Edward Elliott Figure Redpath Edward Elliott M R. ELLIOTT inaugurates his twentieth year in his art of enacting Stories from the Stage. These years have been devoted wholly to his profession—a life work—and to-day he stands as an exemplification of the best attainments, highest aims, and most lasting successes of the Lyceum. No further comment is necessary. What He Does Mr. Elliott stands for the Lyceum as the moral and intellectual substitute for the theatre. He takes some play that has been a great success and credit to the stage, arranges it into a concise story told by the characters. These characters are acted out, made real living people—no wigs, scenery nor costumes are employed, but you are made to see the play as vividly almost as though acted out by a company of players. You hear it with an artistic unity, a definiteness of purpose and in an atmosphere impossible in any stage performance. Old Favorites It is Mr. Elliott's purpose to present on the platform each year the most successful play of that season. The plays now in vogue are mentioned under special heads. When one of the old favorites is desired for presentation it must be made known. Christopher, Jr. A very amusing, fascinating story, made famous by John Drew and Maude Adams. An American Citizen A Nat Goodwin Comedy in which Mr. Elliott is especially happy. A Gilded Fool Made famous by Mr. Goodwin. Very artistic. Capt. Lettarblair Made famous by E. H. Sothern. A most charming story. David Harum A very effective performance of the celebrated novel. A Christmas Carol A masterful rendition of Charles Dickens' gem.

Featured Programs For this season will again be featured the two greatest successes ever presented on the platform, given by Mr. Elliott on over 200 Courses, and universally pronounced a feature of the season. The Man of the Hour A play of the moment. A tale of here and now. A story of clean government and high-class citizenship, and of what a man may be in life if he is brave against all obstacles, and who does right because right is right. A superb presentation of the great play which has had such a phenomenal success. The Lion and the Mouse A Story of American Life. The most human, vital, thrilling story ever presented on the American platform. Arranged from Chas. Klein's great play which has had the phenomenal run of eight hundred nights in New York City alone. A fascinating story that holds you like a vise, makes you laugh without any effort to be funny. A story with a message that makes men and women think. As powerful as a sermon. The Man From Home Written by Booth Tarkington and Harry Leon Wilson. The great success of the season, breaking the record in Chicago; over a year in New York. A satirical comedy of an international marriage—teaching a lesson without preaching. A splendid, pure, vital play; very amusing. In active preparation, and no doubt ready for presentation this season The Servant in the House Chas. Rann Kennedy's great morality play. THIS PLAY CONTAINS NO HUMOR , but it has made a profound sensation. A great play for the man who thinks he is a saint, and the man who knows he is a sinner.
