"ALL'S WELL THAT ENDS WELL."

"ALL'S WELL THAT ENDS WELL."

Shakespeare took the plot of "All's well that ends well" from one of zio Boccaccio's gross stories in the Decameron, and this may partly account for the rarity of its revival. We are told that it is seventy years since it was seen in a London theatre proper. In the Old Vic perfo

Lady Bancroft.

Lady Bancroft.

From "The World of the Theatre." By J. T. GREIN. It was just my luck that I arrived in London in 1885, when the Bancrofts officially ended their reign of glory and bade farewall to the World of the Theatre. To be candid, I had not come to these shores with high ideas of the stat

An Equitable Entertainment Tax.

An Equitable Entertainment Tax.

By MAURICE I. FRANK. The present entertainment tax is unjust to galleryites and pittites. It is unfair that the poor should be taxed proportionately more than the rich. A visitor to the "Old Vic " has to pay a tax of twopence on a sixpenny ticket. A playgoer able to afford a ten

The Grumbler.

The Grumbler.

Why should I, when I stand for an hour in the street, (For my fav'rite place is a gallery seat) Be forced to put up with the beggarly crew, Who torture my ears as I wait in the queue? There's the man who is suffering from bronchial troubles, And hoarsely informs me that he's blo

I Think: that the visit of the Old Vic to Brussels is of infinite value to the entente cordiale between heroic little Belgium and Great Britain; also that Leon M. Lion deserves his lion-share for daring to follow Shakespeare with "Count X " ; and that Vachell's play as played to

May 30th.

May 30th.

"4" is the first full-grown play by Lord Dunsany to be seen on the London stage. It has the imaginative qualities of his short plays plus a certain appeal to popularity, which results in a not altogether satisfactory mixture. The theme was probably suggested by Max Marcin's dram

To Courtice Pounds.

To Courtice Pounds.

(The end of the run of "Chu Chin Chow" is announced) Without thy " loaf " beneath the cactus bough, That pullet plump—that Flask of Wine—and thou, Oh Courtice, singing sweet refrains Then London will be wilderness enow. The Queue. ( T he L.C.C. is considering the abolition of th

A Visit to the Dress Circle.

A Visit to the Dress Circle.

BY FRANK FREE For our sins, sententious and otherwise, we were once allowed to pay a visit to the Dress Circle. A friend who disapproves of everything we have ever said about the theatre invited us to occupy a companion seat to his own on the occasion of a farcical first night.

"THE RACE WITH THE SHADOW."

"THE RACE WITH THE SHADOW."

In "The Race with the Shadow" Franklin Dyall, George Relph and Helen Haye juggle dexterously with psychic absurdities from the German of Wilhelm von Scholz. It is particularly magnanimous on the part of Relph to apply his art so sincerely to this material after the treatment acc
