Seasonal Digest

The Adelphi Theatre underwent a complete renovation during the period between the end of the previous season and the opening of the 1838-1839 season on 1 October 1838. According to an account in the Times, "the ceiling [was] heightened and made into the form of a dome and the whole of the boxes, proscenium, etc., decorated, painted and gilded with great taste."  The writer observed, "the whole bears an appearance of cleanliness, elegance, and comfort" (2 October 1838).  Frederick Yates and Thomas Gladstane promised their audiences a satisfying season by hiring Laura Honey, Mary Ann Keeley, John Webster, Frank Matthews, Edward Wright, and Edward Stirling.  Indeed, even though the season was shorter than previous ones (only 144 performances) and featured fewer plays (24), it was one of the most successful seasons of the decade.

Much of that success was due to Edward Stirling and his adaptation of Charles Dickens' Nicholas Nickleby, which opened on 19 November and ran through the end of the season.  The Times described the production as an "unprecedented success" (20 November 1838) while the Athenæum was far more reserved in its praise, "The best that can be said of the Adelphi Nickleby is that the principal characters are well 'cast', dressed, and personated" (November 24, 1838).  Although the play opened after only eight parts of the novel had been serialized, Dickens himself was pleased with the production.  After seeing it during the first week of its run, he wrote to his friend John Forster, praising "the skilful management and dressing of the boys, the capital manner and...the careful making-up of all the people...Mrs. Keeley's first appearance beside the fire...and all the rest of Smike was excellent" (Letters of Charles Dickens, I, 459).  Mrs. Keeley's performance as Smike received universal praise, and equally appreciated were O. Smith's portrayal of Newman Noggs and Yates' delineation of Mantalini.  Once again, the Adelphi's association with the writings of the beloved "Boz" brought acclaim and profit.

Most managers might have been satisfied with the success of Nicolas Nickleby, but not Frederick Yates.  He constantly sought "novelties" and new attractions to present to his audiences.  He began the season with the Bayadères, a troupe of eight Indian dancers.  Much was made in the London press of Yates' efforts to outbid and out-maneuver other managers to secure the dancers' services, and the Times reported on 3 September 1838, that he would pay them 5,000 guineas for the season.  The young women appeared in A Race for a Rarity, The Law of Brahma; or, the Hindoo Widow, and Arajoon; or, The Conquest of Mysore, whose plots were merely frames upon which to present occasions for the Indians to dance.  The Bayadères received unanimous praise in the London press for their exotic dancing, and they remained at the Adelphi throughout the fall.

Thomas Rice returned to the Adelphi during December and played throughout the year.  He revived his popular "Jim Crow" vehicle, A Flight to America and premiered two other plays written especially for him, Jim Crow in His New Place by Thomas P. Taylor and The Foreign Prince by an unknown playwright.  Like the shows written for the Bayadères, these plays were acknowledged by the press to be vehicles for the "display of Rice's peculiarities" (unidentified review on a New York bill 31 December 1838).  Audiences apparently did not care.  They continued to pour into the theatre to see Rice; Yates and Gladstane paid him 40 pounds per week for his services (Theatrical Observer, 1 January 1839).

The fourth major "attraction" of the season was the appearance of a giant, Monsieur Bihin, who was featured for 57 performances in Stirling's The Giant of Palestine.  Loosely based upon Tasso's Siege of Jerusalem, the play provided the giant with numerous opportunities to display his strength against various enemies.  The Belgian performer's ability as an actor was never mentioned in the reviews, and his physical attributes, not the script or the interpretation, were the primary attraction to curious critics and audiences alike.

