It would have been better to have made the closing in “one” earlier, or have finished with the “broom sliding” exit, a new laughable piece of business, done by Ladell. The singing and acrobatic dancing are very good.
The act as improved wonderfully since appearing at the New York early in the season. The “cremation” joke should be dropped. It is too sombre, and further than that, with humor of this nature, one can never know what memories are brought up to those in front who possibly have come to the theatre to forget sorrows.
