Mr. JAMES Agate :
* Sir Johnston Forbes-Robertson and Dame Sybil ThorndLke '
Sir Johnston Forbes-Robertson , in the years between his debut in 1874 and his farewell season at Drury Lane in 1913, won a unique place in the galaxy of the theatre in the age of the actor-manager. By his apprenticeship to Phelps, his association with Irving, his performances in Hamlet, Diplomacy, The Passing of the Third Floor Back, and in countless Shakespearean roles, he consistently represented and enriched a great tradition. He will be heard tonight as Hamlet.
Dame Sybil Thorndike is the star par excellence of the repertory movement. She graduated from the Horniman and Frohman Repertories to the Old Vic, where in the four years of the War she laid the foundations of her vast popularity, to be raised to its greatest height by her performances in Shaw's St. Joan in 1924. She is Lady Macbeth tonight, a part in which she scored a great success at the Prince's Theatre in 1926.
