Jack Strarw I
Is John Drew
With a Smile On at
By CHARLES DARNTON I
I
IUOPICION that John Drew and Jack Straw are brother In the truest
A MUM of humor grew Into a bUf M the three act of W Somerset MAU
Ibani Uht comedy passed gaily by at the Emplr Theatre last night
W 0 ft n bur of an actor embracing a part but we seldom set the part
yvttinf lu arm over the ihouldcr of the actor and giving him a brotherly slap
B tIM back yt there at the Empire this rare this cheerful sight mt the
eml flrat ITo

To put the matter in familiar terms
Drew was u Jack su Straw This
really tell the whol story of a capital
performance even though It may not
explain where Mr Drew ha been hiding
Mr smile all the year Jack Straw
Is Mr Drew with his smile onI smile
that flaahu from hit wayward aye like
1 ar radium from the airship gun at the
Hippodrome and that lend the corner
7 of his mouth on a grinning holiday As
usual Mr Drew is misunderstood but
YI
this time he doeint take It seriously
The tragedy of iteming wrong when h
Is right no longer saddens him Walter
1 or archduke Its all the lAm to him 10
0 long u the fun of the thing keeps up
And Mill Rot Coghlan was then In
all her glory tat night to see that the
fun did keep up It wu a joy to see
Q her and Mr Drew renewing their Daly
iet youth she u a vulgarian who was so
rich hit she could afford to drop her
b hi u a waiter who tumid arch
I nut oe duke by taking off his fall whiskers
and putting on evening clothe When
GlAD TODINP
G she took him In only to find him out u
eviTN rOil
she supposed Miss Coghlan was quit
OOAO tV
right In saying that It was enough to
pap make her false curls turn gray
But Mr Drew who hats a tidy habit
John Urw as Jack Straw of keeping his years In a bandbox
grew steadily younger once he had
thrown his whiskers to the winds He
1 r may not have been a handsome waiter but hi certainly was a young and alto
gether amiable archduke
J The audience of course wasnt deceived for an Inrtant John Drew a
walter It knew better Couldnt It see that he had better manner than any
of the other people In the Orand Babylon hotel This to be sure li often true
of waiters but where Is there a waiter who could take an order or a tip u
John Drew takes one Mr Drew took
tIp and abuse as a matter of course
for half an act he was a thoroughly
trained waiter you went
AttHCOUXC AFTCR ALL
Then the comedy worm In Mr Mau
ghams play turned Mrs Parker Jen
nings rich but raw went too far when
she humiliated Lady Wanleys little oJU
friend flosle Abbott
Ambrose Holland who was with Lady
Wanley saw through the waiter
whiskers and recognized his old friend
Jock Straw Revenge cried out In Lady o
Manley and Jack Straw was the an
swer Why not make the vulgar rich
itlll more ridiculous by Introducing I
Jack Straw as s nobleman After tak 1
ing a second look it pretty Ethel Jen
nings the willing waiter was more than
willing 11
And there was your playa light but I
tntertalnlng little affair Ethel played
only a small part In It The fireworks
were all In the hands of her ambitious I
mother and the obliging nobleman To
how him off Mrs Parker Jennings
gave a garden party to which the whole
countryside was asked Imagine her
horror when she discovered through yI I
Jack Straw Interfering friends that phi I
she had turned a waiter Into t lion
You cannot Imagine It unless you saw
Rose Coghlan as Mrs Parker Jen
Miss Coghlan In the fullness of her
grief and the white heat of her wrath nlres
Ehe overdid and overdressed the part at
times but she was never vulgar without being Immensely tunny
OJ Mr Draw too made too much noise IP answering the Imperfect ladys
a threats of arrest by drawing a picture of the ridiculous figure she would cut In
the newspapers If the story got out He may have raised his voice In the hope
of lifting a comparatively poor last ac amt of Its dull monotony but he only
ucceeded In throwing himself out of gc Ills last chance was a little scene
In which he proposed to Ethel with
another suitor standing by This irene
which seemed to make a jest of love contained the true essence of the audacious
character and Mr Drew got the very last drop out of it
The other chap took nls medicine cheerfully and Frank Goldsmith summed
up his lost case In a very neat bit of acting lIss Mary Boland as Ethel was
pretty enough for any archdul but she seemed almost overwhelmed at finding
herself John Drews leading woman Miss Co hlan wasnt a bit afraid of Mr
Drew and lie seemed to like her all the better for it With them It was a battle
of artists
In Jack Straw Mr Drew scores the happiest success of his career but tho I
play does not justify Londons great ado over Maugham
