• COMING, "THE ROSE MAID."
Messrs. Werba and Lnescher, tb
Ic producers o New York' latest bi:

of their respective army. '"The Rose
Maid" was the best liked of all operas
in New York this summer and will be
presented at the Tulane the week of
October 6th, with the same elaborate
production and extravagant detail that
made it the vogue on Broadway during
the past summer.
"The Rose Maid" is one example of
the Viennese operetta without a prince
for its central feature. Ever since the
introduction of these imported musical
entertainments princes have played
the leading roles. A Viennese opera
without a prince as the hero is some
thing of a novelty, but "The Rose
Maid" not only has no prince but the
princess in the cast is not the heroine.
That honor is reserved for the pathetic
little rose girl who triumphs over all
the court ladies and carries off the
hero as her own sweetheart. 'Its ro
mance, its music and its gay scenes all
combined to make such a charming en
tertainment that it ran through the
entire summer on Broadway, establish
ing a new record for light opera in
Wagenhals and Kemper's company
in the Rinehart-Haopwood comedy,
"Seven Days," direct from the play's
third year in New YOrk and with the
Broadway production, will be at the
Crescent theatre all next week com
mencing Sunday night, September 29.
Those who like to laugh at the thea
tre, and who does not, will be repaid I
many times over by "Seven Days."
The Red Book Magazine said of this a
"It is one great plot of fun. It con
tains every element of uncommonly
good entertainment." It seems super
fluous to emphasize the good qualities
of "Seven Days" whose great success
and widespread fame must be known
to everybody. If anyone doesn't know
"Seven Days" is the biggest and best
laughter maker on the American stage
that person is a rare exception. This
comedy ran for two entire years in
New York and lately reached a third
year there. For six months it shook
Chicago with gay hysteria, and in long
runs in Boston and Philadelphia it
made these cities merrier than they
had ever been before or have been
since or are likely to be again. There
has never been anything approaching 1
it as a mirth producer and its delight
never ceases. The oftener it is seen
the funnier it is. It was written by
Mary Robert Rinehart and Avery Hep
good, who first of all created a capital
story. It is a real play and not the
hodge-podge of meaningless nonsense
of the general run of plays designed
to get a laugh. As the New York
Journal says: "The story is too funny
to be told and vastly funny to behold."
COMING TO THE CRESCENT.
iollowing '"even Days" at the Cres
cent theatre, a new and gripping
drama by Halleck Reid, autltpr of "Hu
man Herts," will be presented at that
playhouse. It bears the title of "The
Confession," and is considered one of
the strongest plays ever shown on the
stage. The keynote of the story points
out the sacredness of confessional
vows with the priests of the Catholic
religion. The story, however has lit
tle to do with religion, but is a strong
tale of heart nlaterest that is never lost
upon the audttor. "Th Confession"
Is said to be the only draata ever pro
duced which received an unquallled
edorsement from Cardinal OIbnse,

"Married Life," a comedy drama,
dealing with a real human interest
plot will be the attraction next week
at the Lyric theatre, where the Peru
chi-Gypzene Stock Company is meet
ing with much favor and attracting
large audiences, setting a record for
itself over previous years at the play
In telling the story the author intro
duces a newly married couple who are
the victims of another couple, that
seem to take special delight in caus
ing them discomfort. The pathetic
features are well drawn and the char
acters are everyday people.
But the comedy element which pre
dominates works out a denouement in
which the couple is shown its error in
a practical yet amusing manner. The
audience enjoys much hearty laughter
and the curtain falls on a very happy
home instead of a divided one.
This production is new to local the
atre-goers and it should appeal strong
ly to the patrons of the popular play
house. ft is a gripping, convincing
and plausable narrative and will be
presented in a finished manner by the

happiness is for the time being shat

Peruchi will likewise win new laurels
as the husband who also becomes es
tranged in the same time. He will
give the part a splendid portrayal.
Owen Coill and Dorothy Marke, two
other members of the company that
can always be depended upon for ex
cellent work, will be well cast as the
couple that "starts things." They will
do their usual high-class work.
