Seasonal Digest

Short runs and frequent changes of bills characterized the 1854-55 season during which Adelphi manager Benjamin Webster sought to present plays that would win the approval of his audience and the critics.  Disagreements arose among the critics about the worthiness of certain pieces, and audiences were divided amongst themselves in their opinions.  In fact, reviewers criticized not only the Adelphi productions but also the tastes of its spectators during the 321-performance season.

Dion Boucicault's Janet Pride received almost unanimous approval from audiences and critics alike when it opened on February 4, 1855.  This play showcased the talents of the Adelphi's co-managers.  Webster's portrayal of Richard Pride received praise from all quarters.  Henry Barton Baker summarized critical opinion when he wrote,

Richard Pride is only a very ordinary melodramatic part, but as played by Webster it was an elaborate psychological study; Richard Pride is drunk almost throughout the play, but there was no monotony in Webster's performance, for in each scene he gave a different phase of the vice (p. 430).

The Theatrical Journal found Céleste's performance equally compelling writing, "Mme. Céleste...shows herself an accomplished melodramatic actress throughout the piece, but in the scene where she parts with her child, she rises far above this level, and her wild despair belongs to the highest order of pashionate [sic] expression" (February 14, 1855).  The Athenæum's critic found Boucicault's script particularly praiseworthy:  "Janet Pride is a kind of dramatic novel, dealing with old materials and incidents, but trusting for their effect to a new and startling combination" (February 10, 1855).  Audiences agreed with the critics regarding the company's success with Boucicault's script; they supported a sixty-four-night run.

Equally successful at the box office was Bona Fide Travellers; or, The Romance of the New Beer Bill, which failed to receive wide critical acclaim.  Grounded in the contemporary issue of temperance and the passage of a Beer Bill by Parliament, William Brough's farce consisted of "a mere tissue of absurdities loosely strung together," according to the Times (October 31, 1855).  The Theatrical Journal's writer attributed the play's success and "éclat" to the performances of Robert and Mary Ann Keeley (November 8, 1855).  In this, he concurred with the Athenæum critic who noted that "the power to support broad farce, without 'overstepping the modesty of nature,' is the special gift of the Keeleys" (November 4, 1854) and the Times writer, who felt that piece was "solely rendered attractive by the acting of Mrs. Keeley."

The Athenæum reviewer used this production as an occasion to comment upon the tastes of the Adelphi's audience as well as the talents of its actors.  He cynically forecast the play's popularity, writing, "In pieces of this sort the public are easily satisfied.  If the intention be obvious, they dispense with plot and probability, and are content with strong situations."  This prediction proved accurate; the show ran for sixty-three nights.

The next most popular play of the season, Railway Belle by Mark Lemon, received little notice in the press.  During the months of November, December, and January, the farce was played fifty-six times.  Its cast included Charles Selby, James Rogers, Mrs. Stocker, and Miss Wyndham.  By contrast, The Summer Storm by Tom Parry failed to please both critics and audiences.  The Times critic had anticipated a "real Adelphi piece" after having endured a series of adaptations from the French stage, but the play did not fulfil his expectations.  He wrote, "On the fall of the curtain the success of the piece was, for a time, rather equivocal, for though the applauders were a large majority the dissentients were perservering" (October 20, 1855).  The Athenæum writer complained the piece was "scarcely worthy to take rank with [Parry's] The Harvest Home," commenting "nothing takes place in the manner proposed, and, accordingly, the audience suffer one disappointment after another, until, at the end, they are thoroughly dissatisfied" (October 28, 1855).The  Summer Storm vanished from the boards after only nine performances.

One month later, Céleste and Webster met further audience and critical opposition when they premiered Slow Man by the celebrated farceur, Mark Lemon.  The Athenæum scorned the production in its November 25, 1854, review saying "the actors pushed the absurdity with which they were entrusted to the utmost limits."  The Times was even less charitable, calling the play "an attempt to amuse the public by maintenance of a perpetual 'row' upon the stage" (November 17, 1854).  He conceded that it "occasionally becomes amusing," but argued "Mr. Keeley's part is faintly sketched, and mere noise, without some notion at the bottom of it, is scarcely sufficient even for farce."  He reported that the audience's reaction was supportive but noted dissent among them:  "Mr. Keeley succeeded in announcing the piece for repetition amid much applause...but the opposition party was vigourous, and would not be conquered without a sharp struggle."  No-one should be surprised to learn the show played for only nineteen performances.

