A New Edwardes’ Musical Play, “Betty”

We are accustomed to get most of our theatrical productions here with the London hall-mark upon them, but as he did in the case of “The Dollar Princess,” so Mr George Edwardes’ has done with his new musical play ”Betty.” He has sought first the verdict of Manchester, and “Betty” will be played in other cities before she goes to the Metropolis. The play comes to the Lyceum Theatre on Monday to begin a fortnight’s run. It has had a splendid send off in Manchester, where it has been performed before large audiences right on from Christmas till now.

“Betty” has a romantic plot; its music is said to be almost operatic in quality – and it is all British – while the staging is on a magnificent scale. The cast is a first-rate one and includes many excellent artists like Miss Winifred Barnes, Miss Daisy Burrell, Miss Avice Kelham, and the inimitably droll comedian, Mr G. P. Huntley.
