The Season

The 1856-57 season began where the previous one concluded, by featuring the American actors, Mr. and Mrs. Barney Williams. These actors, who specialized in Irish and "Yankee" characters, virtually carried the Adelphi season with their farce presentations. Manager Benjamin Webster and director Céline Céleste appeared occasionally throughout the season, but provincial tours and illness kept them from playing regularly at the Adelphi. Their absence hindered the introduction of successful new pieces during the season.

By the start of the 1856-57 season, Mr. and Mrs. Barney Williams had established themselves as favorites among the London public. The Times wrote in February, 1857, that "whatever may be thought of the musical and poetical merits of such compositions as 'Bobbing Around,' 'Polly, Won't You Try Me-Oh?' and 'My Own Mary Anne,' they are important 'facts' with the London populace of the present day, and he who is not au courant with the words and the airs ... can scarcely be deemed on a level with his age" (February 3, 1857). Among their most popular offerings were Ireland As It Is, Barney the Baron, and Our Gal. These productions frequently elicited contradictory responses from London critics. While the reviewers never failed to praise the performances of Mr. and Mrs. Williams, they often deplored the quality of their material. Their season opener, for example, an extravaganza by an unknown playwright called Lucifer Matches; or, The Yankee ------, was scorned by the London Times critic. "If it be possible to conceive a drama in which nothing could be discovered but the positive incompetency of the playwright to realize the task which he had proposed," he wrote, "--then may this play ... be quoted as a 'cardinal and prerogative' example" (October 4, 1856). While he admitted that Barney Williams performed with his "usual humor" and that Mrs. Williams appeared "mighty handsome," he found the plot "stupid" and its treatment "imbecilic," warning the performers not to take advantage of the good will they had gained from the public by presenting substandard material. He concluded, "It is time that these clever artistes should learn that their peculiar pieces are not accepted on their merits, but purely as vehicles; if they regard them as more than ephemeral novelties, they will certainly incur a serious mistake."

A similar contradiction may be observed in the Theatrical Journal's response to the Williams after their return from a provincial tour in February 1857. On the 11th it wrote that "the quaint comicalities of the Down-East Girl, and the racy Hibernian humour of the Irish Boy, have lost nothing of their freshness and spirit by the absence of their admirable delineators" in response to their productions of Born to Good Luck and Customs of the Country. Yet Barney the Baron spawned outrage from the Theatrical Journal on Feb. 25. Its normally complimentary critic described the farce as "wretched, insufferable twaddle," decrying the audience's obvious enjoyment of the play. "We regret to add that there are roars of laughter when this Hibernian-American comedian throws potatoes about the stage," he scoffed and concluded, "It is likewise our painful duty to admit that a song about a shillelagh--and with about as fine a point ... is favourably received by an enlightened British public." The Times, on the other hand, found G. D. Johnson's In and Out of Place, a rewarding experience, writing on the morning after its opening "the versatility which Mrs. Barney Williams has hitherto displayed by acting in a variety of American pieces was last night shown in more concentrated form." He concluded by saying, "We have now, at last, something really attractive in American acting" (February 24, 1857).

Céline Céleste returned to the Adelphi with a production of Buckstone's Green Bushes on November 3, 1856. Two weeks later she premiered Charles Selby's burlesque, The Elves, which received enthusiastic notices from the critics. The Athenćum proclaimed, "The poetic idea which serves for the basis of this piece, lends an air of fantastic elegance to the superstructure; and, though burlesque in its general action, the taste pertaining to the theme has banished from the text the intrusion of pun and parody" (November 22, 1856). The beauty of the play's spectacle also attracted critical attention. The Times wrote that the play had been "very effectively put upon the stage" (November 18, 1856) and the Athenćum said, "What particularly strikes the spectator is the beauty of the costumes, scenery, and ballet-action."

Among the few premieres of the season were the Christmas pantomime, Mother Shipton, Her Wager; or, Harlequin Knight of Love and the Magic Whistle, A Night at Notting-Hill, and Fearful Tragedy in the Seven Dials. Of these, A Night at Notting-Hill, written by N. H. Harrington and Edmund Yates (son of former Adelphi manager Frederick Yates), was by far the most popular with eighty-nine performances. A week after its opening on January 6, 1857, the Theatrical Journal declared, "The Adelphi, the Surrey, the Strand, and other theatres of minor importance have not lessened their status, so far as we have seen one iota. The first named has produced a succession of good sterling dramas" (January 14, 1857).

Céline Céleste's benefit attracted special attention from the critics with its premiere of Dion Boucicault's drama, George Darville. Noting that "it is some time since a piece has been produced so fully corresponding to the idea of an 'Adelphi drama'," the Times called the play "a skillfully contrived and effective work" (June 4, 1857). The Theatrical Journal agreed, writing, "in construction and dialogue it is very nearly perfect, while in the delineation of character it is not surpassed by many modern productions" (June 10, 1857). Benjamin Webster developed the title role "with the close observance of nature in the most minute details" (Theatrical Journal) and all the other performances were "acted with singular ability," according to the Times. The play did not achieve the overwhelming success predicted by the critics, however, and ran for only twenty-five nights.

