"All the humors of Mormonism"

Wherein Vaudeville, May 1917

From the NY Times archives:
The new musical comedy which arrived with a bang at the Astor Theatre last evening is several times as amusing as the average of its kind, although it has only one song that is simply inescapable and although none of the several comedians enlisted for its company is a star of the first magnitude.

....Then, too, Mormonism is just about the only religion that can be exploited in musical comedy.
