AT THE ILLINOIS.
It is now over a quarter of a cen
tury since the famous Gilbert and
Sullivan lighter operas dawned upon
a delighted muslc-iovlng world and
took their places as classics. Since
then no musical plays have dared to
aspire to a place In their class until
"The Spring Maid," which comes to the
Illinois tomorrow night, modestly
slipped into metropolitan New York
two seasons ago and took that blase
city by storm. Now it, looks as if this
captivating little operatic lady is go
ing to perch herself right up in the
exclusive niche of the hall of fame and
stay there right beside "Pinafore,"
"The Mikado" and other Gilbert and
Sullivan operettas. Different from most
modern musical plays, "The Spring
Maid" is filled with fasciuating ro
mance. It does not depend upon local
"gags," salacious plot, questionable
situations and ecaatlly clothed chorvi
women to make it appealing. Dainti
ness and charming romance Is the
keynote of its book. It. is safe to Fay
that there never has been in musical
comedy such a bewitching and dainty
little lady as the mischievous Prlaaess
Bozena. played by Marguerite Wright.
She is filled with innocent fun and
harmless mischief. Her flirtation and
final conquering of the dashing but

Louis Mann, who comes to the Illi
nois Saturday in his latest metropoli
tan success. "Elevating a Husband,"
is a great advocate of out of door life.
Away from his stage work, much time
is spent by Mr. Mann in the country.
Outside of the theatre, Louis Mann's
greatest hobby ia baseball, and in the
latter world he is as Important a fig
ure as he is on the American stage.
At the Mann farm there is everything ,
, house, with huge barns a short way ' sold to the Anti-Cruelty society for its
off, stands in the center of sweeping I annual benefit.
! meadows and far-reaching pastures.
, There are cows, pigs, blooded horses
and poultry, and Mr. Mann even has a
.team of oxen to do the heavy hauling
about the place in preference to the
more modern auto truck. The actor
himself enters heartily into the work : en on Saturday night
of the farm and a day's haying is look
ed upon as less a labor than a lark.
His evenings are given over to study,
for the actor is a student, and few
players can converse with as much
versatility on a wide range of subjects.

If there is any criticism to be regis
tered against Mr. Sothern it is that j
he is too generous in the dispensation
c f the tal'.-uts of himse'.f and his sup
porting players. At the Illinois thea
tre last ni:;ht he presented the Booth
version of "Macbeth" before an audi
ence that liiled every seat in the
theiitre. The curtain was rung up
prompt'y at 8, but It was 11:40 before
the audience was dismissed, and
though it witnessed one of the most
brilliant and finished Shakespearean
productions ever staged the majority '
had been worn by its length. '
Th.s is meant more as a tribute to'
: Mr. Sothern than as an attempt to !
! discredit htm, for it is the sincerity '
! of the player and his love of bis pro
fessional labors that carries him into '
details that others essaying Shake
spearean roles have ignored that they
might keep the time or tne interpre
tation within a period fixed by the
'commercial end of the undertaking.
Sothern first of a.l looks upon
Shakespeare as his histrionic god;
secondly, he is an artist of rare depth j
of conception in fathoming the lives j
of the characters created by the bard; i
thirdly, he Is blessed with those essen-1
'. tials of physique and vocal equipment I
i that perfect him for the parts la
which he has chosen to appear.
Miss Julia Marlowe, (Mr. Sothern's
wife i. who is his chief support. Is out j
i of the cast temporarily, and Mifes j
Lenore Chippendale was seen here as
her substitute. As Lady Macbeth Misa
Chippendale, in may respects, out
shines Miss Marlowe, and in others,
particularly in the more emotional
: readings, eb falls short by compari
son. Miss Chlppenda.e is a young
woman possessing apparently more ;
' force than Mis Marlowe, and in the j
! climax speeches rises to more effec- i
1 tlve pitch, suggesting masculinity, j
; whereas Miss Marlowe never losea a :
pervading sweetness which is manifest
1 even in her most cruel scenes. j
Yet Miss Chippendale conquered her
1 audience last night from the start, 1
and Joined with Mr. Sothern In taking
repeated curtain calls. Mr. Lewta, as j
' "Macduff," gave one of the most lm- i
' presslve readings of the character the '
student cf Shakespeare ever listened
to. The others of the cast were equal
ly effeetUe in their respective parts.
Snch elaborateness of accessory and
staging probably has never before
been seen In connection with Shake
spearean tragedy. Even to the mus
ical accompaniment not the minutest
detail was omitted. I

AT THE GRAND.
The Orpheum circuit plays many ac
robatic acts during a season, but bcI
dom does it, give to one of them the
headline honors in its advertising.
N'at Nazarro, at the Crand this week, ;
is one of the few who enjoy this dis- j
tiartlou. Mr. Nazarro Is a noted ath
lete and has been aii instructor in the
gymnasium of t,he I'niversity of Penn
sylvania and the Philadelphia Y. M.
C. A.- "I taught physical culture for
many years," said he, "and no matter
what class, whether small boys or
:dUts, I endeavored to drive into them
vhat athletes speak of as 'form.'
What we do ia our vaudeville offering
s not so startling. It's just the way
.ve do what we do. I mean by that,
iiir one aim is to present acrobatic
work in an artistic way. When we do
a trick, we try to do it with the per-
fectlon of ease and the acme of style,
clumsiness of working will spoil the
'iest trick that has ever been evolved
in all the centuries of acrobatics." Mr.
Nazarro's company is like a happy
ainlly, demonstrating the fact that
artists can be congenial among them.
Nazarro himself looks after the boys,
associates with them, in fact is con
tinually on the lookout for some amuse
ment for them during the hours they
are not, entertaining others.
"THE DAUGHTER OF HEAVEN" IN
The second in the Liebler Co.'s ser-!
les of vast spectacle plays of human
interest, "The Daughter of Heaven," j
will be shown in Chicago for the first ,
time on Monday night, Feb. 10, in the i
Auditorium theatre, following the eight
weeks' run there of "The Garden of
Allah." The latter spectacle, when
shown in Chicago last September, was
voted the most lovely exhibition ever
given ia any theatre in the world.
Yet. "The Daughter of Heaven" Is said j
; j j to surpass even "The Oaraen or Al-
! lah in sheer Deauty. I ne mini play 1
j in the series, "Joseph and His Breth-
ren," is now the reigning success in
: New York City, where it, is being act
ed by one of George C. Tyler's great
casts, having been staged there at the
end of the run of "The Daughter of
Heaven," which ran from the first of
the season until Jan. 4.
Miss Viola Allen, who has not acted
in Chicago for four years, will be shown
In her original role of the empress of j c
China when "The Daughter of Heav-, r
en" is actd in the Chicago Auditorium. ' -With
her will- come the original Ct-a-! h
tury theatre cast and company of ; f
more than 200 persons. Including some
of the best known actors on the Amer
ican stage. The scene of "The Daugh
ter of Heaten" is China not the Chi
na of the picture cards and of comic
opera, but the real China. It is the
first attempt to picture on the stage
of an American theatre the wonders
of the great Asiatic empire, with its
civilization that la o old that It seems
new, and with a barbarism that la so
new that it seems old.
Mist Allen will not act Sunday
nlghu; so the engagement of "The
Daughter of Heavea" will be limited
, to 18 B!ghu and six afternoons, tie
