OOAGIONAL gleams of light,
suc h as the coming of Wari '
field, break through to Dhow
us that all is not darkness,
and that we may got get back
Into a "seut In the sun" so far
as the good things at the theater are
concerned. In the meantime, the Boyd
Theater Tlayera go alon. filling a
gap that would otherwlne be serious, pro
viding a very high grade of histrionic en
tertainment at a very moderate price. No
mora capable organisation thnn that now
domiciled at the Boyd ever played to
K"ther as a slock company In Omaha, and
the plays presented are all worthily
mounted, eq that the productions are uni
formly good. The Orrheum Is providing
the high spots tills aeacon, and Is reaping
the golden reward that comes with enter
prise, tha rula dow'n there being a "sell
ouf fourteen times a week. Over at the
Oayety Brother Johnson Is bowling mer
rily along, with his burlesque shows
drawing like a poor man's plaster, and
making new friends for that form of en
tertainment every day. Johnson's policy
Is endorsed by ths big men of burlesque,
nd they' are working closer and closer
to his ilsn eveiy day. He goes each
week to Kansas City, to see the show be
fore It cornea to Omaha, and checks
everything he has reason to think might
not sound well In his theater. The result
Is ha feels onf Ident when ba recommends
the show to Ms clientele as clean, and he
has thus succeeded In building up a fol
lowing for the. brand of burlesque he sets
forth that would please any magnate.

Oertrude Hoffman, who comes to the
Oipheum this week, la best known
on account of her dancing. There
is the recollection, of 'course, of
"Salome." of her Russian ballet. and
new, the . greatest achievement of her
career, her new revue. Yet long before
she achieved world renown as a dancer
this little California girl had made a
name for herself first as' a real, honest
togoodnest manager, and afterward as a
mlmle. Huge manager? Tea. Indeed.
And aha Is considered one of the best, and
has the distinction of being the ' first
woman In -America to win laurels In this
When tha theatergoing public auddenly
discovered Elsie Jania, and later went
wild over tha "Domino Iouge." probably
It never gave a thought to Gertrude Hoff
man; and yet It was this girl, bubbling
over with enterprise and originality, who
had produced these two tremendous hits,
sad It was largely her Ideas and manner
Of carrying them out which brought such !
extraordinary success. . h also staged
Maria Cahlll's '"Moonshine," and tha bell
number and skating scene In. "A Parisian
Model", must be set down to her credit
And yet It was by accident that Miss
Hoffman as a dancer and star was "dis
covered." She was with "A Tarlslan
Model," of which her husband was the
author,' when the premier danseuse was
taken suddenly ill during the run at
Philadelphia. Miss Hoffman, after some
coaxing, and without preparation, stepped
Into the breach.. Her success was In
stantaneous. New York engagements
followed, and the Girl of , the Golden
"tt'i-st weke up to find herself a star of
tha flrit magnitude.
