Two»dollar Production for 30
Cents at the Newark Is
Truly Admirable.
Resounding Risibles Released by i
Rollicking Humor at All
the Playhouses.
T\VO-DOLLAR productions for SO
cents was the promise made to
us last weelt by our genial,
tunpy friend and player-producer, or
produeer-player, Corse Payton, Intro
ducing his stock company at the New
ark Theatre, and at the final drop of
the curtain last night we looked tor
that same triend to shake hands and
tell him of our entire respect for his
promises. Forahe performance was goo 1.
—"crisp aa a head of lettuce," to quote
Aunt Rosa of bibulous ubiquitousness,
and more than met the expectations of
a “ten-twent-thlrt" house.
Dgvid Belasco's adaptation of tho
French "Zaza" was the wagon to
which, in this case, Mr. Payton hitched
his stars, and, although gome of them
were in danger of falling off the tail
board as it Jolted over the "thank-you
marms" and rough spots, all clung
valiantly and alighted smiling at the
end of the Juorney. No wheels were
missing and as the week progresses
those aboard will contribute the lubri
cation needed.
Story Is Familiar.
A great many of us have seen
"Zaga" as enacted by Mrs. Leslie Car
ter, and the story is more or less fa
miliar. It is a sordid romance, that
of a Parisian music hall singer, un
moral because no one had explained to
her that she was immoral. A real love
for what she considered a real man
partially but not wholly awakens her.
and she ceases her flirtations with
others to devote herself wholly to him,
believing and trusting him absolutely.
Through friends she learns of his
wife, and in a storm of grief and rage
goes to see her, and finds a baby—a
dear little girl who adores her papa.
And she it is who, with her childish
logic, disarms Zaza for the moment.
But only for the time being, for on her
return to St. Etienne, where they had
been living, she is determined to hold
the man, if she can.
Her change betrayal of the fact that
she had visited his real home brought
upon her all tho abuse of which the
miserable, weak man was capable. He
goes to America and she back to the
stage, where she becomes famous, ab
. Juring the adulations of all men. And
when, in two years, he returns, beg
ging forgiveness and wanting to see
her. she shows her real strength In for
giving him, in sending him back to his
family and bidding him a farewell that
is te be Anal.
Mr. Payton is to be congratulated in
securing so capable an artist as MIsb
Blanche Hall to portray the wanton
5aza, and site displayed a grip ot the
nslght into her character and moods
hat must come of more than casual
Itudy of the part. She was at no time
it a loss for emotional expression, and
t was she who carried the piece.
A paragraph is all too short In which
0 give an appreciation of little Miss
"orinne, who enacted the role of the
jaby with the surety and aplomb of
mo old in stagecraft. She was delight
ful, front lier ‘‘bangs” to her chubby
tnees. and, as she herself said, "she
lid very well."
Miss Jessie McAllister climbed an
jther rung in the ladder of our esteem
jy her sincere acting, and Miss Layng
ns convincing as the jealous Florl
mno, ex-favorite.
The staging and costumes are worthy

_ A millionaire convict has always
been the object of pity, but last night
at Procetor’s In the sketch called "High
Life iri Jail" It was demonstrated that
"class” can be maintained even in
prison. The doings of wealthy crooks
In the "Sing Sing Apartments” were
so very funny that the average person
will no longer feel pity for the
moneyed convict. This sketch Is one
of the best and funniest as well as
the most original that has been seen
in the Park place playhouse in many
a day, and the audience showed its
appreciation voluminously and was
loath to part with the ‘‘exclusive” con
The next good number on the bill,
the one that seemed to please the
audience almost as much as did the
headliners, Is called "Dear Old Yas

Will Vidocn will live long and amuse
many people.
“Wild Rose,” played by Gertrude
Dean Forbes and company, though
seen here before, was, nevertheless,
well received. Raymond and Hess
were liberally applauded, and Charlie

songs. Fritz’s dogs were liked, and so

Under the management of Albert
Blum, a new policy of entertainment
was offered at Woldmann’s popular
playhouse for the summer. The well
known vaudeville performers under the

Hay Join Vaudeville, Lured
by Shining Gold from
Miss Pauline Cowman, who has Just
returned to her home at 352 Woodside

musical comedy “Katie Did." had the
unique experience of starting out last
July an one of a b'g chorus of forty

Toronto as one of the principals.
“My chance came In Chicago,” she
explained to an Evening STAR re
porter today, “j was an understudy,

National Theatre. Then I finished out
the season In a leading part. Now the

“Oh, I’ve only rot to sign the papers,
that's all," she laughed, “but I don’t
know that I will, after all. I’ve a
chance to get into vaudeville as an
Impersonator—all by myself, too—and
then, you know, It's the lure of the big
money. Two years ago I was with
Hattie Williams, one of Frohman’s
stars, in 'Fluffy Ruffles.’ She left
musical comedy for vaudeville. And
the leading toe dancer of 'Katie Did,’
Appetltie Adclade, has just sailed for
London to star In vaudeville. And I

“We came to Newark a little more
than three years ago and I went to
Franklin School for about six months.
Then, when I was 16, I started in a
vaudeville act at the Criterion Theatre,
New York, with six little girls back of
me. We played at Proctor's 125th
Street Theatre, too. Then I started to
travel In musical comedy—and Pull

think, because I've been In every queer
kind of a train tangle that can be
Imagined. When we were playing In
Phil delphia for three weeks a short
time ago our special was running one
night twenty minutes ahead of the

something and rolled us all from our
berths In a heap Into the middle of the
car. It was Just horrible!

“How did I start? Why, when we
were living In Liberty, a little town of
Sullivan county, New York, we used to
have home talent nights on the stage
where such old-timers as ’Uncle Tom's I
Cabin' and ’Ten Nights In n Barroom’
were played. I used to go around say
ing to everybody, 'Gee, I think It’s
about time for another “home talent, '

and dance. Then father and mother