The season concluded with a commemoration of the popular playwright Douglas Jerrold. His Rent Day, featuring T. P. Cooke and Céline Céleste, played for ten nights. Productions of Black-Eyed Susan followed and The Pilot closed the season on October 3, 1857.

ADELPHI THEATRE.--"THE ELVES."

Last week, we had the pleasure to record the complete success of the new ballet-burlesque at the Adelphi; and we now give a representation of one of the many striking scenes in the piece.  Madame Celeste deserves every commendation for the manner in which she has placed this pretty piece upon the stage.  The manager is fortunate in having had a directress of such taste and ability to control the lavish expenditure incurred in the production of "The Elves."  Silvia could not have had a more poetical exponent than Madame Celeste.  Wright and Mrs. Keeley have one really good scene and play it admirably.  Miss Kelly and Paul Bedford have no great opportunity for display, but they add much to the general effect of the piece; whilst Miss Wyndham, as the Prince Jolijambe, acts as well as she dresses--which is saying a great deal for one who is so careful in matters of costume as that young lady.  "The Elves" must draw large audiences up to Christmas.

General Non-Title Information

The Harvard bill is dated "Monday, Nov. 24th, 1856," but we assume it also covers the 25th. and 26th. It states "Due to Leigh Murray's illness, Novel Expedient and Border Marriage are replaced by Good Night Signor Pantalon and Domestic Economy." Since neither of the former two pieces was played later this season, we assume Murray did not recover in time to perform again

ADELPHI.

This theatre deservedly takes credit to itself for having originated the composite entertainment of burlesque-pantomime now generally adopted in preference to pantomime pure and simple.  As public taste improves, public amusements aim at a higher and yet higher mark; and Christmas pieces are projected upon a scale of literary expense as well as scenic splendour little thought of in ruder periods.  The pantomime opening is no longer abandoned to the mere writer of doggerel but shows marks of careful authorship, and aspires to mythological importance never dreamed of in former days.  Not only the requirements of the nursery have to be consulted, but those demands which the advanced intellect of the adult portion of the audience make on the talents of those who expect the patronage of the intelligent.  Accordingly, a meaning must be implied in the extravagance committed, and a deep significance lies in the ostensible absurdity, which only the shallow would regard as merely intended to excite thoughtless laughter.  The introductions to the Christmas pantomimes at the Adelphi have been characterised by singular elegance and have included a combination of classic and romantic allusion which has been exceedingly graceful and judicious.  Instruction and amusement have gone hand-in-hand and cooperated in producing a result by which the mind of the spectator has been stimulated and improved.  The pantomime of this season, "Mother Shipton, her Wager; or, Harlequin Knight of Love and the Magic Whistle," blends the various delightful elements to which we have alluded.  The general story we have already set forth in our previous Number; and the reader must have been impressed by the delicacy of the fable, which opposes moral and magical agencies and gives the triumph to the former.  In working out this amiable purpose, a beautiful visionary spectacle is presented, in a series of finely-painted scenes, in which all is in harmony with the leading idea, which is further illustrated by some subordinate imaginings of a subtle poetic character, for which the audience are indebted solely to the prodigality of the writer's talent, and which are not generally provided or expected in compositions of the sort.  Madame Celeste and Miss Wyndham, as Sir Beau and Constance, present two moving Watteau portraits which are perfectly charming; and the scenes that they move among--from the coast of Normandy to the scene in China, where Harlequin and Columbine descend on the stage invested with the delicate honours of porcelain, and looking for all the world like an animated Dresden vase--are all appropriately distinguished for their fitness to unite in one pleasing impression that an exquisite invention has been diligent to bring together the choicest of its treasures, and excite those emotions which are only experienced when a true work of art is witnessed and recognised as "a thing of beauty."  The legend of "Leda and the Isle of Naxos" is especially of this character; and the fairy herself is sweetly portrayed by Miss Keeley, who in these ideal creations always acts in sympathy with the mind of their author.  The scene presented in our illustration is of remarkable brilliancy, but the taste displayed in its conception and arrangement is at least equal to the splendour of its appointments.  The same refined and chastened taste is exhibited throughout the harlequinade, in which the tricks are not of the usual accidental character; but many of them evidently proceed from a more intellectual range of wit than is generally brought to bear upon the chances and changes of the pantomimic scene.  When, also, we consider that actors, not pantomimists, condescend to such characters as Clown and Pantaloon, which are impersonated by Mr. Garden and Mr. Moreland, and that Harlequin and Columbine have Madame Celeste herself and Miss Wyndham for their representatives, it will be readily conceived that not alone a mere material vehicle of whim has been provided, but that the whole realised and animated by intellectual capacity of high histrionic rank.  Thus supported the Adelphi piece is secure of a prolonged existence.

Theatre Management And Functionaries Commentary

A manuscript note on the New York reel states: "from March 2nd to 14th inclusive, Mme. Céleste was removed from the bills: on the 16th she was again announced as 'Directress.' There had been a quarrel between her and the 'Prprietor' and scandalous people affirmed that the withdrawal of Miss Kate Kelly at Easter had something to do with the reconciliation."
