Dramatic Feuilleton

Quelqu'un [Winter, William]. "Dramatic Feuilleton." New-York Saturday Press. 18 Sep. 1860: 3.
theater criticism

Addressing his piece to the "General," Quelqu'un discusses his distaste at the practice by theatrical managers of writing "cards"--apparently a supplementary description of a forthcoming dramatic production intended both for publicity and general information. Quelqu'un specifically cites a "card" written by Laura Keene. Quelqu'un also talks about the operatic season and gives a sarcastic critique of both the performances and the audiences.
