New York to See "The Scarecrow"
It has been announced that Henry B. Harris, a New York theatrical manager has purchased "The Scarecrow" from Percy MacKaye '97, and intends to produce it early next season. Mr. Edgar Selwyn will star in the play and will take the title role.
"The Scarecrow" was written by Mr. MacKaye in 1907, but was not produced until the Dramatic Club took it up this fall. Mr. Harris was present at the first presentation of the piece by the Dramatic Club last Tuesday and liked it so much that he had Mr. Selwyn see it on Thursday. As a result an offer to produce the play professionally was made to Mr. MacKaye, and accepted.
