AT THE THEATRE.
There was an innovation at tho Lansing theatre Monday evening
two separate companies, according to tho advertisements, presenting
two separate plays. The innovation wasn't popular with the
audience and the management will doubtless regard novelties of this
sort with suspicion hereafter. "A Chip O" tho Old Block" and "A
Cold Day' are the kind of farce comedies that used to obtain about
ten years ago. They are shabby affairs, flat and vapid, and tho
"talent" is in a state of much emphasized undevelopment.
In "Chip O" tho Old Block" there is a girl with flaxen hair and
highly colored hose who is down on the program as Pixey, "Madge's
Fairy, light and airy." Her name is given as Miss Adilia Crawford.
Miss Crawford talks through her nose. Why is it that some many
of the lesser soubrettes talk through their nose?
The nasal tones of theso charmers are something
dreadful. In the ordinary walks of life wo do not meet girls with
blue eyes and golden hair who talk through their caudal appen
dages, and it is not easy to understand how so many of theso nasal
feminines get onto the stage.
Last evening tho Dewey Hey wood company gave a concert at tho
Funke. The Coukiek went to press too early to admit of a detailed
notice of this entertainment.
