“Grand Gala Week – Everything New”

Review: New York Herald, 08 November 1867, 3.

“Butler’s American theatre has an attractive bill this week. Johnny Thompson is the musical darkey of the establishment; the elves of the forest, headed by Mlle. Zuccoli, dance a fairy ballet, and a pantomime introduces the audience to dreamland and the moon.”

Announcement: New York Clipper, 09 November 1867, 246.

“This week J.W. Barrett and Julia Marion, from England, make their debut in this country in the burlesque of ‘Il Trovatore.’ Frank Kerns, the popular song and dance performer, also appears. David Braham resumes his seat in the orchestra. Mr. Braham was with Mr. Butler for six years, but has been engaged elsewhere this past season. The ‘Shadow Pantomime’ is revived this week.”
