The Season

Benjamin N. Webster became the lessee for the 1844-1845 Adelphi Theatre season, which opened on 28 September 1844 with performances of Mother and Son, The Belle of the Hotel; or, American Sketches, Norma, and How to Pay the Rent. The director for this season was Mme. Céleste; Edward Stirling continued as stage manager.

The opening address for the season was written by Gilbert A. á Beckett and spoken by Mrs. Frederick H. Yates. The theatre had been entirely redecorated and repainted in the recess by T. Ireland, and the boxes so arranged as to give an unrestricted view of the stage. Careful attention was paid to ventilation, as the smell of gas was irritating and inescapable at all theatres of the day. In addition, "a splendid new chandelier in glass has been introduced at considerable expense, executed by Mr. Phillips, also a new curtain and new act drop designed and painted by Mr. C. Marshall" (Theatrical Observer, 24 September 1844).

Two minor pieces received passing note in the Theatrical Observer. Mother and Son was dismissed--"Little can be said in its favour as a dramatic piece; it, however, received some applause through the excellent acting of O. Smith, Lambert, Mrs. Yates, and Mme. Céleste" (30 September). The Fox and the Goose fared better. "It is an adaptation from the French and was exceedingly well played by Hudson, Paul Bedford, Cowell and Mrs. Fitzwilliam. It is interspersed with some pretty music composed by Ambrose Thomas, arranged by Mr. T. German Reed" (3 October 1844).

With great flourish, Benjamin Webster made his first appearance on the Adelphi boards in Don Caesar de Bazan. The golden age of Adelphi dramas was about to begin. Under the joint managership of Webster and Mme. Céleste, the theatre increased its reputation. A long series of plays by John Baldwin Buckstone added materially to the success of the house. The Theatrical Observer, (15 October) recorded the historic moment.

There was a simultaneous burst of applause from all parts of the house which lasted some minutes ... his acting throughout the drama was excellent, and his well-known talent found ample scope in the character of Don Caesar. The drama has been dramatised, we believe, by Mr. Bourcicault [sic], and he has displayed much judgment in its construction. Mme. Céleste was the Maritina; her performance of the Neapolitan girl was truly natural ... she danced the Tarantella of Napoli with Miss Woolgar [whose] style of acting did not suit the part of Lazarillo. It is impossible for her to keep a serious face (15 October 1844).

Nicoll lists the author of The Belle of the Hotel; or, American Sketches as unknown, and says it was the same piece acted at Niblo's Garden, New York (August 1842) "written to display the versatility of Fanny Fitzwilliam who was there on a visit." The bill, however, clearly gives John B. Buckstone as the author.

Victorine; or, I'll Sleep on It was revived for this season with "new scenery, dresses, properties, and decorations." But it played only 12 times.

One of the great successes of the season was The Mysterious Stranger, and from the reviews printed on the bill of 29 October 1844, it is clear that the play had a sensational effect on its audiences. The plot was as follows. Count Henry de Beausoleil (Hudson) supposes he has given a bond to Satan for his wealth. The bond falls due, but His Grand Satanic Majesty grants a respite of twenty-four hours. All the Count's former friends desert him in his time of need, and he believes himself lost. He is ultimately discovered sleeping on a sofa by a young woman who has long loved him (Mme. Céleste). It was she who personated Satan to show the Count the folly of his ways.

The public press was much taken with the piece, and numerous extracts were printed on the bills. The Times reported that

A scene in a night-cellar, the resort of thieves, in which the banker takes refuge in order to obtain a forged passport to secure his escape, and where the young lady has previously gained admittance in the disguise of a gamin, was particularly effective. Mme. Céleste, who played 'the Mysterious Stranger,' was admirably 'made-up', in all her disguises, and acted the part with great pointedness, and at the same time with quiet discretion of manner ... Selby, as a thoroughly heartless parasite, endowed with a wonderful flow of animal spirits, and Mrs. F. Matthews, who was very funny as a widow ... no doubt the piece will prove a thorough 'hit.'

