A review, by Minna Miller.
Willian/ Archer is a successful
critic-so honest a critic that he
considers himself a better teacher of
the art of play-writing than play-
wright. "The Green Goddess" is
melodrama without the gadgets nec-
essary to effective melodrama-only
one real murder and a single res-
The program is right when it af-I
firms "The Green Goddess" to be a
"one-man" play, for one trembles to
think of the performance without
Reynolds Evans in the role of the
Rajah of Ruhk. The rest of the cast
is correctly called "supporting," pro-
viding rather a decent emotional hub-
bub in contrast to the calm suavity
of the imperturbable oriental. Mr.
Wait and Miss Horine share the few
honors that remain after Mr. Evans
leaves the stage. With the exception
bf Mr. Evans, however, we find little
difference between the professionals
and the campus dramatic activists in
the cast, William Bishop and Robert
Wetzel. We have exhausted the cast
when we remember the Cockney with
the Indiana accent and the rescuing
lieu tenant.
Perhaps we are too used to Mr.
Shuter's excellence in stage design,
for with the exception of Mrs. Mer-
rick's contribution in the way of or-
iental proprieties, there are few nice
things to say about the sets. The
"cloth-of-silver drop curtain" swings
back too quickly allowing the first
few minutes of the performance to
be lost in the confusion of seat-
ing those who came with the suppo-
sition that the Rockford player
would not be punctual.
. Despite the handicap of playing in
"the coolest theatre in Ann Arbor,"
despite the lack of smoothness, which
is due (we are told) to the hasty re-
cruiting of Ann Arbor talent (which
is, however, real talent) the players
succeeded in entertaining a full house
with what the program calls a re-
polished and modernized "old-fash
ioned tiriller."
