Barrie's Fairyland Fanta«y Peter Pan 19 With BETTY BRONSON ERNEST TORREJNCE VIRGINIA FAIRE ANNA MAY WONG Pantages next WEEK Douglas McLean IN "NEVER SAY DIE" SHEA'S The bill at Shea's next week is headed by George Whiting and Sadie Burt in "Several Songs," and Maude Fealy and Grace Valentine in Angie Breakspeare's comedietta, "Forget-me-Nots" and "Applesauce." George Whiting and Sadie Burt are among the best singers of songs. Their new act is "Several Songs." Maude Fealy and Grace Valentine have been recognized stars for several years. Miss Fealy won her reputation in the classic and modern drama, Miss Valentine in farce. Both have been seen in vaudeville separately, but their joint appearance is somewhat of an event. They have the assistance of Hugh O'Connell. James Watts presents a treat in travesty on classic dancing. Mr. Watts was one of the stars of the Greenwich Village Follies and other Broadway productions. Shura Rulowa, who has a corps de ballet, and Joseph Hahn have gained artistic recognition in America. Miss Rulowa, assisted by a quartette of girls and a man, presents the characteristic group of solo dances of Russia including the pirouette. Florence Seely and Co. are seen in a novel dancing act called "Kat Knaps." Will J. Ward calls his act "Songs and Stories." Marcheta, an Igorotte girl from the Philippines, is an unusual violinist. The Tom Davies Trio, who motor in a slatted saucer that is bottomless, develop so much speed that the centrifugal force keeps them from falling. An Aesop's Fable completes the bill. EMPIRE Clark & McCullough have given "Monkey Shines," their popular new revue coming to the Empire Theatre New Year's week, a genuine Broadway touch. This entertaining burlesque is said to rival in more points than one some of the nationally famous musical productions bearing the O.K. of the Great White Way. In the first place, they have departed from the usual one car show, requiring as they do, two seventy-foot baggage cars to transport the vast volume of scenery and effects used in the production. And they have costumed it in a manner that bars all criticism, there being an array of exquisite gowns seldom seen in productions whose admission price is less than three dollars. As to chorus, the producers of this show have also sought the Broadway type, the personnel being far above the average usually attracted to a strenuous road tour, George Shelton, Al Tyler and Wally Sharpies are featured comedians.
