".Much Ado About Nolhlna'' at the
Shakespeare's "Much Ado About Noth

players at tho Boyd latt evening.
They brought out tho comedy of every
scene In a skillful fashion, but spicy re
marks or laughable situations were never
overworked. This is one of the best
attributes of the Coburn playera-they do
not overdo or go to extremes, ineir
comedy brings home the real humor of a
situation and fully Interprets tne meaning.
Mr. Coburn played the title masculine
role of Benedick, a young gentleman ui
Padua, and brought forth considerable
applause, especially when he made,, the
sturtllng declaration in the final act that
for a man to cure himself of the tooth
ache ho should get married.
Mrs. Coburn, in the part of Beatrice,
the young woman who Is loved by Bene
dick, with her haughty demeanor and
flighty actions toward her lover, was ex
ceptionally amusing. Charles Fleming, as
Dogberry, tho head constable, furnished
some laughable situations, especially In
the prison scene. George Gaul carried a
heavy part as Claudlo, a young gentle
man of Padua.
