A Music Show Comes to Town; War Drama and Comedy Also Alice Brady, denying her buxom presence to the silversheet, is audibly presenting herself to the favor of Washingtonians at the Be lasco this week in a sensational comedy, "Forever After," of which you will find more in another column of this invaluable playgoers' page. Richard Carle, who, we hope, is as whimsically funny as he was in his Chicago heyday, is New National-ing this week in "Ftfrs and Frills," of which also more anon. Poll's remains faithful to war melodrama?British war melodrama. And with good reason. We enjoyed "Under Orders" as a real novelty. A cast of two is something ? -for any manager to brag about in the best Wall Street circles. Any ' kind of substantial success for it means a small fortune for AI Woods. We are interested in the fate of "A Very Good Young Man," J the first Hopkins production of the season. It is either going to be a huge hit on Broadway, or it will be a swift failure. We think it is almost certain to be a success. If there has been a better farce comedy in Washington in the past tea months we have failed to glimpse it. "Business Before Pleasure" Booked For a Two-weeks' Stay. Poll's is become the local terminus lor A. H. Woods' produc tions, and consequently, the announcement that the new Potash and Perlmutter show, "Business Before Pleasure," which ran all last sea son in New York, will be seen ior a fortnight engagement there in September is only the expected. "White Coupons," the musical fantasy, the story of which was written by L. Monta Bal), a Washington newspaper man, registered a distinct hit at the Palace Theater in New York last Monday. _ Emily Ann Wellman and Jack Morris, who will be remembered to Washingtonians as the producer? of "Where Things Happen," which was seen at Keith's several week?* ago, are the producers. Miss Welltr.an also adapted th? music and the book for production. Henry I. Marshall, who is responsible for the music of the pro a duction, is a well-known composer who has such hits as "On the 5:15" and "Mary, You're a Little Bit Old-fashioned" to his credit. 1 Barrett Greenwood is the featured member of the cast which also I includes Dorothy Pcndleton, Judith Voss and Billy Adams. I The New York Telegraph, in its review of the act, said: "For vaudeville "White Coupons' is a simon-pure novelty. If some big producer had had the good sense to have thought of wed ding an allegorical idea to music as is the case in this act the results would have been tenfold ior the investment. "As the curtain rises we sec a shop where they dispense coveted coupons. The little maid behind the counter dare not give away 'Happiness' which is as difficult of acquiring as it is in real life. He conies upon the scene. He is in search of unalloyed bliss. He offers the maid 100 red coupons. They are not negotiable. White coupons are needed. Whereupon with the shifting scenes we are taken to Broadway and the Bright Lights, his conception of joy and happiness. A good bit of this is symbolized in song while she flourishes the magic lamp and shows him the meaning of it all. "The vampire woman, all loveliness and sensuous, conies upon the scene and he is between the real and the painted love. But at last we find him waving the tempter away and taking the right course. "Another effective picture is that of a kid who dotes on baseball. It is through kindness to him that Happiness is finally accorded Broadwav." Twelve years ago when Da? id Wark Griffith presented a dreary drama of his own anthorahip under the title of "? Fool and a Giri," In the t'olumbia Theater, with Fannie Ward In the stellar role. It waa not at all apparent that he was destined to become the foremost director of > nieniatographic entertainment In ths world. Hi., activities since that luck le?? ?-enture, which resulted in his affiliation with the old Biograph Com pany, have blazed the way of prog re?? for the motion picture. The first innovation introduced by thi? wizard of the camera wa? the utilization of the close-up and the cut-back, two devices that have done more to bring a likelife quality to the silent drama than any other tricks ?Inge originated. Subsequently Mr. Griffith startled the theatergoing pub li?? by announcing that he had com pleted a picture so gigantic and s ? vivid in ita depiction of a crucial l*eriod in the history of the nation that It might be viewed only at a sesie of price? ranging up to 12. His next Gargantuan endeavor was stag gering in its magnitude, despite the fact that "Intolerance," by reason of s scattered story, waa not the popular success of Its predecessor. Far from discouraged, Mr. Griffith went to Kurope. where the war was raging, to film there scenes which his asso ciates In the industry were trying to Mmulate on this side of the Atlantic Ptiy feeble reproductions of the blood ^ drenched trenches of France. The utilization of the genuine setting. In stead of a makeshift, was typical