because of the costumes, although the
amounts expended upon them are not so
groat aa the managers and the press agenta
would have us believe. It costs less to
put on a real comlo opera like "The Merry
Widow" or "Mademoiselle Modiste," In
which Frltxl Bcheff starred, or a straight
musical comedy like "The Ked Mill." than
It does to produce- one of the popular
Broadway muaical shows.
The production of such a show Is given
Into the handa of experts like Julian Mitch
ell, Ben Teal and Fred Latham, who spe
cialize in that kind" of work. Some ara en
gaged at a yearly salary In the neighbor
hood of tlO.OOO. Others get a lump sum of
from $1,5U0 to $3,000 for putting on a show.
Julian Mitchell usually tukra a percentage
of the profits. lie la regarded by the ma
jority, as the foremost stage director In
this country, so far as musical comedy Is
concerned. Usually he confines himseli to
general stage and chorus effects, leaving
the "business" of the principals to someone
One of the problems of the producer is to
arrange hia show so as to give the Chorus
time for changes of costume. In a built-up
show his chorus may change six or seven
times during the performance, and there
are seldom fewer than five changes. In a
comic opera there are usually only throe
ehanges. If the play Is modern, one of
these will be a walking dress that will av.
erage $75. which doesn't Include a J30 hat,
and about $7 worth of shoes, to say notn
tng of silk stockings. Then there arc two
handsomer gowns that range from J1S0 to
1356, the average being easily J'.'jo. Some
times a group of girls will wear toOO gowns.
Fur men as well as women the moat ex
pensive costumes worn In musical shows
are the modern ones. It costs more to put
a. man In evening clothes tnan In anything
else he ever wears on the stage. Tha av
erage Is about $123.
The minor principals usually have only
two changes, unless they buy dresses for
themselves, while the Btar Is likety to make
five or six changes, and her gowns average
about $400 each. Though tne bizarre cos
tumes don't coat so much as the others,
they mount up. There are the wigs, for
ono detail. They range from $10 to $15 for
the ordinary ones, up to $30 for tho pow
dered ones, und It is not unusual for a
group of girls to wear four different wig?"
In one production.
Many numbers are discarded afwr they
are all ready to go on ti.t etsge. For In
slsitre, "The Gay White Way," which was
practically a failure In New York, but a
great success elsewhere, was rehearsed for
three monthts. and numbers that cost more
than $1C',X0 to prepare were never even
tried In tho production as It was finally
given. Lee Shubert ordered ono set of cos
tume changes, simply because he doesn't
happen to like brown. His prejudice coat
