The Manhattan Trio

11 Mins.; One. The Manhattan Trio appear in opera cloaks or capes and carrying canes. Afterward they wear simple evening dress. It is some appearance when these three boys, graded in size (although their evening dress coats are all of the same length) strut upon the stage, and start to sing. They have a mixed selection of songs, doing their best with “Hats Off to You, Mr. Wilson.”  This put them over in an early spot. It’s hard to forget that the trio looked quite nifty with the capes and canes (almost English), and a kindly motive prompts the suggestion that they permit the capes and canes to become a part of the entire turn, not removing them while on the stage.
