Theatre: Best Plays in Manhattan: Dec. 26, 1927

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


MAX REINHARDT'S SEASON — The great German master lends alien magic to the Manhattan playbill.

CIVIC REPERTORY THEATRE—Eva Le Gallienne's group giving some of the best things in town at sharply reduced rates.

AN ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE—Henrik Ibsen's single entry in the season's lists thoughtfully prepared by Walter Hampden.

COQUETTE—A careless miss falls hopelessly in love with one she must not marry.

PORGY—Negro song and dance, sin and sunshine along the docks of Charleston.
