A fertile comedy field has been pro
vided for "Furs and Frills," which
comes to the Keith theatro next Mon
day with Richard Carlo ns tho
comcdlan-star and a supporting cast
of tho best musical comedy talent. The
plot Is built around a valuable Rus
sian sable coat, which has many
amusing adventures. Mr. Carlo is at
his best in this new vehicle of his.
"Furs and Frills" has already had a
New York hearing and In that hard to
please city tho critics and public was
more than flattering in their praise of
both play and star.
