|AT NEWRIDGEWAY THEATER
" Mary Jane's Pa " Tonight.
In "Mary June's Pa," an idyllic mid
west comedy by Eiith Ellis, there is such
an exquisite handling of the loves of the
humau sou! as to require a most clever
company to do it justice, and as Mr.
John Cort never does things half way, it
is safe to conclude that the company
supporting Max Figman in this produc
tion at the New Ridgeway tonight is
strong and well cast. They say that
the story of Edith Ellis' play parallels
the poetic tale of Tennyson's "Enoch
Arden" until the ending which, in "Mary
Jane's Pa" is most happy. So amid the
pastoral surroundings indicated, one
mar expect a tale involving the love of a
parent for the child, husband for wife,
and lover for sweetheart, well depicted
and well acted. It is said that the con
clusion of the second act, when a news
paper is turned from the press, is most
thrilling. Helfne Lackaye is Mr. Fig
man's leading woman.
"The Climax," Saturday Night.
" The Climax" will be seen at the New
, Ridgeway on Saturday night, Dec. 31.
It is one of the most remarkable dramas
of modern times. It contains all the
essentials of success. First, it has a
tremendous plot, which is worked out
with admirable power. Second, it has
great heart interest; and third, it has
situations which for intensity have never
! been surpassed The play is by Edward
I Locke, who has seized upon the salient
' points in modern life and has transferred
I them to th» stage with tidelity to nature.
i The result is a play that appeals to
: people of all clauses iv life. It has been
| one of the most successful plays on the
road this season and has created keen
interest wherever it has been produced.
| The company offering " The Climax " is
| a carefully selected one, and the United
Play Company which is directing the
j toiir of this organization has spared no
; expense in making this a superb produc
tion. The company carries all scenery
and special properties.
