And "The Beauty
cal Comedies,
Make Week Hajp
py,One. WITH 'Tollynna" nt the Na
tional this week, 'The
Only Girl" at the BcIqhco,
afyi "The Beauty Shop" at tho Poli(
jnenver, mere win do no uijponu
nity for indulgence in deep depres
sion. There might possibly bo room for
bouI cleansing tear or two of
sheer happiness at the sweetness of
"pojlyanna," but as far as "The
Only Girl" and "The Beauty Shop"
are concerned,1 even sadly sweet
tears arc out of the question.
"?oJlyanna" Is the play made from
'thejbook of the came name by Eleanor
.Porter, presented by Kluw & Kr
langcr and George Tyler, and played by
'. company Includfn-t Patricia Colllnse
and' otheri of sterling reputation.
.The Only Girl" Is a. Herbert nml
.Bfosuon rriifllcal comedy which has been
jhere before, earlier In this season, but
which Is still enjoying popularity. Just
a( "did Its sister creations, "The Red
Mill," "Mme. Modiste," and othcis by
the same composers.
"The Beauty Shop," In which Ray
mond Hitchcock will bo recalled, will
present the Toll Players In the role of
musttal comedy artists. The consist
ently excellent character of the work of
this organisation which seems to be
ing percullarly to this city is sufficient
recommendation for :iny attraction
which they may present.
The special performance of "Ilcilda
Qftbler," which was to have been elven
tomorrow night at the Poll Theater, has
been postponed. The regular perform
ance of "The Beauty Hhnp" Will be
National: "Pollyanna."
.OLLYANNA" will reach the
local stage ut the' National
Theator for an engagement
beginning tomorrow night,
under tho management of Knaw & Er
langer, and George Tyler. .
As a comedy. "Pollyanna" strikes a
new and vclcomc note In the "spoken
drama" and has aroused the same cn-
thuslasm that it did between book.
Catherine Chlsholm dishing, the dram
atist, has written popular comedUs
tor May Irwin, Henrietta Crosman, and
BUlie Burke; alio also wrote "Kitty,
MacKay. ' in bringing "Pollyanna"
ivlthln stage limitations she has been
credited with pieservlng the humanity
and joyous optimism of Eleunor 11.
Porter's enormously popular stories,
"Pollyanna," tho Glad Book, and "Pol
lyanna Grown Up."
"Pollyanna" hu.i proved a keen delight
to theatergoers and comes hern with
the original cast ot distinguished plny
ers Including Patricia Colltngo, ns tho
Glad Girl; Eftle Shannon and Herbert
Kelcey as Aunt Polly and Dr. Chilton;
Arthur Forrest, at. the hermit Pendle
ton; JcsHie Buulcy, as the amlablo
Nancy; Maude Granger. Helen Weath
ersby and Maud. Hosford. as the "Ladles
Alders;" Master Bobby Tobln nnd Lorin
Baker, respectively, as Jimmy Bean at
different ages.
Thero Is no moro lovable and fascinat
ing figure In modern drama than tho
joyous girl vho comes into a crabbed
community to sweeten everybody by
playing tho glad game, nnd whose ca
reer In the comedy extends from the
checked-glrigham period to radiant
maidenhood of BWcct seventeen In chlf
