The Morning Call (San Francisco, California) - April 22, 1890


There was a large audience at the Bush-street Theater last evening to witness the first performance in this city of a farce-comedy entitled "Zig-Zag." This new candidate for public favor falls considerably below our expectations. The dialogue is excessively dull and the stage business is mostly of the knock-about order. The gags are decidedly musty. Singing and dancing relieve the rather uninteresting dialogue. The company, with one or two exceptions, is rather mediocre. Miss Frankie Kemble is a bright soubrette and does her level best with the part assigned to her. She is a neat dancer and sings pleasingly. The remainder of the cast does not call for special mention. "Zig-Zag" will be continued during the week.
