Nice vaudeville poster for Sullivan & Considine's Empress Theatre. This show featured 'The Canoe Girls,' a dog pantomime company, Phasma, and other vaudeville acts. The Empress Theatre in Los Angeles was located downtown at 338 South Spring Street.
"The headline feature of the new Sullivan and Considine bill opening at the Empress with the usual matinee Monday, will be Joe Maxwell's latest musical comedy, 'The Canoe Girls.' The offering requires the services of 12 people, including a sprightly chorus of eight. The cast is headed by Nina Collins and Bert Gardner. The second feature is Morian's Swiss Canine Pantomime company, which scored a sensation at the Berlin Winter Garden. This company of 40 canine actors offers a pantomime called 'The Spoiled Honeymoon.' Third among the new-comers will be Phasma, the Goddess of Light, an elaborate and dancing sensation." - Los Angeles Evening Post (01/24/1914).
