Margaret Anglin in Notable Revival
Margaret Anglln Is ono of tho really com
paratively few great living actresses. One
speaks of "great living actresses" tho majority
of great actresses, of course, being dead. Tho
same Is Inevitably truo of great, very great,
However, MIbs Anglln Is very much allvo so
much so that her husband figures In automo
bile nrrests whllo she, herself, revives a play
written by ono of tho most brilliant men of
tho century a man to whom, lying In a grave
In Montmartro, has como a full and deserved
recognition for surpassing wit and genius.
"Lady Wlndermero's Fan," In which Miss
Anglln appeared last night at the Broad Street
Thcatro, Is a play of admlrablo technique, an
evening's dramatic menu In whlcb evory courso
Is served with tartar sauce. Thero has never
been a moro seductive, a more subtle, a moro
delightfully worldly Mrs. Erlynno than the ono
presented by Miss Anglln. Miss Anglln makes
that brilliant woman, of a dubious character,
really winning. On tho stage this typo usually
Isn't. . In AVIldo's play this woman, trngical in
her life, becomes a mother desirous of protect
ing her child. Mrs. Erlynno Is perhaps the
most appealing character In tho Wilde plays.
As such, Miss Anglln played tho part with an
Intellectual understanding, an artistic restraint
which Wildo himself would havo admired.
If "Lady Windermere's Fan" Is already an
anachronism so far as upper Fifth avenue or
Rlttcnhouse Square arc concerned. Its satire
on social and human frailty Is quite as apropos
as when Wlldo wroto It. As a play It Is far
superior to tho Eugcno Walter and 'Gus Thomas
productions as they attempt to deal, seriously
or otherwise, with social and other problems.
Miss Anglln's cast is admirable. Ruth Holt
Bouclcault is a sclntlllant Duchess of Berwick.
Florcnco Carpenter, ns Lady Windermere, was
Insinuatingly captivating. While hldney Green
street played Lord Lorton Incomparably, there
havo been much better Lord Wlndermeres than
that enacted by Leonard Wllley, the heralded
Australian star. Mr. Wllley wa3 a bit too In
tense too Intense, you know. Altogether, Miss
Anglln's revival Is notable. It 13 perhaps one
of the best, If not tho best, presentation of
Oscar Wilde's delectable play.
A Striking Miracle Play
"Pilate's Daughter," the miracle play by
Francis L. Kenzel, a Roman Catholic priest,
was produced last night at the Chestnut Street
Opera House. Ono of tho unique features of
tho production Is that there aro no malo char
acters In It.
Apart ftom tho spectacular aspects of tho
play, It has a strong religious appeal tho ap
peal of such plays as "Ben Hur" and "The Sign
of the Cross." "Pilate's Daughter" Is founded
on the old legend relating to tho daughter of
Pontius Pilate. According to this, Claudia, tho
daughter of the proconsul, threw a rose from
hor hnlcony as Christ was being led to Calvary.
The flowfr touched his garment, and although
it was trod upon by hundreds when tho girl
recovered It, the rose still bloomed.
Ton years later tho perpetually blooming rose
was used to work miracles. A spring Is made
to gush out of tho stone prison wall where the
Christian women are held: a dead child Is
brought to life; reason Is restored to an unfor
tunato woman stricken mad at the time of the
Violet de Blcarrl takes the part of Claudia,
Pilatu's daughter. In the first net, and tho role
of later years, when the girl has grown to
womanhood. Is assumed by Constance Molt
nonux, who displayed consummate skill. Miss
Molineaux's work at all times bore the stamp
of sincerity, especially In hor eloquently de
livered prayers. ,
Marlon Barney, an old friend of Philadelphia
playgoers, was welcomed back In dual roles,
first as Claudia Proclea. the wife of 1,'ontlus
Pilate, later as Agrlpplna, the wife of Caesar.
Although neither part was of a nature to bring
out her accomplishments to tho best, she acqult
ter herself admirably. Margaret Vryling. as the
Roman sorceress, made the most of tho situa
tions that fell to her. In fact, all the members
of tho exceptionally large cast were excellent.
Considerable attention has been given to tho
scenery nnd properties. Some of tho spectacu
lar effects achieved are remarkable, A curious
and striking lapse Is made, however. In the
handling of tho Crucifixion In the second scene
of act 1, when the Christ Is shown without the
thieves that, according to Biblical history, were
crucified on either side of tho Saviour.
Valeska Surratt at Keith's
Valeska Surratt, who replaced Mr. and Mrs.
Vernon Castle at Keith's yesterday. Is notable
for her gowns principally. Miss Surratt's
gowns arc wonderful. They are worth buying
a scat to see. They are tho sort you cannot
ordinarily behold In shop windows. There's a
personality about them. The personality may
be bUarre but then there are things one wants
to seo at least once In a lifetime.
Miss Surratt, It must be said, is an extraor
dinary dancer. She possesses a sense of rhythm
which places her almost In tho class of mus
clans. There Is something musical, even In
her most vigorous cavortlngs. She Is de.
