Margaret Anglin in Notable Revival Margaret Anglln Ib ono of tho really com paratively fow great living actresses. One speaks of "groat living nctressea" tho majority of great nctrcsses, of course, being dead. Tho samo la Inevitably true of great, very great, playwrights. However, Miss Anglln Is very much alive so much so that her husband figures In automo bllo arrests whllo she, herself, revives a play written by ono of tho most brilliant men of tho century man to whom, lying In a. grave In Montmartrc, haa come a full and deserved recognition for surpassing wit and genius. "Lady Windermere's Fan," In which Miss Anglln nppcared last night nt tho Broad Street Theatre, Is a play of admirable technique, nn evening's dramatic menu In which every courso Is served with tartar sauce. There has never been a moro seductive, a moro subtle, u moro delightfully worldly Mrs. Erlynno than tho ono presented by Miss Anglln. Miss Anglln makes that brilliant woman, of a dubious character, really winning. On the stago this type usually Isn't. In Wilde's play this woman, tragical In her life, becomes a mother desirous of protect ing her child. Mrs. Erlynno la perhaps the most appealing character In tho WUdo plays. As such. Miss Anglln played tho part with nn Intellectual understanding, an artistic restraint which Wlldo himself would havo ndmlrcd. If "Lady Windermere's Fan" Is already an anachronism so far as upper Fifth avenuo or Rlttenhouse Squaro aro concerned, Its satire on social and homo frailty Is quite as apropos as when Wilde wrote It. Ab a play It Is far ,superIor to the Eugene Walter and 'Gus Thomas productions ns they attempt to deal, seriously or otherwise, with social and other problems. Miss Anglin's cast Is admirable. Ruth Holt Bouclcault is a scintlllnnt Duchess of Berwick. Florence Carpenter, as Lady Windermere, was Insinuatingly captivating. While Sidney Green street played Lord Lorton Incomparably, there havo been much better Lord Wlndermeres than that enacted by Leonard Wllley, tho heralded Australian star. Mr. Wllley was a bit too In tense too intense, jou know. Altogether, .Miss Anglin's revival Is notable. It is perhaps one of the best, If not the best, presentation of Oscar Wildo's delectable play. boring one. It Is a high-water mark of banality and bathos, and a. type of tho sort of thing which mnkes one wonder at tho tem porary mental comas of vaudeville managers. On the other hand, tho rest of tho Keith bill can only arouse admiration for tho Intelligent selection. It in hugely entertaining. Mae Mel ville Is as delightfully funny sui ver. Paul Perclra, the court violinist of Portugal, gives I m testimony to tho taste of dethroned kings. Ho Is a musician of rare ability, and Novln'n "Rosary" was nover played with more feeling, restrained passionate pathos, than It Is by Perelrn. Edwin George listed as an "almosi Jugglor" Juggles as entertainingly with light talk ns with tin plates and rubber balls. He Is genuinely diverting. "Nearly Married" at the Garrick Governor Tener, of the sovereign State of Pennsylvania, aided and abetted an elopement last night. This In Itself was reprehensible enough, but his full Iniquity wll bo understood when It Is announced that tho elopement was between a man and his own wife. Just what excuse tho president of the National League will mako rcmalna to bo seen. But nsldo from this ofilclal faux pa, "Nearly Married," which came back to tho Garrick last night with a cast new, with the exception of the star, Bruce McRae, proved a pleasant entertainment. Tho main criticism of tho play, which has been reviewed before, Is Its exceeding sllmness. If brevity be the bou! of wit, then "Nearly Mar ried" Is tho wittiest piny of tho ages, for It lasted Just one hour and 27 minutes. It began at half-past 8 and finished at half-past 10, with two lC-mlnute intermissions. Bruco McRae, who Is a living duplicate in looks and manners nnd speech of Archie Gunn, tho artist, was a bit heavy In the role of the bedeviled husband. Hattle King, tho profes sional corespondent, was fairly true to life, though a bit hard. Gertrude Robinson and John McCabe, as the other wedded couple, did well, aa did Dick GIffcn as tho obnoxious brother. Smaller parts were played, and played well, by Delmar E. Clark as tho East Indian, Beatrice Ingram ns his Irish wife, John Sparks as the Justice of peace, and Danny Day as tho chauf feur. Antoinette Walker was Betty Lindsay, tho foolish heroine. Taken all In all, "Neatly Married" is a merry comedy, broad nt limes, but entertaining never theless, but too brief withal, save for tho in excusably long Intermissions. f-mMimi.