Finally, Dion Boucicault garnered praise from the Athenæum and the Times with Pierre The Foundling, a drama based upon George Sand's novel, Francois-le-Champi.  The Times conceded that while the play was "no Adelphi drama," it presented "pictures of human life, as contemplated under somewhat exceptional aspects" (December 14, 1855).  The acting received special notice from the Athenæum, which singled out Sarah Woolgar's portrayal of Marie as "extraordinary for the minuteness of its detail and the expressiveness of its general action" and described Benjamin Webster's performance of Pierre as "remarkably lifelike" (December 16, 1854).  Despite these positive assessments, the Times questioned the Adelphi audience's ability to appreciate such a subtle piece and wrote, "Whether the attempt to inure an Adelphi audience to pieces of such a simple outline, and so thoroughly intellectual in their character, will prove successful in the long run we cannot say, but certainly the attempt is highly creditable on the part of Mr. Webster."  Indeed, the play, like so many others offered during the 1854-55 season, did not satisfy its Adelphi spectators; it closed after only seventeen performances.

Illustration: The Slow Man  [1st Performance Nov 16, 1854]


 
Title:The Slow Man
Description:The Slow Man by Mark Lemon.  Ned Crosswell (alias the Brentford Pet) was played by Sanders.
1st Performance:Nov 16, 1854

ADELPHI THEATRE.

THE SLOW MAN.

We give an illustration of the extraordinary scene in Mr. Mark Lemon's farce of "The Slow Man," in which the epic poet, who is the hero of the piece, is intruded upon by Hector Rackett and his friends of the fancy, with the pet-boxer, much to his personal disquiet, and altogether to the ruin of the great work which he had projected.  The headlong revelry of the situation is novel in stage incident and, had it been sufficiently prepared for, would have created for the drama in which it was introduced a permanent reputation.  As it is, it serves for a variety in stage-business, and presents an unusual group of characters.  The suggestion might be profitably adopted, and carried out in a higher class of piece, as a melodramatic accessory, to lighten the burthen of more important business.

Writers of drama have too great a tendency to run into routine; and thus it happens that one production resembles another too closely.  Combinations, like the present, drawn from real life, not only present novelty, but give vitality to situation.  Mr. Lemon is, therefore, to be commended for the boldness which he has shown in the invention of the incident.

"JANET PRIDE," AT THE ADELPHI THEATRE.

The above new piece, by Mr. Dion Bourcicault, professes to be in three acts; but as it has two prologues, after the manner of the French stage, it is really in five; or, in other words, is a trilogy, like the Greek dramas, or Shakspeare's [sic] "Winter's Tale" and "Pericles."  The drama is also ostensibly original and no doubt is so as a whole; but, in its parts, it is much indebted to "Marie Jeanne," the "Somnambula," the "Maid and the Magpie," &c.  In fact, the evident aim of the author has been to combine the most effective situations of many dramas, and thus to gain a novel force of a composite kind, instead of contenting himself with the more pure result of a single incident.  This coalition of points has been managed with undoubted cleverness; and a piece of accumulated interest, thoroughly elaborated, has been produced.  Mr. Webster was the hero, and a truly-difficult role had he to support--a man inebriate through five acts; and the different phases of the state constituted the variety, which he had to throw into the part.  For an actor so consummate this variety was sufficient; and the artistic manner in which the different phases and nuances were suggested or realised places Mr. Webster in a very high histrionic rank indeed.  The action of the piece altogether occupies twenty years.  It opens in Paris in 1834, when Richard Pride (Mr. Webster) is only twenty-eight years of age, and who, with his wife Jane Pride (Mdme. Celeste), resides in a garret in Paris, a refugee from English justice, still sacrificing all things to the love of brandy, though not without a heart and somewhat good-humoured withal.  His destitute wife is ultimately compelled to entrust her dying daughter to the Enfans Trouvés; an illustration of which scene accompanies this article.  The poor child is accordingly saved; but the frantic mother perishes amidst the winter's snow in the street, at the time that her drunken husband and his companions are passing.  By them, she is found dead; at the same moment, Pride is arrested for forgery.  Thus ends the first part.

