The Season

During the 1850-51 season, the London Times declared the Adelphi Theatre "the most popular theatre of the metropolis" with the "best company in London" for its purpose (July 17, 1851). The season boasted performances by Edward Wright, Paul J. Bedford, Sarah Woolgar, O. Smith, George Honey and H. Hughes. Samuel A. Emery, son of the actor John Emery, and grandson of the country actor Mackle Emery, also joined the company. Samuel Emery seldom stayed long at any one theatre, perhaps because he had a violent temper. He appeared in 1851 and again in the mid-1870s at the Adelphi. His line was, like his father's, in old men and rustics. Managers Benjamin Webster and Céline Céleste led the company in nineteen comedies, nine dramas, two burlesques and one burletta.

The Times praised Webster and Céleste's management skills:

In badly managed theatres, when the company is weak it is common enough to see the same persons fill every conceivable part. However, the Adelphi is no theatre of this kind.... [O]ne great talent in the managers consists in the power of discerning and applying the peculiar capabilities of each individual artist. It is the last theatre in the world where an actor would be made to shuffle through what another could do infinitely better, just for the sake of saving an engagement. Strong casting is the very principle of Adelphi management.

The wide-ranging talents of the Adelphi Company provided the theatre with a successful 301-performance season.

The season's most successful production, Mark Lemon's farce, School for Tigers; or, The Shilling Hop, opened on October 28, 1850, and was repeated seventy-nine times. The Times critic described the production as "an unequivocal success" and singled out Sarah Woolgar for particular praise (October 29, 1850). He described her Tom Crop as "absolutely refreshing," writing "her performance has none of the trickiness in which actresses sometimes indulge when attired in male habiliments." Sarah Woolgar's talents were celebrated frequently throughout the season as she appeared in both comic and melodramatic roles. After her benefit on July 16, the Theatrical Journal wrote that her "deserved popularity is exceeded by few artistes on the modern stage" (July 17, 1851), while the Times noted that her performances in The Road to Ruin, The School for Tigers, and Good Night! Signor Pantalon displayed the actress' versatility. This critic proclaimed, "she is one of the most popular actresses in the most popular theatre in the metropolis" (July 17, 1851).

Also popular during the 1850-51 season were Edward Wright and Paul Bedford, two longstanding members of the company. Bedford appeared in nineteen productions, receiving special notice from the Theatrical Journal in Jessie Gray where he "shewed he could please an audience, independent of acting with Wright" (November 21, 1850). Wright played in fifteen shows, including the popular School for Tigers, during which he gave "an admirable representation of vulgar pomp" (Times, October 29, 1850).

George Honey and H. Hughes attracted the special attention of critics and audiences. Of Honey's performance in Jessie Gray, the Times critic wrote that he "delivered his words with a quaintness that quite took the audience by surprise. Such a success as he achieved last night is enough to make an epoch in an actor's career" (November 21, 1850). Hughes was cited as a "melodramatist of great intelligence" in the same production (Times) and was said to have "acted with remarkable power and judgment" in Thomas Parry's The Disowned, which was otherwise panned by the critics (Theatrical Journal, April 3, 1851).

Despite an illness, which kept him from the stage for part of the season, Benjamin Webster contributed significantly to the season's success through his management, performances, and playwriting. His play, Belphegor the Mountebank; or, The Pride of Birth, an adaptation of the popular French drama, Paillasse, received praise for its excellent mise en scene and "singularly beautiful" costumes (Theatrical Journal, January 23, 1851) and ran for fifty-eight nights. Webster's performance as Belphegor was singled out by an unidentified critic quoted on the playbill who exclaimed, "Too much praise can scarcely be awarded to Mr. Webster for the intense pathos he throws into the situations" (NN bill, January 13, 1851). Webster scored a similar dramaturgical success at the end of the season with his adaptation of The Man in the Iron Mask, called The Queen's Secret. The Times critic pointed out that the script's defects (a result of having been adapted from an opera libretto) were "more than counterbalanced by the striking situation when Roland is captured after the interview with his mother and the very great ingenuity of the denouement" (September 9, 1851). Webster's acting was also cited by the Theatrical Journal as "highly successful" (September 10, 1851).

Webster's co-manager, Céline Céleste, continued to be a favorite with the press and the public. She appeared in twelve productions during the season, including revivals of Buckstone's Green Bushes and Flowers of the Forest and Boucicault's Willow Copse. Her performance of the title role in Jessie Gray and her interpretation of the breeches role, Roland, in The Queen's Secret attracted the special attention of critics. In the former (by Robert Brough and John Bridgeman) Céleste's performance was "remarkable for the purity of its style and pathos," according to the Theatrical Journal (November 21, 1850). Of the latter, the same publication noted that the role Webster had written for her was "admirably calculated to shew off her great versatility of talent" (September 10, 1851). Céleste also directed the Christmas production, La Tarantula; or, The Spider King, receiving praise from the press for the play's extravagant scenery and beautiful effects. Upon her departure for America at the end of the season, the Times commented upon the effectiveness of her management, saying, "as a manager, she has displayed the rare merit of conducting an establishment for eight years without any recourse to the 'star system'" (September 9).

THE NEW DRAMA OF "JESSIE GRAY," AT THE ADELPHI.

