These are the plays which, in the light of metropolitan criticism, seem most important.


BRIDE OF THE LAMB — Alice Brady giving a burning interpretation of a relation between sex and religion in a shoddy but irresistibly exciting play.

YOUNG WOODLEY — English schoolboy life and the dawn of sex in a young man. Mainly Glenn Hunter.

CRAIG'S WIFE — The portrait of a lady who dusted her house so clean that her husband left it flat.

LULU BELLE — Lenore Ulric in a gutturally exciting portrait of a Negro courtesan who conquered Harlem and then Paris.
