Without exaggeration, tho Byrne
bro hers are presenting one of the
very best pantomimic and acrobatic
shows on the road. True, some of
the features are not new. notably
that representing the cabin of the
rolling ship, but the act is smooth,
and yet ao comical that it will bear
repetition on-e a reason. The Byrne
brothers are artists of the tint final
ity. They are aupple and frracefol
acrobats and accomplished panto
mimists. The entertainment is to
be commended for the good taste
which makes every feature of it.
The costumes are appropriate, the
scenery nnique, and the dialogue re
duced to a minimum, though what
there is of it, is always acceptable.
There are no course jokes, sugges
tive allusions or questionable pranks,
such as sometimes spoil acrobatic
performances. The incidental motic
is pretty. The company is thor
oughly adequate. The specialties
are ingenious and amusinir m a H.
