NEY7 YORK, June 3.—The Billy season which ushers in summer has arrived for the theater It reached its apex last week when ‘‘Salome” was tried at by a wiggly dancer and a cast which might have been better occupied. It was perhaps the most puerile play attempt that has been made this year. The uud'ence at tempted to find justification lor re maining by baiting the play and players, but they soon tired of this, and before the curtain fell most of the audience was walking up and down Broadway woudering how such things could be. "The Rotters.” another play piroduced last week, had been widely advertised. Harry Corson Clark, a eompietent come dian, secured the rights to this several years ego when he was In London Ho tried It without euccess in Chicago some year* ego and then took It to Australia. The sad part is when he came back from Anstra'ta he brought It with him. An Ut her play was “Abie’s Irish Rose." by Ann Nichols, who has done *ome cred itable work in the past. The present opus is pure and simple, and was put together evidently to appeal to those of the thea ter who demand little Lut laughter to satisfy them. There are laxghs In the comedy—the story of a Jew who mar ried an Irish lass against the wishes of Ms father and who is brought into much confusion thereby. It la a story that sounds much more plausible if tne theme is not adhered to too strictly. From time immemorial comedy writer* have brought the Jew* and the Irish Into conflict, and Miss Nlchol* has set anew high mark for this particular stage trick. Alfred \\ elsman Is the Solomon Levy and John Cope the Patrick Murphy. Rob ert Williams Is the Jewish son. and dainty Marie Carroll, the auburn-haired lass of Ireland, The acting was skillful and effective and the lines were hilarious, if not always delicate. Two special productions of I ight," at the Neighborhood, and “From Morn to Midnight,” at the Garrick, of fered by the Theater Guild—brought the week to a conclusion. The Actors’ Equity Association aroused considerable interest this week when they announced the establishment next year of a playe-re’ theater, a theater which Is to be run entirely by the actors. A lease has been signed for an important playhouse, and more than SIOO,OOO cap ita: subs-rlbed, and this should be am ple to make a fair test cf the plan which -as been tested in a smaller way by several organizat’ons daring the season. I’LAYERS’ ASSEMBLY LIVES THROUGH TEST. The Flayers’ Assembly, which was formed early in the season, was the only one of these organizations to come through. They presented “Montmartre” wrih Galina Kopernak and a brilliant supporting cast, and achieved a success cf more than c-ne hundred performances 1 More they inaugurated the career of "The Night Cali,” which was less success ful and popular. But they clearly esfab- Tifced themselves a* an organization with their feet cn the ground, and a determi nation to do the better plays in a highly intelligent manner. It is the purpose to continue the existence of this organiza tion next year. Helen Lowell is the president. Brandon Hurst the treasurer and, Frank Deane the secretary. The Comedy Company Is another new organization. Grace Griswold, the direc t- r, made one production, this being a re vival of “Billeted,” a charming comedy which has been seen here before. But it ha* never been seen under such favorable conditions 3s the preynt revival, which has Lois F.cltcn doing a bit of natural istic acting that is a rare treat. Selena Boyle, Kate Mayhew, Sally ■Williams. T.umsdon Ilare, Langdon Bruce. Harold and —ard and Mary Hughes also added ma terially to the effectiveness of this play. 'I he Belmont Theater Repertory Com pany Is still another organization which i* to function next year. A group of the most noted stage directors, playwrights, ar.d drama lovers au,i authorities are in ti rt-*:etL Richard G. Herndon is to be the executive director, and the first bul letin issued eluce the name of the spon sors were released bears the interesting news that the Harvard prize play for this year has been awarded this company. A now group of foreign actresses Is to be seen on the American stage next year, which will afford Interesting news and possibly rare additions to onr personnel. Moray Czrpen, a flashing young French actress, arrived last week, and she Is to be one of them. Avery Hcpweed, who returned sum* time since from a long tonr cf Europe, is about to pa.-lt h! Taylor trunk for * re turn to France and England. Mr. Hop weed I? one of the authors of “The Bat." and this plnv is bow as great a success in London ns it has long been in New York and Chicago.
