10 "I Jack to Cleopatra" an Artistic Success The society column of a "well-known Brooklyn newspaper," flashed on the screen at the Academy of Music ' Friday evening of last week in the prologue of the School - Settlement Show, "Back to Cleopatra," acted like a magic carpet and carried the audience through many wondrous lands. The clipping enumerated the beautiful wedding presents of a certain Miss Lou Gordon; an Egyptian ring, a Chinese screen, an Old English tapestry, a Louis XV fan, Seventeenth Century Dutch figurines, an Old Spanish Century painting, a Russian Doll, and , with the rising of the curtain on each scene a gift was revealed. Possibly the present every one wanted most was the Dutch figureines, when the girl and boy of Holland stepped out from under, the wind mill to flirt with one another for a few brief moments, and sing "In the Garden of Dreams." The Screen from China was also very desirable, and Grace Farrar, as the figure on it, told a tale of Old China to difficult music wonderfully well. An Egyptian ring, which Cleopatra bestowed upon Lotusa was the first gift. In this scene Lisbeth Hig-gins made Lotusa a real dancing girl, and J. Anne Collyer was handsome in the title role of Cleopatra. The English Tapestry was picturesque with Margery Gelien as Lady Guincvera and Raymond Clarke the Lord Harold, and Virginia 'Mauret danced beautifully, holding the gift from France, an exquisite fan. The Spanish Portrait, Lisbeth Higgins, like the little Dutch figures, came to life for a brief time, and with Poita Povitch, did an Argentine Tango. This was a particularly artistic scene with Fernando, the painter, Richard Sheldrake, and his friends singing and watching the dancing. Lucky bride that received the dancing doll . from Russia! Virginie Mauret made this gift quite irresistible and in the scene there were other fascinating toys including beautifully trained soldiers, a jack-in-the-box, Doris Bergen, and a singing doll, Marjorie Fuller-ton. ; Abba Glusker played the Tpymaker's wife who finally put the toys to bed and blew out the candles. America was the scene of the epilogue in which a dance was being held at the Vanderitz and after the guests had departed Marion T. McDermott as Confetti did a striking dance. Miss Adele T. Katz wrote much of the music for "Back to Cleopatra," and conducted Friday evening. It was under her direction that this artistic production was made.
