DAVID WARFTELP. THY. MURIO MASTER," AT THE KELABCO THEATRE.
THEATRICAL INCIDENTS AND NEWS NOTES.
ARE KIND CRITICS MORE THAN CORONETS?—WAR
FIELD IN A NEW PLAY.
It ■ a strange tl-.lng, this going night after
night to new Bias*, and night after night record-
Ing one's impressions of them. It m?.y be one
questions »me!in:es If the clet floe* net play a
not Inconsiderable part In the formation of Judg
ment, and wonders If a training table for critics
would no' be an excellent institution. All the
relative merits of naiad cresting* would probably
prove an ■— « M th lt bone of contention, and
there would rarely be ana stubborn New-Eng
lsnder who would insist on pie! Yet there was
one occasion last week when a little mire kind
ness en the part of some reviewers would not
have come amis?, and another seflaaion when &
little clearer vis: perhaps a little lass kindness
—would have heM theatrical affairs !n a true
perspective, In the rush of dally recording widely
diverging happening*, It is not easy to keep the
vanishing point in the true horizon, to observe the
proper retj^. .-t townrd ono'g vocabulary, allowing
Uie larger adjectives to lie untouched until their
use Is Justly demanded by the event; yet It Is
purely o:ie of the first duties of the chronicler to
*ttempt to maintain hih perspective true, and it Is
<;.»>• a correction of the vision to point out that
if the a .ting of W. H. Crane In "Business Is
PusineFß" la futile, if he is "hopelessly miscast"
and merely "the same old Crane." then the acting
of airs. BJoodpr>od in "The Coronet of the Duch
*ss" and the performance of Ernest Lawford to
ihe same riiay do not deserve the adjeotlves "gu
preme" and "brilliant " which were in some quat^
t«rs respectively attributed to them. The tense
nf rttUssaa is distorting the view.
Vet it was probably a kindly Instinct which
prompted the laudation of these players In Mr.
Fitch drama But shall kind critics be more
tier, coronets? 6ha:i th« desire to mitigate aome
*hat the harshness of a just condemnation of a
"er: bad play cause the reviewer to forget his
settve? No acting car. be "supreme" which
Coes not erouse in the beholder to a remarkable
pOefe th* emotions supposed to be filling the plajr
«■« bosom. No ecting can be "brilliant" which
does not create a most vivid Illusion of life. Sow,
»' may be questioned by the judicious whether
Mrs. Bioc-d*!."-"! a mediocre actress, whom a pleas
ant ■arnrstsias makes attractive and appealing in
her Quiet r moments of mirth or sweetnees, oonld
ever lay i.oid of the elemental passions, ever lisa
to be "supreme," even in a play which truly rep
resented tcts. aid it may also be questioned if
Mr. Lewford has yet shown tie capacity to create
s picture of character in a etyl* worthy of the
eholc« and *uperla!ive word 'brilliant." even should
that sharer tar have been endowed by its author
with the Instlnets of a vivid creation. And in
"The Coronet of the Duchess" Mrs. Bloodgood is
deprived by the playwright of an opportunity
even to lay hold of elemental passions, while Mr.
Lewford w&Jkjs thrcush a part that commands no
appeal to the beholder's imagination, that prob
ably permits of no contrasts between surface pol
ish and Indwelling f«jld:shn*ss, that is vitalised by
no virility on the part of the author. To use the
worts ■waaraoM ana "brilliant" on the work of
Mrs. Bloodgood &r.i Mr. I^awford In this play is In
reality much like squandering one's choicest ad
jectives on the heroine < f a novel by "The Duch
ess" and the "silly .-js" Englishman of a musical
comedy.
On the other hand, perspective is equally distort
ed by condemning utterly Mr. Crane's performance
In "Hus!n«-fc Is liusir.'-se." Admitting for the mo
ment that Mr. Crane fell far short of the possibili
ties of the clmracter of Isidore Lechat. and that he
did fall rhort to fome extent nauet be admitted (as
it must be admitted of all performances save one
ec two In a generation!), stlli. because the vitality
and magnitude of tho character, th© tremendous
call on the reeouncss and physical energy of the
performer, the impressive theatric situations of
Which It was the pivot. In playing it even with su.t.
email measure of success as some of his critics an
■wsjmso be attained. Mr. Crane displayed far gi eat
er power as an actor, achieved far more emotional
results, painted a far more vivid picture on the
mud of the beholder, and deserve* far greater
credit. To laud high Mr. L*wford and Mrs. Blood
good and to damn Mr. Crane la to Bhout up the
composer of "Goodby, My Blue Bell" as an artist
end snout down Puccini for the failure of Mac.
Bntterfly.
But bow far did Mr. Crane really fail? How far
ware the various attributions of failure due to the
Shortsightedness of reviewers, who could not—
hesitates to car would not. ar.d there seems to be
as possible reason for having to say it— forget Mr.
Crane's past and look only on his present? It is a
difficult. U not an Impossible, thing to disassociate

