THE SHIFTING SCENES.
A Week of Varied Stage Offer ings in the St. Paul Theaters. Opera, Farce-Comedy and Sensational Drama All on the Boards. Second Sunday Night of the Theodore Bollraann Ger man Trouue, Sol Smith Russell, Roland Reed and Nellie McHenry Chicago Drift. Success, both financial and artistic, has crowned the efforts of St.Paul theater managers to cater to the needs of their patrons the past week. Sun day, Sept. 25, the German Theater com pany gave its first performance at the Metropolitan. '-My Leopold" was the bill, and it was presented to a large and critical audience in a way to make it well pleased and anxious for the next effort of the company. The Duff Opera company opened Monday evening on the same stage in "A Trip to Africa." The reputation of this pro duction drew a large attendance. While the opera itself lacks many of the "tak ing" features of others of its class, the Duff company made all that was possi ble out of it, and the audience appre ciated the faithfulness of their work. "A Trip to Africa" was given two pre sentations. The much-heralded "Cav alliera Rustieana" was disappointing in some degree, probably because of ex travagant praise in the past. The opera has genuine merit to commend it, and was rendered in really clever style, as was also the cantanta* "Trial by Jury." One of the very best farce-comedies of the period, "Gloriana," held the boards at the Metropolitan the last half of the week, and drew good houses. "Still Alarm." a drama with sensa tional features and an ordinary plot, has drawn large crowds to the Grand all week. Outside of the realistic pro duction on the stage of a fire" engine h ouse scene, with trained horses and a "real engine," Little Tuesday was the drawing feature of the company. At the Olympic Harry Montague's burlesque production, "High-Card Oh." on the familiar lines of "Midado," was given to reasonably good audiences all week. GERMAN'S AT THE MET. The Elegant Four-Act Comedy, '•Der Schwabenstreich," for This Evening. At the Metropolitan this Sunday Evening, Theodore 801 l man's German Theatrical company will give the sec and subscription performance, present ing the German comedy, "Der Schwab ■snstreich,or 728." The play is rich in im using incidents and will give the company an opportunity to snow St. Paul lovers of theatricals in their mother tongue their ability in this line. When "Die Milwaukier" were here last spring they created quite a stir among the Germans and before the engage ment closed a large number of Ameri cans could be seen among the audience. The company that is now playing an engagement of twenty-five Sunday Diehts in this city is made up of some of those who were here then and have added considerable new talent, making as strong an organization of Herman actors as can be found in the country. While there was a sprinkling of Americans among the audience last year, the opening night last Sunday showed a larger number than were pre sent at the close last season. This is certainly a compliment to the German actor as well as the German stage. The undertaking of Mr. liollman and his as sociates to provide pleasure for their countrymen throughout the Northwest is a very laudable though dillicult task, and should receive the support and ap preciation of all lovers of dramatic art regardless of nationality, aim it is to be hoped that in the near future such en- prise will be as fully rewarded by the support of the entire public as are Salvini or Bernhardt, who speak in a foreign tongue to an American au dience. The company plays a large cir cuit of towns, and will play twenty-five Sunday nights in St. Paul, closing the season about the first of June. Follow ing is the cast of characters for this evening: Fred Loerscb Mr. Schober Ilildegnrd Loerscb, his wife.. ..Mrs. Collmer Martha, her daughter Miss Berry Paul yon redding, her son-in-law • Mr. Schmelzer Hedwig yon redding, his wife. Miss Itoemer Conrad yon Scbwyburg Mr. Bullinann Dr. Aug VViukelberg ...'.Mr. Back Palraoin Taruburini Mr. Neilmauu A Messenger Mr. Wagner Minna, servant girl Miss Neumann Lobineyer, inspector Mr. Lieben THE NATURAL ACTOR. Sol Smith Russell in Character istic Productions. Sol Smith Russell is a firm believer in easy, natural ways, and his first aim is to establish friendly relations between himself and his audience, and five min utes after his appearance on the stage the audience seems to feel that they are iv his confidence. They never see him do anything in a stagy way, or never hear him speak in a stilted fashion, aim never see him offend against natural ness in art. He presents clean plays that make you laugh, with here and there a tear in it. Russell looks like a clergyman with his smoothly shaven, thoughtful face, but he