There was presented in the Detroit
opera house, Monday evening, one of
the most marvelous and beautiful
playa ever given before an American
audience. Indeed, it can truthfully
he said that a more intense, grip
ping, appealing drama than “Joeeph
and His Brethren*’ has never been
staged. The play is the masterpiece
of Louis N. Parker and is most mag
nificently presented by the Liebler
The story of the play is simple yet
vivid, following in the main the
Biblical version of Joeeph and Jacob
and his eleven other sons. Indeed,
Louis N. Parker himself says that
wherever possible It is a “literal
transcript'* from the Bible story. It
begins with the eleven sons of Jacob
tending their herds. Ten of these
were green-eyed toward Joseph, and
sold him to Zulatka. tha wlfa of
Potiphftr, who makes him a slave.
She tempts Joseph, sad when he
scorns her love because of hie true
love for Asenath, Zulelka accuses
him, and has bar husband throw him
into prison.
After two years of agony in the
dungeon, Joseph is brought forth to
translate the dream of Pharaoh. Be
cause he rightly translates this
dream he is made ruler of the king
dom. second to Pharaoh only. Joseph
aids the people through a seven
years' famine and plague, after hav
ing married Asenath.
Joseph’s brothers came to him for
food, when their crops failed; and
Joseph made himself known to them
all. for they did not recognize In the
over-lord of Egypt their young
brother, whom they had sold into
slavery many years before. Jacob
and Benjamin, Joseph and the rest
of tha brothers are united again at
the close of the play.
Tha scenery and st&ge-settings are
beautiful, and to pick tha most en
thralling is a difficult performance
In Itself. But perhaps tha one that
appealed most strongly to the audi
ence, was the scene in act 11., in the
Garden of Potlphar, when Joeeph
makes known his love for Asenath,
and aka says that aha loves but him.
Another scene that vies with this
one. la that of tha pyramids at night,
with the mars shining above, and
tha moon peeping over the tops of
tha pyramids. Tha former is a love
•cans, with' Joseph and Asenath
strolling among the grape arbors in
the moonlight; the latter a scene of
denunciation, where Potlphar finds
out Zulelka cares not for him. aud
for her falthlesaness puts out her
The audience, overwhelmed by the
truth and sincerity of the play, awed
by lls magni flee nee, inspired by its
action and beauty, left the theater
with a higher regard for things holy
and spiritual. The whole attitude
and opinion of all might be summed
up In the closing line of the drama:
“Happv is the man that trusteth in
Brandon Tynan has the title role
of Joseph, and well did he merit the
applause and cordial receptiou given
him Monday night. He swayed the
audience from laughter to tears,
from Joy to sorrow. He made them
love with him as he w’alked with
Asenath; mourn with him as ha
heard her pan* by the prison walls,
singing, sorrow with him for bis
brothers; and rejoice with him at
the great reunion. He was a won
derful success.
Avery close second to Brandon
Tynan, in demonstrated approval,
was Janies O’Neill, who played most
excellently the part of Jacob, the
father, and of Pharaoh, the King.
He received uumerous calls before
the curtain, and his acting came
quite up to his historionlc renown.
Ruth Rose, us Asenath, lover of
Joseph, and Pauline Freiderlok, as
Zulelka. the wife of Potlphar, de
serve especial credit for the way they
played their role*. The sweet, win
some way of Mias Rose completely
captivated the audience, while
Miss Frederick, though playing a
less likeable part, was undoubtedly
one of the best actresses In the cast.
The play, as a whole—scenery,
stage-settings, actors, actresses, etc.,
forms with its four historically faith
ful acts, and 12 beautiful scenes the
beet combination of power, attrac
tion, beauty, and interest of any play
seen here in some time. It Is well
worth attending—not for the mere
entertainment It gives, not even for
the beauty aud grandeur of its stage
settings—but for the moral inspira
tion and ralnforcement it gives all
who see It.
