a party of tourists, starting at the
foot of the Jungfrau ascend the famous
peak to its summit, is the attraction
at the Garrick Theatre, Detroit, all this
week. It comes there with a large
cast, special symphony orchestra, and
after a long and prosperous engage-
ment at the Shubert Theater, New
York. The cast includes Harry Conor,
who is the chief comedian; Forrest
Huff, Fritzi von Busing, Stella Norelle,
the prima donna; Elizabeth Goodall,
Miriam Folger, Robinson Newbold,
Harold Everts, John E. Wheeler,
Harry T. Hanlin and 80 others. A
feature of the production is the large
and vell trained chorus.
Much has been heard of the Jung-
. frau scene which is truly remarkable,
both from a pictorial standpoint and
the way in which the scenes seem to
melt into one another. There are
three scenes in the second act and
these show the foot aid peak of the
mountain and a point in between.
