Ezra Kendall, the well-known co

John Drew and his excellent com

three-night engagement at the Creigh

pearing in one of hia new comedy suc
cesses, "Christopher jr." it was in
this play that Mr. Drew appeared for
20 weeks at Charles Frohman's Empire
Theatre, New York, to crowded houses,
the balance of his seven months' season
there the longest any star has yet
played in the metropolis being given
to R. C. Carton's comedy of married
woman's foolishness, "The Squire of
Dames." With this comedy, in which
Mr. Drew made a triumph, he will fol
low "Christopher Jr.," the story of
which may be briefly given as follows:
Christopher Sr. is a hard-hearted
man of business, and he wants his son,
who bears the same name, to be the
same kind of a man, but the young fel
low has no taste for business and pur
sues a course that brings about the
father's dislike. Not only that, but
he gets himself into a bad scrape.
Going to Trinidad once on a time, by
mistake he went to sleep In the upper
berth of a stateroom. Hearing a snore,
which he does not recognize as his own,
he awakes and discovers that a lady is
in the lower berth. He rushes out of
the room, but the lady's father is on
board; he does not kill Christopher,
but marries him to the daughter under
impossible circumstances, such that
neither party sees the other, and
Christopher signs the name of a friend
of his to the certificate. The two
never meet till three years later, when,
under assumed names, they fall in love,
and through a series of amusing com
plications, reaching a comedy climax
in the last act, discover their condition
and are happy. Christopher Sr., who
has filled his son's life full of hardships
ail the while, is won over in time to
bless the young couple and provide
handsomely for them.
Mr. M. B. Curtiss' "Sam'l of Posen,"
the drummer up-to-date, who will be
seen at Boyd's Theatre for three days,
beginning with a cheap price matinee
on to-morrow (Sunday) afternoon at
2:30, is virtually a new play, for while
the title is the same, the New Drummer
has been brought strictly abreast of the
times. Since his last appearance here
the play has' gone through a radical
reconstruction, both as to plot, dialogue
and situation. It Is now said to be
brighter and funnier than before, and !