The Morning Post agreed. "That this strange but effective drama will prove the greatest hit of the season we do not entertain a doubt. It is the very thing for the Adelphi--full of mystery, strong excitement, and delicious improbability."

The Mysterious Stranger's author is listed on the bill as Charles Selby, but it is noted also that the work was "founded on a comedie vaudeville by Mssrs. Clairville et Damarin called Satan; ou, Le Diable A Paris."

English authors were adapted with equal vigor. Mrs. Caudle at Home and Abroad was "adapted from renowned papers in Punch by Douglas Jerrold." A new Dickens work led to yet another Adelphi dramatization of the great novelist. Dickens had made an agreement with Madame Céleste to permit Mark Lemon to adapt it. A new drop-scene painted for the occasion represented the title page of the work. If the novelist had hoped to forestall other dramatizations, he was unsuccessful--five versions were performed including one by The Adelphi favorite Edward Stirling played at The Lyceum.

The Theatrical Observer said, "We have seldom seen actors take so much pain with their parts ... O. Smith's Toby Veck was capital as were Hudson's Will Fern, Selby's Richard, and Miss Fortescue's Meggy Veck. This young lady's sweet acting gave general satisfaction" (19 December 1844).

The pantomime was Cat's Castle; or, Harlequin and the King of the Rats. According to the bill, it was "founded on a categorical and doggerel poem, written by a laureate who invoked the mews in the Middle Ages, called Cat's Castle and how it was besieged and taken by the rats."

The Theatrical Observer, 28 December gave it a stamp of approval. "There are numerous good changes in the piece, and the Clown and Pantaloon's practical jokes create incessant laughter. Harlequin and Columbine dance with much ease and agility, and the scenery, dresses, etc. were appropriate and magnificent. The pantomime was loudly applauded throughout."

The editors selected an arbitrary date, 30 August, as the season's end because there was no summer break.

SCENE FROM THE "MYSTERIOUS STRANGER."

The accompanying sketch embodies one of the most effective scenes of this spirited piece.  The Satanic tormenter of the puzzled Count Beausoleil (Mr. Hudson) has fully performed all his predictions.  The Count has lost his fortune, and with his fortune his friends and his mistress.  On a rumour, however, that his runaway banker has been arrested, his mistress returns, for there is then a chance of the fortune being recovered, explains away her desertion, and renews her vows of fidelity.  At this nick of time his mysterious persecutor enters, declares all the lady has said to be false, and proves it by putting the Count into a closet, declaring that the banker has escaped beyond the possibility of arrest, that the fortune is lost, and that he himself, being rich beyond calculation, will marry the lady himself; and she consents, to the great horror of the Count, who rushes forward maddened, seizes the pistols from the case his visitor has brought, with an offer of being his second in the duel that must inevitably take place with his dearest friend, for whom his mistress has deserted him, and fires!  As the weapons had probably been prepared for such a catastrophe, by the agent who brought them, he stands in the doorway harmless, thus again turning a natural cause into a proof of his supernatural power; the cleverness with which this is done throughout is the great merit of the piece.

SCENE FROM THE DRAMA OF "THE CHIMES," AT THE ADELPHI THEATRE.

Our illustration is from the Second Quarter of this impressive drama--the scene that in which Trotty Veck having brought home Will Fern and Lilian, the orphan, joins his daughter Meg, in setting before them the hospitality of their humble home.  We cannot do better than quote the original story, of which, indeed, the drama is a reflex:--

