"Three Twins" which comes to
the Lyric Theatre during Old Home
Week, Wednesday evening, Sept.
8th, is positively one of the best
musical comedies that has ever
been produced. It ran for ten
months at the Herald Square Thea
tre In New York.
"Three Twins" Is a musical
comedy with a plot and many novel
features. The music titillates and
tantalizes, and the witty lines and
adept clowning excites one to
laughter. Mr. Jos. M. Gaites has
so lavishly costumed the beautiful
show girls that they are pleasing
to the eye. In the second act there
are eight of the handsomest Paris
ian Dlrectolre gowns worn by beau
tiful and shapely girls. The elec
trical effects are marvelous, the
faceograph being a distinct novelty,
the electrical aerial swing being an
amazon structure of steel, illumi
nated with over 1,000 electric
L lights revolving at a rapid rate
with six girls In the baskets sing
