Sam Strudel, the super-shrewd showman with a cloak-and-suit accent, is realistically drawn by Sid Zeldin, and Elizabeth MacLean, apartment house proprietress, indulges in a bus- man's holiday and puts in her over- time collecting rents--as Mrs. Plop. Here, indeed, are the elements for an entertaining evening. Tbe author, James Reach, has deftly blended them into a hilarious script which moves forward swiftly to an entertaining and satisfying climax. Direction is capably handled by Mrs. Gus Wiseman. The performance is given under the auspices of the Mary Williams Club. Tickets at 35c, may be secured at the Card Cove in the Arcade. Corner of Crescent and Sumner Avenues LES BROWN.
