"The Red Hussar," a comic opera written by H. P. Stevens, was performed Monday night at the Globe Theatre for the first time in Boston. The post is well drawn and in such a way that the play is interesting to the end. The music, by Edward S lomon, is not wonderfully original, but some of it has enough rhythm to make it popular.
Miss Marie Tempest, who took the part of "Kitty," is a remarkably good actress and singer for comic opera. She first acted this part in London, and there, as well as 11 this country, she has had great success. She so outshines the other members of the company that one can sorcery remember anything about them, when the play is over, except that they did not act poorly enough to be conspicuous.
"A Straight Tip," by J. J. McNally is being played at the Hollis Street Theatre. The play is well received and deserves praise, as it is not at all bad for a farce.
