Sunday evening, two days away,1
Anne Nichol's "Abie's Irish Rose"
opens at the Garrick theatre, Detroit,
booked to run at least until Septem-
ber. This comedy, the very literal
miracle of recent theatric years, flat-
ly defies reasonable excuse for its
success; but everywhere it can stay a
week in one-night stands, a month in
two-night stands, a summer where
other attractions are thankful for a
bare nine performances, and three
years in New York--all to capacity
In actual production, of course--as
in all legend-plays with the fabulous
runs of "Lightnin'," "'Thie First Year,"
or "East Is West"-"Abie's Irish
Rose" is ridiculously disappointing. Not
necessarily, you understand, because
one approaches with biased superior
air, but because, reason as you will,
it seems so trivial, such a vast ado
about nothing.
A Jewish boy marries an Irish girl;
there is the kosher hausfrau, enorm-
ous and a picture of Bert Savoy; the
pat stage-Irishman and the pat stage-
Jew. The two fathers finally meet in
the last act, violently abusing each
other until the question of the child
arises-the stork has been screaming
by between Act II and III. The one
promises to will the young couple his
fortune if the baby is a boy, the other
enters the same agreement if it is a
girl. The solution, obviously-you
has guessed it already-is reached
as the nurse brings in twins, a boy
and a girl. . .. And the house grows
sick with laughter.
There is your largest ferment in the
financial American theatre: offending
neither Jew nor Gentile, soft and
easy, the play fat women enjoy after
they have become forty and useless.

Organized labor is developing into
a tyranny in this country-a tyranny
which recognizes the rights neither of1
its fellow workers or of that indefin-
able portion of our population known
as the general public. That the Amer-
ican Federation of Labor has accom-
Wlished a great deal under wise lead-
ership is undoubted. But it is equally
certain that an organization that puts
itself above ,the law has become a
menace to the individual rights.of our

First of all there is little or no
dancing and much less jazz. Besides
this, the music is excellent. The play
is actually a comic opera rather than
a musical comedy. The plot is by no
means new and the humor is far from
racy and equally as far from the usual
Broadway brand. Nevertheless, it has
been one of the outstanding attrac-
tions: that "Abie's Irish Rose" and
"The Studeit Prince"' should thrive

proof of the enigmatic taste of the
theatrical public.
The chief cause of its becoming a
New York fixture is apparently the
male chorus "of 60 voices" which act-

stage direction is so subtly arranged 1
