Five Columbians

This act was somewhat of a disappointment. It may be that from his billing I expected too much. The child (about 7 years old) is the best thing in the act. The doll piano playing was bad, and the two girls who sing, should be doing something else. The Idea of the act is good, but it does not work out well. The work they attempt seems to just fall short of being what it should be. The scenery and costumes are very pretty, but they do not save the act.