probably does as much good as most ministers, since he brings smiles to nearly every face and sends the public away with all their kindly impulses aroused and a love for their fellows awakened in their hearts. Sol Smith Russell's creations of the characters of Noah Yale in "A Poor Relation" and Hosea Howe in "Peaceful Valley" stand on the same plane with Joseph Jefferson's "Rip van Winkle." He is an artist who has no imitator. Mr. Rus sell is supported by the best company this season that he has ever had. He will play a limited engagement of three nights and Wednesday matinee at the Metropolitan opera house, beginning to morrow evening, presenting "A Poor Relation" Monday night and Wednes day matinee, and "Peaceful Valley" Tuesday aim Wednesday evenings. This will be the only engagement that Mr. Russell will play in this city for the next two years. Seats and boxes are now selling at the box office. "LEND ME YOUR WIFE." Patrons of the Metropolitan to Hear Roland Reed. This popular comedian will begin an engagement at the Metropolitan next Thursday evening, limited to three nights and Saturday matinee. This be Mr. Reed's first appearance in sev eral seasons, and he will present the play with which he has been delighting large audiences in Boston and New York, "Lend Me Your Wile." The play is of French origin, but it is admirably adopted, and the humor is not only spontaneous, but American. Mr. Reed has a part exactly suited to the quaint, dry, droll of which he is a master — that of a Maine sea captain, with a pretty daughter and a handsome nephew, who are in love with each other. The young star, by a make-up that is singularly picturesque, not touching in any wav upou the grotesque, and a farcical ex pression that in itself tells part of the ■lory, manages to extract a great deal of HOW ISAVKD A FORTUNE. A '-Lady's Experience With a ♦-'"7. Drunken Husband. ... Mr. Editor: 7l- saw in your valuable paper last week what one of your sub scribers had to tell about a "Cure for Drunkenness." My experience is- dif ferent. 1 feel it: my duty: to the many wives and daughters "whose loved ones are troubled with this disease to say how happy I now am. - r My husband in herited a nice farm and $10,000 in cash from an uncle who lived in Michigan, and 1 thought we would be happy and comfortable for the rest of our lives, but my husband thought he did: not have to work any and took to drinking, and I was afraid that I would have the common lot of a drunkard's wife, so I sent to the ("olden Specific Company, Cincinnati, Ohio, S3 and got. a package of Dr. Haines', medicine and gave it to my husband in bis coffee every morning for breakfast. He did not know he was taking any medicine, and one day he said he did not think he would go around to Jim's saloon any more, that whisky did not taste good and be thought lie would quit drinking en tirely. That was two years ago. and 1 have never smelt whisky on his breath since. Any one can get the circulars by writing tlie above firm, or get the medicine for the Drice. If other people would do as I did" there would not be any drunkards' wives in this world. ' : <-': A Lady Reajikb. amusement for the audience out of the odd entanglements with which the play begins, and the complexing situations that lie manages to make all the more complex. Mr. Reed's company com prises Miss Isadore Bush, Miss Irene Everett, Miss Mary Myers, Miss Daisy Levering, Harry A. Smith. 11. Bees Davis, Sheridan Topper, Huliau Keed and James Douglass. FIiAVOU OF A CIRCUS. Nellie McHcnry's New Play a Dramatic Novelty. There is a strong flavor of peanuts, popcorn, red lemonade and sawdust all mixed up in the three acts of "A Night at the Circus," in which Nellie Mc ilenry opens tonight at the Grand for the present week. The play is out of the run of farce-comedies from the fact that it treats of an entirely different subject from any yet touched upon by the writers of larce-comedy-skirts, and so prolific has the subject proven that no one of the laugh ter-producing plays of its kind is said to equal it in hi:-* amount of up roarious hilarity c<-nii-.i.t--i in its three acts. That the, play ha:-.- woven a suc cess is owing, to a great •ne;*s::i-*. to the clever manner vi which the ueeiless comedienne, Nellie Mcilenry, has han dled the dual role of the circus rider and her twin sister, a most demuie gov erness. While the entire play deals with circus life, the last act shows the circus tent itself, and is a series of ab surd complications that are most con vulsing in tlieir conception. Of course, the central figure of interest is Nellie McHenry, but she is ably assisted by a most capable company "of comedians, and the entire production is said to be of tiie very highest order of farce comedy work. . JOHN DREW'S DEBUT As a Star a Success Dramatic Drift From Chicago. Special Correspondence of the Globe. Chicago, Sept. 30.