A Study in Black and White

Miss Hull sings her melodies with her old-time skill ad the performance of a quick transition from a “burnt cork” mammy to a society girl in view of the audience was interesting.
In so far as Miss Hull's specialty is concerned, the offering goes with a whoop and demand for more. The main trouble seems to be tat she has made an effort to surround her capabilities as a singer of plantation songs and Southern negro dialect with a sketch structure. This clouds the issue, as it were, and the “company,” one Robert Taylor, does some exceedingly bad acting to further handicap the piece. Taylor is quite impossible in his present part and environment. The role is perhaps a difficult one, but a straight man of some flexibility could do a great deal to enliven it. There are good lines in the sketch, written by Miss Hull, and the laughs were frequent and sincere.
