TOM MEIGHAN In "Blind Alleys" At Loew's Brevoort next week EF. ALBEE THEATRE Helen Menken, prominent dramatic star, has returned to her first histrionic love, vaudeville, and will head the bill at the E. F. Albee Theatre this coming week. .' Miss Menken was originally discovered by Gus Edwards, when scarcely more than a child, and appeared in the two-a-day in several of his juvenile revues. Then came many years of hard, but successful work in stock companies in different parts of the country. At last John Golden "found" her, gave her the stellar role in "Seventh Heaven" and she "arrived" a full-fledged star on Broadway. Miss Menken played this piece for four consecutive years, carving a firm niche for herself in the theatrical hall of fame. It is in a condensed version of this play by Austin Strong that Miss Menken now appears in vaudeville. Mile. Odali Careno, internationally famous Grand Opera dramatic soprano, will be heard in a pleasing song recital. Mile. Careno is a young European prima donna who has sung leading roles at La Scala, Milan, the Opera Comique, Paris, Covent Garden, London, and in Brussels and Berlin. Her program includes the aria from "Cavalleria Rusti-cana," "Estrellita," "For You Alone" and "Tes Yeux," each number being sung in its original language.' Charles Withers will present .his . classic skit, "Withers' OP'ry," a travesty on the old-time variety show as played in a one-night stand, where the theatre manager is the entire house and stage staff in his own person. A company of brilliant travesty specialists assists Withers in the various roles of variety , performers. It is one of the best ' hokum acts ever staged, dealing with the theatre The dancing features will be Harriett Hoctor and William Holbrook in "Dancing, as Usual." Miss Hoctor is one of the greatest American products of the school of Genee, and most pleasant to look upon. She and Mr. Holbrook have an T OEW'S METROPOLITAN In point of acting, direction and story, "The Fire Brigade" on the coming week's program at Loew's Metropolitan, qualifies as one of the really great pictures. It comes direct from the long run at the Central on Broadway, and brings back Charles Ray, as a young fireman who finds himself tangled in a net of politics and love, and the denoument comes in one of the most thrilling climaxes ever screened. May McAvoy is seen in the leading feminine role. While "The Fire Brigade" is a spectacular human interest story of the fire fighters, it is not merely a preachment, but includes a heart warming love story, and laughs in the life of the unsung heroes. The popular radio and recording artist, Margaret Young, "a bolt from the blues," will be the big vaudeville headliner. ; The others will include the Gilbert and Avery Revue, with a cast - of seven ; George Broadhurst and company in a playlet ; Bigelow and Lee, and Niobe, the water nymph. ' " ? , : FRITZ LEIBER In "The Field God" At Werba's Brooklyn next week GOMING TO WERBA'S BROOKLYN The Marx Brothers in "The Cocoanuts,", the hit of hits of the New York season, will be the attraction at Werba's Brooklyn Theatre the week commencing Monday, April 18th, with matinees on Wednesday and Saturday. "The Cocoanuts" is a sparkling and pic-, turesque pageant of clever fun-makers, beautiful women, rich and varied costumes and elaborate stage pictures. Irving Berlin has written score and lyrics of a number of songs with a swing destined to provoke popularity.
