One of the glowing exceptions to this rule is "Seven Days' Leave," the Walter Howard comedy, which is closing a two days' engagement at the Orpheum to-night. This play, which is still running at the Lyceum Theater, London, in which playhouse it has been offered for eighteen months and six months at the Park Theuter, New York City, is regarded by many discriminating critics us one of the pleasant surprises of a big theatrical season. A cast of all well known players has been assembled to interpret the piece, each one of whom was selected lor special qualifications for the part assigned. For once in the history of skating! on thin literary ice for the sake ot'j theatrical amusement, a quite | "The private theme Is handled with. Very so much art, so much pleas-I Idea" ant satire, so much c.ever- j ness, that only the human i side and the agreeable enlightenment I can be remembered, and no offense in the world is delivered nor are any i domestic sanctities raided or very seriously abused. "Tho Very Idea!" which comes to the Orpheum on Monday evening, is neither rough nor coarse, but it in vades the unspoken realms and tears seven veils without exciting anything but honest laughter and applause., Principally, this is due to the. tre mendously funny characterization of the chief roles. Likewise is credit for the unique miracle largely due to the a.uthor, William Le Baron. Given a sister and a brother-in-law of the kind who have no children and plans to. adopt one, \he eugenic Alan Camp bullies them into reading his book and frightens them about adopt ing an orphan without knowing its parentage. Into this situation comes the excruciatingly witty dialog, aris ing complications that keep the char acters of the farce in continually amusing and side-splitting uproar un til the final curtain. So contagious is the laughter that the audiences wher ever this .greatest of all farces has played have, without exception, voted it the best in many a day. F. Ray Comstoek, the producer of "Oh, Lady! Lady!" the fifth New Y'ork Princess Theater musical "Oh, comedy success, which will I.aily! be seen at the Orpheum Lady!" Theater for an engagement of two days, starting Tues day, was the tirst producer to per ceive the opportunity of improving the old style musical comedy, and there is no one entitled to more credit than he for giving the playgoing pub lic the refinement, cleverness, melody and gentility that distinguish the new, smart type of musical play which has become an institution throughout the entire theatrical world of this country. For four years F. Ray Corn stock and William Elliott have in- 1 augurated the Princess Theater, New York City, season with one. of their intimate musical comedies, their latest being "Oh, Lady! Lady!" acclaimed by the press and public of New York fur ahead of "Nobody Home," "Very Good, Eddie" and "Oh, Boy!" its predeces- I sors. The Comstock-Elliott Company feels that the public has taken so strongly to the smart, intimate type of Princess Theater musical plays, be cause it is tired cf the old type, rag time, plotless musical comedy which has become entirely passe. There is nothing old about the Princess Theater offerings. Their productions are the very best, their companies are composed of the high est-salaried players and the girls are youthful and pretty and each girl in the entire company is gowned in a costume to fit her personality and in dividuality. All of which has spelled success for the youngest and most successful pro ducer in the theatrical world. The vaudeville bill now showing at the Majestic is made up of a list of choice attractions such At the as "The Century Revue," a 'Majestic beautifully-staged and well presented singing and dancing offering; McDermott and Heagney, two men in a splendid sing ing and piano act; Holmes and Hol lister, presenting their pleasing lit tle comedy skit entitled, "Miss Kid der;" Ferns and Howell, clever black face comedians, and the Flying Kcel ers, in a sensational aerial offering. The sixth episode of "The Lure of the Circus" is also included on the pro gram. "Bobby" Heath and his Song Re vue will be the big attraction the early half of next week. Grouped around this attraction are: Fremont Benton and Company, presenting a comedy sketch entitled. "Handker chief Number Fifteen;" Cooper and Ricardo, young couple in a bright song and patter skit, and three other acts. Beginning Monday, February 10. the first episode of Pearl White in "The Lightning Raider," will be shown. Charming Constance Talmadge will be seen in her latest success, "Who Cares?." showing at the Co- At the lonial Theater to-day only. Coolninl A photoplay of gripping in terest to all who care or don't care. Monday and Tuesday, Tom Moore will be seen in a picture of love, romance and adventury, combin ed in gripping story in "Go West, Young Man." Maurice Tourneur's gripping melo drama picturizafion, "Sporting Life," is the attraction scheduled At the for Monday, Tuesday and Regent Wednesday at the Regent Theater. The same master hand that produced the colossal spec tacle, "The Whip." has made this stu penduous production. In it are shown glimpses of prize fights, actual scenes of the greatest of all races, the Eng lish Derby, and other scenes in the life of an English Earl. An all-star cast is in this marvellous picture. The story is a thrilling tale of ro mance and love. Tt is seldom the mo tion picture fan is privileged to wit ness so striking a tale of love as this, with the stupenduous scenes, the marvellous pictures of actual English sporting scenes and the phases of English life that will probably never be seen again since the mighty hand of war has erased all vestiges from the screen of life. A rip-roaring Sennett comedy. "The Village Chestnut." will also be shown It is a funny comedy tht will bring hack memories of the old davs in the little red schoolhouse and the pupils I who sat with us there. Roscoe ("Fatty") Arbuckle In "The Sheriff, and Charles Ray. In "String Bean*. two delightful comedies, are being shown to-day for the last times Both are very enjoyable.
