EH HHh fl fl HmHBI -- GH-BSBT&. ll Jl if laHM P LAi HOUSE -?" j, I Nbv. -Jgj r i DOUHTI.KS.S "Tho MlaleaillriR Lady" doesn't measure up to tho subject It utilizes womun's unscrupulous uso of tho sejc-turc. But the farco nt tho Broad Is Just ns anu-alii: for nil that. Indeed Ifs more tlinu likely that tho play's treat ment of the mattor, tdiallow and aupcrfl ' clal ns It Is, kIvcs the farcical chain of events considerable added Interest. And tho chain Is clover enough. Sur prise, fun nnd excitement pile on ono an other. Tho handling of each scctio Is skil ful. Home, such ns tho proposal that starts things coins, aro unusually well written. Wc'vr had so much lovo on the stage, that It's getting very hard to work up tiny enthusiasm over this commonplace emotion. It Is, therefore, no gravo mat tor to the audience, this tricking of the hero Into a. proposal and then the ex posure. Vet the authors and the actors together carry It off with an excellent mixture of reality and romance that al most convinces. What Paul Dickey Docs Toward Naturalism Paul Dickey, ono of tho authors, Is nlso on nctor who does 11 good deal for thla scene and innnv others In tho play. Throughout In? has one curious touch of naturalism In his acting thattv good many more practiced players might profit by. H Is a trick of dropping tho over-clear enunciation nnd high lone of, "acting" every now and then, nnd Saying a fey. words In the ordinal:' fibuvcrsntlonM voice that haidly carries atjjjss the foot-, lights. If Mr. Dickey illdn'tJlek out tho unimportant phrases for tills, It would. only hamper inattcis Instead It gives accent to the Important lines and a gen eral nlr of reality to the whole. The Coincidences of Interviewing By n very curious coincidence tho two actors who do most to carry "Tho Mis leading Lady" Mr. Dickey and Frank Sylvester, who pin, a "Boney" so re markablygave the samo opinion on two points of theatrical debate during Inter views In their sepai ato dressing rooms. Ono was on tho trend of the stage towards the Imaginative; the other on tho hypnosis of acting Mr. DIckoy back fiom h spin In his car, barely In time to dress ventured tho pre diction that the next of the seven-year cycles in popular Interest would tend away from tho melodinmntl, away from tho crook and tho business man, towards tho imaginative. Mr. Sylvester, with more time to wait for his second-act entrance, spoke warmly for the play of romantic lovo. The fnco which retalus no trace of tho staring vacancy of "Boney' and suggests that lovable, If hardly logical, person only In the kindly sensitiveness of the mouth, lit up with a bright Interest as Mr. Syl vester talked of the possibility of a drama full of humanity, nobility, emotion, yet not clouded with the sickly senti mentality to which most of our romantlo plays have been addicted. Hypnotism in the Actor's Art Jlr. Dickey rulllng on a patent leather boot which contrasted curiously with tho rugged, colleg-athloto type about it had a surer phraso for tho two men's notion on acting than had Mr. Sylvester. He called it "hypnotism" tho self-concentration that was necessary to good acting. During a play ho fecla that he "Is" Jack C'ralgen. He throws himself Into -the mood of tho man before he goes on, and he often keeps It after he has left the hut In the third act to seek the girl on the mountain Elder, Mr. Sylvester feels that with anything but the simplest part, it Is next to Impos sible to do It Justice by rushing on after but this Is Mr- Dickey's phrase "kid ding In the wings." "Boney" took a long and careful "study," minute considera tion of Just what the man would wear, mentally and physically, before the pla was produced. It takes the same careful thought before every entrance. Mr. Syl vester wants a few minutes to concen trate on the problem in hand before he Is ready to walk on and achieve tho metamorphosis that brings this very human and lovable lunatic upon the Stage. A Very Different Sort of Theatre A man like Mr. Sylvester, who has made a triumph In the playing of an unusual character, and who looks forward with terror to a swarm of managers trying to furnish him with the same sort of part till doomsday, feels very keenly