Eve Williams and Jack Tucker

On at 3.42, 25 min, full stage.  Presenting “Skinny’s Finish”, for the first time in three years at this house.  Did not come up to our expectations this afternoon, for we hoped that it had been so long since they had played the original sketch here that it would seem like a new offering, but it fell rather flat, so much that we felt obliged to move it up several numbers on the bill tonight.  Miss Williams is undeniably clever, but she needed a new vehicle in which she can be made the whole thing, for Tucker is by no means entitled to the same prominence that she is.  It would help this sketch if his song and imitations were omitted.
