“John F. Poole, the ‘indefatigable,’ having recovered the time used in writing the ‘Scottish Chiefs,’ has once more turned his unfailing pen to the composition of sensational pieces for Tony Pastor’s. Next week will be brought out a new drama, entitled ‘Life in the Empire City; or, New York in a Nutshell.’”

Review: New York Herald, 14 September 1869, 3.

“The bill presented at Tony Pastor’s last night was, in every sense of the word, a huge one. The programme was full of good things and the house was densely crowded by a large audience, which thoroughly enjoyed the various performances. Tony knows how to cater for his patrons, and as a consequence they always turn out in large numbers to support him, taking care, however, to have both quantity and quality for their money. The programme last night included songs by the worthy manager, under the title of ‘Rhymes for “The Times.’ Miss Maude de Lasco, a new face at this place of amusements, appeared for the first time and sang some serio-comic songs, which were well received, and Jem Brimmer went through some of his favorite banjo solos…” No more about music.
