AT THE ELMORE Connie's Inn Review appears this week at the Elmore and contains an added interest over its presenta tion at the same theater several I months ago. Interest is maintained in this show principally through the steady now of fun provided by Em met Anthony, the comedian. Mak ing his first appearance, in . the early stages of the show, he is the center of the plot about which ' the play is built. He reaches his most applauded performance in the final scene with i?am uross, who plays the part of the devil. . The show opens with a first class looking chorus, and before the curtain goes down on the first act, we are introduced to a situation in 1 which, a booking company is seeking performers for a review, the name of the Teview being Connie's Inn Re view. The two comedians constitute the booking agency. Before them ' come various candidates for the review, each of whom display their wares before the agency con ductors. This gives opportunity for the different stars to make a very clever presentation of their parts. The . singing in this scene where the two singers offer a demonstra tion of their talent, is exceptionally good, especially that of Emmet - An thony, who draws a great deal of ap plause. Alta Oates. blues sinsrer. Baby Lee, a soubrette, and Jennie Dancy, another blues singer, perform cred itable parts at various stages in the course of the play. Especial comment of the good - ap pearance of the chorus is needed. Nudity still held its sway through out the various acts, but the chorus acted - well, and looked good. x ne snow is under the manage ment ot John uancy. LARGE, PA.
