LE BOURGEOIS GENTILHOMME.
A Second Performance Confirms the Success of the French Play.
The character of Monsieur Jourdain, taken by H. Warren Cram '97, was most excellently followed out. Though a most difficult part, his accent is perfect, and his interpretation of the part of a simpleton is most amusing. Nicole, the servant, though he spoke too quickly and his accent is not finished, yet entered with great spirit into his role; his laughter especially upon his entrance was natural and very infectious.
J. W. Frothingham who played Lucille made a most effective girl. H. W. Walch as Madame Jourdain was rather stiff at first, but later in the play did better. The trio in the first act by Valentine '98, Denison '99 and Waterhouse '98 and the ballets did much to enliven the different parts of the play.
The Pierian furnished the orchestral music.
