Last week revivals of three greatly successful plays opened in Manhattan:
Abraham Lincoln was written by John Drinkwater to interpret its hero for the English. Thousands of U. S. citizens saw it in Manhattan a decade ago, many went two and three times. Frank McGlynn still looks like Lincoln, makes him a compassionate and credible figure from his rustic days at law until the dark moment when John Wilkes Booth creeps toward the door of the red-plush Presidential box.
A Tailor-Made Man. Grant Mitchell returns as John Paul Bart, the socially-soaring pants-presser who. despite his outmoded slang (twelve years) is still very funny.
