Seasonal Digest

After a season of unsuccessful attempts to find a new play that would please the Adelphi audience, Benjamin Webster chose to "play it safe" during the 1855-56 season.  The offerings included a large number of revivals of plays, which had run successfully at other theatres in London and Paris.  Despite this distinct lack of originality in the repertory, royal patronage came to the Adelphi for the first time during Queen Victoria's reign.  Also, press reports revealed Webster sought to rebuild and expand the theatre, no doubt in response to the favorable attention paid by the press and the public to the Strand house.

The season opened on October 8, 1855, with Webster and director Céline Céleste touring the provinces.  The bills featured the Irish delineations of Hudson in Samuel Lover's Rory O'More and The White Horse of the Peppers.  Robert and Mary Ann Keeley also appeared early in the season in revivals of two of their earlier successes, Richard Peake's The One Hundred Pound Note and Valentine and Orson by Tom Taylor and Charles Kenney.  The Athenæum remarked upon the Adelphi's current policy of revivals, writing that it had been

productive among the journalists of much discriminative criticism between the model masterpieces of this class some quarter of a century ago and the French importations of the present day...Nevertheless, though the theme and characters be somewhat obsolete, there is a rough and racy nationality in the present production, which, we confess, we can yet enjoy.  (November 10, 1855)

On November 12, Céline Céleste returned to the theatre in William Bernard's Marie Ducange and on December 3, Benjamin Webster appeared for the first time during the season in Boucicault's Janet Pride.  The Theatrical Journal proclaimed on December 5 "the acting of Webster and Céleste is beyond all praise."

Among the most popular plays of the season were Mark Lemon's extravaganza, Domestic Economy, which ran for seventy-six nights, and Joseph S. Coyne's Urgent Private Affairs, which ran for eighty-four nights.  Neither play received much notice from the press, despite the fact that the latter was a premiere.  Two adaptations from French plays did receive attention from the critics.  The first was Like and Unlike by John A. Langford and W. J. Sorrell, which ran for fifty nights.  The Times reported "Mme. Céleste, alternating between the devoted innocent Lisette and the reckless Countess...produces the most striking and effective contrasts" and "the scenes...were excellent illustrations of a luxurious kind of life" (April 10, 1856).  The reviewer concluded by saying, "It is some time since we have had a new drama of serious interest at this favourite theatre, and we may congratulate the manager on resuming his old kind of business with such happy results."  The second piece was Molière's Tartuffe, a rare venture into the classics for the company.  The Times praised Webster's Tartuffe, Céleste's Elmire, Mary Ann Keeley's Dorine and Charles Selby's Orgon, and reported that the play had been revived "with great éclat" (December 19, 1855).

The season's most popular production was its Christmas pantomime, Jack and the Bean Stalk; or, Harlequin and Mother Goose at Home Again.  Its ninety-five-performance run attracted little attention from the press but did catch the fancy of Queen Victoria.  On Feb. 23, 1856, Her Majesty and the royal party attended a private performance of the pantomime in a specially redecorated theatre (see Times, February 25, 1856).  The Queen expressed her gratitude to Benjamin Webster after the performance, and by April 1st, she had let a Royal Box at the theatre (Times, April 4, 1856).  Following this change, she attended the Adelphi three times.  On April 11, a royal party attended to see Like and Unlike and Jack and the Beanstalk.  On April 17, Her Majesty's party arrived in time to see Urgent Private Affairs.  Again on May 5, the party attended the theatre for Like and Unlike, Urgent Private Affairs and How's Your Uncle?  Royal patronage most certainly added to the theatre's prestige among the critics, other professionals, and the public.

