her to the footlights at least a dozen

but "Suzanne'' it, not up to the Broad
Mrs. Patrick Campbell is. a competent
actress, but "The Foolish Virgin" will
never please an American audience. It
is folly to present French plajs. in this
country irrespective of their fitness, and
in this case, in a cast that docs not
comprehend the meaning of lines or situ
ations. Mrs. Campbell, in the role of a
neglected wife, is not convincing. At
times she shows power, but at others
aUs is though uncertain of "where she
is at." The play itself will never appeal
to the American public, and In this
sense Is a failure. Mrs Campbell wears
several nifty gowns amid shabby, sur
roundings. One scene, an interior. Is so
badly painted and in such poor taste
that It's no wonder the Virgin fled from

The presentation at the Columbia
Theater next week of Porter Emerson
Brownc' famous play, "The Spend
thrift," gives local theatergoers an op
portunitv of witnessing this great drama
tic success with the powerful cast that
presented It for five months at the Hud
son Theater in New York. This excep
tion il company Includes Robert T.
Haines, who was with Viola Allen In
'The Palace of the King." who also
plajed in "The Dirling of the Gods" and
with Mrs. Fiske, and last year was with
Nazlmova at her theater In New York.
Miss Thais Mtprrane. t'le beautiful and
clever young California actress, who rose
to fame in a single night in the part she
plays in this production is also a mem
ber of the cast, as l& Mattie Ferguson,
who will be remembered as the negro
mammy in the original "Polly of the Cir
cus" company: Miss Vivian Martin, who
is recognized as the prettiest ingenue on
the American stage; T. Daniel Frawlpy,
the Pacific Coast producer, who was en
gaged by Mr. Thompson to play a char
acter part: Sumner Gard, Robert Cain,
and Grace Gibbs.
The interest of an Important section
of the theater-going public Is occupied
with the coming of Washington's pet
comedians, David Montgomery and Fred
A. Stone, who will begin a week's en--
gagement at the National Theater on
Monday, January 9. presenting here for
the second time "The Old Town,' the
George Ade musical comedy. In which
they have won most of New York's fa
vor during the long engagement at Mr.
Dillingham's new Globe Theater last sea
son. The mere announcement of Mont
gomery and Stone Is usually quite suffi
cient to Insure a series of large and en
thusiastic audiences, for, as the gentle
man of the, pavement phrases It, "they
made their number good" in this town
a good many years ago. For those who
have not seen "The Old Town" It may be
weir to say that it is an exceptionally
bright musical comedy, written by George
Ade especially for Montgomery and
Stone, with a' number of catchy musical
numbers by Gustav Luders and -others.
Primarily It is a "dancing show." From
Montgomery and 8 tone down, to the lit
tlest chorus girl everybody "dances, and
most' of the dancing is of extraordinary
merit. Mr. Dillingham promises an elab
orate production and a company of spe
cially chosen artists for the congenial
impersonation of Mr. -Ade's characters.
Important principals In the cast are Al-
jlene Crater, Flossie Hope, May Ellison,
Dundas, Charles Dox. Lyndon LawW.
J. McCarthy, and Melville 'Stewart.

"The Man froTi Home." Miss Irwin has
been appearing successfully- at Wallack's
Theater in this tomedy and the critics
have generally agreed that in the part of
Mrs. Jim Griggs, which she assumes, the
star has one of the best opportunities of
her career and makes the most of it.
Perhaps the fact that "Getting a Polish"
was written with a view to fitting the
personality of Miss Irwin may have
something to do with it. Liebler &. Co,
who are managing Miss Irwin, have
made the production with their usual
painstaking care. The play Is handsome
ly staged and Miss Irwin, has an excel
lent supporting cast.
