Is no doubt there la greater Inter
est In Shakespeare's plays in the
United States than erer before.
T do not base this opinion en
tirely upon my own experience.
The splendid reception given Mr.
Sothern and Miss Marlowe
throughoutjtbe country over a long
period of .years,' Mr. Mantell's
consistent success fora third of a
century, and, more latterly, John
Barrymore's record , in 'Hamlet'
And Jane Cowl's - In 'Romeo and
Juliet are proof enough of the ap
peal and vitality of the greatest
dramas in the English language.
"Edwin Booth never played to
such large receipts as have been
common with those whom I have
' mentioned. In fact, Shakespear
' eaa productions, today could not
survice on the largest amount that
Mr. Booth ever grossed ..weekly.
The productions now are so much

the star as in the old days.. -
"There always will be a larger
publie for .Follies, Vanities, and

sons Interested In serious drama
Is growing year by year so that
even now, when the cost of pro
ducing and' touring la . double
what it was 25 years ago, there Is
. no difficulty In presenting the
classics at a reasonable profit.
The actor pointed to "Cyrano de
Bergerac" as an illustration of the
public's attitude. This classic has
been a successful financially -as
ltifwere a -good musical comedy.
'If -it had been. written by
Shakespeare, perhaps it would not
