“Mr Lingard continues to be the great attraction at the Theatre Comique, where his entertainment is attracting crowded audiences. Lew Brimmer, one of the best banjo players that corks-up, reappeared on the 14th. A slight change occurred in the management of this house last week, Sam Sharpley disposing of his interest—which extends to the first of May—to Sandy Spencer, at which time the present lease expires, and the probability is another popular Broadway manager will become interested in this establishment.”
