Ed A. Goewey said this in tho Kansas City
Post: "Louisiana Lou takes the money."
"Perhaps there aro a few peoplo in Kansas
City who haven't heard of "Lousiana Lou," the
pretty, tuneful and really funny musical-comedy
that ran for nearly one solid year in Chicago, but
when the first local performance at tho Willis
Wood last night thero was no ocular evidenco ,
that there Are any such. The big playhouse was
filled from pit to domo, and even the boxes wero
crowded to the rails. It was the biggest Sunday
night theater audience seen here in n very long
time, and that everybody was more than satisfied
with the entertainment was attested by tho gon
erous and spontaneous applause that kept the
play running' for practically three hours. It was
such n great big joyous occasion that actors and
onlookers entered into the spirit of the thing,
and the performers only laughed happily as they
responded to five and six oncores instead of the
usual one or two.
"It has been said and of t repeated that few
good things come out of Chicago, and that tho
sooner they coma the better they aro 'Louisiana
Lou' proves tho exception to the rule. It was
written and produced in Chicago and, the persist
ent clink of coin at tho box office window kept it
playing at tho La Sallo 'for 350 consecutive
performances. 'Louisiana Lou,' viewed from
nearly every angle of theatrjeatariticism, t)fln
either tho over-touted 'Madame Sherry' or 'A"
Modern Eve.' Its music is so good, particularly
the lyrics, thnt one doubts if they really come

"In Louisiana Lou" ho playa the same part of
tho fond-hearted old hobrew making wedding

pans laid out by Cupid. "Louisiana Lou," in
brief, 1b that litt'e vaudevillo gem set in a circle
of dancing chorus girls, now jokes nnd joy-ridp
"Liobert, who is tho irjnrticular star of
Louisiana Lou" is experience, a romarkable
theatrical cuccest. The lovable old mnn who
