Tame Performance of "Frou Frou"
Joaepla Murphy Coming;.
Before the smallest audience that has
assemble I in Harper's theatre this season,
Madeline Me 1 ssayed the character of
Gilberte in "Ftou Frou" last evening. It
is not to be regretted that more people
were not ttfll ct jd. The Italian either has
not tbe proper conception of the role she
assumed, or is entirely lacking in the
dramatic art essential to the proper pre
sentation of it, while at critical stapes
she was painfully awkward. The per
formance w8 ia all respects exceedingly
amateurish so much so. in truth, that it
would scarcely be recognized as "Frou
Frou." The support was fair. M ss Lola

night, is undoubtedly the richest actor in
