Play With Music
17 July 2014
“Last Three Nights . . . Wednesday, Last Night of the Summer Season.”
The “ghost” plays in New York may be going out of favor. Notes the end of the run of “ghost” plays at Wallack’s, which began on 08/04/63. The final two nights at Wallack’s will be 09/15/63 and 09/16/63.
“There are indications, however, that this ghost excitement has been run into the ground. . . [T]he people are thoroughly disgusted with the plays in which the ghosts are exhibited. Look at the play which has been running so long at Wallack’s, for instance. Seldom before have so poor a drama and such miserable acting as that of Mr. Watkins and that of his company been permitted in any Broadway establishment.”
