MUSIC AND DRAMA
"The Bachelor's Baby" Tomorrow
Few laughing plays have met with
the uniform success that has been ac-
corded to the popular comedian Fran-
cis Wilson and his comedy-farce, "The
Bachelor's Baby." "The Bachelor's
Baby," is a cleanly little play and an
essentially human one With lots of
sunshine and just a few tears. No
vexed problems are discussed but it Is
a simply told story of how a bachelor
who hated children is made to love:
them by a dainty ,little girl of whom
he has been made guardian by a de-
ceased brother. The same clever sup-
porting company as has been with
Mr. Wilson since the play's first pre-
sentation are in the main playing the
parts which they' created. That de-
lightful and charming infantile play-
er Baby Davis has the part of little
Martha and Miss Edna Bruns is the
leading lady. Charles Frohman pre-
sents Francis Wilson in "The Bache
or's Baby," at the New Whitney thea-
ter Monday, Xa'eh 25.