The Adelphi's success seems to have encouraged Webster to expand his operation.  The Times of January 3, 1856, announced the planned rebuilding and enlarging of the Adelphi.  In an advertisement, Webster proclaimed he had secured the entire freehold of the theatre and adjoining property.  He offered a limited number of debentures at five percent per annum and free admission to every performance to each debenture holder.  In late April, the Sunday Times announced that the current season would close in June, and the theatre would be demolished and a new building completed in December.  On June 22, 1856, the Sunday Times stated the plans for the new theatre were shortly to be submitted to the Commissioners of the Board of Works for approval.  That approval, for a building to be constructed entirely of iron and fireproof timber, was expected to be obtained without difficulty.  A month later, on July 25, Webster issued another extended sale of debentures, at the price of five hundred pounds each, again with interest of five percent and free lifetime admission to the theatre.  The original schedule was delayed, and Webster issued a statement that the rebuilding would proceed later than had been originally planned.

Instead of closing for The Season, Webster then engaged Mr. and Mrs. Barney Williams.  Having established themselves in the United States as delineators of the Irish and "Yankee Girl" types respectively, the Williamses undertook a successful engagement at the Adelphi.  Their productions included Customs of the Country, Irish Lion, Born To Good Luck, Our Gal, and Irish Assurance and Yankee Modesty.  The Times wrote of Barney Williams he had "a great deal of comic force" (July 2, 1856), and of Mrs. Williams, she "contents herself with a moderate degree of eccentricity, perfectly consistent with a natural expectation" (July 5, 1856).  The Athenæum critic recognized the Williamses' obvious popularity with the public but expressed doubts over the merit of their material:  "The American pieces with which they are connected meet with a certain sort of approbation—one more related to their novelty and adaptability of these unique artistes than their dramatic merits" (August 16, 1856).  Despite these critical reservations, the Williams couple closed out the 304-performance season on September 27, 1856.

ADELPHI THEATRE.

The Pantomime at this theatre is distinguished from the general character of these performances by the introduction of Madame Celeste as Harlequin, and she is a most graceful representative of the motley hero.  The Columbine is played by the pretty and clever Miss Wyndham; and those playgoers who only are acquainted with these ladies in connection with their more serious histrionic delineations will be greatly surprised and gratified at witnessing their Terpsichorean efforts.  The tableau selected by our artist is one of the most striking in the pantomime and represents a group, which might have been painted by Watteau.  It is the most charming stage-effect we have ever seen and should of itself at once attract public attention.  The Clown and Pantaloon are played by Mr. Garden and Mr. C. J. Smith--two gentlemen very favourably known to the frequenters of the Adelphi as actors of considerable merit, and who have, in conjunction with Miss Wyndham, upon this occasion gone out of their way to support their excellent directress in her new and arduous undertaking.

MR. AND MRS. BARNEY WILLIAMS, AT THE ADELPHI THEATRE.

In the rapid succession of novelties which Mr. Webster is ever providing for the patrons of the Adelphi Theatre, the reader will, we dare say, remember the names of Mr. and Mrs. Barney Williams, whose engagement was highly promissory of fun and humour and has been very successful.  We engrave their characteristic portraits from photographs by Mayall.  Mr. and Mrs. Williams are well known throughout the United States, having gained great popularity by their meritorious performances in their peculiar line of character.  They are known as the Original Irish Boy and Yankee Gal;--Mrs. Williams being the first to introduce that particular line of character on the stage known as "the down East Yankee help."  We have before had specimens of Yankee character in Dan Marble, Yankee Hill, Josh Silsbee, and others; but Mrs. Williams first introduced us to Yankee female character.  Mr. Williams is equally original in his line of Irish character.

On Monday night, the two-act comedy of "Born to Good Luck" was revived at the Adelphi Theatre, for the purpose of introducing Mr. Williams in the character of Paddy O'Rafferty. To those playgoers of the present generation who never saw Mr. Power in the same character, Mr. Barney Williams will unquestionably appear the best stage Irishman extant.  His brogue is deeper, richer, and, so to speak, more natural than that usually given: he speaks in a rich Corkonian dialect.  He has a nice singing voice and a light active figure, and was encored in a song called "The Flaming O'Flannigan;" while an Irish jig, which he danced with Miss Mary Keeley, was received with much applause.  Mr. and Mrs. Barney Williams take their benefit tonight (Saturday), when the lady appears in the Yankee farce of "Our Gal," which in the United States is considered her chef d'œuvre.
