A return engauement, the spark
flag musical play, "Alma, Where Do
You LIve?" Is announed as the open
lag attraction at the fashionabla Tu
lan Theatre, commencing Sunday
nisht, Sept. 22nd. Originating n
France and running for an entire sea
son in German in New York, "Alma,
Where Do You Live?" was made into
English by George V. Hobart at the
Instigation of Joseph M. Weber and
had a successul season at Weber's
own theatre, on Broadway. It is farci
cal in nature, the original book by
Paul Herve with music by Jean Bri
quet, while in the original "Alma" was
probably rather frisky, it has been
somewhat tamed in the English adap
tation but still preserves enough p1
quancy to make it interesting and
amusing. The story has been-cleverly
written but the real charm lies in the
beautiful mus'c, every number being
tuneful and catchy, so much so that
the audience invariably leaves the the
atre humming or whistling the strains
of "Alma, Where Do You Live?" The
story told is of Pierre, a country boy
who will inherit a large fortune if he
makes no matrimonial proposal before
reaching his majority. Should he do
so the money is to go to others. He
comes to Paris to hear the reading of
the will, the day before he is of age,
and it is then that he first hears of
the legacy and its conditions. Alma,
a little milliner, is hired by others
who would benefit to trap the boy into
a proposal but she really falls in love
with Pierre and prevents this dire ca
lamity until after the time has elapsed
when she finally accepts him. The
leading characetr, that of Alma, In the
present production will be played by
Miss Grace Drew, a beautiful young
woman of the blonde type who, it is
said, fits the character to perfection.
Miss Drew last season sang the lead
ing role in "The Chocolate Soldier"
and it is claimed she possesses a beau
tiful soprano voice of remarkable tex
ture and range. Others in the com
pany are Carlton King, Chas. P. Orr,
Henry Sherwood, John Mundinger,
Herbert Heywood, Edward Nagle, J.
Herbert Crowley, Bertha Whitney, Ma
rie Anals and Dorothy Lewis.
