THE ALBERT LUCAS COMPANY.
To-morrow (Saturday) evening the Albert Lucas Company will enter on the eighth week of their very successful career at the City Hall. A scene from ‘Julius Cce?ar’ will be played, during which Mr Lucas will recite Marc Antony a oration over the dead body of the Roman Emperor. The feature of the evening, however, will bo the production of the late Henry J- Byron's comedy ‘Not Such a Fool as he Looks* This famous comedy was originally produced at the Theatre Royal, Manchester, on December 4, 1868, and has held the stage ever since-a sufficient guarantee of its great merit and intrinsic excellence. The late Charles Mathews originally introduced it to'the colonies, and it always proved a strong drawing card in that eminent comedian’s repertoire. The company have devoted a great deal of time and attention to rehear.-als, and the part of Sir Simon Simple should fit Mr Lucas like the proverbial glove.
