D'Oyly Carte Opera Company Presents Favorites From Gilbert and Sullivan

If one eliminates the rope-jumping antics of one Jack Sharkey, "logical contender for the heavyweight championship of the world", the bill at the Keith Memorial Theatre this week is found to be above the average presentation of vaudeville houses.

The most unusual, and best received act on the bill is a one act playlet "The Undercurrent" which is admirably performed. Listed with this rather tense drama is a mixed group of performers, chief among them being Bob Hall who amuses with his extemporaneous songs, in which he takes the bald gentleman on our right and the fat lady in front for his subjects. The Lester and Irving trio produce one of the cleverest acts on the program with unusually difficult athletic stunts. Tony and Norman put on a bit of fast repartee, while Bobby Watson and Mary Lawlor, two former musical comedy stars also have an interesting song and dance.

The picture, "Children of the Ritz", unfortunately is the real weakness of the bill although Dorothy Mackaill and Jack Mulhall do some good acting in spots. Oh yes,--for those who attend this theatre regularly, the phantom organ is no longer a mystery. Mr. Weidner kindly tells us all about it this week. That alone is worth the price of the show.
