As Seen atrMinneapolis. The Min
neapolis News commenting on "The
Girl Question," which is to be at the
Illinois, March 15. says: "The average
theatergoer uses four words in de
scribing a production. To him a 'show'
is either 'punk,' 'fair, 'good' or 'a
peach. The two words heard after the
first performance of 'The Girl Ques
tion' Thursday night were 'good' and
'a peach." If you understand Ihese
terms as used by the gallery gods you
get an accurate idea of the worth of
the production. It is the cleanest,
brightest, liveliest comic opera that
has been here lor many moons. An
energetic and painstaking management
has smoothed the rough places down
and infused such life into the piece
that you are sorry the show doesn't
last all night. The opera has an un
usual and refreshing 'plot.' A head
waiter and a pood looking waitress
have been chums since childhood. The
head waiter falls in love with a pretty
cashier of the restaurant where he
works, or rathe.- he thinks he falls in
love with her. On the eve of their
marriage, tho crshier. who happens to
ue sometning ot a lint, throws nun
over. The plot ends with the head
waiter finding that he has always been
in love with nis boyhood chum, tho
waitress. The audience applauds vo
ciferously when the 'chums' kiss each
other in the last act. It is a simple
plot. Its idea is that a true and last
ing affection is based primarily on
friendship. It gives the piece a wliole
someness, a strength that grips the
ai'dience tight, and makes it enjoy the
lighter parts much more than otherwise.
The chief characters in the production
are generous, good looking, good na
ttired people, whom you feel as if you
would like to know intimately and see
often. On this firm foundation the
producers of 'The Girl Question have
built a clever lot of chorus 'stunts.'
and introduced mr.ny delightful songs.
The cast shows careful t raining and
painstaking rehearsal. Everyone dot's
his best, and when that happens the
audience cannot help but appreciate
