The Augusta Chronicle says in re regard

Look, Listen," which appears at the
Temple tomorrow evening:
"Stop! Look! Listen!" A musical
comedy has appeared in Augusta for
the second season that is actually bet
ter than the first time it was shown
here! A company is presenting 'it in
Augusta that is a first rate, high-class
company and in every way the show
carries out every promise made by
press agents concerning it. All of
which means that Stop! Look! Listen!

To start with the music is Irving
Berlin at his brightest and best and
that is saying much, for his music has
a whimsical, haunting quality, and a
gaiety and charm that few of the
present-day composers can equal. The
book is by Harry Smith, and very
clever. The play is staged with the
elaboration that usually marks a
Dillingham production. The com company

some very pretty girls but best of
all the principals in the cast are far
higher class thanre often seen here
in musical comedies.
Gracie O'Malley as Violet, is not
only a very handsome woman, but she
can sing and dance and act and her
work in the "Ragtime Melodrama"
was especially fine.
Billy Dunham, as Connor, the press
agent, is a wonder both in his songs
and in his splendid comedy work all
through. This clever pair is ably sec seconded
onded seconded by Raymond Freeman as Parks
and Zella Rambeau as Mary Singer,
the latter having an unusually fine
voice and her dancing in the Hawaiian
scene was exquisite.
The best specialty work was done
by Shaw and Lee, both as the "Coons"
and the "Sheriffs." The song hits of
the evening were, "I Love a Piano,"
"The Magazine Girls," "Take Off a
Little Bit More," and the delightfully
clever "Ragtime Melodrama."
But it was all good from beginning
to end and should draw two packed
houses today. E. A. B.
