In "Her Son" the theatre-going pub lic is offered a play of intense interest, full of original and gripping situations interwoven with many refreshing lines of rich humor. Careful attention has been given to the elaborate scenic production, the same as was accorded the play on its initial production at advanced prices. COMING TO THE CRES9ENT. "Brewster's Millions," a dramatiza tion of George Barr McCutcheon's en tertaining story, will be the attraction at the Crescent, beginning April 2nd. Carl Gerard will be seen in the title character of Brewster. The excellent cast is practically the original. Grace Nile will be seen as "Peggy" Gray and the remaining long list of characters will be played respectively by Louise Sanford, Nestor Lennon, Jane Wal lace, Gertrude Shanley, Marguerite Slavin, Howard L.

The career of this remarkable wom an has never been equalled in dramat ic history. For over forty years she has yielded the dramatic scepter in her own country and has also been a world actress, carrying her art and language to every clime. So great is the perfection of her art, that foreign ers can listen spellbound to the music of her voice, though not understanding a single word of French. But what makes her productions so distinctly successful, is the fact that unlike many stars she surrounds herself with a company of brilliant and finished art ists who carry out to perfection every detail of the smaller parts. A striking feature of her engage ment at the Tulane TheAtre will be her opening performance on Sunday night of "La Samaritaine," by Edmond Rostand, an impressive biblical play SARAH BERNHARDT. giving in a reverential spirit an inci dent in the life of Christ. When in Paris, Mme. Bernhardt always pre sents it during Holy Week. At other times of the year she has given it in almost every country of Europe. On Monday night at the Tulane she will give "L'Aiglon," by Edmond Ros p tand, in which she depicts the pathetic f figure of the young Duke of Reichstadt, r who, the son of Napoleon I, is living at s the Austrian court, virtually a prison er. Last summer Mme. Bernhardt gave one act of "L'Aiglon" at the Lon L don Coliseum. She played each night to seven thousand people. They could not undarstand her speech, but pitied the youth so marvelously portrayed by a woman no longer young. On Tuesday night we shall see in u "Camille," by Dumas Fils, the pathetic Sfigure of Marguerite Gautier, not of t fesh and blood only, but of heart-a e woman flashing nobler impuses and Sexhibiting an earnest desire to lead a Sbetter life. As in the present and in the pist, so in the years to come "Ca mille" must be identified with the personality of Bernhardt. The performance on Wednesday af ternoon of "Madame X," by Alexander Bisson, will be welcomed by the many who would see the great tragedian in that melodrama of mother love, so noted for its trial scene and its por trayal of a wrecked life. While the play was produced in France by Jane Hading and in America by Ruth Don nelly, it was given first by Mine. Bern hardt during her present tour. The "Jeanne d'Arc" which Mine. Bernhardt is to give on Wednesday night, was first produced by her in November. 1909, and should not be confounded with the "Jeanne d'Arc" by Jules Barbier, presented by her in 1889. The complete title of the new play is "Le Proces de Jeanne d'Arc," a very quaint and impressive work, bas ed upon records of Jeanne's trial. Emile Mloreau, the author, has made every effort to be historically accurate, giving in this production the exact words obtained from historical arch ives as spoken by the Maid of Orleans, during her trial. Her repertoire for the rest of the week will be as follows: Thursday night, "La Tosca;" Friday night, "La Sorciere;" Saturday afternoon, "Ca mille;" Saturday night, "Madame X.'" NEXT WEEK-THREE TWINS. Following the engagepent of Mad ame Bernhardt at the Tulane, the fam ous musical comedy fantasy, "The Three Twins," will return to the fash ionable playhouse for an engagement. This big gir:y musical show made such a tremendous impression on the play going public of New Orleans during its first visit last season that the man agement was forced to return the play twice in one season. Practically the same company will again be seen, feat uring Bessie Clifford as "The Yams Yams" girl, and Victor Morley as "Third Twin."
