Equestrienne act. She has two excellent horses and is dashing bareback rider quite superior to any of the equestrienne acts played here. Was the hit of the bill. 9 mins. F.S.
In “Old Curiosity Shop”. They have played this act several time and while it is nothing more than a lot of junk it seems to amuse the audience. 16 mins. F.S.
Vocalist. Miss Carson is about 17 years of age has excellent voice of high range and exceeding sweetness. She was not as happy in her selections of songs as her last appearance here. 7 mins. in one.
Presenting “The Cowboy and the Herd”. He was assisted by Mr. Frank Beamish and Henrietta Browne, two excellent players. While there is nothing starting in the sketch the presence of Mr. Douglas and Mr. Beamish drew quite a crowd to the Theatre as they are well known in Detroit. 24 mins. F.S.
Joe, Kyra & Buster. This act went much better this week than on the occasion of its last presentation here. Buster appears to be growing stronger all the time. The act was the laughing hit of the bill. 12 mins. F.S. in one.
In a comedy character sketch entitled “Mrs. Hulla-Ballou and a Friend or Two”. This act is the hit of the show this week and the kind of an act that Cleveland Audiences like. It is a good act in every sense of the word. She impersonates three characters “A Club Woman”, A Reformer, and a soulful maiden, also sings a few songs. Everything she does goes well. 15 minutes in one.
A series of experiments, with explanatory remarks of Prof. Rugg. The act runs about 25 minutes. It is a novelty and a good addition to vaudeville. There is no doubt but what the public is generally interested in demonstrations of this nature as the newspapers and magazines have been full of matter pertaining to liquid air. This is the first time that Clevelanders have had a chance to find out what it is. I believe it would be a good card any place if properly advertised.
In a comedy sketch entitled “Am I Your Wife?” This act has no doubt played the Circuit a good many times, however, it is only the second time for it in Cleveland. It is a good act and gives splendid satisfaction. 20 minutes, full stage.
In his impersonations of composers, past and present. I don’t know whether this is a good act or not as I am not familiar with the people he impersonates. The audience, however, seems to like the act. It runs about 12 minutes, all in one.
2 shows, 12 min. full stage. Because of the nationality of these men this is a most interesting feature at this time, and there is no possibility of doubt that even at this “off” season of the year it will draw business. The drilling is almost as good as that of the Zouave organizations we have and in the past, and the wall scaling at the finish just as exciting. If one wanted to be critical it would be with the lack of unison in keeping the weapons carried in any one directions, but I do not imagine that the audience noticed this at all. They got a big reception when they came on, proving conclusively which the popular sentiment is with, so far as the patrons of this house are concerned, at least. It would be a good act at any time, but is particularly so now, as I have said, and could be played anywhere.
