THE SUNDAY HERALD, AUGUST 16. 1891,
HERMAN'S NEW I.VOEU3I AI TUK
BIJOU TO OPEN THIS "WEEK.
tClic Cnrloton Company to Itenrier
"Doroth y" for Its Second Week, With
'Mrs. Cronyn In the CnstTho Ellis nt
the Other Houses.
"Amorita" this week has been a urcat suc
cess for Mr. Carlcton's Company at Albaugh's.
Tho cast is an exceptional one. A bettor
Fra JBombarda than J. K.. Murray is not to bo
secured, and Miss Alice Vincent as Angelo
was tuneful, graceful, and thorough. Mies
Vincent's work in this role Is most conscien
tious. Tier whole heart Is thrown into her
lines, and her duets with Miss Lsno boar
every evidence of the artiste. This Is tho only
opera in which Miss Vincent takes r male
part, and she smothers her cmbarassmont with
hard work Vf. H. Fitzgerald, who has caro
fully drilled Mrs. Cronyn in her work, prom
ises a,brieht future for that lady. A lone ex
perience has given to Mr. Fitzgerald a fore
sight poEsesscd by few of the stage managers
of the present day.
Most people will feel clad that tho theatres
are opening up again. If extreme hot
weather continues, it Is not likely that largo
audience will witness tho performances at
any of the houses; but those people who
would rather perspire in a public place than
keep cool in private quiet, will be more con
tented at knowing that now they wiil have
the choice of three theatres if they feel dis
posed to goto them. Washington is a pain
fully dufl place when all the theatres are
closed in midsummer. There Is absolutely
nowhere to go and no way to be entertained,
unless one entertains one's self, and no ono
wants to undertake to do that with the mer
cury hovering about the nineties. So the
theatres provide a welcome loafing place,
whether the performances amount to much
4 "Dorothy" by tho Carloton Troupe.
To-morrow evening begins the second week
of the Carleton Opera Company's season with
the delightful opera "Dorothy" as the attrac
tion. It is well known that the libretto of
this popular composition is taken directly
from Goldsmith's celebrated comedy, "She
Stoops to Conquer," and the music,which has
been mitten for it by Alfred Collier, is thor
oughly in harmony with the English rusticity
that pervades the action of the piece from
beginning 10 end. "Dorothy" will be cast
with exceptional strength. Mr. Carleton
makes bis reappearance as Goffrcy Wilder.
Miss Clara Lane will appear in the title role.
Alice Vincent will beLydia; Marlon Langden,
Phyllis; Clara Wisdom, Mrs. Prcvett; Miss
Downing, Lady Betty; J. K.. Murray, Squire
Baldwin; W. H. Fitzgerald, Harry Sherwood:
Charles A Blgelow, Lurcher, and H. Rivers
dale, Tiqipett. Itwill be staged in handsome
style ana given a chorus that Is capable as
well as personally attractive. The Carleton
Company is very strong in the public estima
tion here, and there is every n ason to expect
large bouses. "
REOPENING OP THE BIJOU.
"Undo Hiram" tho Bill for Next Week
Other Coinlnc Attractions.
The attraction at Harris' Bijou Theatre this
week is "Uncle Iliram," a .play said to bo in
tense in human interest and peculiarly strong
in the element of comedy. The Bijou has
been fitted out from top to bottom in handsome
style, newly papered and painted, and the
carpeting is of tho finest quality. This makes
the opening to-morrow night especially inter
esting. Of the play a great deal has been
said and written elsewhere in a most compli
mentary strain. Aaron J. Woodhull assumes
the role of Uncle Iliram, and has given it a
quaintly effective style of humor that ha6
made him extremely popular. Uncle Jliram's
homespun philosophy is amusing as well a3
replete with a knowledge of human nature.
Miss Troja Griswold takes the principal
feminine role. She is a bright and attractive
soubrette, and sings, dances, and performs
on several musical instruments. The com
pany has been selected with discrimination,
and the best results have been attained as to
each character. The play Is well mounted, the
scenery and stage accessories being In every
ivay complete and of the best quality. "Unclo
Hiram" will be tho attraction for the week at
the Bijou's usua popular prices, and mati
nees Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.

securing the best list of attractions possible
