Thoughts and Things

Clare, Ada. "Thoughts and Things." New-York Saturday Press. 17 Apr. 1860: 2.

In this column, Clare focuses on the recent dramatic performances in the city. She begins with a lengthy discussion of Colleen Bawn at Laura Keene's Theatre. Clare discusses the actors' performances, the wardrobe, and the plot of the play. Clare also makes a late mention of Poor Young Man at Wallack's. She also includes, possibly humorously, that it has been announced that there is to be a line of millinery called "Fabbri" after the opera singer. Clare concludes with a humorous discussion of the prevalence of feather beds as props in the current dramatic productions.
