The Company, urged on by the Comedian, give cause for a severe reprimand from the Revue Director, but the Comedian has the last word in "Any Old Night." Next we find the Juvenile Lead is lost, and our Soprano finds him eventually and says " I'll Tell the World," after which, they both steal softly away. Our Character Lady is next accosted by the Comedian, and she goes off into fits of unseemly laughter ; the reason for this is explained by the Comedian in " Oxford Trousers." We then overhear something about the past of our Comedienne and Juvenile, Lead in " When You and I Were Seventeen. and this scene is brought to a close with an altercation between the Revue Director and Comedian.
Interlude : " Oh. Flo ! "
This opens tearfully, but our Juvenile
Lead, whose motto is " Ready, Aye, Ready," gives good advice in " Smile Through Your Tears," which is accepted by our Comedienne, and they both disappear for a quiet smoke ; after which our Soubrette and her friends tell us that her " Sister Hasn't Got a Chance."
The quiet smoke ended, the Juvenile Lead returns, and in soliloquy sings " I Never Knew How Much I Loved You. " This is followed by " Proposing," and the Company conclude the scene with " Way Down Home."
Interlude : " Tell-Tale Eyes."
The Comedian is again found accosting strangers, and this time the Soubrette and he discuss " Gardens," which is appropriately followed by our Soprano's invitation to " Come 'Along with Me to Flowerland " ; everyone having accepted the invitation, we find our Comedienne chatting pleasantly with " Farmer Jack of Devonshire." Next we are introduced to a domestic episode in " Cross-Word Puzzles," and to bring this scene to a fitting close we give a little exhibition of "Acting."
Interlude : "A Windy Day in March."-
Opens with the Comedian again accosting someone. Thistime it is the Revut Director, and they both join in giving " Some Duet," which is rudely interrupted by the arrival of a person referred to by the Comedian as " The Sheik." This latter gentleman, assisted by his Staff, sings of his "Oriental Love Dreams," and then passes on. The Comedian next accuses the Soubrette of being a vamp, but she explains what a real vamp is like in " Sob Sister Sadie." The finale of this scene takes the form of an introduction to our " Tourist Agency."
Interlude : " Did Tosti Raise His Bowler
Hat ? "
