Miss Jails Marlowe and ber excellent com
pany appeared In "Twelfth Night" at Proo-
tor'a Opera House last evening. It wss Miss
Marlowe's second performance In this oity of
the role of "Viola," she having played the
part hers ons Saturday evening last Decem
ber. Slnoe that time aha haa been meeting
with great auooeas in many cities and mean
while Miss Wainwrlght has presented to us
ths same play with all th wealth of aosnery,
costumes and incidental mnsio ot a spectacu
lar drama. Thla latter artist played the part
very gracefully, but it waa felt that in all ita
soenio pomp and splendor the purpose and
poetry ot tha play waa at times lost sight of.
In the midst ot ths gorgeous stsge settings
the actors of ordinary ability seemed tarns
and commonplace. True It la that though
fins feathers may make fine birds, fine oos
tnmes alone will never make fine actors. Miss
Wsinwright is making a anooess of "Twelfth
Night" by bard work and elaborate scenery.
Miss Marlowe is winning her fame by an in
born genlns her rival doea not possess and by
surrounding herself with aotora of pronoun
ced ability. The language of Shakespeare
falla as readily from her tongue aa thongh it
were her nanal mode of expression. No
aotress now on the stags conld play the role
mora delicately, mors modeetly or more per
feotly. Bat Hiss Marlowe did not do all ths
noting. Mr. Eben Plymton made ;the moat
of "Orsino" and cave to tha character an
earnestnees whloh ia aa characteristic of the
actor as it was of the part he wss portraying.
The boisterous fun whioh Shakeepeare haa
given to "Sir Toby" and "Maria" was weU
assumed by Mr. Leslie Allen and Misa Emma
umokley. The character of "Malvollo" sel
dom reoeivea a more commendable imper
sonation tnan tnat oi mi. urompton. Mr,
Milnea Levick for some unknown reason ap
peared in the unimportant role of "Antonio."
Taken altogether it was a masnifioent per
formance and one that will long be remem
nerea oy tnose wno saw it. Misa Marlowe ia
donbtless very mnoh discouraged st the small
audiences she le receiving, but it Is to be
hoped that she will not be deterred from vis
iting ns strain before the season is -over.
Years sgo Mr. Lawrence Barrett played anoh
roles as "Caasius," "Biohellen" and "Hamlet"
we remember that night well because the
"Ghost" hsd on squeaky boots to smpty
benches. -- Salvini, Davenport, . Mayo and
Modjeska havs met with th aame lack of
support here.bnt all these at length conquer
ed the prejudice of-onr conservative popula-
Hon and so will Miss Marlowe conquer it if
- aha will only persevere. The frlenda ahe haa
mads here will remain faithful to her and all
of b sudden some fine evening she will fin
herself playing to aa large an audienoe as sh
deserves, and that means a paoksd house.
This afternoon "Pygmalion and Galatea"
will be given at 2:30 o'clock and in the even
ing "Ingomar." ' - . ,
