Brady pro duction. and this production runs true to form. He soeks to bring his play to Broad way before bis rivals can bring "Tomor row's Price," said to bo built around the same theme. It may be recalled that last season there was n similar rush to forestall each other in producing mystery melodramas with tho result that Mr. Brady and Mr. Broadhurst ran almost a dead heat in “At 9:45” and "The Crimson Alibi.” “Tho Crimson Alibi,” It may be re- 1 cniled, was adapted from the mystery story of Roy Octavus Cohen. This same gentleman introduced through the kindness of Mr. Broadhurst, another play last week in "Come Seven.” The present offering is an original con., edy built from one of the author’s stor les in that Philadelphia publication which still carries the face and features of the Into Benjamin Franklin at Us innst head. The stage characters are all of African race, not a white face character appear ing during the entire performance. This is not exactly original, but It Is Interesting and should prove far more amusing than It did. The fault was largely with the casr. There are many "stage negroes” In ex istence, but few ring true, Luclie Laverae, happily cast in “Corns Seven.” U one of them. Arthur Aylesworth as a shiftless hus band, was unctuous, and Charles W. Vcyer gave a clever creation, but there after the credit left for distribution goes to Mr. Broadhurst, for his part in mak ing tho production, and Lilliam Trimb,* Bradley for her intelligence In staging it. Gall Kane, the best known name in th cast, was the greatest offender. The Hues were amu-dng. and Mr. Cohen brought his well developed and keenly analytical pen into play and made many of th** scenes interesting if the story did not hold together well. It was a simple and Ingratiating effort, and while It will win distinction for no one, it will afford a pleasant entertain ment for hot summer nights, and there promises to be many such.
