LA TORTAJADA TYPIFIES
ANDALUSIAN PANTOMIME
Lack of Scenery Shows Spanish
Idea and Calls for Greater
Art from Dancer
When La Tortajada opened her act
at tho Orphoum this week, she occa
sioned somo surprise and keen disap
pointment. Many thought that her
scenery was deficient, and that In soma
respects her act was not up to date.
These facts hold good, If the act bo
considered from the viewpoint of an
American production. But there Is an
other viewpoint, and It la the one that
she and Martin Beck considered when
the act was booked. And that <jther
angle of vision affords one of the most
unique angles that can be Imagined
In the vaudeville game.
Ono of the aims of the Orpheum cir
cuit Is to afford Its patrons glimpses
of foreign acts. These acts are sought
In their native lands, and are import
ed by tho circuit "as thoy stand.'"
Those three words are an essential fea
ture In their contracts. They are not
sought ns American acts at all, and If
they mistakenly Americanize their
work, they lose tho very individuality
that caused their engagement. In oth
er words, Mr. Beck In booking them—
and he personally sees every act he
books abroad—tries to have them
shown on this side exactly as they ap
pear at home. This retains the foreign
ntmosphere, gives us a chance to get a
true view of foreign vaudeville and
often—as in this ense—emphasizes the
superior finish that the home product
must have to succeed.
In Spain, Tortajada is tho very high
est exponent of a very popular class of
amusement—the pantomime dance, or
tabloid drama enacted with dancing as
Its method of expression. No one
equals her in ability along this line,
nor In native popularity. In seeking
the most representative of all these acts
for America, Mr. Beck picked her with
out question. And he took her act In
tact, refusing to allow a single change
In scenery, action or properties. The
result Is that we get Just what Spain
raves over.
True, La Tortajada's scenery Is apt
to evoke a smile from us for its seem
ing crudity. But the Spanish do not
think co. They understand that they
are seeing a pantomimic, symbolic per
formance, and every llttlo detail in
that seemingly heterogeneous mass of
pcenery means something to them.
They do not ask, as do Americans, that
a cathedral, if called for, shall be there
Intact; a mere suggestion of It Is all
they need, and In Imagination they
construct the edifice that Is noted In a
gable end of scenery. E?o on through
tho act. Watch the gallery at tho Or
pheum any night and see how the
"cholos" appreciate and enjoy this net,
and with this explanation in mind, you
poe the wherefor of its seeming crud-
ity.
La Tortajada, as stated, in an ex
ample of the art of vaudeville at its
top notch in Andalusia. As such, it is
a vastly more interesting act as it
stands than if it were Americanized
till the Spanish flavor and atmosphere
-were eliminated, or changed into what
we consider fit settings.
Of course, in thus placing a foreign
act in juxtaposition with the finished
products of America. Mr. Beck takes
a big risk of being misunderstood. He
eaves himself In this and similar cases
by securing only artists who for sheer
ability make a world-appeal. Torta
jada does this; no better singer, danc
er and pantomimist exists, regardless
of her surroundings. Placo her before
a black curtain drop, and she would
tell the same story, just as vividly and
well.
The Theaters
Beats for the engagement of Madame
Nazlmova at Hamburger's Majestic
theater will be placed on Bale at the
box office at 9 o'clock this morning.
Six evening and three afternoon per
formances will be given. On Monday
and Tuesday evenings and Wednesday
afternoon the bill will be Ibsen's
"Littl* Kyolf," on 'Wednesday and
Thursday evenings and Thursday af
ternoon (Thanksgiving day) "A Doll's
j .ouse" is scheduled, and on Friday
and Saturday evenings and Saturday
afternoon "The Fairy Tale" will be
presented.
"The Fortune Hunter" will continue
to make Los Angeles forget its trou
bles for another week, beginning
Monday night, with matinees "Wednes
day, Thursday (Thanksgiving day)
and Saturday. This clever comedy,
which has been commended In tha
highest possible terms by press and
public alike, has caught the popular
fancy, and nightly the Mason is being
taxed to contain the crowds. The en
gagement of "The Fortune Hunter" Is
the first two weeks' engagement the
Mason opera house has ever had. The
popularity of the play, which Is ex
pressed bo well in box office receipts.
Is the best evidence of Manager
Wyatt's Judgment in making the long
booking.
• • •
One of the most important theatrical i
events of the local stock season will I
be "The Case of Sergeant Wilde,"
which will take place on the Eelasco
stage Monday night.
Although Mrs. Wells is a successful
short-story writer, two of her stories
appearing in November periodicals,
"The Case of Sergeant Wilde" is her
first effort in the dramatic field, and
from all indications it will prove un
usually successful for a first attempt
at writing for the stage. Manager
Blackwood is highly enthusiastic over
the new play, a feeling which is shared
in by every member of the Belasco
company. « ■ ■ • ■ i
The new piece of dramaturgy is an
American play with several really
thrilling situations and a love story
-which Manager Blackwood says Is in
comparable. It will allow especially
fine opportunities for strong acting to
Lewis S. Stone, Eleanor Gordon, Frank
Camp, William Yerance and several
others of tho company, while it will
also serve to introduce John J. Ken
nedy to Belasco audiences.
• • • -,
/"Florodora" will close at the Grand
opera house Saturday night, and .Sun
day afternoon Ferris Hartman and his
associates will offer, for the first time
by a stock organization, "The Spring
Chicken." ,
a * •
Seven acts, which promise to ba -up
to the standard set by this week's at
tractions, will open at the Los Angelos
theater with the usual matinee next
Monday. The new bill looks tv be
another example of the excellence of
Sullivan & Considine shows. It Is
headed by Pranklyn Ardell and his
company in the timely political comedy
sketch, "The Suffragette," which has
scored a substantial hit all over the
Sullivan & Conaidlno circuit. Roland
Carter and his company will present
his original musical travesty, "Vaca
tion Time." Others on the program
will be Hetty Urma, ono of England's
foremost malo Impersonators; Christy
La Tortajada, Celebrated Spanish