Nineteen years afterwards, the second part presents the victim of drink in Australia with Black Jack (Mr. Paul Bedford).  Sparks of superior culture yet distinguish Pride from the baser character of his associate, who murders a returning soldier, Sergeant Grey (Mr. R. Romer), in the bush, for the sake of his money.  Pride immediately avenges the man's death; but takes possession of his cash and accoutrements, in order to pass under his name, enjoy his pension, and thus effect his own escape.  Thus armed, we find him in London in Greek-street, Soho, the member of the family of M. Bernard, a French watch-maker, formerly the friend of Jane Pride, and who has taken charge of her infant, Janet Pride (Mdme. Celeste), when discharged from the Foundling Hospital.  The Frenchman loves her as his own child, and makes her the companion of Sergeant Grey's daughter Minnie (Miss Keeley).  Pride intrudes into this happy domestic circle as Minnie's supposed father.  She has also a lover, in the French watchmaker's apprentice, Dicky Trotter (Mr. Keeley).  Minnie likewise has attracted the attention of George Heriot (Mr. G. Lee), the son of a goldsmith, and the very man whom Pride had defrauded.  Mr. Heriot entrusts a gold watch, set with diamonds, to Bernard's care, concerning which Janet, suspicious of the supposed Sergeant Grey's honesty, is exceedingly anxious.  Being a somnambulist, this anxiety haunts her slumbers; and, in her sleepwalking, she attempts to transfer the watch from a table-drawer to a safer cabinet.  But the criminal of the drama is on the spot, and abstracts the watch from the case during the attempted transfer, so that, when the former is missed, Janet's possession of the latter becomes evidence against her.  The poor girl is tried and convicted at the Old Bailey; when Pride, discovering that she is his own daughter, shoots himself, and, by his dying confession, clears the prisoner.  Mr. Keeley has an amusing part in Dicky Trotter, whose colloquy with the numerous kitchen clocks, which he has marred rather than mended--with his calculations about the mean time, and their different characteristics--suffices to send him into a profound sleep at the moment of the robbery.  His behaviour in court as a witness, because he was asleep in the apartment all the while, provoked many a laugh.  That a productian so various in interest, and so lifelike in character, should be successful was natural, and, acted with so much talent, indeed inevitable.  Mr. Webster has, moreover, earned our most unequivocal testimony to his extraordinary histrionic genius, in his successful assumption of the peculiar attributes that distinguish the hero of this new dramatic romance.

"MOTHER GOOSE'S FAIRY TALES."

The scene, which we have this week presented, has for its subject the contest between Miss Woolgar as Lively Jack, and Mr. Paul Bedford as the Wolf, in the story of "Red Riding Hood."  Mother Goose herself, admirably impersonated by Miss Wyndham, forms part of the group, with the heroine, so interestingly represented by Miss Mary Keeley.  The contest is most perseveringly maintained on the part of Miss Woolgar, who wins the triumph by indomitable and persevering energy.  The thorough-going air and spirit which this inimitable actress lends to all such characterisations require the exercise of a peculiar art, melodramatic in its basis, but not to be obtained without prolonged practice.  The art demands, indeed, the perfectly experienced actress; yet they are, after all, thankless parts.  But Miss Woolgar has, from the beginning, consulted the advantage of the theatre in preference to her own, and has, we believe, as she well deserves, found her private account in it.  The public are as much indebted to her for her kindness as for her talent.

Sadler's Wells.--

The courtesy of visiting each other's houses, now adopted by the managers of our theatres, is one that be accepted as the test of our present civilisation.  Mr. Webster and Madame Celeste make their appearance here, while Mr. Phelps is enjoying the honours of a guest on Mr. Creswick's boards.  The favourite Adelphi piece introduced to the Islington audience on Monday was well received The "Green Bushes" is a stock attraction in the Strand, and its merits are such as to command recognition wherever acted.  Madame Celeste's Miami is an interesting conception, romantically realised, and one which always displays the best points of this artiste's acting.  It touches the feelings with extraordinary power; and, aided by the situations which the dramatist has so adroitly contrived, enforces an irresistible appeal on the sympathies.  Madame Celeste evidently aimed on this occasion to commend her art to the judgment of an audience now so long accustomed to the highest drama; and her success was complete.

"HELPING HANDS" AT THE ADELPHI THEATRE.

As we have already remarked, the heroine and hero of Mr. Tom Taylor's last new play are 'Tilda (Mrs. Keeley), and William Rufus (Mr. Keeley).  Our artist has selected these two personages for Illustration.  The situation is that of mutual recognition--the first since their separation.  Both are now in a condition of honesty and have commenced a new course of life likely to lead to a prosperous issue.  Our picture, however, can but indicate the position--it cannot explain its moral spirit.  This demands the dramatist's dialogue.  Mr. Taylor's is peculiar.  He is no writer of light conversational, punning repartee, but indulges in rhetorical demonstration.  His characters talk logically.  There is much that is evidently scholastic in Mr. Taylor's composition.  There is, accordingly, considerable weight in his scenes, and the mind of the audience is set thinking; but somehow Mr. Taylor's logic serves him instead of wit, and the philosophical syllogism will often extort as hearty a laugh as the most exoteric jest.  There is an abundance of natural sentiment, however, at the bottom of all this brain-work, and Mr. Taylor constantly calls in the heart in support of the head.  This is particularly the case with 'Tilda, whose benevolence is sometimes too much for her honesty; but there is a souse of justice even in her wrong-doing which conserves her respectability.  As to Rufus, he is the very type of a shrewd, worldly-minded youth, whose knowledge of the wrong serves to keep him in the right.  He well knows the distinction between them, and is likely to keep out of harm's way, and on occasion to overreach the duper, paying him in his own coin, and taking the change out of him, with the high feeling of a retributive avenger.  Cunning delineations of this kind are all in Mr. Taylor's best manner; and these two characters will doubtless act as "the salt" of this especial drama, and preserve the more questionable portions of it from decay.  In them is the real living principle; the rest, it must be acknowledged, is somewhat too artificial for independent existence.
