A review, by Joseph Kruger.
The Theatre Guild of New York ad-
vertises George Bernard Shaw's
"Androcles And The Lion" as its pro-
duction at the Klaw theatre, and then
startles the audience by opening the
performance with Shaw's "The M\lan
Of Destiny," perhaps believing that
Shaw should be administered slowly.
And, strangely enough, the unadver-
tised "The Man Of Destiny" surpassedF
the better known comedy in actual
presentation, 'nd this despite the fact
that "Androcles And The Lion" was
performed in a most creditable man-
Ton Powers, cast as Napoleon in
the first play, and Claire Eames, act-
ing in the roleof t4e Lady, were su-
preme in their res ective parts. In a
play that is practically devoid of ac-
tion, these two artists engaged in aj
battle of wits which was so well con-
sumated that the high degree of in-
terest aroused by the opening scene
was maintained throughout the per-
The parts of the Innkeeper and the
British Captai 'were interpreted with
the same splendid quality that marked
the work of the two leading charac-
ters, while the settings, although un-I
changed throughout the performance,
were well done, blending in perfect
harmony with the work of the actors.
Claire Eames played the leading
female role in "Androcles And The
Lion" but her work failed to approach
her accomplishments in the first pro-
duction. Perhaps it was due to the
fact that the part of Lavinia did not
offer the same possibilities as that of
the Lady.
Tom Powers also took part in the
second play, playing the part of the
Captain, but he too suffered by the
change of roles. Androcles, Ferro-
vius and the Lion were enacted with
considerable skill, but the work of
the actors in these parts, allied with
a superior Shaw play, was oversha-
dowed by the splendid acting of Tom
Powers and Claire Eames in "The
Man Of Destiny."
"Smart-aleck" Woolcott, they call
him; and next to the great George
Nathan, along with Kenneth Mac-
Gowan, he has stood in the younger
generation as the finest dramatic crit-
ic of the New York press. His en-
emies, the actors, have claimed that
he is willing to twist a Duse into a
rag for the sake of a clever epigram-
all Forty-Second street waits for his
mot on each new production-but for
all their venom, his wit and apprecia-
tion have always stood the test of an
intelligent prejudice.
