New Show at Tivoli

Bright hi presentation, strong In novelty, and adequately tuneful, Frank Nell's new revue, 'The Big Show of 1936," at the Tis oil Theatre sets a High standard It is a ness style of show within the limits of traditional vaudeville There Is some smart dancing by a bev> of clever girls much uproarious comedy from Angus Watson, and a first-rate contribution by Maxine Lewis, who knows how to sing into a micro- phone should be very popular as the

season advances

Brilliant work Is done by the Alexander and Santos company, which comprises two men and a woman The "act" is really one of tile knock-about variety, with the performers masquerading as classical dancers Their burlesque is along adagio lines Athletic grace and gjmnnstic skill are shown by the Erikson Brothers, whose feats are both thrilling and entertaining, and tho aerial work of the Windsor Troupe is something to wonder at Precision and timing in this "turn ' make it s cry atti at- tise Castel and Barker in a neat balanc- ing display, and the Seven Martincttls with their Risley act, are other athletic interludes of high standard The Armoui Boss provide a burlesque boxing turn which is most amusing, and Eric Barker gises a clever skit on test cricket With good support in sketches and song scenas from Chic Arnold, Isobelle Mahon, Al.

Many well-known singers and instru- mentalists gave efficient service. Mr. Cecil Parkes showed characteristic dexterity in a sarasato "Tarantelle," and was for- tunate In having Miss May Broderick as his associate pianist. Mr. Herbert Browne pleased the audience by his experienced handling of Lehar's "Oh Maiden, My

Malden"; Miss Freda Northcote con- tributed seevral vocal items with agree- able animation, and Miss Louie Dunn's recitations proved Immediately success-
