BROOKLYN LIFE 11 danced most entrancingly and with a spirit that charmed everyone. Of the principals, all were so very good it is hard to make special mention of any one in particular. "Wally" Smith as Lee Scuppers was, of course, inimitable, while W. R. Brenton as Lord Ascot and Bobbie Blue as an American insurance agent, gave character studies that provoked great applause. As for Carita, played by J. B. Darby, her dancing was a delight, while R. M. Crawford as Sir Francis sang and acted as one would expect from an artist whose skill and taste were responsible for the-very the-very beautiful orchestration orchestration of the whole piece, and many of the principal songs. Two features stood out pre-eminently: pre-eminently: pre-eminently: the clear enunciation, both in speaking and singing, and the admirable admirable restraint shown by the orchestra, which seemed to be at all times more intent on accompanying the princi- princi- -pals, -pals, than on drowning them out Both these features are commended to our producers of musical comedy. Just one thing more : Throughout there was not a single reference to prohibition, to divorce or to mothers-in-law. mothers-in-law. mothers-in-law. mothers-in-law. mothers-in-law. Can you conceive it, in a comic opera? For this alone, thanks are due to the authors and producers of this extremely pleasing evening's entertainment.
