Music Drama,
I ~- -
When Don Mullally titled his com-
edy "Laff- That Off," he threw down a
challenge which audiences during a
year in New York, were unable to
ignore, and patrons of the Bonstelle
Playhouse will have an opportunity
to laugh it off for one week beginning
Monday night, August 8th.
"Laff That Off" is a comedy that
commands cackles. The author has
overlooked no gag and passed no arti-
fice to extract laughter.
The play deals with the lives of
three young bachelors who, to beat,
the high cost of living while each i,
carving a career for himself, are liv-
ing together in an apartment. Into
this place one of them brings a youngl
and beautiful girl whom he met by
chance one night. All agree not to
naketlove to the beautifulrunknown,
but to accept her as their "sister." 11
All promptly fall in love with her,
humorous complications ensuing.
The author is to be held responsible
for a quantity of humor of the so-
called Broadway type, and for con-
versation that abounds in unconven- I
tional metaphor in "Laff That Off" but,
the Bonstelle Players have been cast,
so perfectly as to give an interpreta-
tion that will make his words standI
out in bold relief.
"Laff That Off" is a breezy, refresh-
ing comedy, guaranteed to make
theater goers forget the hot weather. }

Entering upon its fifth month in
Detroit next Sunday night, "Broad-
way," the "night club classic" pro-
duced by Jed Harris from the script
of Philip Dunning and George Abbott,4
celebrates the 150th performance at
the Garrick theater, Detroit, nextj
Thursday. The company which was
specially organized for Detroit will
actually have played this number of
performances Monday night as there
were four. performances in Toledo
prior to coming to the Motor City.
While this company was primarily l
intended for Detroit patronage, 1t
moves on to Chicago next month and
there is a possibility that the Detroit {
engagement will close a week or two
before the Chicago opening to enable;
the organization to take a brief vaca-
tion before starting upon the engage-
ment which, there is every reason to
believe, will keep them busy in the
Windy City until next summer. Good
seats are now available for every per- I
formance and those who have delayed
seeing this extraordinary production
should immediately take the present
opportunity. As soon as the final
date of the Detroit engagement is an-
nounced, there is no doubt that there1
will again be the frantic demand forI
tickets that greeted the early months
of the engagement here.
The excellent company seen in De-1
troit includes Wallace Ford as the l
"hoofer," Joseph King as the detec- I
tive, Marshall Bradford as the chief
bootlegger, Grace Huff as the veter-
an contralto, Harriet E. MacGibbon as
the muchsought "Billie," Gustave Rol-
land as the cabaret proprietor, and a
score or more of others who are ex-
pertly cast to give a performance that
ranks with the highest entertainment
ever seen in a theater
"Broadway's" run at the Garrick
theater is duplicating its New York
successes. Every performnance finds
"repeaters" in the audience-those en-
thusiastic playgoers who sit through a
second and third time and still have
their interest piqued by the swiftly
moving action and uncanny knowledge
of human interest.
