Monday's Attraction "The Queen of Moulin Rouge," the title of tho musical comedy drama which set Broadway aflame with en thusiasm and stirred the criti:s of the city, is rather a misnomer. So much has been written about it that further words ure almost useless. However, a few sentences to rnrrc(- n nnnnlop tho misapprehension, doubtless caused ty suggestive title, will be worth while. 'in at it is chic, bizarre and Insnirimr is frankly admitted. That it has dash harmles transiency, effervescence, is cordially granted. That is is not risque, low in moral tone or offensive to the modest eyes and ears, is vouchsafed by Samuel ir. .Kork, under whose direction It appears at tho Keith next Monday evening. Tho mdst defensive thing about "The Queen of Moulin Rouge" Is tho abundance of song hits and its protty and vivacious dancing stunts. Parisan costumes, always a delight, aro a notable feature. The production is elaborate and tho presenting com pany is UBnually large.requirlng a spec ial train of fivo cars for transportation. Kills County Option.
