Lizzie Evans is one of the most
charming soubrettes on the stage, with
sweet face, graceful figure and musical
voice, she has no difficulty in winning
the hearts of her audiences. She
dances eiver the stage with the airiness
of a thistleblow, and beams on her au
ditors like a stream of sunshine, more
attractive than Lotta in her youthful
ness and physique. She is more charm
ing in manners, owing to an innate
refinement that is apparant to even
the least observant. Her company is
an excellent one; she has a good sup
port in Mr. Corey, who has a fine voice
and good presence and is withal a hand
some young fellow. The pretty little
