Music And Drama
TONIGHT: The opening per-
ormance by Mimes of Robert Sher-
wood's historical burlesque The
Road to Rome: Mimes Theatre at
By Prof. O. J. Campbell.
A dramatic festival at the Uni-
versity of- Michigan could be open-
ed no more appropriately than by
the presentation of Sophocles' An-
tigone. Drama began in Athens as
part of a great civic celebration
given in honor of Bacchus, patron
of both comedy and tragedy. Be-
fore almost the entire male poula-
tion of the city and many visitors
from other parts of Greece who
came to Athens at this time, dif-
ferent plays were given on succes-
sive days. Attendance at the the-
atre on such occasions was in no
sense a casual or perfunctory thing
The drama was given, for its sea-
son, first place in the attention and
interest of the community. Further-
more, a Greek play such as Anti-
gone was created by a union of all
of the arts of the theatre in their
most perfect form. Heroic imper-
sonation, superb declamation, po-
etry, music and rhythmical action
all united to deepen the under-
standing of the audience and to
intensify its emotional. sympathies.
The chorus sang and danced in
stately fashion its measures and
even the individual actors sang
some of the lyrical passages and
occasionally joinedtheir voices
with that of the chorus.
To recreateathe impression made
by such an art under the condi-
tions of the modern stage is to
challenge the highest sort of co-
operation of a university audience
and a highly intelligent group of
actors. Miss Margaret Anglin is
the American actress most likely
to bring success to this high enter-
prise. A great artist at the sum-
mit of her career, she, better than
any other American actress, should
be able to make the great Anti-
gone live again in the nobility and
splendor given her by Sophocles.
Mimes opens again tonight with
a performance of Robert Sher-
wood's essay in historical burlesque
that, turiaed out to be something
more than historical burlesque. In
1927, there was a demand that
John Erskine dramatize his Helen
of Troy. ,rskine enjoyed the idea
but savoured it too long. Sherwood
stole a march on him by dramatiz-
ing a similar historical episode in
the same sly, satirical manner.
Amytis, the talkative but sensa-
tive Greek wife of Fabius, the dic-
tator of Rome, becomes annoyed by
dthe sentimental ideal and plati-
tude '" ft A her Roman husband
When Harnibal, whom seeing she
erotically idealizes, plans his at-
tack on Rome, she secretly travels
to his camp to astound him with
the stifling question: What Price
Glory? Hannibal flounders for an
answer, but while floundering dis-
covers that the sex life of Amytis
is in no sense complete. The dis-
covery shows him the futility of
glory; so Amytis spends a night in
his tent. Rome, of course, is for
the time being saved.

played the title parts in the popu-
lar New York production. It was
incisive, canny, sophisticated fun.
The elements that make for attrac-
tiveness are numerous: porno-
graphic trifling, smart epigrams,
naughty burlesque of history. The
contemporary social criticism is
obviously, hence pleasantly done:
the Roman mouths roll Rotarian
platitudes, which the perceiving
Amytis promptly ridicules. All
Sherwood's objections to contem-
porary society are wittily expressed
and because familiar, there is the
added joy of recognition. The play
is distinctly in the Shaw Caesar
and Cleopatra tradition and prom-
ises to be the most worthwhile
