theater criticism

Personne begins with a discussion of Laura Keene's A Midsummer Night's Dream including a discussion of why William Shakespeare appears to be a minor co-author of the play. Personne also includes a review and summary of the production. Personne denounces the playwright Miles, stating that he could be a good companion for Leland and reviews Miles's Senor Valiente. Personne gives a passing mention of the current events at Wallack's, the French Theatre, and the opera. He also notes that the "agony" of The Dark Hour Before the Dawn will have passed before the next Saturday Press.
