11 Mins.; One. Ferguson and May are an ordinary two-act, relying on the woman’s singing and the man’s playing.
15 Mins.; Full Stage (Special Set.) Mae A. Sullivan started out as a single some time ago when she had secured considerable notoriety in a breach of promise suit against a young millionaire. That Miss Sullivan has taken the stage seriously in shown by a little skit that has three other besides herself, all men. Of the men that one makes the best impersion is a black face comedian, and it is due to him the turn gets what it does. The story is of the soldier’s life. The girl (Mac) is in love with a young lieutenant, but her father will not allow her to marry him until he has done something heroic. With the aid of the blackface the father is told of the exploits of the young man and consents to the marriage. The lover has a little stage ability as possible, but this may be his first attempt. Miss Sullivan’s singing is still in the same class as when she appeared at Hammerstein’s, but she is acting better. The other man fills in. The act has a chance on a small time.
11 Mins.; One. Little Jerry is a dwarf, with very short legs. He sings for sound with a couple of attempts at dancing. The singing is fairly well and with more dancing Little Jerry should get over big on the small time. Some comedy steps would be a help
12 Mins; One. The Tiller Sisters have an opening somewhat different. One does a tough girl, attempting “nut stuff” with some success; the other handling the straight, displaying an agreeable contralto voice. The comedienne, changing to a pink dress, does nicely with a little song. They change to black and white dresses for the finish. A fair “sister act.” They could use new songs.
11 Mins.; Full Stage. Man and woman do a series of caryon sketches, warbling the while. The man’s voice is the more agreeable and the girl’s sketching the more interesting. The Indian heads at the opening are the best subjects of a commonplace collection. The pair class as worthy small timers.
Fencing. They wear costumes designed for the sport.
They offer a Scotch dance, a sword dance, a sailor’s hornpipe and an Irish reel. For each number, the costumes are changed.
