John & Mae Burke

This couple give a very marked illustration of how vaudeville has progressed, and some of the old-timers have been left behind while the procession has gone on. This act is very “burlesquey,” and I would much rather have seen it in the opposition house than on my own stage. 17 minutes opens in one goes to full stage, closes in one.
