Play With Music
14 December 2019
“The French Theater will be reopened next Wednesday, it is announced, for a single performance of Sardon’s ‘Seraphine’—in the original French—by a company including [lists several actors]. An English adaptation of ‘Seraphine,’ made by Boucicault [sic], has been acted in London.”
“Sardon’s ‘Seraphine,’ which was to have been acted at the French Theater, will be brought out at the Academy of Music. Friday evening is to witness its representation.” Short note about the actors involved.
“One of the eccentricities of French character, and particularly of theatrical French character, was last evening exhibited by a number of ladies and gentlemen lately belonging to the troupes of Mr. Grau and Mr. Fisk, who produced ‘for one night only’ Sardou’s excellent comedy ‘Séraphine’…Why an elaborate and difficult play should thus have been carefully prepared, rehearsed and put upon the stage—above all the stage of the Academy of Music—with no purpose beyond that of a single representation, it passes our power to explain. Whatever the object, the performance was not without a certain success. The audience was fair in numbers…” Continues mostly positively; no mention of music.