    Trotty, in a breathless state, set the child down before his daughter in the middle of the floor.  The little visitor looked once at Meg; and doubting nothing in that face, but trusting everything she saw there, ran into her arms.
    "Here we are and here we go!" cried Trotty, running round the room and choking audibly.  "Here!  Uncle Will!  Here's a fire you know!  Why don't you come to the fire?  Oh here we are and here we go!  Meg, my precious darling, where's the kettle?  Here it is and here it goes, and it'll bile in no time!"
    Trotty really had picked up the kettle somewhere or other in the course of his wild career and now put it on the fire: while Meg, seating the child in a warm corner, knelt down on the ground before her, and pulled off her shoes, and dried her wet feet on a cloth.  Aye, and she laughed at Trotty too--so pleasantly, so cheerfully, that Trotty could have blessed her where she kneeled: for he had seen that, when they entered, she was sitting by the fire in tears.
    "Why father!" said Meg, "You're crazy to-night, I think.  I don't know what the Bells would say to that.  Poor little feet.  How cold they are!"
    "Oh they're warmer now!" exclaimed the child.  "‘They're quite warm now!"
    "No, no, no," said Meg.  "We haven't rubbed ‘em half enough.  We're so busy.  So busy!  And when they're done, we'll brush out the damp hair; and when that's done, we'll bring some colour to the poor pale face with fresh water; and when that's done we'll be so gay, arid brisk, and happy--!"
    The child, in a burst of sobbing, clasped her round the neck; caressed her fair cheek with its hand; and said, "Oh Meg!  Oh dear Meg!"
    Toby's blessing could have done no more.  Who could do more?
    "Why father!" cried Meg, after a pause.
    "Here I am, and here I go, my dear," said Trotty.
    "Good Gracious me!" cried Meg.  "He's crazy!  He's put the dear child's bonnet on the kettle, and hung the lid behind the door!"
    "I didn't go to do it, my love," said Trotty, hastily repairing this mistake.
    "Meg, my dear?"
    Meg looked towards him and saw that he had elaborately stationed himself behind the chair of their male visitor, where with many mysterious gestures he was holding up the sixpence he had earned.
    "I see, my dear," said Trotty, "as I was coming in, half an ounce of tea lying somewhere on the stairs; and I'm pretty sure there was a bit of bacon too.  As I don't remember where it was, exactly; I'll go myself and try to find ‘em."
    With this "inscrutable artifice," Trotty withdraws to purchase the viands; the meal is prepared, and little party--
    Trotty's occupation was to see Will Fern and Lilian eat and drink; and so was Meg's.  And never did spectators at a city dinner or court banquet find such high delight in seeing others feast: although it were a monarch or a pope: as those two did, in looking on that night.  Meg smiled at Trotty, Trotty laughed at Meg.  Meg shook her head and made belief to clap her hands, applauding Totty; Trotty conveyed, in dumb-show, unintelligible narratives of how and when and where he had found their visitors, to Meg; and they were happy.  Very happy.

This is one of the most effective scenes in the homely drama: it has so many touches of domestic pathos--so much of everyday life-- and is cleverly but naturally acted throughout.  W. O. Smith, as Trotty, is an artistical portrait; Mr. Hudson, as Will Fern, is judiciously emphatic; and Miss Fortescue, as Meg, plays with a tenderness that gains upon the feelings of the audience.

ADELPHI.

The Pantomime at this house is from the pen of Mr. Buckstone, and is called "Cat's Castle; or, Harlequin and the King of the Rats," and purports to be "founded upon a categorical and doggrel poem, written by a Laureate, who invoked the Mews of the Middle Ages."  We can well remember an old lottery print upon the same subject, which was published by Messrs.  Bowles and Carver, who formerly kept such an endless repository of entertaining pictures in St. Paul's Churchyard.  The whole of the opening of this piece is taken up by the warlike preparations and battles of the contending parties.  We find Whiskers, King of the Rats (Mr. C. J. Smith), and the Princess Molrow (Miss Lonsdale); there is also Prince Tortoiseshell Torn (Mr. T. Ireland), and Kill Cat, Generalissimo of the Rat Army (Mr. Sanders); while amongst the officers are such names, in the feline army, as Marshal Pantiler, Colonel Purwell, and Major Fitz-spit.  The siege and blowing up of Cat's Castle is the signal for the appearance of the Fairy Honeysuckle, in a radiant star, who transforms Tortoiseshell and Molrow to Harlequin and Columbine, and Whiskers and Kill Cat to Clown and Pantaloon.  A number of allusions to passing events are introduced in the Pantomime, as well as the topics of the past year: Hungerford Suspension Bridge and the Invisible Shell; the Running Rein Fraud and the Insolvent Debtors' Court; the Washhouses for the Million; General Tom Thumb--all leading up to a succession of dioramic tableaux associated with events retrospective of the year 1844, painted by Mr. Charles Marshall.

