Miniature Comedy at Kcith'6
Ladles and gentlemen 1 Lot us present to
you tho established favorltes-tho titled ad
venturer, the winsome American heiress, tho
rugged boy from the West Jilted for the baron,
the Spanish Carmen Jilted by tho baron and
carrying a dagger and red rose.' You know
them nil, and like them all, but they have
novei appeared In rt more charming setting
than in U. A. Rolfe's mlnlaturo musical com
edy, "The Bride Shop." which opened yester
day ut B. F. Keiths Theatre. 'Pll known as
our friends may be, they are precipitated Into
complications nil the more original nnd exclt
lug for their swiftness and brevity. The dim
Inutlve drama transpires In a lingerie shop,
whero a bovy of fair maids appear, each exhib
iting parts of tho sheer lacy and tantallzlngly
tempting trousseau of the bride. To tho satis
faction of all concerned, the adventurer is un
masked and true lovo finds its own Andrew
Tombes, ns Billy Copo. rejected by the heiress
for tho baron, is n comedlnu whoso drollery
will make you forget tho Increasing cost of
living. His .song exposition of life in Spain,
where your sweetheart appears at a casement
while you make love from tho basement, should
compose you to vvhatovcr may be your local
romantic lot. -The Two Hollanders." Chretl
enno and Loulsette. are remarkable in their
Impersonations of various notional dances and
songs. A good, thoroughly satisfactory variety
of entertainment, with Julia Curtis Imitating
a violin, and various comedy stars ns animals
with her voice; the Lelghtons dolm.- W.i,oii 1-
ragtlme, and Blossom S.-eley ragging It in
amusing, if sometimes rasping, songs.
Mooro and Elliott, in "A Matrimonial Substi
tute. ' head tho bill nt Loew-s new, pretty and
commodious Knickerbocker Theatre for the next
three days. Their act moro than makes good
tho management's promise of a policy to glva
tho vaudeville public an amusing and snappy
program. The snap nnd the fun are right
thoro In this akotch. A faint-hearted brlde-groom-to.bo
loses his nervo just beforo the
ceremony. So ho sends tho lady of his choice
a few lines to the general effect that he thinks
she'd make .1 mistake to many him as he
doesn't quite till the specifications of a hus
band for such as she, but that he's sending n
Mend who will. At this fateful moment a
gontloman whose real Job Is selling baby grand
Pianos arrives Bef0,e he quite knows how
It all happens ho has a now Job-that of hus
band for tho Jilted lady. Hn must land that
piano sale anyway. So he takes the chance
as would almost any man with es In hie
head, when the lady Jilted happens to bo Flor
ence Elliott Oeorgo Moore, as the piano sales
man, is on tho Job with l.ia usual vim. These
clever nnd popular performers have never had
a better vohlcle, and they make tv.ry line tell.
Uut George, as a salesman, would certainly
havo to hustle to keep up with Florence El
liott's dressmaker's bills.
