She sings both comic and “coon” songs with a humorous impersonation for the close, and a bit of satire annexed.
Miss Mayhew is encountering no trouble whatsoever in pleasing the ddown-town audiences.
“Laugh” fairly exudes from Miss Mayhew's personality. She is no light fragile child, and is well known theatrically. It is a matter of record that she can handle a “coon” number. This week her singing is given at the expense of impersonations, and she might add a few. Thirteen minutes for a comedienne of Miss Mayhew's calibre is far too short a period.
