Perfect Cast For The Critic'

A perfect cast for Richard Sher-
idan's "The Critic," which will be
presented tomorrow in the Lydia
Mendelssohn Theatre, was conceived
yesterday by Prof. William P. Hal-
stead, director of the play.
For the critic himself Professor
Halstead named George Jean Na-
than, and for the impressario anm
his assistant, Mr. Puff and Mr. Dan-
gel, he chose George Bernard Shaw
and Alexander Woollcott.
Mme. Kirsten Flagstad of the Met-
ropolitan Opera Compapy was se-
lected as the heroine, Tilburina, and
Ramon Navarro as Wiskerandos, the
hero. For the role of Tilburina's con-
fidant, Zazu Pitts was named.
The right man for the Earl of
Leicester Professor Halstead felt was
Mischa Auer while he selected as the
Earl's two generals, Sir Christopher
Hatton and Sir Walter Raleigh, Joe
E. Brown and Hiram Sherman.
The Marx Brothers were also given
parts in the cast with Groucho por-
traying a justice and Harpo, Lord
Burleigh, the main character of the
play within the play who appears
seldom and says nothing. For the
role of Signor Pasticcio Ritornello, an
Italian who becomes inarticulate over

ordering some music, Wimpy was
For the Beef-eater any Western
star except Gene Autry was recom-
mended. Ned Sparks was made
prompter and the sentinels, who are
usually asleep, would be the Ritz
Brothers in the ideal cast. The re-
maining recommendations called for
!Vildred Bailey to play the part of
Britannia, Kate Smith to play the
Thames and a chorus of half Vera
Zorinas and half Fanny Brices to
portray the waves.
Hopkins, Yoakum To Talk
Dr. Louis A. Hopkins, director of
the Summer Session, and Dean Clar-
ence S. Yoakum of the Graduate
