Mr. Kelly is giving here his famous impersonation of “The Virginia Judge.” This is Mr. Kelly’s first appearance in Trenton in five years. He seems to have lost none of his old-time popularity. His act at the matinee today was positively the hit of the bill.
Singers, dancers and musicians in “full stage.” Could close in “one” if necessary. A novelty in the line of musical turns and went well.
Singing comedienne in “one.” Miss Nichols has one of the best collections of songs I have heard in some time. Closed the first of the bill in good shape.
Dramatic sketch, entitled “Chums.” I do not think the audience cared very much for this act, judging from the applause accorded them at finish. The story is a little rough and seems to be very much disconnected.
Musical act in “one.” This act starts the show going in mighty good shape. The act is a novelty one and could fill a spot on any bill.
Rough comedy acrobatic act. Works in full stage. This is, positively the roughest act I have ever seen. If it was not for their comedy it would be almost uncanny.
11 minutes. F.s. Palace. A rattling good comedy trampoline act that could close any bill.
22 minutes f.s. music room, with short close in one. as far as Boston is concerned, Miss Ritchie hasn’t got a great deal left except her name, which undoubtedly drew business. For a singing act she held this spot in very good shape.
In a sketch called “Back Pension.” 20 minutes f.s. Ktichen. This is a very good sketch as it goes, and Mr. Wilson is a really great character actor. His sketch has a lot of patriotic, hoorah stuff, which usually does not make much of an appeal to our audiences. In fact, the piece itself is rather talky. But it held the interest, however, and closed rather strong. Mr Wilson got a big reception upon his entrance.
14 minutes in one. Olio. Two English Johnnies, and mighty good ones. They have good songs, good comedy, and some great eccentric dancing.
