Dramatic Feuilleton

Personne [Wilkins, Edward G. P.]. "Dramatic Feuilleton." New York Saturday Press. 18 Jun. 1859: 2-3.
theater criticism

Personne writes about the current events in theater and music that have occurred during the recent heat wave. Personne discusses in detail the reasons for the poor attendance at the benefit for the Women's Hospital Association and the debut of Madame la Comtesse de Ferussac. He also announces the arrival of the Florances at Wallack's for the summer season and discusses the Misses Gougenheim's burlesque of Cinderella at Laura Keene's Theatre. Personne includes several notes about recent news in the theatrical community and upcoming performances. The Feuilleton includes two important reprints: a public statement from Maurice Strakosch and the "card" from H.L. Bateman that announces the engagement of Mrs. Mathilda Heron-Stoepel at his theater.
