The critic's view Thw«., April 12, lf?3 (iKKKLEY (Colo.) TRIBUNE US By WILLIAM GLOVER AP Dram* Critic NEW YORK (AP) - A pUy that "de*ply moved" Tennessee Williams, "The Soldier," opened Tuesday night at the Provincetown Playhouse. The same effect on many other people is unlikely. Williams sent his note of praise after reading a copy of. the manuscript thoughtfully submitted by its author, Nicholas Bcllitto. The upshot was a showcase staging and now, on to the greater hazards of off- Broadway competition. The labored, melodramatic plot centers on Johnny, a U.S. Army sergeant jusl home from three war years. He is the family pride' and joy, owner of a shelf full of athletic trophies which Pop has kepi shiny in anticipation of coming business triumphs. Meanwhile, the yQUnger son, Wayne, sits in a corner, an unloved drone. gSo far, there are reminders oj;"Sticks and Bones" in it all, particularly because of Johnny's nightmare guill over blowing up a battlefront house II)at was full of children. ·Jhen Susan, the pretty who promised faithfully to await his return, turns out,to be lustily two-timing with neglected Wayne. After that Johnny loses his job, can't find another and gradually skids into catatonic character-reversal, laced with spasms of violence. Although much of the dialogue is amateurish, the development of characters awkardly wooden, Bellitto indeed occasionally shows traces of theatrical poetry and sensitive awareness of private anguish. Miss Chapin's staging is workshop basic, with one spectral dream sequence lhat would be more effective without the strobe lighting effects that have long lost novelty impact. Richard Ferrugio's living room set. neatly spruces up the Provincetown's cramped facilities. Among the players are Tom Kindle, in the title role; Megan Hunt, Sam Locante, Ferrugio doing double duty, Gregory Tigani and Paula Maliandi. In season to come they may look back on "The Soldier" as a kind of basic training for better things. Williams, by the way, was not in the opening night audience.

She is a widow who at 40 has the feeling that life is behind her, and the bitterness she', radiates down-beats upon her two.teen-age daught.ers,'as she herself has,.b.eeri beaten down by-life: The role of Beatrice in "Marigolds," opening Friday at Cooper Twin No. 1, is not one that Joanne Woodward would have thought of for herself. "The idea was all Paul's, who says he bought it because he thought it was the one role -- underline one -- that he thought I couldn't play." She laughs, "How's that for a husband for you?" As for Paul Newman, he seems gradually lo be switching to the other side of the camera. "Marigolds" is the third film he has directed, the others being "Rachel, Rachel" starring Miss .Woodward and "Sometimes a Great Notion" starring himself. Until 1804, the person who received the second largest number of votes in the Electoral College became the vice president. Cables End BtLIKEK PIZZA Ht« 3M-4M7 1105 26th An.

Children's Matinee 'Hansel Crete!' mntnrp.nn "Hansel and Gretel," starring one of Ihe most unusual and entertaining casts in film history, is an outstanding gem in MGM's Childrcns' Matinee Program. The Matineo Program includes pictures t h a t have won Academy Awards and Parents Magazine Awards. This film version of "Hansel and Gretel" will show Saturday and Sunday afternoons at the Colorado Theater. The highly acclaimed motion picture was first seen after 15 years of experimentation and research and two years ol actual filming. No orthodix actors appear in Ihe novel Michael Myerberg film. All roles, both human and animal, are enacted by fabulous little folk called Kinemins. About one-third life size, they are made of a secret chemical mixture for flesh, plus human hair and magnetised feet. In addition to 35 of these unique creations, Mr. Myerherg's KHULING TO JUIU.IARD NEW YORK (AP) -- Sixten Ehrling will join the Juilliard School as head of the orchestral department, beginning in October. At present, the Swedish-born Ehrling is music director of the Detroit Symphony, a position he has held since 1963 and which he is relinquishing at the lend of the current season. At Juilliard, Ehrling will con- Iduct the Concert Orchestra and supervise the training of student conductors. Juilliard has Ihree orchestras. Ehrling succeeds Alfred Wallenstein, who has retired and does some guest appearances. insistence upon complete novelty led to an even more amazing invention, electronically controlled heads for camera closenps. Each Kinemin is represented by an extra-enlarged head which is capable of over 800,000 expressions controlled by electrical impulses from a specially designed maehine.
