The Oayvty has an Interesting- aa well
as attractive offering for the current
week, the combination being "Sliding
Billy" Watson and Ed Lee Wroth, the
Omaha hoy. Fifteen years ago Blckel,
Watson and Wroth- were tickling the
theatergoers of the country with the
musical show, "Me, Him and I. Later
they separated and for years Watson
headod his own burlesque company.
Wroth, too, became a star and made
many friends among burlesque patrons.
Joe Hurtlg succeeded the past summer
In signing tha old team for a season of
work together, and he Is presenting them
In two rejuvenated burlesques that make
strong appeal to their followers. Every
one remembers Watson In the funny
farce laid In the patent office at Wash
ington. With his funny little slides, hit
peculiar whistle and hla knowledge of
comedy stunts, he Is always a sure fire
hit In comedy roes. Ed Lee Wroth Is
the famous "Janitor Hlgglna," a char
acter that stands out in burlesque as one
of the cleverest. "Hlgglna" in hla career
has gone through many experiences, but
none haa been so funny as hla day at
the race track. This Is the best comely
Wroth haa had In years. In the support
ing company are such well known play
ers aa Owen Martin. Ethel Marmo int.
Eatelle Colbert, Haxel Woodbury.
Jack Howard. Mas Ferhman. Al Du
pont and Tommy Brooks. Mr. Ifurtl
haa provided twenty-four girls for chorus
work and has staged the production in
elaborate manner. It Is a moat attractive
offering, and with the two stars at their
beet, Hurtlg, it would seem haa put over
a real winner. This Is "Blhling Billy's
first visit to Omaha In two seasons.