cidedly interesting. One would not call her an
actresB, and hor voice Is one of the most un
appealing ever heard on the stage. But her
personality Is distinct, anything but nebulous,
und her scenic settings aro always striking!
Miss Surratt appears In "Black Crepo nna'
Diamonds," a modernized symbolic act reml
ntscent of "Everywoman" Tho Castles were
obliged to cancel their engagement because of
the Illness of Mrs. Castle. The Castles are,
porhars. tho most famed, as well as mot
popular dancers In America. If the truth bo
told, young Jack Mann, who turkey-trots in
Miss Surratt's act. Is as notable a dancer In
his way as Vernon Castle. He Is not quite so
dignified, to be sure, but he Is moro agile,
even more graceful His debut-lf it be a debut
-Is notable For he Is one of the best dancers
that has ever appeared on tho stae
boring one. It la a high-water mark of
banality and bathos, and a typo of tho sort
of thing which makes ono wonder at tho tem
porary mental comas of vaudeville managers.
On the other hand, the rest of tho Keith bill
can only nrotise ndmlratlon for tho Intelligent
selection. It Is hugely entertaining. Mae Mel
ville Is as delightfully funny as ever. Paul
Pcrelro, the court violinist of Portugal, glvos
testimony to tho tusto of dethroned kings. Ho
Is a musician of raro ability, nnd Ncvln'-i
"Rosary" was nver played with morr fueling,
restrained passionate pathos, than It Is by
Perclrn. Edwin George listed as an "almost
Juggler" Juggles as entertainingly with light
talk as with tin plates and rubber balls. He
Is genuinely diverting.
"Nearly Married" at the Garrick
Governor Tener, of tho 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 the elopement was
between a man and his own wife. Just what
excuse tho president of the National League will
mako remains to bo seen. But aside from this
official faux pas, "Nearly Married," which ennio
back to the Garrick last night With a cast now,
with tho exception of the star, Bruco McRao,
proved a pleasant entertainment.
Tho main criticism of the play, which has
been reviewed before, Is Its exceeding sllmncss.
If brevity be tho soul of wit, then "Neatly Mar
ried" Is tho wittiest play of tho ages, for It
lasted Just one hour and 27 minutes. It began
at half-past S and finished at half-past 10, with
two 15-mlnute Intermissions.
Bruco McRne, who Is a living duplicate In
looks and manners nnd speech of Archie Gunn,
thn artist, was a bit heavy in the role of the
bedeviled husband. Hattlo King, tho profes
sional corespondent, was fairly truo to life,
though a bit hard. Gertrude Robinson and John
McCabe, as the other wedded couple, did well,
as did Dick Glffon as tho obnoxious brother.
Smnllcr parts were played, and played well, by
Dolmar E. Clark ns tho East Indian, Beatrice
Ingram as his Irish wife, John Sparks as tho
Justlco of peace, and Danny Day as the chauf
feur. Antoinette Walker was Betty Lindsay, the
foolish heroine.
Taken all In all, "Nearly Married" Is a merry
comedy, broad at times, but entertaining never
theless, but too brief withal, save for tho In
excusably long Intermissions.
Cartoon Pictures in a Play
Thousands of persons have laughed at Gcorgo
McManus' "Bringing Up Father" cartoons.
The experiment of taking such burlesque draw
lrgs and making them Into a musical comedy is
Interesting. In the case of tho musical farco
comedy which opened last night at the Walnut
the feat has been accomplished successfully.
The comedy Is Indeed as laughable as the popu
lar pictures.
"Father," very tough. Initiated Into society by
"mother"; a bogus count trying to get "father"
to Invest In a radium mine, and Tom Hamilton,
"father's" business partner, are among the in
imitably funny characters that go to make the
play one prolonged side-splitting evening's
While there Is little plot to the comedy, It is
replete with jokes and good songs. Of these
n number made decided hits "Dear Old Girl,"
"Just a Little Smile," "Love, Love, Love," "A
Bandit Raffles," and last, but not least, "The
Irish Suffragette."
John E. Cain as Jlggs Mahoney (father), nnd
Miss Lyda Kane as Mrs. Jiggs (mother), were
adequately and grotesquely humorous, and
equally good were Robert G. Rice ns the butler,
Grace M. Hanson and Blanche Newcombe as
the daughters, Tom Meade, Harry A. Truox,
Leo Frankel, Dave Conroy and Madellno Grey.
The Empire
"Jah, I vos a German, but I thank Hlm
mel I'm not there," said Harry 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 the
Rosey Posey Girls the piece was an unquali
fied success.
In addition to tho comedy, good singing and
splendid dancing wero also provided.
"People talk of beauty of mind, and develop
the Intellect by hard study, but when tha
spirit Is spoken of they smile and speak of
religious attitudes," declared Edith Campbell
Walker, who plays the part of tho professional
corespondent in "Nearly Married." "Now, to
bo beautiful a woman must develop the spirit
ual side of her nature. By spirituality I do
mean a highly developed mentality, the free
dom of mind given by the civilized forms of
education, but the developed soul of an Individ