of the Griffith Idea of how thing? may beet be done. It has remain?1?!, however, in spite of all his previous departures from convention, for "The Great Love." his latest picture, to disclose the whole power of the premier direc tor's genius for producing effects of actuality. In this gripping war-sub ject Mr. Grifllth not only has em ployed a cast of superlative merit, including Henry B. Walthall. "Bob ble" Haeron. Lillian Gish, George Slegmann, George Fawcett and many other stars, but he has also suc ceeded in incorporating into the logi cal development of his semi-flctional story scenes participated in by Queen Alexandra. Lady Drogheda, Lady Diana Manners, the Princess of Mon aco and many other members of the British court circle. This pic ture will be shown at the Strand next week. Riciiard Carle, the famous come dian-star of "Furs and Frills." at th? New National Theater thla week, ?ay? that ?oldler? make critical audi ences. No one should know better than he. for Mr. Carl? passed the 1 summer months presenting "Furs and k Frills'' over the entire circuit of [Liberty theaters, playing to an aver f age of 2,00?) nightly. Speaking of his work before the sol fier?. Mr. Carle said: "I have had ? long career playing before all sorts ?f audienoe? in all sort? of places, but I must give the palm for beine ?liticai >o th? soldier boys It is .?possible to put over any old ?tuff >n them. They want the best and ?rill pationize only the best musical shows. "But they make good audiences, for ?Ji?y know what they want and there ? great satisfaction in playing to ladlenees who know what they want tod who appreciate it when I hey get t. And certainly no one can acouse l?? ?oldler? of any lukewaru-neaa in heir reception of anything which ??ally does appeal to them." It la Interesting to note. In this co?. ??ction. that Richard Carl? waa the lr?t American (tar to offer hi? service 'or th? entertainment of tho soldiers ? camp. He played th? entire circuit, *Fur? and Frill?." receiving a most ?rdial reception ?very?? here and the verfc of Mr. Carle making an especial lit with th? boy?. I There ara tew -areers in the Amel aran theater that parallel that of Alice Iradjr. Mita Brady ia today ta. pot sessor of an enviable placa In the af fections of the ptaysoins; and motion picture publics. She haa ha-M re maritatila- successful In both Pol-Is. and fon the sta?? la equally at home In ? drama, comedy and lU-ht c-eras. Prior to her desertion of the foot I lights, for the motion picture ; studios som? three years ago. Mia? ? Brady had achieved ?ub?tantlal per | sonai succea??s in "The Things that , Count." "Little Women," "Sinners" j and as the prima donna of that all I ?tar cast gathered for the notable : revival of the Gilbert, and Sullivan j operas at the Forty-eighth Street 'Theatre. New York. Since her last appearance on the speaking stage. Miss Brady has be come one of the most successful of screen stars. Today she is known ? wherever motten pictures are ! shown and her admirers are legion. She is returning to the stage In "Forever After," in a role said to fit her admirably. "Forever Attar" written by Owen Davis and described as a play of to day will be at the Belaaco Theatre for one week beginning tomorrow, Monday evening. An idea of the irreat Joy brought to our soldiers abroad by the presenta tion of amusing play? is to be derived from an account of the reception ac corded "Officer tV"?"" In France. A recital of the exc?s? of Joy man.festeti by our righting men may be the means of inducing more managers to con tribute their plays to this good cau?c, ?ay? Rennold Wolf. The account of the production of "Officer ???" comes from private Clark Sllvernail, who was employed as an actor with Cohan & Harris -om; anies before the war. At Silvernall's re ; quest. Sam Forrest, general stage di rector for Cohan A. Harris, tent abroad a balfh of manuscripts, and Sllvernail haa written r.im as follows: "You can't imagine how great a suc cess Officer 0%' was. and what It did for the Area. We played it ten times here, then, by request of the American Consul. <tt one of th? real pinces In France. We went there to help a drive for the French prisoners of war, and it wa? glorious.

Miss Brady Ins ever been a fa vorite of tbe theatergoing public as her performances in "The Things That Count," 'Little Women," "Sinners," and in the prima donna roles of the ? Gilbert ?nd Sullivan operas, earned for her an unusual plate In the affections of playgoers. Three years ago she deserted the stage for the screen, and In that short time has achieved world wide popularity as a motion pic ture star. In "Forever After" Miss Brady is asid to have a role to which she is eminently fitted. Mr. Davi? Is said to have written an unusual play of romance, of youth and the war. The story is told In three acts and in ss niiny episodes that carries the spectator from a battle field in France to a quiet country vlllsge in Vermont.