The business after the transformations proved somewhat dull, and even making allowance for a first representation, the machinery was very much at fault.  The tricks were old, and scarcely brought a laugh; and the audience appeared as dull as if witnessing a tragedy.  The feats of the Infant Lauri Family drew down considerable applause, and were really clever; one or two things here and there were pretty good, as the "Box of American stores," changing to Tom Thumb's carriage, from which a capital likeness of the "General" alighted, and bowed to the audience.  There was, also, a cleverly painted scene of Dioramic Tableaux of the most attractive events of the past year.

ADELPHI.

The new drama of "The Green Bushes, or a Hundred Years Ago" produced this week at the Adelphi has quite brought about a revival of its glories and adds another to the list of masterly productions for which this theatre is indebted to the talent of Mr. Buckstone.  It possesses in an eminent degree all the qualities for which that dramatist is so distinguished--a naturally sustained interest, working through a series of the most dramatic incidents with the utmost lucidity and neatness of construction, abounding in coups de théâtres, which, whilst they are of a striking description, bear a freshness about them which saves them from mere conventionality.  The interest is spread over a period of three years, beginning from 1745, and the scene is chiefly in Ireland, although in the second act we are transported to the wilds of America.

The first act commences with an Irish fair, all the peasants being discovered before a whiskey booth, and amongst them we find Wild Murtogh (Mr. O. Smith), a gentleman desirous of bettering himself and not particular about the means.  He is at this moment the proprietor of a lucky bag and invites the peasants to take a dip.  The first candidate for the prize is Nelly O'Neil (Mrs. Fitzwilliam), a smart little wench courted by all the lads, and telling long stories to Master George (Mr. Hudson), the Squire Conner O'Kennedy's brother, about losing Connor's child, and finding it again through singing the old song of "The Green Bushes." She draws a prize, and all the rest, who draw blanks, vent their disappointment on Wild Murtogh, terminating the scene in a general row.  We are then introduced into the house of Connor O'Kennedy (Mr. Selby), and find his wife Geraldine, (Mrs. Yates,) pressing him not to mix himself further in the rebellion.  Here, Nelly, who is Geraldine's foster-sister, comes in with a placard which she has torn off from a wall, offering a reward for Connor's head.  No time is to be lost, and instant flight is determined on.  We then witness an altercation between George Kennedy and Wild Murtogh, who have been in league together against Connor--one to obtain the price of his capture, the other his estate but are now at odds, as George would prefer assisting his brother's flight.  The last scene of the act is a barn, where the peasants are assembled for a dance, Wild Murtogh officiating as piper.  The jigging is interrupted by the appearance of Connor and his wife, who have come to bid them farewell.  The barn door is opened, and a boat appears on the water, into which Connor steps.  At that moment a trap door springs open, and a party of soldiers concealed there by Murtogh's information, rush upon the rebel.  His wife interposes her body before them, striking up the muskets levelled at him, and the boat moves off, a tableau being formed of the peasantry overpowering the soldiers.

