The most popular play of its kind
which has appeared upon the stage in
years, "Daddy-Long-Legs," will be
shown at the Whitney on Monday
night, Miss Frances Stirling plays the
part of Judy Abbott and Edwin Brandt'
appears as Pendleton. Miss Sterling
began her stage career with the Co-
burn players and she is well fitted for
her part in the Jean Webster comedy.
Edward Brandt will be remembered
on account of .his appearance in "The
Garden of Allah," and "The Winning
of Barbara Worth.".
The story of the play is the de-
lightfully human one of the little
orphan Judy who is being educated by
a mysterious stranger whom she nick-
names Daddy-Long-Legs. Her excit-
ing existence and subsequent love af-
fair make "Daddy-Log-Legs" a story
that is interesting and intensely hu-
man to the very end.
"Mary's Ankle," May Tully's farce
comedy which comes to the Whitney
on Tuesday night, features the young
star, Winifred St. Claire. The story
of the piece may best be described
as a complicated honeymoon. The
complications result from the sending
of a fake wedding invitation by one
of three penniless young men, in
order to extract much needed wed-
ding presents from close fisted re-
latives. The young lady who has been
an unconscious partner in the scheme,
eventually appears in the person of
a bewitching young woman, Mary
Jane Smith. The New York company
includes William Karl Hackett,. John
McKenna, Emma DeWeale, Maude
Nolan, and a number of others.
