"THE RICH MR. HOGGENHEI
MER." It is hard to breathe new life into
an old character, but Mr. Harry B.
Smith, who has transplanted Mr. Sam
Bernard's funny Dutchman from
"The Girl From Kays" to "The
Rich Mr. Hoggcnhcinicr " has suc
cessfully accomplished the feat with
MV. Bernard's broken-dialect assist
ance, of course.
The new piece, for which Mr. Lud
wig Englandcr has spun a melodic
drapery is now installed on broad
way, where it bids fair to become
one of the most popular musical-comedies
of the season, ranking second
only to "The Red Mill."
As iroggenheimer, Mr. Bernard
impersonates a festive London mil
lionaire who comes to America, os
tensibly to rescue his son from the
clutches of an adventuress, but real
ly to escape the results of one of his
own indiscretions. On the ship he
falls into the same snare of a design
ing actress and his peace is further
disturbed b,y his suspicious wife, of
whose presence on the same vessel
he is, for a time, in joyful ignorance.
nr It is lucky for Mr. Bernard that so
clever an actress as Miss Georgia
Caine is his right bower this season.
His best opportunities for fun come
late in the piece, and as Flora Fair,
the actress, Miss Caine keeps the
interest alive until the star gets his
running start down the ship's gang
plank at the Hbbokcn docks.'
From this moment, however, the
piece fairly bulges with hilarity.
The adventures of the guileless,
boastful Hoggcnheimer, and his
thirteen trunks, with rapacious cus-
tom's house inspectors, his effort to
edit the cablegram to his wife, and
New York cabman to escape the ang-
Iry Mrs. Hoggenheimer's wrath are
After Mr. Iloggcnhcinvcr becomes
a waiter in order to rob his son at a
dinner given in honor of the wed-
ding. Having embroiled himself var
iously and ridiculously in many mis
haps he eventually discovers that his
to-be daughter-in-law is a most cir
cumspect person whom he can use
to pave his way into societey.
The settings arc uncommonly in
teresting and there is not a moment
when the animate scenery Jtlic thor
ns is not attractive. A dozen of the
songs seem to have caught the popu
lar fancy, notably Miss Caine's "Don't
you Want to Buy a Paper?" and
"Poker Love," a ditty accompanied
by a charming dance. Mr. Bernard
has no songs in the piece and great
is the rejoicing on that account.
"THE BLUE MOON."
Mr. James T. Powers may well be
envious of Mr. Bernard. His new
musical comedy, "The Blue Moon,"
at the Casino is another of those
idcaless, tuneless jumbles of stereo
typed nonsense by a syndicate of Eng
lish composers and librettists that
hardly succeed in raising one legiti
mate laugh through an entire evening