acting. Because Mr. Crane as Isidore Lechat
chuckles In th« same fashion as Mr. Crane when
David Karum it Is by no means fair to assume that
therefor Mr. Crane's Isidore Lechat is the same
sort of person a* his David Harum and to aver
that the actor is "hopelessly miscast." A man may
chuckle and chuckle and be a villain, yea, even
though he be W. H. Crane! For years writers In
the American drama have been lamenting the "star
system," which keeps an actor in the same part for
seasons st a stretch and turther restricts him to
one line of parts. Mr. Crane has been a victim to
this system. But in "Business Is Business" he has
broken away from his familiar "line." and Charles
Frohman, god of the machine which makes stars
while you wait, has nade the opportunity. Why
not give both men a word of praise instead of the
wet blanket? And, above nil, why not look on Mr.
Crane's performance of Lechat as -.•:> isolated per
formance, and Judge it on its sole merits?
So looked on. It is; very far from failure; it la
very close to succors; it outtops many and many
performances in surrounding theatres, and deserves
public patronage, anil perious attention. Isidore
Let '..at i.- a wolf, oi a still fiercer dog, who lias
felt the call of the financial wild in his brutish
marrow. Ha is a chars •■ painted in lurid cut
line, a Dor* of the drama. But he Is also a wolf in
sheep's clothing, or, rather, perhaps, in an ass's
skin. The actor who plays the put muFt grin and
bray as on ass, but anon be must show his fangs.
Where Mr. Crane's failure was a real failure was
la his Inability to show his fangs with sufficient
cruelty and horror. He wore the ass's skin con
•inclngly, and it was a part of the character th.it
be should wear it. not a sign that he was only
"the same old Crane* and "hopelessly miscast."
And the character was conceived by the author
and written into the play with too much skill to
permit of his felling entirely to ehoiv his faa£B.
There was horror enough in Mr. Crane'a perform
ance to affect the imagination, and indicate, to any
c;.« with an Intelligence penetrable by ordinary
projectiles the terrible traits of the man, the bit
ter lesson of the drama. Only his Lechat la not a
Dore from the original— th« lurid horror is not
projected In Its entire possibility of sharp cut out
line, and de<?i> laid shadow; it i.< a Dore softened
by an engraver whose native geniality and good
hearted sense of fun is Incapable of an imagina
tive grasp in the whole conception of the picture.
But enough of the substance Is there to make the
performance eminently worth while, even as the
mere effort Is commendable.
The opening of most Interest this week comes at
the Belasco Theatre to-morrow, where David War
field will appear In a new play by Charles Klein
called "The Music Master." The play has been
staged, of cou:-se. by Mr. Baiaaoo, and all which
that statement implies ties on the right side of
success. Mr. Warnelu will in this new drama de
part from his former characterisations and appear
as an old flu mm musician, formerly director of
opera in Dresden. This ambitious care- was sud
denly ruined through the faithlessness of an adored
wife, who. deserting him. had fled to America with
their young daughter. It is years later that he Is
first found in New-York, tired, poor and gray, In
his endless search for them, and yet cheerful and
hopeful despite all difficulties. From conductor
of the Dresden Opera he is now reduced to leader
of a little band of musicians at an East Side cafe.
Some of them. including Yon Barwig. have lodgings
In liouston-st., where they live a sort of Bohemian
existence. It la here that his own daughter event
ually comes to arrange for music lessons; so he
begins dally visit* to the fashionable home of her
supposed father, the man who had ruined his name
and career. Thereafter the dramatic interest
centres In the two personalities, father and child,
and Mr. War field is called on for more serious
acting then he- has yet attempted. The cast:

