Season after season Ezra Kendall has entertained the theatre going public, but this year he brings to Rich- mond on Friday, Nov. 9 his greatest success, "Swell, Elegant Jones" which has received unlimited praise, every where it has played. Kendall has a . In the title role Mr, 1 V part, that just suits his versatile taVjgood Saturday there will be a spec-' ents, that of a millionaire who goes broke and loses his wife through the scheming of a former suitor for his wife's hand. He sets about to retrieve both, and of course succeeds. The play is full of bright lines and come of the rural characters are sure to make a hit with theatre goers. A capable cast of players surrounds Mr. Kendall, and a carload of . elaborate scenery should make this the most en joyable night at the Gennett this sea- n. "Capt. Careless" Gennett. Elfreda Busing, the contralto ap pearing as Inez in support of John E. Henshaw in B. C. Whitney's produc tion of "Captain Careless," .is an ex ceptionally beautif il girl, who has Jiad a remarkable stage experience, and although scarcely out of her teens, h:.s a repertoire of grand and comic opera exceeded by but very few prima donnas, who have devoted a life time of study to opera. As in preparation thoroughly, familiarized herself with ever role that she would ever be lia ble to play, her education was com pleted abroad in grand opera in Ber lin and Vienna singing in German. She was engaged as the contralto with the Lulu Glaser Company and with Mme. Schumann-Heink in "Love's Lottery" as her understudy, successfully inter preting the role of Lina on several oc casions during the diva's illness. Miss Busing will appear here with Mr. Hen shaw in "Captain Careless" at the Gennett next Saturday, matinee and night. 'Earl and the Girl" Gennett. The plot of "The Earl and the Girl? the famous musical comedy, which ran for more than two years in London, and which scored another emphatic success when presented by the Messrs. Shubert at the New York Casino The atre, is very much Hoytian, and in fact, the names of the characters sound as if they had been taken from that famous play-wright's works. The cast includes such names as Jim Cheese, Crow Doodle, A. Bunker Bliss, Mr. Downham, Ticken Talk, Liza Shodham, Mrs. Shimmering Black, and Virginia Bliss. "The Earl and the Girl" will bo presented at the Gennett Theatre next Monday nighi. Vaudeville at the Phillips.
