“How the people roar with laughter at Bulter’s American Theatre and look with bewilderment on the interminable bill presented to them this week! Vivian and Thompson are ‘bright particular meteors,’ and the name of the novelties is legion.”

Announcement: New York Clipper, 26 November 1867, 262.

“Charles Vivian, comic vocalist, from the principal music halls of London, Eng., makes his debut in this country at Butler’s American Theatre, this evening. The company at present engaged at this establishment is a most efficient one, and pleases the audience, judging by the applause bestowed upon each act. Business was very good last week, the house being crowded several evenings.”
