People Mentioned in this Work

Shanly (Shanley), Charles [pages:4,5]

Figaro writes that Shanly and Robert Heller were with him the night he caught "enthusiasm" at a performance of Belphagor. Shanly also caught "enthusiasm" that evening (4).

Wallack's Lyceum [pages:5]

Figaro notes that Charles Reade's Never too Late to Mend is still being performed at Wallack's, which he thinks may be due, in part, to the "truly magnificent scenery" (5).