the lack of the, repertory theatre In America. Mr. Sylvester has tasted something very like It In his days In stock Then, with a new part a week, thero was ntwnys something for him to -whet his art upon, new prob lems to solve, new emotions to create. .Many nn actor looks with envy toward the theatres of Germany. Hero ho works feverishly during tho days of tchearsal and then settles back Into the deadening monotony of weeks, oven seasons', of the same part. The only wny ho may achieve variety i at the price of falluro after failure. In German theatres he Is playing from three to flvo different parts each week, ns tho repertory revolves, theplajt changing each night and recurring ac cording to popular liking for them. That sort of theatre would take a man of Mr. Sylvester's talents nnd attainments and give him n range of parts that would test overy ounco of the artistic In hlB make-up. incidentally, such a theatre, producing Its own plays with Its own company week nfter week, would never And Itself In tho hopeless plight that the Forrest has Just experienced. Here n playhouse Is abso lutely dependent on what men outside send It, upon tho financial vagaries of plays like "90 In the Shade," nnd the nmnngorlnl decisions of the booking pow ers. In Germany If a theatre finds a now production disappointing it merely turns to the more popular pieces of Its own repertory. And neither the management nor tho public suffers. 33&3 An M. D.'s Prescription for King John's Death Tho much-boasted realism of tho actors of modern loles seems destined to be 'eclipsed by a clnsslc actor, Itobert B. Mantell, whose lovo for Shakespearo and the best Shakespearean traditions has not kept him from making his great heroic roles as humanly dramatic as possible. In studying "King John," Mr. Mantell found the stage traditions of Juhu's death meagio nnd very unsatisfactory. lie started out, therefore, on n bold and original plan. Ho called Into consultation his famll. physician, who lives In Biook lyn, nnd uhoso hobby, outside of nn.dl clno. Is Shakespearo. Mantell laid before him all the historical material relative to King John's death ho could find, and said, "Now Doctor, what Is your diag nosis?" Tho physician, after carefully golns over tho whole case, camo to tho conclusion that John died by slow but very virulent nnd painful poslonlng, In which huge bends of perspiration were a startling feature The physician explained to Man tell, step by step, the processes nnd agonies of such n death, and It Is this death in a weird unearthly realism touched by art that tho tragedian portrays. De Wolf Hopper Among the Classics De Wolf Hopper has Joked nnd sung In the beautiful Greek Theatre at the Uni versity of California. Tho Invitation was extended late last summer by tho board of trustees through Ihe chairman. Professor Armes, head of the department of English literature. It was the first time that any artist even remotely connected with the Held of comic opera had ever been Invited to ap pear In this replica of the classic thea tres of ancient Greece. Only the most distinguished legitimate players, and a comparatively small number of these, had up to that time been honored by the university authorities with a request to give a performance thero, and only classic plays had hitherto been presented upon the stately stage. Mine. Sarah Bernhardt had appeared In "Phaodre," Miss Margaret Angliu had presented "Antigone" and Miss Maude Adams nnd a large company had Journeyed direct to San Francisco from New York for one presentation of "As You Like It." Mr. Hopper, who wua planning a le- vlval of "Trial by Jury," the delicious one-act satiro on courts of law which marked the first successful collaboration of sir AVIIllam Schwcnck Gilbert nnd Sir Arthur HulIUan, decided to make the first piesontntlon of that piece there. The porformanco was given on the afternoon of September M In tho presence of an audience which numbered 7100 persons. Mr. Hopper, of course, nppearcd as the Judco who fell In lovo with the plaintiff In the breach of promise case on trial be fore him j Arthur Aldrldgo appeared as the defendant and Arthur Cunningham was tho usher. Tho presentation was an