He soeks to bring his play to Broad

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

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
