Richmond Dispatch of a recent
date says:
"Miss Brown,", whose strange
adventures entertained a very ap
preciative audience at the Acade-
my last night, is about as uncon-
ventional and exhilarating a young
lady as has been here lately. If,
as her managers claim "Charley's
Aunt" has ; encirclel the globe
with a laugh,
close on her
"Miss Brown"
trail, and her
markable escapades kept the au-
diencein a roar last night.
The comedy deals with a man
masquerading in feminine attire,
and although delicate ground for
playwright and comedian, it must
be said that oth keep within due
bounds, and derive all the amuse
ment possible from the situation.
There is nothing risque about jit,
but there are ..numerous ludicrous
scenes which throughout amuse.
The company which is presenting
the farce is large and thoroughly
competent, so that taken as a
whole the "Strange Adventures of
Miss Brown" will Drove a laugh-
producer of the first class.
