Six Royal I-Jussar Girls at IeTtH ,i Tusay, Fiida Saturday, Feb. 18, 19 and 20.

Guy Bates Post will play his muchI
heralded engag-ement at the Whitneyl
theatre, Tuesday, March 2, in "Omar,
the Tentmaker," a spectacuilar Per-
sian romance by Rfichard Walton Tl-
y, based upon the life, 1 incs and
l ubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, the Per-
sian "poet and mystic of the eleventh
century. This attraction was the
dramatic sensation of the past theatri-
cal season in New York and comes to
the Whitney theatre with the original
superb cast of 100, and all the elabor-
ate scenic achievements that has made
the presentation so distinctive.
In the title role, Mr. Post, has by
his marvellously,. subtle and comn-
manding performance, firmly en-
trenched himself as the most eminent
dramatic artist upon the English stage.
Not since the passing of the late
Richard Mansfield, has our stage seen
s0 splendid an example of romantic
characterization. Mr. Post's inter-
pretation of the merry-souled Persian
poet bids fair to occupy a most can~
spicuous niche in our national gal-
lery of notable. histrionic achieve-
"Omar, the Tentmaker," is the third
triumphant success from the pen of
Richard Walton Tully within a space

Louise Gressler in "Omar, the Tentma, ken," at the Whitney theatre, Tuesday
night, March 2.

Many American electricians and's
senice artists have seen the set, at ac
special reception given by Mr. Vogel,p
and all agree that there has ever beenp
anything in the line of scenic splendors
ever seen in this or any other country 1
to compare favorably with this mostD
wonderful and dazzling set.

of six years, his other two pictuesque
plays being, "The Bird of. Paradise,"
and "The Rose of the Rancho." Of
the three plays, "Omar, the- Tent-
maker" is far and away the most
elaborately staged and pictorially
beautiful. The lavish settings de-
signed by Mr. Tully and Wilfred Buck-
land, depicting roseboWered gardens
in old Persia, huddled streets and busy
bazaars in the ancient city of Nais-
hapur, and majestic palace halls, have
never been excelled upon the Amer-
ican stage. The story unfolded in
"Omar, the Tentmnaker" is of unflag-
ging interest.
