I WHEN George Sidney comes to
the Grand on Thursday of this
week he will present his mirth
compelling musical show "llusy Izzy."
He will be seen In the character of Izzy
Mark, a part which he created some

ever since. During this time he pre;
sented a number of musical comedies
I but In each Izzy was the chief charac-,
j ter. Mr. Sidney has studied to present >
. the Jew as he really Is and at no time
: does he resort to caricature. "Busy
Izzy" comes back re-embellished in
[" form and with new songs, musical and
specialties, which makes all but iln
. chief character practically a new play.
The star Is surrounded by a fine com'j
pany of singers and comudiens. Car'
rie Webber, the popular singing comedienne,
is In herself a big attraction
and as a star has won in a measure as
much fame for herself us has her coi
worker, Mr. Sidney.
Manager McCoy has been questioned
: whether George Sidney himself would
really appear here, someone seeming'
ly having gained an impression that
on account of the bigness of the at"
traction there was a probability that
a number two company would present
; the play. Mr. McCoy explained to us
that such practices would never occur j
f under his management and then started
to amaze us by displaying the con-;
^ tract in which he guarantees a big sum
I to Mr. Sidney, a sum equal to that de
mantled from the largest houses in the
large cities. In doing so McCoy exhib-'
ited the sort oC grit that Is a forerun
ner of success. He has faith in his |
public and rather tersely remarked:
"All I need to do is produce the goods."
