STAR Bohemian Durlcsqucis. Afternoon ami
Mantell as "Hamlet.'
Kobcrt )). Mantell and his company ttaia a
fairly good picacnlatlon of "Hamlet" ut the
Lccum last night befoic a large fired audience.
Mr. Mantel! vveora a sombre cloak with a much
effectiveness ns any actor In tho country. Ho Is
n prince of gloomy fellows and has im.uiably
appcucd licio ill sepulclual plays, fieightcd with
"windy suspimtlon of fenced breath," as wit
ness "The face in the Moonlight." "The Cor-tic-m
Brotheis," "MonbjrV and "Tho Dagger
and the Cross." It is natural, theicfore. Hut
the tiend of Mr. Mantell',, histrionic- nrcior
cuees should have ultlmitoly lindcd him in tho
lolu of "Hamlet," which lie as-uints veiy ired
itubly. Those inclined to anal re the "Hamlet" of
Mantell might declaic his "Melancholy Pane" to
be altogether too healthy a pcisonagc. He is not
that "exquisitely fragile vase," which Hamlet
is to often Illumed to. into which has Ken
diopped the acorn of a, mighty purpose. Mantell
is a. more robust piece of pottery and his ilch
poweiful voice and muscular build dispel any
fear tliat he Mill "run away into a dew."
His acting of the part, however, was easy aid
graceful and lie handled the stately phrases with
a Judicloibnc-ji that was nt times eloquent as
well as impressive. Mr. Mantell attempts no
innovations with Ms "Hunlet," unless the as
sumlng of a daik red wig be called suth, but
Keeps upon the beiten path m.uked out by tho
majority of those who hate preceded him.
An Inversion of the phrase "Hamlet, vitli
Hamlet lelt out" might descnbe the rest of the
production. Mr. Mantell was nearly the whole
play. There was no t-iicci.il elaboration of seen,
cry and the suppoiting talent was quite oidi
niiy. Miss Marie Booth Hits-ell was cast as Ophelli
and made a good eflort In that lole considering
that the is iinsullod for it. Mls Russell is a lull
Brown woman, tall and well built as a grenadier.