The sale of seats for the two mati
nee performances of the Countess
Thamara de Swlrsky, which will t;iko
place at the Auditorium next Tuesday
and Friday afternoons, will open at
the Auditorium box office tomorrow
morning.

To those Interested in natural his
tory the management of Pantages
theater will offer a tremendously In
teresting subject next week in the
public appearance of "Alfred the
First," a young, tractable chimpanzee.
"Alfred the First" can do anything
that a human being can do but talk,
and even without this faculty he can
make his desires plainly known. He
can skate, dance, smoke, play a hand
organ and perform other acts which
indicate intelligence akin to human.
Other acts on the same program will be
Edwin Keough, Helen Nelson and
company in an elaborate scenic, cos
tume and electrical production; Billie
and Maud Kellar in a singing and
talking skit- Allen and Lee, comedians
singers and dancers; Delmar and Del
mar, gymnasts, and new moving pic
tures.

"A Grand Army Man" will be the
Burbank bill for next week, and A |
Byron Beasley will return from the
vacation which the two weeks of
musical comedy gave him, to play the
part which was made famous by
David Warfleld. This play was ob
tained from David Belasco by Oliver
Morosco while he was in New York,
and it will be staged with close at
tention to detail, it never has been
attempted previously by any stock
company, as it is one of the most ex
pensive productions ever given, the
royalty being of true Belasco dimen
sions.

Augusta Glose comes to the Or
pheum as headliner for Thanksgiving
week, beginning Monday. Miss Glose
has not been here in some time, but
she is a person not easily forgotten,
and her delightful pianologue.s still are
fresh in the public mind. She comes
again with a new lot of spoken tongs
and imitations, and is assured of a
hearty welcome. Willard Slmma is
another who goes to make up the "one
big laugh" bill for a holiday showing.
Simms, in his wall-paper playlet,
"Flinders Furnished Flat," is one
long scream. Splssell Brothers and
company bring a European novelty,
wherein an Idiotic writer is the ex
cuse for much fun and some clever
work, while Thurber and Madison, in
"On a Shopping Tour," will present
much bright and smart chatter and
song. Tortajada will bo in her last
week, as will "Marse Shelby's Chicken
Dinner, with Mr. Wade and his com
pany.; Qulnn and Mitchell ;inl the
Flying Martins. New pictures will
complete the bill.

