ACADEMY, DECEMBER 27.
Cf all the plays that havo fascinated
thn theatre-going public of this country
the past decade few have attained the
same popularity as the stirring romantic
drama "Monte Cristo." This is not only
due to the absorbing interest .of Mr. Al?
exander Dumas' powerful story, but it. as
much owing to the superb treatment that
the chief character of Kdir.ond Dantes,
has received at the hands of James
O'Neill. He has impersonated the fa?
mous role ovtr ten years. The part of
Edmou'1 Dantes require* an actor of un?
usual ability to portray it, owing to its
complex nature. Whether as the rollick?
ing, nimble sailer of tho prologue, the
emaciated convict making his bold striKe
for freedom, the gentle-voiced, sad-eyed
Driest or the dignified Count of Monte
Cristo. he is always equ?lly effective Of
the three main characters of the piny into
which Mr. Dumas changed his sailor lad,
It is doubtful if one has exercised more
fascination over the greater part of the
public than that of Abbio Buson. A new
dress of scenery has tieeu provided which
meets with all the pictorial possibilities
of Dumas' picturesque play. At the
Academy, Monday, Decemler27.
