“The Saturday matinées of the “Black Crook” are to be resumed next Saturday.  In many instances new scenery and decorations, new persons and dances have been introduced in this piece, and studied improvements whenever practicable have been provided so as to impart to the representation now a freshness and piquancy which commend it as much to the habitués of the theatre as to the crowds of strangers who are just now arriving in New-York.”
