Tho play which com'-, to tho opera house
this evening will bo found worthy of its
audience. It is tho celebrated colonial
drama, "Tho Witch," and ii star Is that
slncoro and syrapathio actress, Miss Marie
Ilubort Frohman. Of tho production in
Now York City the World says : " 'The
"Witch' is a genuine drama. It is in five
acts and it doos not suggest either 'Uncle
Tom's Cabin' or 'Shonandoah,' a fact that
I rather surprising when It is remombored
that 'The Wilch' is American. Tho drama
deals most interostingly with old witchcra.t
days in Salom, Mass., and tells a really
pathetic love story with a wealth of pic
turesquo and apparently accurate coloring.
Tho subject of the play is one In which wo
have all felt tho pique of interest. It is ono
that puts us, moreover, upon very good
terms with ourselves, for it shows us that
with all our littlo pot superstitions onllght'
onment in two centuries has swept away a
thousand degrading beliefs with tho energy
of a cyclone."
