ANOTHER 'revue in miniature' from Rex
Evans and Rowland Leigh. Rex Evans has the intimate art of cabaret at his fingers' tips. The famous syncopated singer is shortly to make his first appearance in revue when Chariot's Show of 1928, as I believe it is to be called, comes to the Vaudeville Theatre. Rex Evans has been associated with Andre Chariot in many of his weekly broadcasts. Be sure to listen tonight. In Rowland Leigh we have one of the cleverest writers of smart lyrics-and Rex Evans and Co. certainly know how to ' put them across.'

in ' The Gypsy Princess '
A broadcasting version founded upon the English stage version by Arthur Miller
Lyrics by Arthur Stanley
Music by Emmerich Kalman
The story of Emmerich Kalman's Gypsy Princess concerns Sylva, a cabaret star, and Maria Eisner, who made such a successful debut in The Countess Maritza last November (in spite of the fact that she was suffering from influenza and had to sustain this exacting rôle with a temperature of 101), is coming over to England to play the lead in this revival.
Maria Elsner was for three years at the Dresden Opera House under Fritz Busch ; played the lead in Rheinhardt's production of The Student Prince in Berlin and in Fledermaus in Paris under Bruno Walter, and she has sung in Figaro at the Salzburg Festival. Since her last visit to England she has been playing in operetta at The Hague.
' The Gypsy Princess ' will be repeated in the Regional programme 'tomorrow at 9.0
