"London ABBuranoe," "The Soudan," 'Masks and PaoBB," Joseph Jofforson'b name is always a magnet. W. J. Florence, now associated with the distinguished comedian, is also one of the most popular of actors. Last year they were soon in "The Kivals." Tomorrow night, rotiimins; to the Park, they will offer an elahorate production of "The Heir at Law." The company, especially enpragod lor this and companion works in the old comedy field,'commends itself. The cast for the Colman play includes Mme. Ponisl, F. C. Bangs, Viola Allen, Frederick Paulding, Elsie Lombard and Fred G. Ross. Mr. Jefferson is to sot forth Dr. Pangloss, D. D. and A. S. S., while Mr. Florence will take tlie strong role of Zoldol Homespun. In Now York the engagement of these artists was wonderfully profitable. Their visit at the Park is likely to be signalized by very large and brilliant attendance. r NEW PLAYS jSHnO OLD. ShleW'-Thrae Museum-"The Vokes in "The Silver Famous Plays at the Soudan." The change of biU at the Tremont will present Miss Bosina Vokes in a comparative novelty of entertainment as to form and a certain novelty as to play. For the time being the unique class of programmes with which this peerless comedienne delights her audiences, will be lain as de, and a three-act comedy with Miss Vo cea in a role occupying in its development, the entire evening will bo taken up. It will be bs great a pleasure to see the distinsniishod artist in a sustained assumption of more than common range of requirements, as it has been to see her in a number of different oliaracters. Sidney Grundy's comedy, "The Silver Shield," is to be presented for the first times here. The story of the pJay is founded on the fable of the two contondinp knights, who have seen each but one side of the sliiold and disputing to the death, each was right and each wrong. The fable's moral is applied to the lives of two married couples, and the denouement is made much happier than in tlie fable's cose. The play, it is promised^will be beautifully sot There are said to be remarkably good � parts for Messrs. Felix Morris and Ferdinand Gottschalk, played In England by Ai'thur Roberts and Charles Groves; for Courtenay Tliorpo, and the part played in England by Miss Kate Borke, that charming English ingenues, will be played by pretty Emily Banckci'. Miss Vokes part was played by Amy Roselle, and is pronounced a character of mixed brightness and sentiment, which Miss Vokes is so well able to portray. Miss Eleanor Lane, Mr. Grant Stewart and Mr. Charles J. Bell are also credited with having good opportunities. At the Boston Museum, where the old comedies have found even warmer woloome than usual, and where'these standard plays have certainly enjoyed most creditable representation, two notable dramas will divide thofjn'eek. "London ABSurano0.'V'iS;-to be acted until Thursday. Beg.ardiiig Mr.Oharles Barron's iKerspnation of. iSiRi Haroourt; ?otiTtly, nowi'to the stage, there is :Wuoh-pleasant anticipation Mt. � Plyinpton's ap-' pearance as Dazzle will be an interesting featiu-d of the production, in which Miss Clarke will be seen in her fine portrayal of Lady Gay, Miss Sheridan re-appearing after her brief illness as Grace Harkaway, Mr. Boniface playing Hakaway,Mr.Wilson, Meddle ; Mr. .Oavenport.Oharles Ooiu-tly, and Mr. Booth as Dolly Spanker. This is indeed a felicitous assignment of characters in the Boiicicault play. For the presentation of "Masks and Faces" on Thursday, to run three performances, a cast of iiotablo interest is promised. Mr. Wilson's Triplet. Mr, Plympton's Pomander, Mr. Davenport's Ernest Vane, Miss Clarke's Peg WofliDgton and Miss Sheridan's Mabel Vane are to be awaited with pleasure, one and all. Saturday evening is to bo devoted to a repetition of "The School for Scandal," for whioh there has been a special demand. This is the third week of the old comedies at the "historic house." It should prove brilliant in every way. Other attractions may come and go, but no combination of stars seems able to swerve the public of Boston and New England from "The Soud.an." It will not bo -ong before 100 nights will bo set down to tho credit of the great scenic and romantic play, yet there is still the Ijareliest of de-maud at the box ofiice of theT3oston Theatre. Of course no one who comes to town thinks of going aw!iy without seeing tho stirring "Soudan." DKOLLBEY EXEMPLIPrBD, Hollon and Hart's ''.Later On"-The Wight Owls' Reign-Specialty Magnets.

Mrs. Leslie Carter's instantaneous success in New York seems to show that the stage has really gained a valuable acquisition m tho new comer, whose work proved a most agreeable disappointment.
