MARGARET STAHL, Interpreter of Plays
INTERPRETER OF PLAYS
Miss Margaret Stahl is generally acknowledged one of the foremost dramatic interpreters. In recreating the plays of modern times for the platform she evinces a very high form of art. With unusual physical charm and dressed in the exquisite taste of an artist-queen, her portrayals have all the virility of a man and the finesse of a woman. She has the spirit of mental aggressiveness, and the modern grasp of things, intellectual and artistic.
Recent comments from pleased committeemen tell the story of her platform achievements. Two are quoted as follows:
Miss Margaret Stahl's interpretation of the play, The Enemy, by Channing Pollock, before the anniversary meeting of the East Liverpool Rotary Club was one of the finest entertainments that the members of the Club have ever been privileged to hear. The characters in The Enemy were as vividly portrayed as if enacted by a troop of players. Her manner of presentation was forceful and appealing and her remarkable dramatic effect held the wrapt attention of her hearers. Miss Stahl possesses superior intelligence and great personal charm. Her work in The Enemy places her among the country's foremost interpreters of plays.—The Rotary Club of East Liverpool, Ohio, H. B. Barth, Secretary.
The stage was peopled with characters from Channing Pollock's play, The Enemy, as Margaret Stahl, dramatic interpreter, gave that play at the University of Miami to a large audience Wednesday night. Reading with such effect the audience was almost unaware of the fact that a single voice was portraying the characters and events of this four-act drama, Miss Stahl established the theme of the drama that HATE is the enemy of people and nations and that victories are victories of peace. Arriving at her remarkable climaxes without over-exaggeration of interest Miss Stahl made a shaft of light of the words of the professor-philosopher who said wars are built upon arrogance, jealousy, greed and vanity. Miss Stahl's unusual artistry more than established the reputation that had preceded her appearance.—
Miami (Florida) Herald—Feb. 24. '27.
This season Miss Stahl is featuring one of the greatest plays of the century: The Enemy, by Channing Pollock. The fact that she has been permitted to use this play by special consent of the author is in itself a splendid tribute to her artistry. Other popular successes in her unusual repertoire include: The Fool; Six Cylinder Love; Abraham Lincoln; Happiness; The Servant in the House; Strongheart; Madam Butterfly and The Dawn of a Tomorrow.