from the eyes and expresses kindliness and
beautiful thinking In every thought, word and
"This spirituality can be applied to the most
trivial things of life. Simplicity Is its keynote,
nnd therefore the beautiful girl Is tho natural
girl. Now, this natural girl does not rely upon
the cold cream for her beautiful complexion.
She never maintains that water ruins the skin
and Intists upon enlarging her pores with
every unnecessary application of cold cream.
She keeps her mind bright and radiant first.
"The dangerously beautiful woman is femi

tho aetoplano ascension effects of fashion that
aro so much In evldcnco today. Tho woman
who emunates the dainty fragrance of orrlB In
preference to tho stronger nnd heavier pcr
fumes and sachets Indicates delicacy of
thought. This woman's dress seems part of
her; she eschews all tight clothing and Is ablo

one can feel her presence without a real, tan

"Ah, yes, the woman who Is womanly
awakens wonder In tho heart of man becauso
shn Is so truly feminine, so absolutely spiritual.
Spirituality Is not given to man to possess, and
man longs for that which he cannot under

Mrs. Fiske in Comedy
Despite Mrs. Kiske's association with serious
drama, her abilities as a comedlenno aro of
superlative sprightllncss and brilliance. Her
appearance at tho Broad Street Theatre, Octo
ber 12, in tho now comedy by John Luthor
Long and Frank Stnyton Is an event of thca
tro importance. "Lady Betty Martingale, or
the Adventures of u Lively Hussy" is an
nounced as n comedy In which Mrs. Flsko
finds ample opportunity for the 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
the period. Hounded by creditors and pur
sued by n. rich but elderly and repug
nant suitor, she seeks to find a way out
of her difficulties by marrying a political pris
oner In Newgate who Is condemned to death.
