Performance Date(s) and Time(s)
23 Mar 1867, Evening
23 Mar 1867, Afternoon
The Winter garden burned down the morning of March 23, 1867, thus these performances did not take place. See Article on the destruction of the Winter Garden Theatre, 03/24/67.
Romeo and Juliet was to be performed in the afternoon, the remainder of the program here listed in the evening.
The New York Times announces this as “the first benefit in New-York of Mr. W.S. Andrews,” but the New York Clipper announces a performance on this day (probably that in the afternoon) as a benefit for Methua-Scheller. The New York Times also notes the imminent departure of Edwin Booth.
