
presontod by Miss Anglin. Miss Anglin makes
that brilliant woman, of a dubious character,
really winning. On tho stage this typo usually
isn't. In Wildo's play this woman, tragical in
her life, becomes a mother desirous of protect
ing her child. Mrs. Erlynne is perhaps tho
most appealing character in the Wilde plays.
As such. Miss Anglin played tho part with an
Intellectual understanding, an artistic restraint
which Wilde himself would havo admired.
If "Lady Windermere's Fan" Is already an
anachronism so far as upper Fifth avenuo or
Rittenhouse Squaro are concerned, Its satire
on social and human frailty Is quite as apropos
ns when Wlldo wroto It. As a play It is far
superior to the Eugene Walter and 'Gus Thomas
productions as they attempt to deal, seriously
or otherwise, with social and other problems.
Miss Anglln's cast Is admirable. Ruth Holt
Bouclcault Is a selntillant Duchess of Berwick.
Florenco Carpenter, ns Lady Windermere, was
Insinuatingly captivating. While Sidney Green
street played Lord Lorton Incomparably, there
havo been much better Lord Wlndermeres than
that enacted by Leonard Willey, the heralded
Australian star. Mr. Willey was a bit too In
tense too Intense, you know. Altogether, Miss
Anglln's revival Is notable. It Is perhaps one
of tho best. If not tho best, presentation of
Oscar Wilde's delectable play.
A Striking Miracle Play
"Pilate's Daughter," tho miracle play by
Francis L. Kenzel, a Roman Catholic priest,
was produced last night at the Chestnut Street
Opera House. One of tho unique features of
the production is that there are no mala char
acters In It.
Apart from tho spectacular aspects of tho
piny, It has a strong religious appeal the ap
peal of such plays ns "Ben Hur" and "The Sign
of tho Cross." "Pilate's Daughter" Is founded
on tho old letjend relating to the daughter of
Pontius Pilate. According to tills, Claudia, the
daughter of tho proconsul, threw a rose from
her bnlrony as Christ was being led to Calvary.
The (lower touched his garment, and although
it wns trod upon by hundreds when the glri
recovered it. the rose still bloomed.
Ten years later the perpetually blooming rose
was used to work miracles. A spring Is made
to gush out of the stone prison wall where the
Christian women are held; a dead child Is
brought to life; reason Is restored to an unfor
tunate woman stricken mad at tho time of the
Violet de Blcarrl takes the part of Claudia,
Pilate's daughter, in the first act. and the role
of later jears, when the girl has grown to
womanhood, Is n6sumed by Constance Moli
noaux, who displayed consummate skill. Miss
Mollneaux's work at all times bore the stamp
of sincerity, especially In her eloquently de
livered prayers. ,
Marion Barney, an old friend of Philadelphia
Playgoers, was welcomed back In dual roles,
first as Claudia Proclea. the wife of Pontius
Pilate. later as Agrlpplna, the wife of Caesar,
Although neither part was of a nature to bring
out her accomplishments to the best, she acqult
ter herself admirably. Margaret Vryllng, as the
Roman sorceress, made tho most of the situa
tions that fell to her. In fact, all the members
of the exceptionally large cast were excellent.
Considerable attention has been given to the
scenery and properties. Some of the spectacu
lar effects achieved are remarkable. A curious
nnd striking lapse Is made, however, In the
handling of the Crucifixion In tho second sceno
of act 1, when tho Christ Is shown without the
thieves that, according to Biblical history, were
crucilied on either side of the Saviour.
Valeska Surratt at Keith's
Valeska Surratt, who replaced Mr. and Mrs.
Vtrnan Castle at Keith's yesterday, Is notable
for her gowns principally. Miss Surratt's
gowns are wonderful. They nre worth buying
a soat to see. They arc the sort you cannot
urrtinarlly behold In shop windows. There's a
porwonallty about them. The personality may
he bUarre but then there are things one wants
to seo at least onco In a lifetime.
Miss Surratt, it must be said, l an extraor
dinary dancer. She possesses a sense of rhythm
which places her almost In the class of niusl.
clans. There is something musical, even la
her most vigorous caort!nss. She Is de
cldedly interesting Ono would not call her an
actress, nnd her voice Is one of the most un
appealing ever heard on the stage. But her
personality Is distinct, anything but nebulous,
and her scenic settings are always striking!
