Another New Play by' Wm. Gillette.
.Success of the Frohmans—En
gagements iu the Local Thoaires
During: the Past Woek — The
Baldwins to Open at the Opera
New York. October 17.1S96.—The pub
lic, to whom Miss Georgia Cayvan Las
long since endeared herself, gave her a
cordial welcome, when she appeared as
a "star" at Palmer’s theatre Iasi week,
in "Mary Pennington,” spinster, a new
comely by W. It. Wilkes. Miss Cay
van is well equipped by nature for high
emotional parts, possessing a very agree
able presence, thorough training, a de
lightful vo.ee, a clear correct enuncia
tion, and above all, her dignified and lady
like conduct nas always commanded re
spect. Her play is far beneath her abil
itif*-, being pi sy and transparent, and
1 fore half of the first act is over, the
cud is perfectly clear.
The best part of the piece fail* to Miss
Mary Jerrold, who loves an uneducated
youth, and endeavors to bring him up to 1
her standard of learning. Here, the dia
logue is really good, and the little actress
c i ch<t xactly th right spirit. Another
play is promised which may he more in
k*" ping with Miss Cayvan’s abilities.
After an interval or about twelve years
William Gillette has brought out another
Southern war play; * aught with thrill
ing situations and dramatic interest, but
nevertheless a cur.ou- distortion of na
ture, and uot pos- -'-ing ihe artistic fin
ish of iiis first production ‘‘Held My the
Enemy.” Happily in "Secret Service.”
the public is not bored with the same old
ideas concealed and-: ino her form and
ihe most striking situations are new;
consequently ii house is crowded at
every performance, and the piece cer
tainly is destin'd for a long run.
The hero is played In dill tte, and if
he could only throw off the hard, dry.
flippant styi. and nasal iwaug which he
acquit d in “Too .Much Johnson,” he
would appear to far greater advantage.
The climax which etuis tiie second act,
could not be surpassed and until the
