Lily Morris 1882-1952


Born Lilles Mary Crosby, Lily Morris had a long career as a soubrette and Principal boy. She turned to comedy, and by 1917 was established as a comedienne and chorus singer of such popular numbers as “Why am I always the Bridesmaid” and “Don’t Have Any More, Missus Moore”. A huge star of Music Hall and later in Variety, she was as popular in the United States as she was in the UK.


This photograph is most likely from “Jack & Jill” at the Prince’s Theatre, Bristol in 1907-08. She appeared in this panto with  Nipper Lupino Lane, Geo. Miller, Tom .E.Murray, Fred Allandale  and Mabel Russell.
