Henri Gressitt. Manager for Henry W. Savage, Pays a Visit to the City
in Interests of "Merty Widow."
Henri Gressitt, one of the best"
known theatrical advance men in the
country who last year visited this city
ahead of "Madam Butterfly," was in
the city last evening looking after tho
interests of "The Merry Widow" which
will be presented at the Illinois Jan..

"We have several very strong com
panies playing 'The Merry Widow, '
said Mr. Gressitt, "but it is my belief
that the organization that will be here
is the best in the world. You know, of
course, that this piece is now being
played in every country of Europe
from Scandinavia to Naples, from Mad
rid to St. Petersburg, from London tc
Belgrade. We are to send -a company
to Australia, and I beard from Mr.
Savage just before he sailed that Hash
ima Yamagata, the well known Tokio
manager, is negotiating for the Japan
ese rights to the piece. I am a little
puzzled whether the Japs can properly
appreciate this play and whether tho
waltz will be a possibility with them.
The chief musical instrument of Japan,
as you know, is the samisen, which will
not lend itself, to my way of thinking,
to the dreamy Viennese strains of the
Lehr score. However, the Japanese
succeeded in capturing Port Arthur
and I suppose they will find a way to
get over the difficulties of thi new