On Monday night, also, Arnold Daly will pro
duce at the Berkeley Lyceum a new one act play
by O. B. Shaw, presenting It, together with "A
Man of Destiny." It ls called "How He Lied to
Her Husband. " It ls an old maxim of De La
Rochefoucauld that "If a man be a man of honor
he must He almost dally, so seldom ls there any
olher way to serve a woman." This maxim has
teen a stage convention for a long while, and
seeming a sham to Shaw he assails it In this one
act piece, which ho calls a "eomedlettlna." A
youthful hero in love with another man's -wife
arouses the husband s suspicions, and when called
to sccount does the conventional lying. The re
sult is, however, un?onvent!onai because It ls a
Shaw play. The husband's suspicions are not
lulled, but no melodramatic conflict fellows. His
Indignation is aroused by the overdone indifference
of the young man. and tho complications that en
sue are said to be novel and amusing, hiding; mean
while beneath the surface of the dialogue a ques
tion of modern social interest as complex as that
presented la "CaniiMa." Whether the moral of
the little piece ls a plea for frankness In all social
relations, an exposition of the futility of unskil
ful lying or something more subtle, will doubtless
be a subject of controversy such as always follows
the production of a new Shaw play and usually
ends where it began.
After four years of absence from the "sta^e, Delia
Fox returns to Broadway next Friday night, when
she will be seen at the Princess Theatre in a new
musical comedy, entitle-! "The West Point Cadet."
This piece was adapted by M. Norden from the
French of Paul Billaud and Alfred Burre. while
music was contributed by A. M. Norden. and the
work of staging was done by Joseph Herbert.
Mis* Fox will be seen in a part promisingly like
those which won success for her In "Wang." "Tho

Little Host." Persons who remember her In these
pieces will understand. The cast:

The new playhouse wilt have about the seating

theatre devoted to light music and comedy. There

on the roof, kept constantly filled with 15.000 gal
lons of water by a complete direct pumping system.
Every requirement of the building laws regulating
the construction of theatres In this city has more
than been complied with, especially In the matter
of exits. When the plans were drawn they were not
only passed by the Buildings Department with eon.
mendation, but they were also submitted t • the
Board of Fire Underwriters, and every additional
suggestion mad* by this body was accepted and
carried out.
The main entrance on Fnrty-Becor..l-st. Is sup
plemented as an exit by a wide court on each side
of the theatre, running into Forry-ilrst-st .. Pr ■vis
ing separate exits on both rtdes of the house fr^m
the auditorium and both balconies. Besides these,
there are two largo protected staircases on the
north side of th« house. These court* are twelve
feet wide, or three and a half foet wider than the
law requires. There are five exits into them from
the orchestra floor, besides the main entrance from
Forty-»econd-st. From the first balcony there
are four exits Into them and tha two grand stair
cases leading to the main floor and the Forty-sec

are six exits Into them. besides two entirely It .'lat*l

These, with the, main entrance staircase, make nina

which has a stating capacity of only *l p3t>ple.
This gives twenty-one separate Interior firrproof
exits, exclusive of an elaborate system of ex

tion of the theatre la suggested lit the ornamenta
tion of th» Forty-»econd-st. facade—the Liberty
Bell, surmounted by an eagle— and la carried
through the entire design to tiie arches over the
proscenium and boxes*. The main entrance on For
ty-srtcond-st. Is flanked on either elde by caryatides
representing Comedy and Bong, and Is also treated
In the same style as the remainder of the decora
tions. The vestibule has an arched dome extending
about thirty feet. Here doors of embossed leather
swing Into a spacious foyer about fifty feet in
length. Patrons of the first and second balconies
will go up a wide grand staircase Immediately fac
ing the foyer, while- those who purchase orchestra
seats will turn to the right into the grand prom
enade and orchestra.
The mural decorations, designed by F. Richard
Anderson, are In keeping with th« general char
acter of the theatre. The treatment of the domed |
vestibule which leads Into the foyer Is old gold
and aluminum. The foyer leading into the grand
promenade Is toned In ivory and white. The treat

color scheme of the auditorium— tores In old gold, I

seats, carpets, draperies and drop curtain, the
purpose being to create a soft but brilliant*- effect.
The dome Is decorated In the old Colonial roof
beam effect. Over the boxes, on either side of the
proscenium arch, the feature of the ornamentation
Is an eagle with wings rampant surmounting a
Liberty Bell. The decoration of the ladles' retiring
rooms Is carried out In the pansy d. sign, with npnle
