You are brought to earth by the rather rapid change of costume made for each new selection, and on Monday evening there were six, this number being demanded by the audience With the exception of a character dress, Miss Lloyd’s gowns are sweetly simple, enhancing her demure, almost childlike stage presence.
She sings songs. The songs are in English, which alone is an asset, it seems, more valuable than the American product gives, but this young woman plays and acts her lyrics. The melodies take care of themselves.
Her teeth are first noticed, and from then on you forget her personal appearance
Miss Alice opened with “May,” and followed in succession with “Stockings on the Line,” “Who Are You Looking At?” “The Tourist and the Maid,” “Never Introduce Your Bloke to Your Lady Friend” and closed with “That's a Man,” being obliged to extend her repertoire in the evening one beyond those given at the matinee. “Who Are You Looking At?” sealed Miss Lloyd's success. “The Tourist and the Maid” has a somewhat risque last verse. In “Never Introduce Your Bloke to Your Lady Friend” a popular “hit” will be found. The tune is catchy and the same is true of “May.”
would have remained content to listen just so long as the singer would have continued
No more dainty, artistic bit of song acting has been given on the American stage, and there is not an American actress who could not benefit by listening to this number. And Alice Lloyd in a strikingly different style of work will quite likely discover that her name will become as famed over this country as has Vesta Victoria's. Miss Lloyd has established herself. After the first time one doesn't care what she may sing the second. But the art of “delivering a song”! You will never have a full realization of what that means until you have heard Alice Lloyd.
