Cross Is presenting three or four plays this season that have scored all sorts of success. He has The Bishop" and "We Are King," the latter being the bill at the Star this week. The leading part Is play ed by Edmund Carroll, who support ed Walter Whiteside last season in this play and who makes quite as much of the dual part as did White side. The Raven, a mysterious man In black, Is played by Guy B. Kibbe, a Portland boy. "We Are King" Is one of the best and cleanest comedies seen In Port land for a long, long time and while having a suspiciously close resemb lance to "The Prisoner of Zenda," is yet different enough to save a charge of plagarlsm. A wandering newspaper correspondent Is found In the grounds of a tyrannical and des potic king of a small North German state, and a scheme Is hatched up to exchange places with the king by his premier and other members of the court. The correspondent en ters Into the conspiracy with great enthusiasm and until he gets the hang of being a king makes some of the most ludicrous mistakes imag Rglnuble. In the meantime the for mer king languishes In an asylum and as there Is a striking resem blance between the two men it Is not d'.flieult for the nrrh conspirators to Keep him there under the announce ment that he has un hallucination that he Is the king, which of cu-.iiso ho Is. The company is excellent, the stage settings adequate and in one scene elaborate and altogether "We Are King" Is put on and acted in a manner one expects at the high priced theatres. Probably, however, some of the midlence felt they were being cheated with only a single pistol shot during the whole performance. Oregiminn.
