"The Sweetest Girl In Paris," Har
ry Askin's premier musical comedy, la
repeating on tour the success that they
have been enjoying In Chicago for the
past six months. In every city where
it has been seen, and It has played
many of the metropolis of the north
west and west,the critical comment
has been flattering In the extreme. The
production with the original cast will
be seen at the Steward Opera House on
Monday evening, Oct. 16, " ; .
Take for Instance the opinion of the
Milwaukee News. "It Isn't often that a
company goes on tour without change.
Shrewd managers have a habit of cut
ting down expenses by cheapening the
production through the lessening of
the cast, but In this instance the man
ager, can, safely, plead, not guilty. The
fun-maker who delighted the people
of Chicago are still doing stunts under
the spot lights a fact which should be
thoroughly appreciated by the play
goers. A full measure of amusement is
served to them by a full balanced, en
ergetic company, which seems to lack
none of the essentials o fsuccess.