— What a memora ble night it was! How the fans waved, the soft silks shimmered, the jewels of the ladies flashed, the perfume of the flowers filled the vast auditorium and expectancy was on every face as John Drew, who for ten years had been the leading man of Mr. Daly's company, made his premier bow as a star before an immense audience of fashionables at the Columbia theater last Monday even ing. Theater parties filled little sec tions of the auditorium everywhere, and one theater party called "Five and-Twenty Frogs" ended to greet the young comedian. Every one of this party carried a memento snecially de signed for the occasion in the shape of a book, the outside of which was cov ered with white kid, and- on the front was printed in gold the cast of **'k'he Masked Ball," the play in which Mr. Drew appeared. The inside of the book was filled with delicious bonbons. At the close of the last act the young actor was obliged to make a speech, in which lie thanked his many friends for their kindness in welcominghim in a more pre tentious position than he had ever held. The play is one of the best light come- ; dies that has been produced in many years. Amy Leslie, Tuesday morning, in speaking of the play, said: "It is an ingenious farce-comedy, which bubbles and ripples through three acts j with buoyant delicacy and billowy fun." :- During the entire past week the Co lumbia theater oflice has been the bead quarters for the three greatest managers in the theatrical business— Messrs. Al layman, Charles Frohman, and his brother, Daniel Frohman. Mr. Hayman believes that, notwithstanding the elec tion excitement, the present season will be one of the best in many years. Last Monday a committee of capitalists waited upon Charles Frohman to induce him to assume control of a new theater which they would build in Chicago for him. Daniel Fiohman's company will close its present successful engagement at llooley's Saturday night with a per formance of the "Grey Mare." The at traction at the Grand is Hoyt's "Tem perance Town." which will remain an- ' til Oct S. "Aii Baba," at the Chicago opera house, will shortly have finished its run of nearly two hundred consecu tive performances. One of the most remarkable places of amusement in the world as far as pros perity is concerned is the II ay market theater on the west side, It seems to make but very little difference what the caliber of the attraction is, the vast auditorium with a seating caoacitv of nearly twenty-five hundred is" usually filled at every performance. The week beginning Oct. 10 at Haymarket, a rather unusual event will oecur.^vhen James Corbett, who scientifically punched John L. Sullivan's facial feat ures until the last named actor had to resort to the. ropes and a black bottle for support, will make his appearance, as a star in his new play called "Gentleman Jack." It is understood that among the prominent, pugnacious performers who will appear on the histrionic boards this season are Corbett, Sullivan, Skellv, Dixon and Fitzsimmons. Truly, the stage is to receive a boost that will un doubtedly (?) delight the hearts of such players as Mr. Booth,- Mr. Jefferson, Manager Daly and others, who have been working in this direction during the greater part of their lives. Last evening the new Schiller theater was dedicated to poetry and song of "The Fatherland." In this place of amusement the worth of the art of Ger many will find enthusiastic recognition. In the symbolism of painting and sculpture in the decoration of the audi torium, Schiller, Shakespeare, Goethe and Homer are honored. On the drop curtain, Fame, portrayed as a female figure, crowns the busts of Schiller and Shakespeare; History, at Fame's feet, making record of the deeds of both. ; The new theater will be formally opened tomorrow evening. ! The attractions announced for next week at the principal theaters are: A. M. Palmer's Home Stock company, at the Columbia; William H. Crane, in j "The American Minister," at McYick i er's; a new comedy called "imagina ; tion," at llooley's; "A Temperance ! Town," at the Grand opera house; : "Aii Baba," at the Chicago ODera house, and "Old Jed Prouty" at the Hay market Great show town, this. . Chas. ASTOK PARKER. Somerby's Friend Denies. Baltimore, Oct. I.— Mr. Somerby was not at the office of the Iron Hall in this city today. Vice Supremo Justice A. U. Hosmer was shown the dispatch from Indianapolis and he said that the statement made by Smith that Somerby had drawn a check to pay the plaintiffs if they. would withdraw their suit was entirely false. ■ THE SAINT PAUL VATLY GLOBE: A SUNDAY MORNING.