In the second act, the curtain rises on a hut near the borders of the Mississippi.  It is inhabited by a strange couple: Miami, Madame Celeste, the wild huntress of the Mississippi, the orphan daughter of a French officer who married an Indian squaw--an extraordinary being, who has found a mate in the escaped rebel Connor, to whom she is passionately devoted.  Connor is no less fascinated by this strange creature, half savage and half civilized; but is occasionally tormented with the bitter remembrance of the wife and the child he has left at home.  At last, as he is left alone, remorsefully pondering, for the hundredth time, over a letter from his wife, a figure, pale and faltering, appears on the bridge that crosses to the entrance of his hut.  It is Geraldine, who has, crossed the Atlantic after her husband, and wandered in search of him.  Connor is overwhelmed at the meeting; joy at seeing his wife again, and dread for the consequences of her appearance distract him.  Suddenly, whilst she is in his arms, Miami appears on the bridge, starts at the sight, and then stands fixed, her eyes riveted on the couple like a tigress watching her prey.  They move, Connor leading his wife to a place of concealment, and Miami follows in the track bursting with fierce jealousy.  At last, overpowered by it, she levels her rifle at Connor, and as he is embracing his wife the bullet pierces his breast.  A shriek follows, and Geraldine rushes to the spot where Miami is, and, ignorant that she did the deed, entreats her to Connor's assistance.  Miami is thus dragged to witness the dying agonies of her faithless companion, and when he has breathed his last, she mounts a rock and throws herself into the stream--the scene being on the banks of the Mississippi, which is illuminated by the ruddy glare of the setting sun.  Just after her plunge, a raft, bearing a party of French officers to their homeward-bound ship, appears, and they are seen to raise the body of Miami from the water, the curtain descending on the tableau.

The third act brings us back again to Ireland, where George Kennedy is endeavouring, by proof of his brother's death, to take possession of the estate; having, by the assistance of Murtogh, got rid of his little child, Eveleen, left to the care of Nelly, who, on her side, is nearly driven distracted by the loss, and, remembering how she found the child by the same means, is wandering about the country, singing "The Green Bushes." Miami has been to France and inherited an estate.  She appears now in Ireland, in civilized habits, having vowed to make all reparation for her deed of vengeance.  By good fortune, she discovers Connor's child in the care of a blacksmith and immediately takes it under her protection.  Geraldine, too, has returned to Ireland and meets with her sister as she is pursuing her, search for the lost child.

At last all meet--Nelly's plan succeeds, and it leads her to Miami's presence.  George Kennedy repents his misdeeds, and Miami gives up all her property to the little child, after which she dies broken hearted.  We have omitted to refer to the comic portion of the drama, which was entrusted to Messrs. Wright and Bedford.  The former is the master of a show, travelling in America in search of natural curiosities, and the other a Jack Tar who assists the views of his friend by enticing the affections of a real squaw with whom they make their departure, not without a fearful encounter with some Indians.

The piece from beginning to end was admirably put upon the stage and as admirably acted: there was not a part but was done the fullest justice to.  Were we to detail the merits of each, we should exceed all limits: let us mention one only, as having more than usually distinguished himself--Mr. Selby, who, in the part of Connor, was impressive without effort, and quiet, yet conveying the full effect of every situation.  The music was also very effective.  A duet, delightfully sung by Mrs. Fitzwilliam and Hudson, was encored the first night.  Great praise is also due to Mr. Mellon for his melodramatic music; it is of a far higher order than such occasions usually call forth and did much to enhance the poetry of many of the effects.  "The Green Bushes" is, in short, a thorough hit, and will run, and what is more, draw, for many nights.

Our illustration represents the closing scene of this deservedly successful drama.

ADELPHI.

The ready pens of Messrs. Mark Lemon and Gilbert ŕ Beckett, have furnished a very admirable burlesque to this theatre, "founded," as they assure us, "on a polite request from Madame Celeste," but taken from the old English chivalric legend of "St. George and the Dragon." Putting aside the clever notion worked out with great tact in the plot--that of making the dragon the impersonation of humbug--as well as the sparkling dialogue, which is crammed with jokes, puns, and allusions, the piece has been produced in the most gorgeous style: all the appliances are of first-rate excellence, and the extravaganza, good as it is in itself, has certainly received every adventitious aid from the spirited management.

St. George is performed by Miss Woolgar, a valuable actress in burlesque, where intelligence and perception of humour are required.  Mr. Wright is Almidor, a black monarch, paying court to the Princess Sabra (Miss Ellen Chaplin); Mr. Paul Bedford is "great" in all senses as the Dragon, and wears a dress, which is an ingenious compromise between a scaly monster's and a Newmarket "cut-away;" and Mr. Selby is a magnificent Ptolemy.