A Striking Miracle Play "Pilate's Daughter," the miracle play by Francis L. Kenzel, a Roman Catholic priest, was produced last night atthe Chestnut Street Opera House. Ono of the unique features of the production Is that there are no male char acters In It. Apart fiom the spectacular aspects of the play, it has a strong religious appeal the ap peal of such plays as "Ben Hur" and "The Sign of thu Cross." "Pilate's Daughter" Is founded on tho old legend 1 elating to the daughter of PontlU3 Pilate. According to this, Claudia, the daughter of the proconsul, threw a rose from her balcony as Christ was being led to Calvary. The flowrr touched his garment, and although It was trod upon by hundreds when tho girl rorovered It, the rose still bloomed. Ten jears later tho perpetually blooming rose was used to work miracles. A spring is mado to giit-h out of the stono prison wall whero the Christian women aro held; a dead child Is brought to life: leason is restored to an unfor tunate woman stricken mad at the time of the crucifixion. Violet ile Bicarrl takes tho part of Claudia, Pllat-Vs daughter, in the first act. and the rolo of later jp.ira, when the girl has grown to woniamioou, is assumed by Constance Moli nc.uix, who displayed consummate skill. Miss Mollneaux's work at all times bore tho stamp of sincerity, especially in her eloquently de livered prayers. , Marion Barney, an old friend of Philadelphia Playgoers, was welcomed back In dual roles, first (.s Claudia Proclea, the wife of Pontius Pilate. later as Agrlpplna, the wlfo of Caesar Although neither part was of a nature to bring out her accomplishments to the best, she acqult tcr herself admirably. Margaret Vryling, as tho Roman sorceress, made the most of tho situa tions that fell to her. In fact, all the members of tho exceptionally largo cast were excellent. Considerable attention has been given to the scenery nnd properties. Some of the spectacu lar effects achieved are remarkable. A curious ami striking lapse is made, however. In the handling of tho Crucifixion In the second scene of net 1. when tho Christ is shown without the thtoe.s that, according to Biblical hlstorj, wcro crucified on either side of the Saviour. Valeska Surratt at Keith's Valcska Surratt, who replaced Mr. and Mrs, Vurnon Castla at Keith's yesterday. Is notable for her gowns principally. Miss Surratt's gowns aro wonderful. They ar worth buying a seat tu see. They are the sort you cannot ordinarily behold In shop windows. There's a personality about them. The personality may be bUarro-but then thero are things one wants to see at least once in a lifetime. Miss Surratt, It must be said. Is an extraor dinary dancer. She possesses a senso of rhythm which places her almost in tho class of must, clans. There la something musical, even tn her most vigorous cavortlngs. Sho is ,ie. cldedly Interesting. Ono would not call her an actress, and her voice is ono of tho mot un appealing ever heard on the stage. But her peisonallty Is distinct, anything but nebulous, ami her scenic settings aro always striking! Mss Surratt appears In "Black Crepe and Diamonds." a modernized symbolic act rem. nlscent of "Everywoman " The Castles were oblige to cancel their engagement because of the Illness of Mrs. Castle. The Castles are, perhars, tho most famed, as well as most lupular dancers In America. If the truth be told, young Jack Mann, who turkey-trots in MUs Surratt's act. Is as notable a daucer In hU way as Vernon Castle He is not quite so dignified, to be sun. but he is more agile, even more graceful. Hla debut-lf It be a debut -le notable Fur he is one of the best dancers that has ever appeared on the stage The c .ntrasts of vaudeville are as striking as they are amazing. MUs Jane Connelly and ""'I'"")' M-jJvan-u jii au act. yclept u. comedy ,i, in' -iviii jut -wn'CU sucoAsr Cartoon Pictures in a Play Thousands of persons have laughed at Georgo McManus' "Bringing Up Father" cartoons. The experiment of taking such burlesque draw Irgs and making them Into a musical comedy Is interesting. In tho case of the musical farce comedy which opened last night at tho Walnut tho feat has been accomplished successfully. The comedy Is indeed as laughable as the popu Hr pictures. "Father," very tough. Initiated Into society by "mother"; a bogus count trying to get "father" to invest in n radium mine, and Tom Hamilton, "father's" business partner, are nmong the in imitably funny characters that go to mako the play ono prolonged slde-spllttlng evening's amusement. While there Is little plot to the comedy, it is replete with Jokes nnd good songs. Of those a number made decided hits "Dear Old Girl," "Just a Littlo Smile." "Love, Love. Love," "A Bandit Raffles." and last, but not lea&t, "The Irish Suffragette." John E. Cain as Jiggs Mahoney (father), and Miss Lydn Kane as Mrs. Jiggs (mother), were adequately and grotesquely humorous, and equally good were Robert G. Rice as the butler, Graco M. Hanson and Blanche Nowcombo as the daughters, Tom Meade. Harry A. Truax. Leo Frank!. Dave Conroy and Madeline Grey. The Empire "Jah, I vos a German, hut I thank Illm mel I'm not there," said Hurry Bentley, who, as Rudolph Sauer, furnished most of the comedy In tho rollicking burlesque, "Tho Love Club," which opened a week's engagement at the Empire yesterday. As presented by tho Rosey Posey Gills tho piece was an unquali fied success. In addition to tho comedy, good singing and splendid dancing were also provided. MAY WALSH, in "Bringing Up Father," at the Walnut. mean the kind of a woman who screams and faints at the sllghtpst provocation, but the woman who prefers tho soft drift of a frill to the aeroplane a.scenslon effects of fashion that are so much In ovidenco today. Tho woman who emanatps tho dainty fragrance of orris In preference to the stronger und heavier per fumes and sachets Indicates delicacy of thought. Tills woman's dress seems part of her; sho eschews all tight clothing nnd Is able so to .stamp a room with her personality that one can feci her presence without a real, tan gible proof of tho fact. "Ah, yes, tho woman who Is womanly nwakons wonder in tho hart of man because sho Is f"o truly feminine, so absolutely spiritual. Spirituality Is not given to man to possess, and man longs for that which he cannot under stand. Therefore, man not only needs, but wants, tho spiritual woman, and none but the truly feminine." Mrs. Fiske in Comedy Despite Mrs. Flsko's association with serious drama, hf-r abilities as a comedienno aro of superlative sprlghtllnnss and brilliance. Her appearance nt the Broad Street Theatre, Octo ber 12, in tho new comedy by John Luther Long and Frank Stayton la an event of thea tre Importance. "Lady Betty .Martingale, or the Adventures of a Lively Hussy" Is an nounced as a comedy In which Mrs. Fiske finds ample opportunity for tlm display of this particular phase of her genius. Lady Betty, living In London In the year 1750, embodies tho gay. frivolous, sport-loving, gaming life of tho period.
