PLAYTHINGS Donald Wolfit Puts Us in His Debt With 'Volpone'-A. R. T. Dos 'Yellow Jack' Donald Wolfit, the English lUr, did a nice thing the other night. Re brought to the Century Theater a production of Ben Jonson't "Volpone," a production full of bounce and spirit that provides brisk entertainment and at the same time gives this country Its first look at the play as Ben Jonson wrote It. It was done here once before, with a better cast but in an English translation of a Oerman translation of the original. Ben Jonson himself wrote It better. "Volpone" found the English company at its best, several of its members, who had got no sparks from previous roles, stepping out and acting for all they were worth. If they had made this their first production here they would have found It much easier to excite American admiration. There is good Elizabethan vivacity in their "Volpone" and none of the play's cutting edge Is dulled. "Volpone" Is a kind of Jonsonian "Little Foxes" or "Another Part of the Forest," picturing the gluttony that human beings can be capable of In their hunger for gain, stripping the skin off the rascal and then laughing at them lustily. Lillian Hellman is sober about It, Ben Jonson delighted in making the greedy writhe. Mr. Wolfit plays Volpone, the Fox, with all his resource. If this actor's production of "King Lear" was dull and stringy, it did not say for him all that is to be said. Perhaps his mistake in this country has been in doinj too many of the great roles. In his eagerness to be an actor of few limitations, he exhibits his limitations more vividly than if he concentrated on one or two roles and let himself mature in them. Versatility is no great virtue if it spreads an actor thin. Mr. Wolflt's defect is that he plays thinly. His aptitude is always unmistakable. He asks too much of it. So he Jumps from one big role to another without giving any one of them its due. A facile actor, he is content to let facility do the work for him. He plays for surface effect. This he gets quickly and with precision. But he leaves out a lot of the character he is playing. He skims. No doubt the defect is occupational. He and his company have been playing under difficult circumstances for a long while now and have had little opportunity to pause and take stock of themselves. Perhaps when they come to this country again they will have recapitulated. Sidney Howard's "Yellow Jack," revived on Thursday evening at the International Theater by the American Repertory,, is a play quite the opposite of "Volpone." Its characters are unselfish scientists fighting for the good of the human race. Searching for the secrets of the spread of yellow fever, they are ready to die themselves If by doing so they can save millions. One of them does give his life. It is one of the important American plays, as enthralling as melodrama. And the American Repertory Theater does it well, if not so well as it will be done in a few days, when the actors get several more performances under their belts. Certainly it is a play that should be seen by all who have tastes for something better than pure nonsense in the theater. MUSIC'S OVERTONES Popularity of Opera Spreads As Adequate Companies Form Drawings bv WiLham Auf rbach-Lrve MARGARET RUTHERFORD and John Gielgud in "The Importance of Being Earnest," with which comedy by Oscar Wilde the English star begins his season tomorrow night at the Royale Theater. John Gielgud Comes Back in Plays by Wilde and Congreve John Gielgud. who achieved ajportanoe of Being Earnest" for the triumph here a decade ago in first time in 1930. He presented it "Hamlet," returns in a comedy role tomorrow night when he brings his London company into the Royale Theater for a seven-week engagement of Oscar Wildes "The Importance of Being Earnest." The Wilde company is the first item of Mr. Gielgud's season of comedy in America. It will be followed by-six weeks of William Congreve's "Lave for Love." The Theater Guild and John C. Wilson, in association with H. M. Tennent. Ltd., of London, are sponsoring the engagement. Mr. Gielgud's is the sixth major presentation of the Wilde comedy in New York. The first was nearly 52 years ago on April 22, 1895 with the late Henry Miller in the again in 1939 and when war broke out it was for a time the only play in London. Its success encouraged him to move it from the Hippodrome to the Haymarket and later to the Phoenix, where It ran for months. Its audiences during the war months included large numbers of American service men and women. Mr. Gielgud's two previous ap pearances in America disclosed him in serious roles The most memorable was his "Hamlet." and before that he was seen in "The Patriot," produced in 1928. He will play Valentine in the Congreve comedy. and have the support of most of the company arriving tomorrow By JOHN BALL Jr. Last week two operatic events of more than usual interest took place in Brooklyn, both at the Academy of Music. The first was the appearance of the Misses Flori and Rita Caprlno in "Madame Butterfly"; the second was the excellent performance of Motart's seldom-heard opera "Cos! Fan Tutte," presented by the Mannes Opera Company. In the first instance two young women were making their debuts. They attracted a capacity house, part of which may be accounted for by the popularity of the opera and part of which could easily be novelty interest, since the Caprinos have been well advertised since their arrival from the West Coast a short while ago. In the case of both performances the prices at the box-office were entirely within reason and at a considerably lower scale than usualy prevails for operatic attractions. Writing In the February issue of the Musical Digest, the distinguished' authority on opera, Edward J. Smith, points out the rapidly growing Interest in this form of music here in America. Says Mr. Smith, "In the year 1900 there were three opera companies in America presenting works of 31 composers. In 1947 there will be approximately 200 companies presenting works of over 40 composers and. operatic performances will exceed the 2.000 mark. These facts speak for themselves." This would certainly tend to prove that opera is not something for the select few. but actualy a very popular form of music which will find its audience almost anywhere if the performances are at least acceptable and if the prices remain within limits. One of the reasons why opera is an expensive form of music is the high cost of top-flight vocal talent. At the' Metropolitan the ceiling fee has been understood to be $1,000 a performance, a gratifying compensation, certainly. When a cast is assembled with several singers who have to be paid with four-figure checks, the prices at the box-office are going to soar and there Is nothing that the management can do about it if these stars are demanded and If they cannot be persuaded to reconsider their fees. Returning now to the two Brooklyn performances of last week, we have no Idea as to how the respective casta were compensated, but the fact that the tickets were on sale at popular prices Indicates that these singers were reasonable in their demands. This fact, however, did not deter them from giving very good performances. The Mannes company, in particular, made no attempt to attract cash customers by reason of celebrities in the cast, they just presented good singers in a thoroughly rehearsed and well thought out production with entirely happy, results. We can see where it is a nice thing to go to the opera and both see and hear celebrated stars on the stage, that is, If the family budget can stand the strain. On the other hand, if economy is a consideration, this does not mean that good opera must be foresworn. There are many performances of opera by competent if not famous artists that are more than worth the less than drastic price schedules at which the tickets are offered. Two good performances, by two different companies, proved the point here in Brooklyn this past week.

The practical courses include a radio workshop, which will regularly present a show over WMCA. a comedy of that day, "Come Out of the Kitchen." On that tour he jettisoned a lot of cherished theories developed in the classrooms, but it was good riddance, he says, since that single tour taught him more than any single venture since. He had further good schooling at the Provincetown Theater, an play, "The Mermaids Singing." For the record let it be stated here that Mr. Abel's screen portrayals Include such offerings as "The Three Musketeers," "Fury," "The Green Light," "Kiss and Tell" and most recently, "The Kid From Brooklyn.'
