Under the head, "Shakespeare
Alive." there was an editorial in the
Hartford "Courant" lately, on the per-
formances of Sothern and Marlowe,
who will appear at Overholser Thea-
tre, Wednesday evening, December 17
in Hamlet The "Courant" said "One
may say ihat part of the charm of the
plays consisted In the things that
were not in them. There was no
problem of sex. There were men anil
women in them, it is true; and these
men and women behaved very much
as men and women have behaved since
mankind obtained its functions and
qualities; but all was direct, natural
accepting things as they are in ihe
human family without shame and
without ulterior thought. The smelly
closet of bad thoughts, which is one
characteristic of some of the plays
of our day. found no room for itBelf
in the spacious freedom and frankness
of these plays. It is true that they
were more or less cut, but this w as not
to purify them. They were cut to ob-
tain room for them, and to make the
action direct. Everything outside of
the human mind was so different three
hundred years ago, and the human
mind thinks Itself so superior to what
it was then! No doubt the unaffected
naturalness of Mr. Southern and Miss
Marlowe was a part of this spell-
bound attention. Every word was un-
derstood, every word seemed the tit
and inevitable word required. The
consummate reasonableness of the
players, if we may so define it. both
minor and major, made this possible
—not so much possible, either, as the
only way. Shakespeare is so poetic,
go rich in strong words, so powerful
in their combination, that the Inward
impulse is to turn his text outside na-1
ture'8 course, and preach it, declaim
it, shout it. With these players it
became merely an ordinary vehicle for
conveying thought from one to the
other The row of Florodora girls are
sometimes good to look upon But it
is not only a refreshment but a
strengthening of the mental sinews
when one can get back to the old
words of Shakeaspere spoken as in
homely, household talk"
