New Productions.
NEW "iORK. pt 16 If you can
imagine the essence of a reat
cirrus indoors, only much finer
and more artistic than any tented ex
hibition you haie eer seen, ou will
pet some idea of "The Bis Show,"' as
Charles Dillingham chooes to call his
latest -wonder at the Hippodrome.
Sensation follows sensation in be
wilderinj; manner, the possibilities of the
vast reaches of the preat playhouse are
realized magnificently, riots of color and.
gorgeous revelries of sound unite to
produce a spectacle which has perhaps
neer been equalled.
The three major episodes are a mon
ster minstrel show, a pageant on the
ice and the Anna Pavtowa ballet.
The minstrel show comprises 400
white and black singers, which certain
ly has never been touched in the his
tory of minstreley. Old and new sonjrs
are intermingled. Good quartets and
double quartets warble and strike those
barber shop chords vhkh find the way
to the heart.
Ice Ballet Is Swell.
The ice ballet is smarter and more
brilliant this season, with Charlotte and
the other old favorites present. Hilda
Ruckerts wins applause with her imper
sonation of a doll on skates. Miss Pope
and her partner, Mr. Kerner, an Ameri- j
to the foreign skaters.
The Pavlowa ballet is in four scenes
and is entitled "The Sleeping Beauty.''
The theme is taken from a fairy tale by
Charles Perrault. The lithe and nimble
Anna, has lost none of her ancient
charms and she has many clever though
less known male and female toe artists
to second her. The costuming and
scenic effects are delightful.
Elrphants at Baseball.
Two teams of elephants play a gro
tesque game of baseball, in which one
sees a perplexed pachydem pitcher am
ble down to home for a whispered con
ference with a stockv catcher, while the
batter looks on disdainfullv. Another
thrill is furnished bv a motion picture
plav ending with a piece of real drama
in which a man fights his way out of a
den of lionR.
A manelous effect is produced in two

Washington and another the crew and
officers at attention on a battleship.
This does not by anv means exhaust
the list of wonders, but it will give some
idea of the latest effort of the Dilling
ham genius.
"T'je Man Who Came Back."
Some strong situations are developed
in J. E. Goodman's stage version of
John F. Wilson's novel. "The Man Who
Came Back," which William A. Brady
produces at the "Plavhouse." Henry
Hull does splendid work as a voung rake
who sinks deep into the lowest cess
pools of human life and then pulls him
self to the top again with the help of
a woman, Marceile (Marv Nash I, who
also makes the ascent out of the depths.
Henrv Potter, a wastrel with nothing
essential! bad in his character, is sent
bv his rich father to make his way in
San Franu-i-o. Here he is seen six
months later, a drunken patron of a
cabaret, where Marceile is a singer. Al

The interest in the play is well sus
tained and the audience's sympathy for
the two main' characters is gained and
held. Mr. Hull is a rather boyish hero,
but he rises' well to the great demands
his part makes on him. Miss Xash por
trays her role in skilful fashion.
"The Girl from BranL"
Good, solid, noisy, melodious music pre
dominates m the lirl irom iJrazil, a
musical comedy in three acts at the
Forty-fourth Street theater. The book
is bv Edgar Smith and the Ivrics by
Matthew Woodward, while the music
was contributed by Robert Winterberg
and Sigmund Romberg. The original
version was by Julius Brammer and Al
fred GrunwakL Together these gentle
men have turned out a very acceptable
entertainment. The music, for the most
part, was extremely well interpreted.
Beth Lydy, who made so favorable an
impression in the recent Lew Fields
show, has the prima dona role. Miss
Lydy has a gorgeous voice and besides,
is extremelv pretty. John II. Goldswor
thy. who sang the tenor role, has a
round, full voice of pleasing quality.
Their duets were remarkably well done.
The storv is that of a millionaire who
has become insolvent and who has ar
ranged to marrv his beautiful sister to
the baron von Roedigan. reputed to be
"A Pair of Queens."
Fun is fast and furious and the plot is
simply bewildering in "A Pair of
Queens." a farce credited to three per
sons, Otto Hauerbach. A. Seymour Brown
and Harry Lewis, at the Longacre the
ater. It is one of those swift, light pieces
which no one can see without coming
near cracking a rib from mirth.
The piece contains plenty of crooks
and police, a jealous wife, a comic serv
ant and other commonplace ingredients,
but these are stirred together to make
a confection well worth setting before
toe dramatic public.
Honors Are Even.
The honors of the evening are divided
between Maude Eburne and Hugh Cam
eron. Miss Eburne will be remembered
as Coddles in "A Pair of Sixes,"' another
Frazee production. Mr. Cameron was a
comic cop in "A Full House," a third
farce for which we are indebted to Mr.
Frazee. He now takes the part of a
slow-witted detective.
Joseph Snntley plavg his part welL al
though it is a pity he has not more
chances to sing and dance. Kathleen
Clifford and Elise Scott should also be
mentioned. It is a gingerv performance,
which will disappoint nobody.

! verv wealthv.
Would Wed a Fortune.
The fact is the baron is penniless and
plans to marrv the girl to rehabilitate
his fortune. The arrival of the girl from
Bra7il bears the fact. She holds a claim
against the erstwhile millionaire and
comes to press it.
He undertakes to borrow the money
from the baron at a time when the
baron has just decided to solicit a loan
from him. Each learns of the other's
lack of funds. It develops, however, that
the baron's suppo-ed wealth was the only
one that stood in the way of his suc
cessful courtship of the girl he loved.
She preferred him without money.
Ends in Usual Happy Way.
The girl from Brazil conies to the res
cue by offering the baron a position as
superintendent of her ranch in Brazil,
and in the end everybody is happy for
the former millionaire himself goes to
Brazil, starts a ranch of his own and
marries "the girl from Brazil."
"The Girl from Brazil" has, in addi
tion to its good music, a large and at
traetivelv gowned chorus and some beau
titul scenery.
