Of coarse the reason for these pre
posterous early openings is not hard to
find, since it lies in the minds of the
Broadway managers, and said minds
are not as deep as a well nor as wide
as Lobster square. These Broadway
producers have their next season's pro
gram pretty well made up before the
close of the current season. They know

have set aside a certain amount of
money to pla on a fixed number of
combinations, they want to test their
luck as quick! as possible and get the
agony over with. If the play fails, and
is borne out the back door of the the

manager can clear the boards for the

has added a month or two to his sea

the year, the regular pla going public
of the city, or at least, the more de
scriminating portion of it, is easing its
way through the dog days at tne sea
shore or at cool (alleged) mountain re
treats. The manager, therefore, knows
that the public he invites in to pass
upon his new play, consists largely of
out of town folks who appreciate anv
effort to entertain them, and that
scramr colony of actors and actresses,
who for one reason and another, are
obliged to remain on or near Broad

in the first place and in the second 4
place they go to the theater as guests
of the manager. As the unwritten
code of the profession forbids adverse
comment on a play which was wit
nessed at the expense of its producer,
jou can readily see the advantage of
a July production. And then, as a
usual thing, the regular newspaper
critics are out of town and the press
reports are generally supplied by the
heroic press agent of the show con
cerned. The result of this is that be

they who make or unmake a Broad

Turning from these low spirited
thoughts, we wipe our perspiring brow
and pass on to the contemplation of a
pleasant topic that is now the chief di
version of the conversationalists along
the rialto This is nothing other than
a proposittcn to establish a permanent
home in New York for the exclusive
production of light opera. Such an in
stitution as the Gpietv and Daly's in
London and the Follies Bergere in
This is a eood idea. The wonder of
it is that it hasn't been done before.
The answer to that, doubtless, is that
theatrical productions in America are
more of an individual enterprise than
thev a'e hro-d especially in Eng
land. Knowing full well the great
monetary risks which attend every
production, it has come to pass in Lon
don that an individual producer Is a
thing unheard of Productions are .now
put out by s ndicates on the other side,
while this lessens the personal profits
cf those interested, it does, on the oth
er hand, lessen the inroads on the per
sonal bank account.
If such an enterprise as the London
Gaiety is launched here, and it looks
as if the launching will be good along
about December, it will not be the
usual individual affair. A number of
prominent Broadway producers will
have a hand in the pie And their
names are such as inspire confidence
that It will be a success.

"The American playwright has ar

There is an increasing demand, espe
cially in London, for our productions
and it looks as if New Tork in the near
future will be the great play market

Of course it was a very hot day. the
one on which Mr Shubert arrived from
London, and the spectacle of the God

might have had an undue influence on
the manager's conversation But Mr.
