One of the interesting events of the theatrical year will take place at the Opera House, next Wednesdayj when the peerless Maude Granger ívill be seenin "Inherited," the new play she has recently purchased from VIrs. Lucy Hooper. The coming of . Miss Granger has evidently awakened a. great deal of pleasurable anticipation. So much has been said of her coming, her talent and her beauty, that now when Ann Arbor theatre goers finally have an opportunity to see her they should take advantage of it. A great deal of interest is also feit in Mrs. Lucy Hooper's play. All the literary world knows Lucy Hooperand those who have admired ler brilliant Paris letters in the New York and Philadelphia papers, are anxious to see what she can accomplish as a playwright. It is certain that Mrs. Hooper is a woman of jreat originalityand inventive genius in a literary sense. With the assistance of so adept a collaborator as Richard Davy to arrange the details of stage she should be able to produce a strong dramatic work. Mr. Francisque Sarcey, the most eminent of French critics, has described the play as weirdly powerful and dramatic like a story by Edgar Allen Poe, and with a death scène worthy of Sara Bernhard or Mme. Pierson. The American contemporaries of the Bernhard and Pierson school of emotional artistes are Clara Morris and Maude Granger, but none of them can approach in regal beauty the lustrous-eyed Granger.
