An Accidental "Hit" in a Sapho
The Omnipresent Cake Walk Is
The man who carries off the honors of
"The Burgomaster" does not have his
name in the printed cast on the pro
gramme. He is not an actor. He is a
performer, though, and performed last
night at the Crawford on the piano,
leading the orchestra. He is the corn
poster of the music, Gustav Luders. His
work enjoys the distinction of at once
meeting with popular favor, pe has cer
tainly outdistanced all other composers
in their output for the year. He is as
sisted by Frank Pixley, who wrote the
words to the songs.
When the audience left the theater last
night all who could whistle, and some
who couldn't, were whistling "The Tale
of the Kangaroo," the song hit of the
piece. Up and down Kansas avenue, on
the side streets, in the street cars and
restauiants could be heard the tune,
and even after you went to bed there
was a chance that some belated ganiery
god" might be trudging home a little
later than the parquet people, and he too
would be whistling the tune. Even a
bus driver who did not see the comedy
heard the peanut boy, who ran out be
tween acts to restock his basket, whist
ling about the kangaroo and the driver
took it up. He traveled north and be
fore the performance was finished he
had spread it through Smoky Row,
across the river and to North Topeka.
The policemen were whistling it, the
watchman at the railroad crossing
waved his flag keeping time as he
whistled "I worked tonight for you." A
moterneer heard it and whistled it into
South Topeka. And so it traveled. By
this morning everybody in Topeka who
could pucker his lips properly was
whistling "The Tale of the Kangaroo'
on his way down town. There are other
sones which are popular also. 1 JJrmk
from my Heart to You," "One of the
Working Girls," "The Liberty Girl," and
"The Gripman," which has been, pirated
by dozens of companies.
"The Burgomaster" is a freak. It is
called "an original musical comedy." It
is certainly original and also funny.
There is a prologue and two acts. The
prologue is like a comic opera. The two
acts are like nothing ever heard of be
fore. The prologue represents New Am
sterdam at the time when the Dutch
flag waved over the port. The two acts
represent New York and Chicago of to
day, very much up to date. Harry Dav
enport is "Peter Stuyvesant, burgo
master of New Amsterdam," the lead
ing part. Davenport is supposed to be
funny. He is as much as the part will
allow, but the character admits of very
little save a few puns. William Norris
played the part during the Chicago en
gagement and Davenport is far better
than Norris, although his songs suffered
last night on account of his cold.
Knox Wilson as "Doodles" makes the
hit of the piece in his specialty. He got
music out of an accordeon while he
writhed all over the stage. He was call
ed back several times after his saxa
phone solo.
William Riley Hatch, whose home is
Wichita, and Laura Joyce Bell, bur
lesqued "Sapho" in a way that brought
the longest laughs of the evening. Hatch
as "Jean" made Miss Bell as "Fanny"
read the letters which revealed her
"past." "Sapho's" hair was of the red
known only in hair and the aurora
borealis. She was bediamoned from her
waist up. Her dress of wine colored
silk was strangely and wonderfully
puffed and flounced. "Jean" wore a
short waist and knickerbockers. He
forced "Fanny" to read. The first letter
she read was as follows:
"Miss Fanny Le Grand.
"I must request you to secure other
apartments as this hotel is equipped
with automatic fire sprinklers in the at
tic and every time you rehearse your
part the hotel is flooded.
"Of the Throop Hotel."
"R-r-r-r-r-ead the next," commanded
Jean in a very melodramatic manner.
"Oh, Jack, I mean Jean, please spare
me." wailed "Sapho."
"N-n-n-n-ever, r-r-r-r-read."
She read. ' I
"Miss Fanny LeGrand.
"Dear Madam: I will furnish you
a closed carriage to ride to and from the
theater as some nervous Jdiot always
sees your hair and turns in a fire alarm.
"Fire Marshal."
"Jean, must I read any mere?" weep
er! Fanny.
"Yes! R-r-r-r-ead."
"Miss Fanny LeGrand.
"I understand your performance of
"Sapho" is not fit for decent people to
see. Please reserve me a box for Friday
night. C. J. DREW, Mayor."
Then "Jean" said he would carry
"Sapho" up stairs. She made a flying
leap into his arms. A man appeared at
the side of the stage and held a step
ladder for "Jean" to climb and the
lights went out for the change of scene.
The musical attraction has not been
here this season that did not have a
cake walk. In "The Ameer" it has been
stepped in Afghanistan. In "A Black
Sheep" it was walked in Arizona. In
"A Runaway Girl" it was done in Cor
sica and Venice and in "The Burgomas
ter" a cake walk step was done by the
Indians in New Amsterdam 200 years
ago. Richard Mansfield as "Henry VIII"
may yet have to come to it. Perhaps
"Sherlock Holmes" will try it. Who
knows? But the cake walk in "The
Burgomaster" was good.
The costumes were very good. Little
special scenery was used. The names of
79 people appeared on the programme
while the company only carries 48. That
number was sufficient. The stage would
not be large enough for many more. The
production of "The Bugomaster" here
was better than in Chicago at the Dear
born theater last spring. The perform
ance "went" better and several changes
have been made which improves . the
