Plays and Players Reviewed for Capital Theatergoers and Movie Fans
Two New Productions Bid For Washington's Approval Truly, Washington's position ii enviable among the cities, viewed fr?m the standpoint of the theater-goer. More and more, as the great ?V moves into its fifth year, does this fact become apparent. Wash ington, in the autumn of 1918, has established beyond cavil the fact that its rejection or approval of any production can no longer be scorned by the arrogant ones of Broadway. WASHINGTON, THE ARBITER. ? Hither come the plays, the pretensions, the modest, the artistic, the rollicking and the tragic to pass before the bar and obtain a judgment that is passed along and echoed, time after tune, by the city on the Hudson, which for so long swayed America with its theatrical mandates. A new Daniel, however, has come to judgment, in the form of the luity war Capital on the banks of the Potomac, and now come the magnates these days with their offerings to be analyzed seiore the footlights of the Capital. TWO NEW PLAYS BID FOR HONORS. . The current week, therefore, opens with at least two producers bidding for that approval which has come to be so valuable?nay, ?? vital?to a play'* final test before a Broadway audience. One of these, "Glorianna," a musical play, with Eleanor Painter and a company of sixty people, which opens tomorrow night at the National, is the second of. John Cort's production* of the current season. The studious theater-goer will remember Cort's first offer ing, "Fiddler's Three," the success of which in Washington a few weeks ago, was repeated at its opening in New York. JANE COWL IN COMEDY. The other, "Information, Pleaael" brings to Washington at Poli'? tomorrow night, that finished artist, Miss Jane Cowl, who, quite inci dentally, also appears as the co-carpenter of the same production which she wrote in collaboration with Jane Murfin, her co-worker in two previous plays, "Lilac Time" and "Day Break." CAPITAL TO SEE "THE COPPERHEAD." Mention of the Belasco's offering, "The Copperhead," is delayed to this point in the review simply because of its seasoned nature. "The Copperhead," Augustus Thomas' classic of the great war, comes to Washington tomorrow night. Its reputation is already established as the foremost production of I9?7- It was, in fact, "the great Amer ican play" of last season. - 1 ?User, t* Mr. Grlffltaaf The presentation of "The Hun Within." a photoplay.

The ?cene Is an Illinois hamlet and the characters are moetly ? ?lain farmer folk. The play. Which was suggested by a story written by Hon Frederick Land I?, ef Indiana. nnd called "The Glory of His Coun try." concerns the fortunes of one I Milton Bhanka, a farmer. It i* ?U ?4?a twA, two ?nwcha. Th? tm epoch Is placed in the year 1?61 Juat j as the president haa called for 75,000 I volunteers to crush the rebellion in the South. Nearly all Shanks' neigh? bora have rallied to the call, and his reluctance to join them puts him under suspicion. Diatruat of him is further increased by the feet that he ia a member of a secret order called "The Knights of tho Qolden Circle." The?? "knights" are popularly known ?aa "copperheads," because of their habit of wearing- In their buttonholes a copper penny with the liberty head on it. They profess to be lovers of peace, but really are supportera of the Southern rebels. In "The Copperhead" Lionel Barry more haa the most ambitious role he haa ever essayed.

Blanche Ring, "America's favor ite singing comedienne," will be the lure for laugh-lover? at B. F. Keith's Theater this week, and the popular divinity of song and story promises her cleverest vaudeville contribution. Introducing her very latest Broadway hits, "My Ameri can Ace on High." "The Dooleys Are Doing Their Bit,- "Kicking the Kaiser Around" and other appeals to the spirit of the hour. Waves of laughter will engulf the audience during the burlesque turn of Joe Jackson, "the original," whose hobo bikery Is familiar to vaudeville be tween the two oceans to East and West of here. Jackson ia a panto mlmist of real artiattc merit and to this inherent skill he adda a gen uine sense of mirth. Herbert Clif ton Is fresh from the Broadway shows in which he has been ape cially featured ln the same trav esty he will do here, in which he holds the mirror up to certain types of feminine character, notably his chef d*oeuvre, the scrub-lady. Felix Rush will be featured, with adequate comedy support, in "Cros by's Corners," one of those bucolic outburst? of fun in which songs in close harmony are such a pleasing Insertion.

