Born in County Cork and raised primarily in Limerick, Ireland, Fitz-James O'Brien moved to New York City in 1852.
O'Brien writes that he has nothing to write about, as the two major theaters in town have run the same plays for the past seven weeks and seem to be continuing the runs of The Merchant of Venice and Our American Cousin indefinitely. He considers alerting Mr. Wallack and Miss Keene about the negative effects this type of practice will have and has had on the work of the dramatic critic.
