PACKED HOUSE SEES
DOUBLE BILL PLAYED
Helen Bracht and Earl Fleish
man Star in “Pippa
Miss Beer Scores Hit as Teresa
in “The Cradle
The full house which witnessed the
presentation of the double bill at Guild
hall last evening gave evidence of their
approval by the warmth of thoi" re
petition. The audience was especially
d ‘ ighted with the artistic color .ffects
achieved by Dr. Bates in the production
of “Pippa Passes.” Never before has
so much use been made of Guild hall’s
exceptional facilities for lighting. From
the shrub-house with its “blood-red beam
through the shutter’s chink” to the bril
liant contrast of flaming reds and blues

Dr. Bates is to be congratulated on his
choice of cast. Helen Bracht as Pippa
was a real Italian, with her thick black
hair, long pensive face and mobile mouth.
Her voice wag especially fine, rising clear
and round on every climax and holding
the audience by its sheer beauty.
The honors of “Pippa Passes” were
carried off, as was expected, by Earl
Fleischman as Sebald in the shrub-house
scene. Mr. Fleischman’s experience on
the professional stage has given him an
added power of utterance and consist
ency of interpretation. He was ably
seconded by Eyla Walker. Their scene
was by far the most effective of the
The student scene received the most
applause of the evening; although Mr.
Murphy’s enunciation was not always
clear, his infectious laugh kept the audi
ence in a convulsion. Russell Fox as
Schramm gained not a few laughs by his
solemn and religious reverence for his
much-handled corn pipe.
Although the part of Bluphocks is in
itself rather repulsive, Clayton Baldwin
made him a comedy character of the first
order. Mr. Baldwin’s fastidious walk
and clever facial expression upheld a
somewhat dull scene.
The turret scene missed fire but the
fault lies not with Miss Frater or Miss
Crosby but with Browning. A weak ser
ious scene after scenes of uproarious
comedy is bound to fall flat.
The costumes of Kathryn Hartley,
Helen Purington, and Hesther Hurd
were one of the joys of the production
and did much to give the piece an Ital
ian atmosphere. Miss Purington as the
second girl deserves especial mention for
making a small part stand out.
Bobert NcNary as the Steward is to
be praised for a bit of emotional acting
of high order. Charles Prim as the
Bishop had what is perhaps the most
difficult role in “Pippa” and proved
fully worthy of the director's faith in
Although from a literary and artistic
view-point “Pippa Passes” is a veritable
jewel, from a dramatic stand-point it is
sadly lacking. This will account for the
easy popularity of “The Cradle Song,”
that delicious bit of mother love. The
action of "The Cradle Song” was slower
than that of “Pippa,” but brilliant flash
es of individual acting compensated for
this difficulty. As Teresa, Martha Beer
did the best work she has ever done.
Passing easily from light joyous comedy
to serious emotion, Miss Beer was at
all times the center of interest. Smiling
and happy, confused but sparking with
life, she left a vivid impression of beau
tiful and girlish loveliness, as she bade
good-bye to her protectors and set forth
with her young husband for life out
side the convent walls. Miss Beer's
acting in this last scene drew many gen
uine tears from a sympathetic audience.
Krnest Watkins as the doctor furnish
ed a good deal of the humor of the
piece and also made a decided hit.
In the part of Marcela, Vivian Kellems
revealed comedy ability to no small de
gree. She kept the comic atmosphere so
continually before the audience that she
had but to smooth her veil or roll her
eyes sideways to send them into guffaws
Fauna Wootton's lovely voice showed
to advantage in Sister Juana's quiet
pathos. Rosamund Shaw got much out
of the insignificant part of Sister Inez,
and Harriet Plohemus’s giggle in the
character of the door-keeper will go
down in history. The Mother Superior,
Jeannette Calkins, handled a long part
creditably. If space permitted, each and
every character might be reviewed with
profit. On the whole, both perfor
j mances were exceedingly well done and
j set a high standard u r all productions
; to follow.
