The Season

The season opened in the newly renovated theatre. The improvements were practical as well as aesthetic. Dress-circle seats were presented with backs, slate stairs--replacing a hazardous ladder--connected the private boxes to the lobby, ventilation was improved, and two projecting walls were removed from the stage to facilitate management of scenery.

As usual, the Theatrical Times praised the decorations:

The decorations are very elegant and tasteful, and reflect great credit on Mr. Sang, who executed them from designs by Digby Wyatt ... it is an imitation of the royal French theatres in use during the reigns of Louis XIV and his successor. There is also a very beautiful curtain, representing a promenade in the gardens of the royal residence. The general colour of the house is buff, with occasional blue and green tints; the lining and fittings of the boxes are of rich crimson. The dome represents the blue sky, intercepted by a light trellised frame, interwoven with flowers, and divided into compartments; the panels of the boxes are made to correspond with the dome, the whole forming a scene of great beauty and elegance ... In a word, the entire proceedings deserve the greatest praise.

Manager Webster continued to provide the fare to which Adelphi audiences were accustomed. The season's long running pieces were a burlesque, The Enchanted Isle, with 93 performances, Slasher and Crasher, a farce with 82 performances, and another burlesque, Devil's Violin, which was presented 65 times.

Throughout most of the season, when new productions were mounted, they were by English authors, or, at the very worst, plagiarized from Shakespeare. Memory of the anti-French revolt of the previous season, however, may have waned, for in May of 1849, the very successful Devil's Violin--a burlesque of a French ballet--was introduced, and was soon followed in July by Webster's Royal Red Book, a translation of a French piece, which had been presented the previous year at the St. James's Theatre.

On 3 February 1849, an article in The Theatrical Times provided evidence that all was yet not well with London theatres in general, and with Webster's theatres in particular. Nominating Webster as the most eminent manager in London, the anonymous author offered the challenge, "Let us ask him, in the first place, when he has ever striven to cleanse the Augean impurities of the theatre; or whether he has not always tolerated them for the sake of filthy lucre. To encourage, or even to permit, the resort of prostitutes to a theatre, with a view to ply their polluted trade, what is it but to make the theatre a kind of brothel?" Further, there was still the problem of extortionate practices in seating arrangements. A ticket at the box office was only the first step; one then was expected to bribe the "surly janitors" who held the keys to the boxes. Finally, Webster's preference for the spurious over the legitimate drama was seen as a clear effort to line his pockets: "[He] has done more to comply with the vicious taste of an unsound portion of the public, in defiance of the rational and moral claims of the better part of the community, than any manager living." The writer concluded with a plea that Webster pursue a "right course," and with a threat that "if otherwise, we shall lament the defection of one who might prove such an able assistant in the cause of the legitimate drama."

Illustration: The Enchanted Isle; or, Raising the Wind on the Most Approved Principles  [1st Performance Nov 20, 1848]


 
Title:The Enchanted Isle; or, Raising the Wind on the Most Approved Principles
Description:The Enchanted Isle; or, Raising the Wind on the Most Approved Principles by William and Robert Brough. A burlesque based on Shakespeare's "The Tempest."  Miranda was played by Marian A. Taylor.
1st Performance:Nov 20, 1848
Theatre:Adelphi

Review:The Illustrated London News, Dec 2, 1848, p. 352

 

The ADELPHI is, we expect, just at present doing better than any other theatre in London--Mr. O. Smith's Prospero, in the new burlesque, being pronounced a very fine performance, if not altogether an 'interpretation' (as the new critical word goes) of Shakspeare's [sic] character.  And when the audience have, in addition, to laugh for a full hour at Mr. Wright in "Slasher and Crasher," it is wonderful how they eventually survive.

We have engraved one of the most striking scenes in the new burlesque in which Prospero (Smith) and Ferdinand (Miss Woolgar) are in the ascendant; and the lofty magician has just exercised the potency of his wand.

ADELPHI THEATRE.

No novelty was required at this theatre, on Tuesday, with the attractions of the only version of the "Haunted Man" and the last burlesque--the "Enchanted Isle." The house was as crowded as it always is; but where every night at this lucky theatre appears to be a Boxing Night [December 26], there is little to remark upon.

We have engraved the great comic scene of Tetterby (Mr. Wright), with his "almost any amount of small children you may please to name." The scene is Tetterby's arkite room, at the back of his shop.  Mr. Wright's performance is a piece of rich humour throughout, with little or no exaggeration, though the character is a tempting one.  The infantine folks never fail upon the stage; and in this case, their freaks, combined with their father's drollery, form a lively relief to the piece.  But the best accompaniment to this scene is the extract from Mr. Dickens's work--a truly Bozzian scene, quoted in our Number of last week.

Illustration: Cockneys in California  [1st Performance Feb 26, 1849]


 
Title:Cockneys in California
Description:Cockneys in California by Joseph S. Coyne.
1st Performance:Feb 26, 1849
Theatre:Adelphi
Source:The Illustrated London News, Mar 3, 1849, p. 141
Review:The Illustrated London News, Mar 3, 1849, p. 141

 

ADELPHI THEATRE.

Mr. Coyne is always on the alert for a prevailing topic, which he seizes, puts in a dramatic shape, and brings out upon the Adelphi stage before the nine days' popularity allotted to a wonder have elapsed.  If there is no great care evinced in the construction or writing of these bagatelles, yet they answer their ephemeral purpose admirably; and "Cocknies [sic] in California," introduced to the public on Monday, at the above house, will be no exception to the general rule.  There is little or no story in it, but Mr. Paul Bedford is the emigrated Captain of a Gravesend steamer; Mr. Munyard is a travelling schoolmaster; Mrs. F. Matthews is his wife; and Mr. Mitchinson is a monkey.  All these characters are found in California at the "diggings," and go through a variety of distressing adventures, until at last they determine upon returning home with a lump of gold.  The farce concludes with a dance of all the nations assembled at the Sacramento, in which English, Irish, Scotch [sic], Niggers [sic], and Chinese each give a characteristic pas, all ultimately joining in a scramble to the tune of "Yankee Doodle."  No time is allowed to the audience to think about what they are seeing; so they laugh, and applaud, and tell their friends to go, and the Adelphi is crowded.

ADELPHI THEATRE.

The continued success of "The Hop-Pickers," and the farce of "Who Lives at No. 9?" rendered unnecessary the production of any Easter novelty; the manager wisely resolving to let well alone.  The only change is the reproduction of the "Enchanted Isle," the raciness of which is as heartily relished as ever.

"The Hop-Pickers" is a genuine Adelphi drama, with many excellent situations and incidents, very neatly put together; and its success is well merited by author, actors, and those concerned in producing the piece.

We have engraved the closing scene of the first act.  In the centre of the picture, Vivian (Madame Celeste), has recognised in Hester Leyton (Miss Woolgar) her long-lost sister; while Brian Callum (Mr. O. Smith), a returned convict, discovers in Maurice Gavelling (Mr. H. Hughes) the proprietor of the hop-grounds, and guardian of Hester, a former companion at the hulks, who, having escaped, has assumed respectability.  On the opposite side, Restless Wriggle (Mr. Wright), who has joined the hop-picking party, is expressing his envy at the recognition, and wishing he also could find a sister as affectionate.  The other characters are the party of hop-pickers, who are making merry on the occasion; some of the groupings, by the way, are very picturesque.  The scene, painted by Pitt and Johnstone, is remarkably real and effective, reminding one of what appears but to have been of late years admitted by travellers--that the hop-grounds of Kent exceed in luxuriant beauty the boasted vineyards of "the sunny South."
