Entertainment can grow as dull as anything else, and we thought that here and there the Theatre was showing signs of growing dull. SO we set to work.
The drawings, models, plans, masks, and marionettes shown here are part of the results of our labour.
Out of about 900 pieces exhibited here, at least two-thirds have been carried out in large on the stages in America, Austria, Belgium, England, France, Germany, Holland, Italy, Poland, Russia and Switzerland. In most of these lands the play-writer and the actor have welcomed our ideas for it is ideas which we have brought to the Theatres, not merely sceneries and pictures.
A new way of looking at an old thing - this was our principal idea, and this idea has freshened up that part of entertain ment which was growing dull.
