, A Cohan & Harris Show.
"Miss Ananias" Is a Cohan & Harris
at traction , which In itself Is enough
to tell people familiar with things the
atrical that It Is of first rank. This Is
the first "trust" show that has come
to Norfolk , being sent here by Klnw
& Krlimgor. Tills acquisition Is one
of the results of the settling of the
Hole's what Frank A. Marshall "in
the Kansas City Journal had to say
about tlio show a week ago Monday :
A most charming addition to the
nuMiiborshlp of the Ananias club was
made at the. Willis Wood last night
when Miss Adelaide Thurston , a par
ticularly offectho actress In dainty
comedy began a noteworthy week's en
gagement in Catherine Clilsholm Gush-
ing's very clover farce comedy , "Miss
Ananias. " Of course there Isn't any
thing moro Biblical than the name
about It , else it would have been call-
d , with strict regard for the laws of
gender , "Miss Sapphlra. " It might
much more appropriately bo called
" 'Such a Little Whopper , " for the
whole delightful affair hinges on ono
of the teeniest , whitest and most Jus-
tillable little libs that a pretty woman
over told. Her lover , temporarily
blind , thought she was 19 and had blue
eyes and golden hair , whereas she was
HI ! and had brown eyes and brown
hair. She let him think so until he
was about to recover Ills sight , for
"what could the poor girl do , " since
Hho loved him ?
The basic situation Is purely farci
cal and the chances for getting very
much real sentiment over the foot
lights from behind such a situation are
rather slender. While the tempo ol
the action might be quickened to ad
vantage and whllo the whole thing
would probably "go" better if the far
cical clement emphasized moro strong'
ly , there Is much to bo said in favor of
the quieter methods employed by Miss
Thurston and her unusually capable
support. In fact tlio company Is one
of the very best seen here this season
and every role Is admirably played ,
There is not a weak spot in the cast
nnd the acting alone Is a dramatic de
light. No cleaner or cleverer farce 01
comedy has been seen hero this year
The play is most cleverly constructed
and wittily written , its literary and
dramatic craftsmanship being of ; i
very high order. Acted so skillfully
as It Is. the piece is a gem in its way
Miss Thurston , one of the dainties )
little comediennes of the day , who has
n wide variety of artistic gifts , is do
lielously convincing as Nancy Lyle
the girl who had already passed Intc
splnstorhood when a handsome youiif :
fellow got thrown into her life by ai :
automobile accident which temporarilj
blinded him and made him a paticnl
in her cosy little home-hospital. Ilei
uprightly manner makes him conjure
up a picture of budding young woman
hood and she libs 1n order to preserve
tlio Illusion and her own chances ol
happiness. A frisky old uncle , f
breezy young cousin and a dellghtfu
old colored mammy help carry the do
ceptlon to the funniest of farce com
edy extremes until the inevitable do
noucmcnt comes , only to hring tin
"happiness which was aimed at fron
the llrst. A fussy old mint and a inos
laughable old maid sister add not t
little to the fun of the piece.
Augustus Phillips , an actor of ster
lii.H' merit , plays the blinded youiu
lover effectively. Marlon Kirby , wh <
played with distinction Helen Ware's
role in "Tho Third Degree , " and Is i
gifted young player , Is capital as tin
slangy \oung cousin , and Miss Lnur :
Bennett , ono'of the best "mammies' '
of the stage , is inimitable as Mamm ;
Chloe. Miss Kdna Von Buelow is ex
cellent as Mrs. Beokninn , and A. S
Byron Is clover ns Mr. Beekman. Con
stance Glover Is a screaming hit in ai
eccentric hit of character lasting nbou
three minutes. Francis X. IIopi
makes a very successful reporter am
' several other roles are well handled
