Bryants’ Minstrels have added “M. D., or the Grand Doctoress” to the title of their burlesque, “Lucrezia Borgia.” Their program has been changed and contains many new attractions.

Review: New-York Times, 05 October 1868, 5.

“The Bryants are flourishing produgiously at their new and beautiful establishment in East Fourteenth-street, next to the Academy of Music. They are not even deterred by the Democratic demonstration of to-night, but throw their doors open as widely as Tammany Hall itself. The enormously funny burlesque of ‘Lucretia Borgia’ is still the attraction, prefaced by new songs, scenes, dances, &c.”
