Dramatic Feuilleton

Personne [Wilkins, Edward G. P.]. "Dramatic Feuilleton." New-York Saturday Press. 13 Mar. 1860: 3.
theater criticism

Personne writes that the "distressing lack of novelty at the Broadway Theatres" has led him to explore the "Oriental districts" where he saw Wilkomet, or, The Indian's Curse, by H.J. Conway, at the New Bowery (3). Personne gives a plot summary and review of the performance. Personne mentions the "snub" the Evening Post gave the "Sunday critics" in the article discussing the Sunday opera. Personne claims there is a "family quarrel" about the "Subscriber" between the Evening Post, Times, Dispatch, and Atlas that disputes some of Personne's remarks (3). Personne concludes with a review of the Opera Martha, starring Adelina Patti, and discusses her announced plans to tour/visit Europe.
