Next Thursday night at tho Lansing Theatre Klaw
& Krlangor will present "In Gay Now York" tho
third annual roviow from tho Now York Casino.
Tho piece is described as a merry hodge-podge of
fun, travesty, caricture, burlesque and specially and
it has achieved notable success during its tour.
While "In Gay Now York" is ostensibly a Hovie.w
following in this sense tho gimor.il trond of its pro
cursors "I'ho Passing Show" and "Tho Merry
World" it is yet something more: tho ingenious in
troduction by tho author of a pair of contral char
acters. Johnny Brown and Ids bride Sally, both of
Euokloborry Centre, Maine, around whom tho par
ticipants in tho various burlesques travesties and
caricatures are made to revolve, gives to tho piece
enough of incident and story to maiutiiin consecu
tive intei est. In the development of tho story
Johnny Brown and his bride are transected into tho
mad whirl of New York. Tho paiticular "mad
whirl" into which these innocent rurals are thrown
brsngs them into contact with a complete assort
ment of designing characters and as Jolinnv Brown
is known to have a thousand dollars in hard cash
the direction of the designs Is niturnlly towards
Johnny's pockets; bunco steerors, gold brick manip
ulators, bankrupt theatrical managers, gay chorus
girls and others use their wiles to entice the coveted
cash from Johnny's pockets. Incidentally he is in
troduced into a bewildering complexity of scenes
and situations and occasion is made for a trip to
Coney Island in which all the characters participate
Such a lavish display of scenic and costume adorn
ment so vaiied an assortment of entertaining spec
ialties, so general a use of new and attractive mater
ial and so through a tabooing of aU that is old, worn
and mows covered, has seloom characterized any
similar production. The presentation of "In (Jay
New York" requires the services of seventy persons
including a ballet of indued daneuses in pictorial
and illustrate dances designed h.v Sig. Kiancioli; the
imidotital music is in Korker's happiest mood and
furnishes a delightful swi g and r thin that iuvol
untarily givo motion to the feet. Among those who
engage' in the performance, Kddie Foy, Yorko and
AffiiniB, Jeannelte Bageaid, Lee Harrison, Harrv
Watson, tho traim-cyolist, Gertrude Zellor, Ktta
Gilroy, Gibson an' Gregory have special prominence
