Little Theatre 'The Rivals"
War's Effect on Theatrical World
Of all professions of modern life, the stage
Is nt least one that has preserved something
of tho glamour of romance. To tho average
man the world behind tho footlights Is one of
fascination nnd mystery, "with a touch of the
vaguely comprehended piquant. However, no
profession ever moro needed a roseate Illusion,
and especially these days. There nre few pro
fessions that call for more sacrifices, that ne
cessitate more vicissitudes of comfort If not
fortune, than the theatrical. Success Is
nchloved only by years of effort nnd training
usually, nnd the major planets are compara
tively few In the congested constellations,
which nre Indeed more like the heavenly nebula
At this tlmo the theatrical profession Is In
n more parlous state than It has been for
many years. To visit tho managerial offices
along Broadway Is to witness, and distress
ingly, one of the multitudinous effects of the
war. "At no time," said a New York man
ager yesterday, "wore more theatrical people
out of n Job during the season. As n matter
of fact many are practically starving." Be
cause of the war, there hac been, too, an Influx
of English actors.
"Some years ago the stage doors were
thronged with the various types of Johnnies,"
said a popular musical comedy star playing on
42d street. "Now, when I leave the theatro,
there are only actors waiting at the stage en
trance to make n 'touch. Every night I give
away nt lenst ?3 In quarters. Tho situation
Is really pathetic."
Nor nre the minor nctors or chorus nlone af
fected by the bad business. Stars are looking
for positions. A well-known actor, .whose sal
ary averages about $200 a week when engnged,
wns In a show that lasted Just three weeks.
This wa's his only engagement In an entire
year. His earnings therefore nmounted to
$600. He spent the last summer In Europe nnd
came back, expecting n season's engagement,
From a drnmntlc and nrtlstlc standpoint
there were never better productions In New
York thnn at the present time. Yet the
majority are playing nt n financial loss. Not
moro than a half-dozen plays near Broadway
nre fortunate In drawing crowded homes
nightly, nnd of these the notable successes nre
"Chln-Chln," "Tho Girl From Utah." "The
Miracle Man" and "Under Cover." Neverthe
less, managers nre hopeful, nnd nctors, great
and small, optimistically occupy the benches
of offices waiting for engagements. "We nre
looking for a boom nlong toward spring," de
clared ono of the biggest producers, "for we
feel that the present conditions simply ennnot
