“Wood’s Minstrels hold the Broadway line all to themselves, now that the Bryants have gone on a raid. . . . The troupe are giving a very amusing entertainment, replete with fun, sentiment, and gems of minstrelsy.  The company is well organized and combines some very clever vocal as well as instrumental performers.”
