Tony Pastor's Opera House
Variety / Vaudeville
28 June 2020
Mostly about the things Harry Gurr can do underwater.
“…McAndrews had to do double duty the past week, owing to the sickness of Frank Kearns, who was unable to appear until New Year’s Day. Ada Wray, who has made quite a hit at the East side by her singing, was the recipient of three encores for her ‘Tit, Tat, Toe.’ She is prepossessing in appearance, sings well, dresses very tastefully, and has a style just suited for the variety business. Connor and Bradley did a number of songs and dances well, and Alice Somers has improved considerably in clog dancing. C. E. Collins sang Taylor’s character song of ‘Simple Simon,’ but it was a poor imitation. His old men songs, however, are very good. Harry Gurr did his aquatic feats every night, and Nelse Seymour is one of the principal attractions. Tony Pastor gives a budget of comic sons every night, and receives from four to five encores.”
