AT THE EMPIRE.
An automobile collision in midstage 1
is about the funniest Incident of "The
Cat aad the Fiddle," which yesterday ;
began a three-day engagement at the
Empire. There is a comedian in each
of the machines, and when they meet
head-on there is an explosion and both
cars fall in pieces over the stage.
Of course they are not regular m?.
chiaes. That would be too expensive.
They are mostly of poster paper, but
the collision is so well done that you'll
enjoy the by-play. In previous seasons
"The Cat and the Fidd'.e." a musical
extravaganza, built around familiar
nursery rhymes, passed with the
standard attractions of its class call
ing for the top admission rates at the
bos office. Since the time. is passing
when the public will pay the high
prices, for musical comedies, except in
rare instances where the company car
ries one or mor? well-known stars,
the owners of "The Cat aad the Fid
dle" have Lit the two-a-day houses,
recruiting smaller companies and not
being so particular with reference to
talents. Thus "The Cat and the Fid
dle" Is rlaying at the Empire at the
regu".ar prices of that house. The
big Empire was nearly filled to ca
pacity last night, and the audience
seemed to enjoy the performance. No,
Richard Carle or Hattie Williams are
not. in the cast. To be frank, one go-
i ne i ai ana me t la-
die in the belief that he is to wit-
fnn a. - uugni 10 ue aisappoint-
ed. It is ridiculous to suppose that
"That, Cat and thf Fiddle" can be
presented at 10, 20 end 30 cents as it
was at $1.50 and S2. But in its pres
ent form it is well worth the moaey.
The scenery alone will repay one for
buying a seat. The performance is so
long that Manager' K. T. Dolly has de-
tided to liminate the opening moving
pictt.re during the engagemedt. Ed
Gilmore, as "Happy," a hobo, bears
the burden of the comedy, and he is
above the average as a funny man.
There is a young and healthy looking
chorus. There are no Melbas in the
flock, but the girls do the best they
