Eddie Leonard

The hit of the performance came with the advent of Eddie Leonard just before the interval. Leonard held stage for almost half an hour, did two encore number, made a little speech, and still the audience remained seated and asked for more. Finally “Roly Boly Eyes,” as a third encore, let the minstrel favorite get away. That dancing boy Stewart and Leonard has in his act and the showmanship which the star displays in presenting him is going to make vaudeville audiences sit up and take notice. The young man is a phenom as a stepper, and the routines that he showed won the house for him.
