Dramatic Feuilleton

Quelqu'un [Winter, William]. "Dramatic Feuilleton." New-York Saturday Press. 29 Sep. 1860: 3.
theater criticism

In this Feuilleton, Quelqu'un takes his "revenge" on "this entire muscular business" of over-acting and "bullying" audiences for emotional responses (3). Quelqu'un cites Forrest's current performance as Hamlet as an example, but also notes that this tendency is more prevalent in the pulpit. Quelqu'un also gives the current Opera news and reviews Medea, claiming Cortesi was good enough to keep him awake for the entire performance and the following night. Quelqu'un takes issue with the Tribune's comparison of Cortesi and Forrest and gives the reasons for his objections. At the end of the column, Quelqu'un reprints a letter from his "young friend" "Horatius" that discusses Verdi and the Opera (3).
