First Performance of Cercle Play.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The first performance of "Le Medecin Malgre Lui," look place last evening in Brattle Hall.

J. P. Sachs 1900 as M. Robert and Lucas individualized his parts more than any one else, spoke his lines distinctly, and used his hands well. Of the female characters E. L. Dudley 1900 as Martine gesticulated with good effect. The other parts were all acted remarkably well, there were almost none of the awkward lapses and patently forced gestures which usually mar amateur performances. Indeed the ease and continuity of action and the effort to avoid confusion on the stage led several times to an unnecessary restlessness that was tiring to the eye.

The ballets were all pretty, and the first one is especially funny. The exits, however, were somewhat ragged. G. B. Hanavan 2L. was particularly graceful and sure in a "pas seul" at the end of the second act.
