Dramatic Feuilleton

Quelqu'un [Winter, William]. "Dramatic Feuilleton." New York Saturday Press. 18 Oct. 1859: 2.
theater criticism

Quelqu'un writes that the current lack of anything to write a Feuilleton about prompted Personne to abandon his post, which Quelqu'un foolishly "rushed in" to take over. He discusses his trouble over what to write about and how to write it. Quelqu'un then moves on to talk about the main virtue of the recent popular dramas and why they have been able to draw such large audiences - they all lack sense. Quelqu'un then reviews, Dot, which he has seen four times. He reports that "half a dozen lagers taken at Pfaff's immediately after" did little to help Quelqu'un and the "jolly Briton" who accompanied him to the Winter Garden.