Tomorrow afternoon at Temple Aud

work.

LOS AXGELES HERALD: THURSDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 17, 3910.
Music Notes
"Lucia" was given a brilliant produc
tion yesterday afternoon at the Audi
torium by the Bevani opera company,
with the same cast which achieved so
decided a success in the roles earlier in
the engagement. This popular opera
drew a crowded house, and the audi
ence delighted in the florid music. The
familiar but unceasingly popular mad
scene was the occasion of a veritable
triumph for Regina Vlcarino. whose
opening success in Los Angeles was
made in the same role.
The opera last night was Flotow's
beautiful musical gem, "Martha." The
familiar melodies, many of them made
famous by the greatest operatic artists
of the past, were enthusiastically ap
plauded, and the picturesque scenes,
gay costumes and light-hearted frivol
ity of the entire work make it deserv
edly popular.
The cast Included these singers: Lady
Harriette, Guiditta Francini; Nancy,
Edmee de Dreux; Sir Tristan, Jos.
Florlan; tho Sheriff, William Lyons;
Plunkett, Achille Albert!; Lionel, I'm
be.rto Sacchetti; conductor, Roberto
Francini.
Madame Johanna Gadski will be
heard this afternoon In two of her
great Wagnerian scenes, when she
makes her final appearance in Los An
geles for this season. Her concert will
be given at the Auditorium to provide
fitting scenic equipment, and it is ex
pected that members of the Bevanl
opera company will occupy many of
the boxes of the house in compliment to
their distinguished fellow artist.
Madame Gadski will sing Elizabeth's
aria from "Tannhauser," and to close
her program, after several groups of
modern and classic songs, will give a
scene from act 1 and Isolde's "Liebes
tod" from "Tristan and Isolde."
German opera is a rarity in Los An
geles, and an opportunity to hear these
great arias will prove most acceptable
to many admirers of Wagnerian mu
sic. Edwin Schneider will be at the
piano.
Pepito Arriola played last night at
Santa Ana for the Conservatory of
Music, and will give his last concert
in Los Angeles at Simpson auditorium
next Saturday afternoon at 2:30. An
entirely different series of selections
will be used. Students' prices will be
made, as it Is arranged for an educa

SECOND CONVICTION OF
AGED WOMAN CONFIRMED
Mrs. Driggs Suffers with Serious
Heart Trouble, but Must
Go to Prison
The district court of appeals in a
decision handed down yesterday af
firmed the judgment of the lower
courts in the conviction of Mrs. Ger
trude Drlggs, 60 years old, whose trial
on a charge of forgery dragged
through the superior court two years.
Mrs. Drigsrs was sentenced to serve
five years in the San Quentln peni
tentiary for the forgery of the name
of John G. Charnock, a rancher of
Palms, to a lease to 137 acres of land
in that vicinity with an option to pur
chase. She appealed her case and
was granted a new trial. She was
tried on the charge in Judge Davis
court and convicted, receiving a pen
itentiary sentence.
The case was appealed six months
ago and the decision rendered yester
day practically abolishes all hope the
woman may have had of regaining her
liberty. She has been at liberty un
der heavy ball.
During the period of her imprison
ment in the county jail during her
first trial the aged woman received
the sympathy and support of Mrs. Hes
ter T. Griffith of the W. C. T. U.
Considerable Interest was aroused
among the various organizations in
her case and her release was tem
porarily obtained through the testi
mony of physicians that her heart was
twice its normal size and that im
prisonment would ultimately result in
her death.
