There are shows and shows. Some are of the kind that one pre
sentation is sufficient for the average playgoer, while there are others
of which the public never tire. In the latter class "The Man of the
Hour" may be safely placed. It was just as interesting, absorbing and
enjoyable as last year. Even more enjoyable, in fact, for there were
many little points that were more clearly brought out by the repetition.
The company is practically the same as the one of last season, which is
equivalent to saying that every character was portrayed in a manner
which was satisfying and would be difficult to improve upon. There
was the same political grafter, brusque, brutal and determined to rule
or ruin, and the little Irish alderman who succeeded in "dropping
something" on his old-time enemy. This same little alderman (Felix
Haney) read the election returns from the stage on Tuesday night, and
that alone was worth the price of admission. The man is a natural
born comedian. Ruby Bridges, as Dallas Wainwright, is not only
convincing and forceful, but is beautiful as well. And, by the way, the
other feminine members of the company are all that could be desired
as to dramatic worth and personal appearance. While the Alwyn
Bennett of William Lamp is not as forceful as that of his predecessor,
there is really no fault to find with him. Capacity houses greeted the
company, just as will be the case next year, and for many years to
come, such is the hold "The Man of The Hour" has secured upon
those who appreciate a real, stirring, powerful drama.
It would be a difficult matter for one to remember for any length
of time, much less intelligently describe, all of the pleasing occurrences
in "The Land of Nod," but as this big musical extravaganza was evi
dently designed as a care-killer, and is succeeding in its mission, what's
the odds. Catchy music, genuinely funny comedians, graceful dancing,
and a bevy of pretty, shapely girls, against a background of as clever
a stage setting as one could ask for, makes an evening's entertainment
that is worth one's while. There is such an abundance of mirth and
music, with such a gorgeousness of costumes, and pretty women and
clever men, that it leaves one's head in a whirl. It is an immensely
enjoyable show, and had the company showed at the Theatre for a
week, instead of two performances on Thursday, it is possible that the
house would have been comfortably filled at each performance.
This is the first week of the enlarged program at the Orpheum,
there being seven numbers besides the orchestra selection, a descrip
tive fantasy, "A Day at West Point," and the kinodrome pictures. A
well balanced bill, made up of three acrobatic turns, some clever danc
ing and pleasing- singing, and a playlet peculiarly' appropriate to the
season. "Superstition," presented by Charles W. Bowser, Miss Edith
Ilinkle and Frederick E. Duff, has to do with politics and political
grafting. It is not only cleverly written but well acted; a story with
characters all of nature's stamp. A politician, a newspaper reporter
and a handsome astrologer arc the characters, each being presented in
a manner that leaves no room for adverse criticism. In "The Clown's
Dream" George Hermann and Park Byers have a spectacular panto
mime that is simply great. Hermann has a gruesome make-up, but
gives one of the most startling expositions of what a contortionist may
accomplish that has ever been seen in this city, while Byers is far
from slow as a slack wire artist. Charmion, who poses as the most
perfectly developed woman in the world, has some new trapeze tricks,
and a rather startling disrobing act, accompanying her performance
with a rapid-fire of witticisms, concluding by showering the audience
with photo buttons and miniature mirrors. Another excellent acro
batic performance is the "In Africa" absurdity, by the four Rinos, old
favorites who have presented the same act here before. Rogers and
Decley, in "The Singer and His Valet," are the singers of the week's
bill, and are well worth while. Dick Lynch, the "classy dancer," is
back again, with his droll stories and burlesque illustrated songs, and
is just as enjoyable as of old. The one weak spot in the bill is the
singing and dancing of the three Mitchells.
"The Pride of New York," the attraction at the Grand .this week,
has evidently been wrongly labeled. It reminds one of some of the
attractions found on the midway at a summer carnival. The musical
