Since the spring of 1882, when the marvellous success of the presentation of Oedipus Tyrannos at Harvard warranted the reproduction of that play in New York, no Greek play of any description has been attempted here. It is with a fraternal feeling that we hail the advent of the "Acharnians," to be presented to-night by the students of the University of Pennsylvania in New York. This play has been given before in Philadelphia, where it created a most favorable impression, and was received with the greatest marks of approval by all present. The success of this play has attracted the attention of Harvard's professors interested in the classics and the drama, and they have gone to New York for the sole purpose of seeing what is truly a rarity in this country, but that which at Oxford and Cambridge is almost an annual institution, and one which is entered upon with as much zest and enthusiasm as the boat race on the Thames. We trust that the spirit which has promted the University of Pennsylvania to put the "Archarnians" on the stage, merely lies dormant here, to awake at some future date refreshed and invigorated for its long rest, and shine with greater lustre than ever before. Meanwhile the students of the University of Pennsylvania have our best wishes for a complete success of their endeavor.
