with drama, is that there are not enough
successes to fill the theaters.
'There are plenty of audiences." aaya
Mr. Woods, "if they are given what
they want. 'There 1 nothing the mat

just as solid, .substantial.' and plenti

produced a manager doea not have to
worry-about audiences."
This statement has been substantiated
by "Gypsy Love," which Is now playing
at Daly's Theater, London, and from
present Indications will remain there
several month longer. It la pro
nounced the biggest musical hit which
London ha eer enjoyed. When it was
first produced several months ago by
George Edwardea. England's foremost

opinion which has been backed by
America s ' reception of the operetta.
Washington theatergoers gave two
new productions the stamp of approval
last week, one being the American
premiere of "Our Wives." with Henry
Kolker In the leading role, at the Na
tional, and the other, "Never Say Die,"
the new farce written frankly for the
exploitation of the peculiar talent of
William Collier.
"Our Wives.' which I- the American
ized version of the German piece orlr-
Inally produced under the title of "The
Friends of Our Youth." with Its change
a uue ana locale, justified here the
favorable criticisms it received In the
various countries across the Bur Creek
in which It was produced before Joseph
m. uaues secured me right of It
American production. The piece 1 a
delicate satire with a decided strain of
sentiment; clever In lines; clean in pur
pose, and was given It American debut
in this ctty last Monday night by a
well balanced con-fcany of skillful play
ers which brought out all the shade
which stamp the piece a a comedy of
character.
"Our Wives" goes dlrectlr to New York
from Its Washington premiere with every
promise or a successful metropolitan run.
William Collier new farce "Never
Say Die," which was given Its Initial per
formance In Rochester, N. Y., the week
preceding Its presentation here, wa well
received at the Belasco last week. Writ
ten by Mr. Collier In conjunction with
W. H. Post, the piece furnishes a de
lightful evening- dominated by the fa
mous farceur's irrisistlble characteriza
tion of one Dlonyslua Woodbury, whose
failure to fulfill his physician's prom
ise of death within a month gets him
self into predicaments which are provo
cative of uncontrollable laughter on the
part of his audience. The Impossible tale
which the play tells Is so interlarded
wun tne "joiner type or repartee, so
brimful of the Collier personality, that
weak points in construction are forgot

Never Say Die" adds another link to
the chain of productions which Mr. Col
lier has helped to write, as well as as
sured success by his Inimitable gift of
comedy.
