Martelle, No. 2, seemed to fool the house as a whole with his female impersonation. Martelle is different at least in one respect from the other female impersonators. He retains his falsetto throughout the act, removing his wig as customary at the finish, but refraining from the usual barytone male tones to contrast with falsetto stuff that has gone before. The Martelle act is beautifully costumed, the four numbers landed for fair returns.