Reynolds and Florence Mills sharin,? headline honor?. Thi? season's ver sion of the classic "Rounders" is ! ?aid to be entirely new from start to finish, with the single exception that Reynold* is again seen in his original character creation of "Jacob Rosen bloom." and the situations he man ages to get into and with equal dex terity extricate himself from, form I the basis of the fun-making. Miss Mills, with her numerous gown creation? and charming personality, is ?aid to be at her best Incidentally, this Is Miss Mills' farewell tour, for at the close of th? -eason. she will desert the spesking stage for the silent stage of the moving picture ecreen. An exceptionally larg? cast Is engaged In the support of the stars, includ- ; ing John Quigg, billed a? "the man with the accordion." Hi? ?pecialtyj during which he plays on request any song called for by members of j the audience, is one of the out- ; standing hits. Mildred Tyson, a tiny bit of feminine beauty, will be ( seen to particular advantage In tbe Ingenue role. C. Elwood Fa ber, I character comedian, and Eva Suede I and George Klnnear are the remain ing principals. A chorus of unusual | beauty is a feature. Calne? Same Hire and His DaffTdtlU. Sam Rice and His Daffvdills Is the attraction at the Casino Theater this week starting with the matinee to day. This has been one of the most popular shows on the burlesque stsge for a number of seasons and Is said ' to be in top-notch form this season \ Sam Rice himself heads the troupe ' and Is featured In both th? travesti?.-s that go to make up the ?how. Lulu Beason, one of the most entertainms CONTINUED ON PAOE THREE. Miss Jane Cowl on Beauty Some year? ago an enterprising young press agent heralded Jane Cowl, who will be seen at Poll's Theater this week in "Information. Please." as the most beautiful woman on the stage. She didn't thank the press agent then, nor does she now. In her mind he imposed an awful handi cap on on? poor frail woman. Outside of the chorus, ln the opinion of Miss Cowl, beauty Is of scant value to the actress. Being beautiful herself, she can afford to scoff at lt. In fact, she Is not willing to con cede that It was of even the slight est assistance to her in her amaz ingly rapid rise to atellar honors of the stage. "As far as I have ever been able to discover," ?aid Miss Cowl, the other day, in answer to a direct question as to what part she thought good look? would be of help to a girl aspiring for ?tage honors, "beauty itself never really carried anyone very far. I'll ad mit." she continued, "that it Is of decided advantage securing one an introduction?there's no use denying that It does help to get an opening? but it has never brought advance hent to any woman unless ehe com bined it with oth?r qualities. More often than not it la a hindrance rather than an asset in her career "I mean hindrance in this way: The beautiful girl, gettine her hear in?? promptly and with compara tively little effort is in danger of thinking that bar beauty -alone will ?a-MTjr her ?ions Hi? who?? way." Next Week ?rational?Two Bla, r? GlrL" "The Riviera Girl." a musical com edy which mixes humor, melody, satire, drama and scenic effect* and costume?, as they have not been com bined in years, will be the attraction at the National, starting Sunday, September 22.

Miss Sylvia de Frankie. Henry Mowbray. W. Ro maine. Barney Norton, Nelson Riley, Mia? Clara Henry, Roy Cutter and Kdwia Taylor, as well as a large chorus of pretty and sprightly girls. Joseph Urban Is responsible for the pictures of uncommon loveliness which m?ke up the background of the three act?. Bolton and Wode house have written the book, and Kaiman haa provided a melodious score. Poll*??"Basisela, Before Pleasare. Playgoers of Washington will need but little introduction to "Business Before Pleasure," the sensational Eltinge. Theater ?ucee?? which A. H. Wood? will present at Folia Theater | on Sunday evening.

In the new comedy bv Montague Gasatati creator of the original char retera, and Jules Eckert Goodman. lhe noted playwright the famous partner?, "Potash and Permutter." have retired from the cloak ?nd suit nade for the mor* exciting business ?f producing "morte?." That their new environment has pro*. ? popular and that "Abe" and Mawruss" are funnier than ever aa "fillum mag nates," is demonstrated by the fact that hundreds were turned away at every performance at the Eltinge Theater. It has tfoen many years since New York ha? laughed so heartily and continuously in the theater. The new comedy will be presented by the originel New York eaat. in cluding Barney Bernard and Alexan der Carr in their original roles. Belaseo?Mate. Berth* Kalleh. The engagement of Mme.
