NEW YORK, Oct. 1L The theatrical
season, now in full swing here. Is
dally bringing to light those now elab
orate efforts of our managers upon
whose success their hopes, at least,
largely depend.
One of the most important of these
is the reappearance of Virginia Harned
as a star, under Charles Frohman's
management. In Plnero's latest play,
"Iris." at the Criterion. "Iris" Is
more in the class with "The Second
Mrs. Tanqueray" and "The Notorious
Mrs. Ebbsmlth." and consists of a pow
erful treatment of a strong subject.
Plnero illustrates in "Mrs. Tanqueray"
a fallen woman's endeavor to re-establish
herself socially among- respect
able people. In "Iris" the same type
of woman is allowed to fall, not
through inherent badness, but through
sheer weakness of character. It Is use
less to say that plays of this class,
when Interpreted so delicately as they
are by Miss Harned, from the clever
the Maubrun household, where a crisis
has been reached. The husband,
Edouard, is a capital fellow, Jovial, but
most susceptible, his heart being im
pressionable to any pretty woman's
smile. His fleeting affections and his
frequent infidelity exhaust the patience
of his wife Henrlette and she declares
that she will have a divorce. Mon
sieur and Madame Joulln, father and
mother of the wife, entreat her to re
consider. Especially does the mother
disapprove, not only because she looks
upon divorce as an unnatural inven
tion, but she likes Edouard. The moth
er reasons with the wife, thusly, "You
have all you qan possibly desire," she
says to her daughter and with the ex
ception of peccadillos he renders you
perfectly happy. Shut your eyes, then,
and seem as if you knew nothing,
therein lies the felicity of matrimonial
felicity. There are two schools (Deux
Echoes), that of the open eyes and that
of the closed eyes the latter is the
good one.
But Henriette has decided upon a di
vorce und Jouline's attempts to smooth
matters over are futile.
The amours of father-in-law and
son-in-law then become mixed and fin
ally the exacting Henrlette herself falls
a victim to the tempting Cupid's wiles.
Finally Edouard and Henriette are
of the greatest successes that the
Fourteenth Street theatre has ever pre
sented. Miss Alice Fisher in "Mrs. Jack" and
Slgnor Creatore and his sixty musi
cians are the combined attraction se
cured by Mr. Oscar Hammerstein for
a season of four weeks at the Victoria
theatre commencing Monday, October
This unusual arrangement has re
sulted from, the popular success scored
by Miss Fisher and from the conse
quent desire of her 'manager, Mr.
Henry D. Harris, to prolong her New
York season. Previous contracts pre
vented a continuation of the Tun of
"Mrs. Jack" at Wallack's theatre. Mr.
Harris then began negotiations with
Mr. Hammerstein for time, at the Vic
toria theatre.
During the engagement at rHammer
steln's "Mrs. Jack" Is presented pre
cisely as it was at Wallack's and- Miss
Fisher continues adding to her metro
politan reputation.
At the Knickerbocker "The Rogers
Brothers in Harvard," has proved a
strikingly popular hit by virtue of the
beauty of the scenery and costumes
and the unusual daintiness and spirit
of the chorus. The artistic nonsense
and horseplay of the Rogers Brothers
pleases so many good Judges of amuse-

Another new production, of which
much is expected, opened at Daly's
theatre under the management of
Daniel Frohman. It has been a great
success In London and an exceptional
record is expected here. "A Country
Girl" is a musical comedy iade on
the same lines as "The Geisha" "and
"San Toy" and Is one of the most Un
ified pieces of dramatic workmanship
ever brought to New York. There are
two acts, the first being laid in Dev
onshire and the second la London. The
cast is an exceptionally large one.

delicately handled that one almost
imagines the lovemaklng sans reproche
and the actualities of the plot merely
"Captain Molly," has been succeeded
at the Manhattan theatre by Miss

new play.
At the Casino "A Chinese Honey
moon" continues an enduring success.
This delightful musical comedy, with
Its all star cast of principals, has
found such favor during the entire
summer that It has broken all Ca
sino records. There is not a word, ac
tion or suggestion of salaclousness in
It, yet there is such constant comedy
action that never for an instant does
the play drag.
At the Fourteenth Street theatre
Bryan Tynan's "Robert Emmet" con
tinues a strong attraction, his clever
drama and impersonation fitting so
clearly a point of history that it cuts
like ice. Presented under the auspices
of Mr. Rosenquest. it is proving one
ment in New York that there are
many turned away nightly.
"Robin Hood" at the Academy of
Music, under the auspices of the Bos
tonians. Is one of the most successful
revivals seen In New York In many
years. Four of the actors of the first
cast have their old parts Henry Clay
Barnabee, William H. MacDonald,
George B. Frothingham and Josephine
Bartlett; Grace Van Studeford is a
very attractive Maid Marian and
Harold Gordon has the part of Robin
Hood. Alan A. Dale is sung by Olive
C. Moore and Anabel by Sabery
Mrs. Patrick Campbell still contin
ues to delight large audiences at the
Garden theatre and is now rehearsing

Joy of Living." -
