Sans Gene in English.
The English version of Sar
dou's Napoleonic comedy Mme.
Sans Gene will have its first
production in this city at the
Lyceum Monday and Tuesday,
Nov. 9 and 10. The great suc­
cess of this masterpiece of
French comedy, when played
in the original has justified its
translation into English for the
benefit those who have hereto­
fore been prevented from en­
joying the play owing to their
lack of knowledge of the French
language. The plav is said to
have lost nothing of its
strength or of the human in­
terest in the translation Mme.
Sans Gene is partly a drama of
intrigue and partly a drama of
character. The intrigue turns
on Napoleon's jealously of his
Empress, .Marie i^ouise, and
the victim of his jealously is
Count DeNeipperg. Neippperg
is the romantic figure of the
play, and he is only saved from
the wrath of the Emperor by the
sudden discovejy of the Em­
press' innocence at the end of
the play. Sardou very cleverly
tells his story, without bring­
ing Marie Louise on the stage.
The most intensely interest­
ing part of Madame Sans Gene,
however, is the story of the
woman who gives the drama
its title. As "Catherine Hub
scher the laundress," she is a
mirth loving kind hearted girl.

tortuous changes of revolution­
ary times, she finally becomes
Duchess of Dantzig, "Marechal
Lefebere" and figures promi­
nently in the court of Napo­
leon, she is still the lovable
woman of the laundry beauti­
ful, generous, in a pinchbeck
and immoral court. Her gauch
eries, her slang, her audacious
contempt for the gorgeous
meanness about her, so arouses
Napoleon, that he commands
her husband to divorce her.
But her humor, her shrewd
good sense,and her enthusiastic
championship of the heroic
elements that have gone to the
making of the Empire, win the
Kmperor finally to an apprecia­
tion of her virtues.
The title role will be carried
by Miss Kathryn Kidder while
Augustus Cook will play the
part of Napoleon.
The play has two aspects.
First, there is a picture of Paris
in the heat of Revolutionary
times. Paris as it appeared
on August 10, 1792 when the
last blow to the Bourbons was
dealt. The picture is vivid and
full of life, cannonading, love
making, wine drinking, and
death go on and make up a
sort of a joyful chaos, Sardou
has shown all the factors in
the picture from "Catherine
Hubscher's" laundry in the
Rue St. Anne. The second part
of the play is less vivid and
more deliberate, and presents
the court of Napoleon at the
zenith of his power. A dynasty
has been evolved from anarchy.

gowns the men are brilliant

The play is promised with all
the original scenery and effects
used during its run of 150
nights in New York.