unqualified succcjH, and "Trial by Jury" wat per manently retained In tho company's rep ertoire, belna given In conjunction with "Plnaforo." Mr. Hopper tells of an amusing Incident In connection with the performance at tho Greek Theatro When It wns over there was a great outburst of applause, and more than a hundred lusty-lunged students In all parts of tho vast audi torium began to chout "Casey." "I wap nppnllod," snld Mr. Hoppor, "nt tho prospect of reciting such a thing as 'Casey' under such classic surroundings, but tho calls for It began to grow louder and louder. I raised my hand to still the noise, but the clamor grew nnd grew. Suddenly. I cnught tho eyo of Professor Amies, who wns sitting Just beneath mo In the fiont low. 1 was astonished bc .otid words to notice that he, too, wns yelling for 'Casey' with nil the enthu siasm of n freshman chcor-loadcr. That sctlcd It for me. I gave It lo them, though my senso of good taste rather re volted nt the Idea. Professor Armes nnd tho other trustees Just laughed at the In cident afterward, und proved themselves to bo legular human beings." "My First Lines" TO SER our favorite dramatic stars saunter about tho stage quite as though they were there Ilrst and the stage sotting had been built around them, ns a sort of after-thought. It Is difficult to Imagine thorn timidly stepping forth bofore tho footlights for t'ne first time and saying their very first professional lines. But as there Is a "first" for every thing, they naturally went through that more or less thrilling experience. What were their llrst words? What was the play? Where, and when nnd what parts and 'now old were they? A number of the most prominent players now before tho public havo answered all these In teresting questions for a writer in the Theatre Magazine, and here Is what they said: Otis Skinner Yes, sir, it is I" "Thoso were my first lines," said Otis Skinner, "nnd I fear I put altogether too much emphasis on them, for I was tear fully Impressed with the Importance of my very small part. It wns In tho play 'H'oodlclgh,' produced at Wood's Mu seum, In rhllndelphln, October 30, 1877. My salary was JS a week, and tho part I had was 'Old Plantation,' a negro. Kobcrt Mantell "HaUt" Itobert Bruce Mantell' "first lines" consisted of ono sentence of ono word. Ho was tho Sergeant In "Arrah-na-rogue," nt tho Theatre Royal, Itochdalo, Knulnnd, In October, 1S76. Ills ngo was 22. "My Scotch parentB did not npprovo of my dcslro to becomo nn nctor, so they npprcntlccd me to a wine merchant. But I rnn away and managed to get a place In tho "Arrah-na-Pogue" Company tinder the name of "It. Hudson,' and you may believe t'nat Mr. R. Hudson was very proud In his sergeant's uniform as he exclaimed' 'Halt!' " Henry Miller "What does joiir grace meant" Honry John Miller asked that question LAST ACTS ill William Archer. If It were ns easy to write a good last act as a good first net wo should bo nble to reckon three masterpieces for every ono that wo can nnmo at picscnt. A7.V HU.PEGIN.

William Pavcrshnm "He jests at scats who never felt a wound!" thundered 16-yenr-old William Faversham, nt I.ndbrook Hall, London, I'liKland, Fobiuary 17, 1S17. It was his vcrv first appearance on the professional stage, nnd he had a part In "Ilomeo nnd Juliet." Cyril Maude "Tho carriage waits at the door, mod ante." "I was 21 when I apoko my first lines on the stage," fnld Cyill Francis Maude, "and I nppearcd In that old stnndby, East Lnno,' nt tho Tabor Opera House, In Denver, Colo, with Daniel Bandmnnn. 1 cannot remember the date, about 40 yearn ago, I think." William II. Crane "In consideration of Ma'mscllc, Marie de Rcrkencldt being milfCfl to Archam tiaii'e Duke de Grandtetc, Madame Pris cilia de Rerkcnfeldt, aunt of the said Marie, agrees to sctlc upon the husband certain ftcrein named cjfofes, the Duke de Orandtetc on his part merely bestowing upon his Duchess his ancient rind heredi tary Mies." For a "flrst-llnc." William H. Crane seems to have had a record-breaker. "The date was July 13, 1S63. I was the Notary In 'The Daughter of tho Regi ment,' In Mrs. Harriet Holman's com pany, and was 18 years old, my pay being the training and my board." CHESTNUT ST.