St. George undertakes the crusade against the Dragon, to win the hand of Sabra, and finally vanquishes him by the Press, which changes to the Spirit of Truth, ingeniously working out the notion above alluded to.

There are so many good things in this burlesque that it is very difficult to select some.  Possibly those which follow are amongst the best.

Cuimoth is dressing the hair of Kabyla, the enchantress:--

       Cui. (brushing KABYLA'S hair)
    Your hair, my lady's, getting rather dry,
    Some of the Russian balsam shall I try?
       Kab. Well, p'rhaps you may--yet no--upon the whole,
    Anything Russian's hurtful to the Pole;
    The very thought my nervous system shocks,
    O!  would that mine were like Chubb's--safety locks!
    Should I turn Grey, I'd bid the world good bye,
       Zon. If you turn grey, it would be time to dye.

A marriage contract:--

       Kab. Yon living charger I design for thee
    If you'll consent at once to marry me.
       St. Geo. I do consent so that you don't object
    To grant what modern husbands now expect.
       Kab. Of course, my love!  What may your wishes be?
       St. Geo. Oh!  a cigar in-doors, and a latch key!
       Kab. The former is a secondary matter,
    But there's a deal of mischief in the latter.
    Latch keys cause men without restraint to roam;
    For there's no knowing when they do get home.

The miseries of royalty:--

       Pto. Silence!  What!  can't my majesty walk out
    But after me you raise this horrid rout!
    Upon my daughter's nerves I'm sure it jars:
    The soldiers all seem bravos or hussars.
       Sab. You're right, papa; I dread the cannon's roar:
    ‘Tis the old dose, "the powder, as before,"
    A princess now, no matter if it suits her,
    Can't move, but some artillery man salutes her.

An insurance-office:--

       St. Geo. Is this the office?  yes, I'm pretty sure it is--
             [Seeing Dragon]
    Oh!  I beg pardon; do you buy securities?
       Dra. Why that depends on what they are, young man,
    I'm willing to do business if I can;
    For anything I'll give a price that's fair,
    From an old coat up to a Railway share!
       St. Geo. I've coal shares, sir, in the Talacre concern,
    Such coals you'll find, there regular bricks to burn.

The Portland Vase affair:--

       Pto. Off with the Dragon's head, its proper place
    Is the Museum, under a glass case.
       St. Geo. If as a curiosity they take it
    To the Museum, somebody may break it.

The piece entirely successful, and reflects great credit upon all parties concerned in its production.  The applause, when the curtain fell, was genuine and continuous; and Miss Woolgar, Mr. Wright, and Mr. Paul Bedford, were called for, and loudly welcomed by the audience.

Our illustration will be best accompanied by a quotation from the libretto:--

    St. Geo.The lady's hand sure prize enough will be--
                (about to take Sabra's hand)
    Alm.(interferes)
    Hollo!  young man, you'll take that after me.

    DUET.--ST. GEORGE AND ALMIDOR.

    St. Geo.

    I'll thank you to mention, if it's your intention,
       In that lady's affection my rival to be?
    For if it is sir, I'll only say this, sir,
       Consider you're horsewhipp'd this moment by me.

    Alm.

    ‘The lady has taste, sir, she'll ne'er be disgraced, sir,
       By wedding with one who's so horribly vain.
    So pray, sir, take warning, or else, some fine morning,
       ‘Twill be pistols for two, so don't do it again.

    Both.

    Don't, &c.

Title:Poole, John as Paul Pry
Description:Poole, John.: Paul Pry by John Poole.  Benefit performance for Edward Wright playing the title character for the first time.  The Illustrated London News judged him to be "second only to the great original [John] Liston."

ADELPHI THEATRE.

Mr. Poole's very neatly-written play of "Paul Pry," revived at this theatre, for the benefit of Mr. Wright, has been repeated during the week with increased effect.  Mr. Wright's personation of the village Marplot, is second only to the great original, Liston; whose ubiquitous umbrella, and "I hope I don't intrude," are here transmitted to us with almost unimpaired lustre.
