Joan Sawyer

Modern dances and wardrobe changes throughout act.
Accompanying orchestra.
Joan Sawyer, "the peerless queen of the modern dance," is now assisted by George Harcourt. They not do four dances instead of three and one less "selection" by their colored orchestra, for which thanks. The routine has been quickened and there are additional steps and kicks which makes for ginger. But that colored orchestra has a fine time - with a concertina solo by one to piano accompaniment (and the concertina out of tune with the piano), another banjo swinging solo and later a drum solo. Why the changes of gowns for Miss Sawyer? Folks want to see dancing, not frocks.