A piece, consisting of superior elements, and well constructed, the joint production of Mr. Robert Brough and Mr. Bridgman [sic], was produced on Monday.  The materials are for the most part familiar to the dramatic student.  Jessie Gray, who gives name to the piece (Madame Celeste), is the supposed daughter of an apothecary, who rejoices in the complimentary title of Dr. Gray (Mr. O'Smith), and who becomes beloved by the nephew of a haughty baronet.  The former (Mr. Boyce) courts her in the disguise of an artist; the latter (Mr. Hughes), to wean the boy from Jessie, contrives a plot for the ruin of her fame, which is effected after the pattern of Don John and Hero, in "Much Ado About Nothing." The Baronet succeeds in his object; but, to "make assurance doubly sure," resolves on removing the humble object of his love out of reach.  Just at this juncture, however, he discovers that Jessie is none other than his own child, and is then, consequently, as eager to unite the lovers as he was previously to separate them.  There is, of course, a comic underplot, which consists of scenes between the apothecary's assistant (Mr. Honey) and his sweetheart (Miss Fitzwilliam) - the former a rascal with a conscience which renders him ridiculous.  The part was acted with much grotesque humour, and, by his manner of acting it, justified himself in assuming a higher position than he has yet held.  The success of the piece was decided; and the two authors had, as usual, to bow from the box to the gratulations of the audience.

ADELPHI.

Here Mr. Albert Smith presents us with "The Tarantula; or, the Spider-King."

The piece opens with a scene, representing the Realm of Reptiles, in which Spiderion, the King of the Spiders, and other unearthly objects, are brought into notice, so as to constitute a Monster Meeting, which is terminated in a skilful manner by its transformations into a cloud.  In a subsequent scene, the height of the ridiculous is attained in a "coaching incident," in which a car is introduced, drawn by horses made of boys, two to each horse.

Luigi (Miss Woolgar) is the victim of the tarantula receiving what is supposed to be a fatal bite, and, on the strength of this belief, Luigi's betrothed, Loretta (Madame Celeste) is affianced to Dr. Omeopatico (Mr. Wright), but Luigi's recovery slightly deranges this secondary arrangement, and restores the status quo.  In the course of the piece, "the village in flames" furnishes opportunity for a very brilliant and effective scene.

The illustration is a most effective tableau of the principal characters.

ADELPHI.

The Parisian drama of "Paillasse," by MM. Dennery and Marc Fournier, was produced on Monday, under the title of "Belphegor the Mountebank; or, the Pride of Birth." It has, of course, been much altered; and is, as announced, "of peculiar construction, full of powerful Adelphi effects."  Replete with business and excitement, the drama of "Belphegor" promises to be one of the most successful of the season.  The story is exceedingly complicated, and the persons are remarkably eccentric--such, indeed, as the Adelphi performer delights in.  Mdme. Celeste, Miss Woolgar, Mr. Webster, Mr. Bedford, and Mr. Wright were admirably fitted.  Mr. Webster himself was never seen to more advantage than in Belphegor, a wandering mountebank, who, beneath his absurd exterior and bombastic manners, assumed professionally as the means of living, has a good heart and a clear head, and cherishes, in particular, the domestic feelings.  His wife, Madeleine (Mdme. Celeste), appreciates his many excellent qualities, and his children love him with devoted affection.

The scene opens with a fair in the village of Montroulade, in honour of the restoration of the Bourbons in 1814; and here the mountebank arrives with his car, his Merryman and his family.  The sports of the fair being over, Belphegor and his wife are addressed by the Chevalier de Rolac (Mr. O. Smith), who informs them that Madeleine is the lost daughter of the Duke de Montbazon (Mr. H. Hughes), and coolly proposes that she and her children should forsake her husband, have her marriage dissolved and so become qualified for admission into her noble family.  The proposition is rejected with scorn and indignation.  But the Chevalier lays plans by which he ultimately prevails.  The faithful pair fly to their private lodgings at Angoulęme; but here the family emissary penetrates, and, coming at a time when the life of the daughter is despaired of by the mother, he induces Madeleine to accept the offer of the Duke, for the sake of the child.  Great is the despair of Belphegor. His son remains faithful to him; but both are in danger of starvation; for the Duke sends agents, by whom they are dogged from place to place, and by various persecutions deprived of the means of gaining their livelihood.  In the course of his wanderings, however, Belphegor arrives at the Duke's château, near Bordeaux, just at the moment that his Grace's guests are enjoying a Florentine fęte, and, being supposed to be one of the masqueraders, addresses them in character, and also performs some of his professional tricks, and finally receives money from the company, in order to carry out the supposed assumption to its natural conclusion.  In all this, he is prompted and assisted by one Nina Flora Aphrodite Stiltz (Miss Woolgar), who, like him, has a chance introduction into high life as the wife of Ajax, the "Merryman" (Mr. Wright), supposed to be the son of the Baron de Montroulade (Mr. Paul Bedford).  Thus supplied with means, and meeting with the Chevalier, from whom he wrings a confession, and some papers, Belphegor proceeds to the Duke's palace, in search of his wife, disguised as De Rolac.  He obtains the desired interview; but, it turning out that the Chevalier himself is a returned convict, of whom the officers are that instant in pursuit, and the delinquent's papers being found upon Belphegor, he (Belphegor) is arrested, and tried for a murder committed fifteen years ago. The Duke, though sure of his innocence and want of identity, encourages the prosecution, and all would go against him, but that the villain, De Rolac, finding a pardon has been obtained from the King (the object being, not to execute Belphegor, but to get him out of the way), comes forward to avow his personality.  It is then also discovered that Madeleine is not the Duke's daughter, but that Belphegor is really his son, brought up under similar circumstances.  The curtain accordingly falls on the happiness of all parties.

The performance is in every respect excellent, and the mise en scčne perfect.  Mr. Webster performed with a force, feeling, and finish, which entitle him to the rank of an artist of extraordinary power and skill.  We were also greatly delighted with Miss Woolgar.  The house was crowded; and the piece must prove immensely attractive. The illustration shows the opening scene of the drama.
