JESSIE BUSLEY. BEATRICE MORGAN. MARGARET GORDON.
A bevy of beautiful Thespians who begin the season in new productions,
in the dramatic news, as the season advances.
Their names will appear frequently
NEW YORK. Sept. 6. The theatrical
season opens with an easy and
natural swing in New York, and the
building of new theatres presages a
happy result to our enterprising managers.
The Broadway season opened at the
Garrick theatre with "The New
Clown." a three-act farce by H. M.
Paull. It is one of Charles Frohman's
new importations from London, where
it had a long and successful run at
Terry's and the Comedy theatre. This
bright farce was very favorably re
ceived by a large audience. The hero
is a young nobleman who adopts the
role of a clown in order to escape the
police, who are trying to arrest him
for the supposed drowning of a friend.
There Is plenty of fun and good love
making In "The New Clown." Compli
cation are brought about by the in
fatuation of the hero for the equestri
enne, at whom the strong man of the
sawdust folks has already set his cap.
The leading parts are cleverly played
by Jameson Lee Finney and Jennie
Busley. assisted by Julius Witmark,
Margaret Gordon, Beatrice Morgan and
an excellent cast, generally.
The Broadway theatre opened auspi
ciously with "Sally in our Alley" under
the Lederer management. This pretty
little comedy Is In two acts, with a
number of scenes. The first shows the
ariffbutl Sally's Alley. Another per-
trays the Interior of an east-side dry
goods store, a third showing the inte
rior of a fashionable Fifth avenue
mansion. The play is handsomely
staged, there being considerably over
one hundred people in the cast, includ
ing some prominent actors and
actresses, notable Marie Cahlll, Julius
Steger, Ray Gllmore and others.
"Soldiers of Fortune"' opened at the
Savoy theatre under the management
of E E Harris and assistant James
Forbes. It has been considerably
strengthened and bettered since last
season, new scenic effects being used
and the cast much improved. Pretty
Dorothy Tennant has a leading role,
with Robert Edeson, of course, in the
Brandon Tynan's new play "Robert
Emmet," has made a hit at the Four
teenth Street theatre, where it will
probably have a long run. The scenes
are laid In Ireland in the days of 1803
when English treachery was the chief
subject of Irish thought. Mr. Tynan
has agreeably mingled humor and
pathos in his melodrama and himself
takes the role of "Robert Emmet"
Manager Rosenquest has given the
play a very handsome staging.
Mrs. Patrick Campbell expects to
open on the 15th, at the Garden theatre
in a new play, to be followed with a
dramatization of Edith Wharton's
translation of "Es Hebe dos Leben."
She will then start on a tour of the
United States, returning to give her
entire repertoire at some prominent
New York theatre.
Viola Allen is making great prepara
tions for her appearance in Hall
Calne's new play "The Eternal City"
which opens at the Victoria, early in
September. Miss Allen will have the
part of Donna Roma Volonna, and
her brother, Chas. W. Allen, will be
acting manager, under Liebler & Co.,
of "The Eternal City."
This play is considered the most im
portant production ever made by Lieb
ler & Co., the smallest details of the re
production having been carefully
worked out by Manager George Tyler,
who has been abroad for that purpose
and to look out for good things for
the present season.
W. H. Crane opens the Criterion
Sept. 3, under Charles Frohman's man
agement, in "David Harum;" and will
then play In this success across the
continent from Portland, Me., to Port
E. E. Rice's "Show Girl" Is repeat
ing its Broadway success at the Grand
opera house where it is having a most
successful run, this theatre having
been thoroughly overhauled to make
room for a big production of it. Prom
inent among the beauties in the cast
is Miss Fenton Stewart, whose "picture
accompanies this article.
Klaw & Erlanger's new theatre will
open with the new Drury Lane specta
cle "Blue Beard," which will overtop
even "Ben Hun"
The Rogers Brothers In Harvard are
at the Knickerbocker under the same
The Greenwall stock company opens
the season at the American with "The
Christian," and Lillian Bayer has a
strong part in the cast.
This will be followed by a very clever
selection of first class productions
which will be used in their various
houses throughout the country.
The Empire opens with John Drew's
play "The Mummy and Humming
Bird." There is an odd character in
this novelty, an old Italian organ
grinder who has come to London to
slay the man who stole his wife. John
Drew appears as the scientist who is
the chief figure in the play and engages
the old Italian as his valet. In this
capacity the old man prevents the
elopement of the scientist's wife with
the very man who had dishonored his