As the season reached its end, Yates premiered the Adelphi's fourth adaptation of Dickens, Stirling's version of Oliver Twist.  Although the show only played for sixteen performances, the performers received high praise from the London critics.  The Athenæum wrote that "Mrs. Yates...as Nancy...is fearfully true to nature.  O. Smith is the burglar [Sikes] every inch of him" (2 March 1839, p. 174).  Frederick Yates, as Fagin, gave "a most faithful and appalling picture of the heartless sordid villain; we have never seen a finer histrionic portrait," declared the Theatrical Observer on 4 March 1839.  Mary Ann Keeley apparently played Oliver adequately, despite Dickens' warnings in an earlier letter to Yates that if the part, "be played by a female, it should be a very sharp girl of thirteen or fourteen" (Letters of Charles Dickens, I, 388).  Critics disagreed on the success of Stirling's adaptation, which was one of six versions of the novel that had appeared on the London stage since March of 1838 (ibid.).  The Times wrote, "a vast deal of the interminable slang of the novel is got rid of...and so far the auditor at the Adelphi is better off than the reader of the book" (26 February 1839).  In contrast, the Athenæum critic lamented, "the actors...have to contend with a very poor dramatic version of the story."  True to the management's practice of presenting novelties at the Adelphi, these accomplished performers shared the bill with a performance by the "celebrated Parisian monkeys."

After a benefit for Elizabeth Yates on 21 March, Yates and Gladstane closed the Adelphi for the season on 23 March 1839.  In his farewell address, Yates "congratulated himself on having made a lucrative and successful season" and promised the audience greater pleasures in the future (Theatrical Observer, 26 March 1839).

ADELPHI THEATRE.

A set of very diverting, if not very legitimate, performers made their first appearance last night on the stage of this theatre—to wit, the celebrated Parisian monkeys.  Since quadrupeds of all sorts have, for some time, more than divided the plaudits of the town with biped players, it may perhaps be no intrusion for animals which sometimes walk on four legs and sometimes on two, to put in their claim for the support and approbation of the lovers of the drama; and since many "walking gentlemen" and "low" comedians ape the characteristics of the monkey tribe in a manner occasionally so perfectly natural that the copies can hardly be distinguished from the originals, and receive for their grimaces the encomiums of the spectators, neither they or their admirers can complain that the monkeys should return the obligation, and mimic their eccentricities for their own objects and ends.  The performance of these miniature comedians commenced last night with the entrance of a little gentleman, who, after bowing to the audience, advanced with a very dignified step to the foot lights and reaching out his hand presented the leader of the orchestra with a scroll of music.  There was something so very funny in the way in which this was done that all disapprobation was merged in laughter.  The house was taken by surprise, and rang with peals of merriment and applause.  This little gentleman, Il Signor Ambrogini, having retired, the celebrated Mimi went through the various evolutions of dancing, broad-sword fighting, playing the tambourine, &c. he produced his passport, made love to very little lady, &c. and conducted himself with great dignity and elegance.  Signor Brazilini accompanied him in a variety of his movements, and played a solo on a very minute pair of castanets.  Mademoiselle Chieni, a lady of rather larger dimensions, was then announced, and made her debut in the character of Madame Pompadour; she was attended by her valet, Monsieur Jacko, a pretty little specimen of the natives of an Indian forest.  What was called a "Cabinet dinner" succeeded, at which the company sat as heavy and stupid as most persona do at Cabinet dinners of the present day, whilst the servant performed some comical antics behind the backs of his betters.  No sooner was the drama over, than Mr. Yates himself came forward, and announced that a "Jim Crow," (neither of the celebrated Mr. Rices) was taken suddenly ill, and begged the company to excuse his appearance.  The request was granted amidst loud cheering.  The curtain then fell, and Mr. Yates again came forward, and assured the audience that his monkeys were the "celebrated" monkeys; that other managers had advertised monkeys, and that other monkeys might possibly appear in other places, but, knowing the passion of the town for novelty and for animal actors, he had resolved to be first in the field, and had accordingly presented them with a set of performer for whose efforts he solicited their kindness.  The announcement was followed by an uproar of applause, and the successors of Garrick, Kemble, and Kean may be considered installed in their present situations.
