The School for Scandal.
The revival of the old comedies at the Boston Museum last winter was so successful that a new series has been begun this year. Sheridan's charming comedy, "The School for Scandal," was produced Monday night before a large house. The performance was distinctly above mediocrity, but there was little acting that could be called brilliant except, perhaps, Miss Annie Clarke's Lady Teazle. Mr. Eben Plympton, as Charles Surface, was far less stilted than usual. Mr. Charles Barron's Sir Peter Teazle was interesting, but hardly a just conception of the part. Mr. Wilson is always amusing, but perhaps his Crabtree bordered a little too closely on the farcical. Next week The Heir at Law and She Stoops to Conquer will be presented.
