AS YOU LIKE IT.'
And Ton Are Bnre to "Like It" ml the)
Production mt the Tower.
"As Yon Like It," the most charm
ing of Shakespeare1 pastoral plays,
to be given at the Tower June 19,
whose stage presentation possesses
perennial freshness and power, is
never seen to such advantage as in
the green woods under the sky. This
ideal, William Morris, whose Orlando
to the Rosalind of Modjeska is readi
ly remembered, has striven to reach,
with a success second to that of none
of the open air performances of this
play thus far given. Heretofore this
delicate and novel entertainment has
been within the reach only of the
wealthy at their country places, with
two notable exceptions: Mr. Daly's
performance at Stratford upon Avon,
and the one given' at the World's
fair. Its present accessibility to the
mass of play-goers is due to the en
terprise of Mr. Morris and his com
pany, encouraged by the enthusiastic
support of the trial presentation giv
en at St. Paul last season. Tho his
tory of open air performances of "As
You Like It" shows that the greater
the simplicity of the woodland scene
the greater the artist it success. The
actors in the rich costumes of the
piece wander among the real trees
with greater freedom than in the
painted forest of the theatre. The
stage is the green sward, and the
sympathy of the audience is quick
ened by their very nearness to the
scene and the players through the
lack of those accessories which, in
the theatre, make the players and
the audience seem so far apart. In
the Morris production, the inter
mission between the acts ' is occu
pied by appropriate music by the
military band carried by the com
pany, which also gives a concert be
fore'the beginning of the play. The
effectiveness of the traditional songs
of the play is enhanced by a chorus,
which is also a feature of the com
pany. The arrangement of seats is
such that every person in the audi
ence can see and hear as readily as
in the theatre.

A Brilliant Scheme.
A brilliant scheme was adopted the
other day by a theatrical company
which found itself stranded at Dayton,
O., nnd its next engagement at Cleve
land. A plan was made for tho arrest
of one of the members of the company
on tho charge of opening a letter be
longing to another member. The ac
cused was taken before tho United
States commissioner at Cleveland, where
tho other members of the company were
subpoenaed as witnesses. They of conrso
secured his acquittal and also their fees,
amunntitiK to $8.25 apiece. It was tho
mot profitable engagement they have
played this season, but the commission
er is willing to bet that they can't play
it ou him again, Troy Times.
