Gives the play as The Duke’s Request; or, The Hunchback and the Swordsman, by E.F. Taylor.“It was brought out here for the first time on the 22nd, and differs in many respects from that which John Brougham wrote from the original romance of Feval.And yet in several of the scenes we discover that the language is identical.”The acting gets mixed reviews.No mention of music.
