evening, March 4, will be the chief
dramatic event of the season in this
city. There has not been since the
days when Edwin Booth and Lawrence
Barrett joined forces, such a union of
histrionic talent as these two players
represent. Mr. Sothern was long a
star of the first magnitude on his ac
count. So also was Miss Marlowe, and
each had a tremendous following

The management of the Tulane has

Miss Janis has always had a notable
popularity all over the country and
her first engagement here is looked
upon as a big social event of the year
at the fashionable playuouse. "The
Slim Princess," in which Miss Janis
will introduce herself in the guise of
a harem-skirted Turkish maiden, is a
musical comedy in three acts, the mak
ing of which enlisted the best efforts
of three of the cleverest men who de
vote their talents to stage production.
Henry Blossom, the author of "The Red
M.1ill" and Mille. Modiste," wrote the
libretto of "The Slim Princess" after
the ludicrous novelette by George Ade, ý
toe -.umorous philosopher. The musi
cal score was furnished by Leslie Stu

known work in America is "Florodora

so that all their disturbance is over,
but she gets her own heart strings tan

this fresh trouble, forms the culmina

comedy will be seen at the Tulane for

Crescent-Billy B. Van.
Billy B. Van, the comedian, who has
won popularity here before, opens a
week's engagement at the Crescent the
atre Sunday evening, March 10, in his
new musical comedy, "A Lucky Hoo
doo." Featured in the supporting c'st
are the vivacious Beaumont sisters.
"A Lucky Hoodoo" is a two-act mu
sical comedy with a good plot and bar
rels of fun. Mr. Van appears in the
first act as the property man of a vau
deville theatre and in the second as
office boy in the sanctum of a spiritu
alistic medium. He is given wide lati
tude in his fun-making.
The supporting company is reported
as excellent, including a large and well
costumed beauty chorus and the musi
cal numbers are pretty and catchy.

CREATORE COMING SUNDAY.
Those who have never heard Big.
Creatore and his band should not fail
to attend the concerts Sunday after
noon and evening at the French Opera
House, for they may never have the op
portunlty agaln to do so in this city.
It goes without saying that those who
have heard this organization in the'r
travels will be on hand to welcome the
noted conductor to this city. While
Big. Creatore sticks entirely to classi
cal music, he will not fail to give his
own composition of Southern melodies
which have bern praised so highly on
his Southern tour. The following quot

American, will exprqm an idea of the
work of this hand: "The wildest dem

when Creatore played 'The Star Span

were uncovered, and a cheer arose
equal to any ueard during the Spanish
