The Theatre: The New Season

By the first week in August the first ripples of a season's flood of plays will break on Broadway. Some 300 plays have been proposed for production between August and the following April. Of these perhaps 150 will reach the Manhattan boards.

Mrs. Fiske will take a company of Ibsen's Ghosts on tour. Particular attention will be given to University towns and educational institutions. The production may, but probably will not, come to Manhattan.

Ethel Barrymore will probably play a dramatization of John Erskine's The Private Life of Helen of Troy.
