TIhat the eyes of the theatrical
,orld will be turned on New Orleans
te week of October 14, is indicated
b the announcement that Jefferson de
ngels, the musical comedy star, will
begin his vaude'ville tour in this city
M that date, presenting the nautical
re, "All at Sea," at the Orpheum.
Mr. de Angeles is one of the last of
*e old guard to harken to the call of
Basging Director Martin Beck of the
Orpheum Circuit, and the first of the
rs to begin his tour in this city.
The obtaining of his signature to a
.atract for a tour of the Orpheum
Chuilt is another of the triumphs of
-a-aging Director Martin Beck, and
esaclusive evidence of his determina
tin to give the patrons of the Or
heum theatres the very best the
mosement market affords. It is prob
aly superfluous to comment on the
bility of Jefferson de Angeles. Fo_;
a quarter of a century he has held the
weter of the stage, and in that time
has delighted thousands of theatre
pers in every important city in the
-entry. It is to his credit that he has
sever been connected with a failure
and never associated with even a me
cre production. tIls name has been
uon"ymous with merit, and it is a
mrtainty that he will maintain this
g adard in embarking in a new field
"All at Sea" is said to be a bright
I+ze comedy and a veritable musical
pm. While Mr. de Angeles will, of
re, be the center of attraction, he
w1i be supported by a company of un
--al excellence. His first appearance
PI be at the matinee next Monday,
mi the usual two performances each
by will be given during the week.

"THE CONFESSION" NEXT WEEK
AT THE CRESCENT.
"The Confession," the latest offering
from the pen of James Halleck Reid.
author of "Hluman Hearts," will be the
attraction at the Crescent Theatre next
week, commencing Sunday night, after
a long and successful engagement at
the Bijou Theatre, on Broadway, in
"The Confession" uses in its theme
life's most vital subjects, telling a story
that is consistent, interesting and with
a strong uplift. A priest, a mother, a
sweetheart and an innocent maln c)ll
demned to death are among the cen
tral figures of this play of to-day. It is
claimed that no more absorbing tra
gtedy has ever been conceived nor great
er stage picture and lesson ever pre
sented. The subject produces material
for a play that would be of unus+al in
terest and unlike anything else ever
produced. Mr. James Halleck Reid has
submitted his play to the public, firm
in the belief that the much abused the
atre-goer would welcome a play with
real life interest, dramatic worth. con
sistency of plot and literary merit. To
this end has he labored. The locale of
the play is placed at G;loucester.
Charleston and Boston. Massachusetts.
Jhe scenes are the rectory of "Our I:ldy
of Mercy" church. Gloucester, the Ire'
liminary court room, in the same city,
the prison at Charleston and the Gov
ernor's office at Boston. The time of
the play is the present. There is a
very pretty love story and a delicious
vein of comedy running through the
play that relieves its tenser moments.
FISKE O'HARA COMING TO TIlE
"The Rose of Kildare" is the title of
the new Irish romantic play in which
Augustus Pitou, Jr., is presenting
Fiske O'Hara this season. It tells a
story of love and hatred in the Green
Isle during the troublous times in the
latter part of the eighteenth century
and life is depicted with a vividness
and truth that make the performance
interesting from an historical point of
view as well as from the dramatic.
The basic theme of the piece is a love
story. What Irish play would be ac
cepted as such without a love theme of
primary interest? That most poetic
spot, the border of Wicklow and Kil
dare, has been chosen by the astute au
thors as the place where the action of

the play takes place. And then there
are a number of Irish songs, written
with an idea of ftnes. for the situa
tions In the play, and sung as only O'(
Hara on using them. Of course, the
scenery, depleting such a plcturesque
locale as that In which the story is sup
posed to move, Is a delight to the eye
and the costumes are rich and abso
lutely correct The company Is said to
be a fine one. Mr. O'Hara comes to the

the week, commencing October 20th.

"THE QUAKER GIRL"
When "T'he Quaker Girl," the three
act musical comedy which has been the
talk of three continents for the past
three years, comes to the Tulane Thea
tre the week of October 20th, the thea
tre-goers of New Orleans will be greet
ed fith more surprises in the course of
the entertainment than they will have
thought possible in one production. In
the first place, the title is somewhat
Secelving. One would naturally expect
oamething rather pretty but a trifle
lame and dull from such a nomencla
taure sad the faeet that it is an angish
production might lead some to believe
that it couldn't be very amusing, esp
ially to an American audience. But
La both easesr there is another "think"
cominl. according to all reports. This
particduear Quaher girl is the prettlest.
brghtest. reeslest little thing that

iins iand lent away to see the tworld
iler "Tony. front Ainerica." is irre
I pressible. Another great song hit of
ihe production is "Coiie to the BHall." a
hatuntingly beautiful waltz. The whole
play is a icllibiination of pretty faces,
alchly Illtsic of the kind that sets iv
errybody whisiting and hunmming, and
the cleverest kind of dancing. Victtor
IMorley plays the role of Tony Chute
and .iss Natalie Alt has the title role.
