"On the Bridge at Midnight,"
Klimt and Ga.zolo's famous
drama, for which the scenerj
alone cost $10,000 will soon be
seen here. "On the Bridge at
Midnight" is not a sensational
melodrama but a genuine comedy
drama. It is refreshingly free
trom the cut-arid-dried devices ol
ordinary plays arid its scenic and
mechanical effects aire unrivalled.
The reproduction of a famous
jackknife ; bridge in Chicago is
what gives the play its title and
the wonderful operation of, this
masterpiece of engineering is re
produced with thrilling accuracy.
The huge valves open and a
vessel passes through: Wit arid
humor follow each other through
the play like sunshine and shadow
on a showery day until the de
votion of a blind mother is finall
rewarded, and the part of Reddy,
the mischievous urchin and lost
child, is particularly mirth pro
voking. There are many other
interesting characters. At the
