Review: New York Herald, 16 February 1863, 8.
“Miss Bateman’s engagement at Niblo’s Garden has been prolonged for one week more, the audiences having fairly taken the house by storm. . . . [T]he play has been somewhat modified and improved. . . . Throughout [the first] four acts Miss Bateman is not great. . . . Her voice is harsh and monotonous, and her action ungraceful and stagy. In the fifth act, however, she redeems her reputation. Her voice, her action, her pantomime, are all touching.”
Review: New-York Daily Tribune, 16 February 1863, 8.
“[N]umerous [audiences] during the week just past.”