Miss Surratt nppears In "Black Crepe and
Diamonds," a modernized symbolic act reml
ntscent of "Hverywoman." Tha PaM. .
obliged to cancel their engagement because of j
tna uiness or .sirs, eastie. The Castles are
peiliaps, tho most famed, as well as most
popular dancers In America. If the truth be
told, young Jack Mann, who turkey-trots )n
Miss Surratt's act. Is us notable a dancer In
his way as Vernon Castle. He Is not quite so
dignified, to be sure, but he Is more agile
even more graceful His debut-lf it be a debut
-Is notable. For he Is one of the best dancers
that has ever appeared on the stauo
Tho contrasts of audevilto are as striking '
as they are amazing. Miss Jane Connelly and I
company appeared in an a-yclept "a comedy I
cX modern lixv whlca to succwsnij poly ja '
boring one. It Is a high-water mark of
banality and bathos, and n. type of tho sort
of thing which makes ono wonder nt the tern
pornry mental comas of vaudeville malingers.
On the other hand, tho rest of tho Keith hill
can only arouse ndmlratloti for tho Intelligent
selection. It Is hugely entertaining. Mao Mel
ville Is ns delightfully funny ns ever. Paul
Perclra, the court violinist of Portugal, gives
testimony to tho taste of dethroned kings. Ho
Is a musician of raro ability, nnd Nevin'."
"Rosary" was never played with more feeling,
restrained passionate pathos, than It la by
Pcrclrn. Edwin George listed as an "almost
Juggler" juggles as entertainingly with light
talk as with tin plates and rubber balls. Ho
Is genuinely diverting.
"Nearly Married" nt the Garrick
Governor Toner, of the sovereign State of
Pennsylvanln, aided nnd nbetted an elopement
Inst night. This In Itself wns reprehensible
enough, but his full Iniquity wll bo understood
when It Is announced that tho elopement was
between n man and his own wife. Just what
excuse tho president of the National League will
mako remains to be seen. But nsldc from thl"
ofnclal faux pas, "Nearly Married," which came
back to the Garrick last night with a cast new,
with tho exception of the star, Bruce McRae,
proved a pleasant entertainment.
Tho main criticism of the piny, which has
been reviewed before. Is Its exceeding sllmness.
If brevity be the soul of wit, then "Nearly Mnr
rled" Is tho wittiest play of the ages, for It
lasted Just ono hour and 27 minutes. It began
nt half-past 8 and finished at half-past 10, with
two lC-mlnutc Intermissions.
Bruco McRne, who Is a living duplicate In
looks nnd manners and speech of Archie Gunn,
the artist, was a bit heavy In the rolo of tho
bedeviled husband. Hnttlo King, the profes
sional corespondent, was fairly true to life,
though a bit hard. Gertrude Robinson nnd John
McCabe, ns tho other wedded couple, did well,
as did Dick Giffon as the obnoxious brother.
Smaller parts wefo played, and played well, by
Dclmar E. Clark as the East Indlnn, Beatrice
Ingram as his Irish wife, John Sparks as tho
Justlco of peace, and Danny Day as the chauf
feur. Antoinette Walker was Betty Lindsay, the
Taken all In all, "Nearly Married" Is a merry
comedy, broad nt times, but entertaining never
theless, but too brief withal, save for tho In
excusably long Intermissions.
Cartoon Pictures in a Play
Thousands of persons have laughed at George
McMnnus' "Bringing Vp Father" cartoons.
The experiment of taking such burlesque draw
Irgs and making them Into a musical comedy is
Interesting. In tho case of the musical farce
comedy which opened last night at the Walnut
the feat haB been accomplished successfully.
The comedy Is Indeed as laughable as the popu
"Father," very tough. Initiated Into society by
"mother"; a bogus count trying to get "father"
to Invest In a radium mine, nnd Tom Hamilton,
"father's" business partner, nre among the In
imitably funny characters that go to mako the
play one prolonged side-splitting evening's
While there is little plot to the comedy, It Is
replete with jokes nnd good songs. Of these
