“First night of a new drama. . . . Taylor’s celebrated picture of everday English life, now achieving the most extraordinary success in London, having completed a run of two hundred nights.”  Mrs. Florence will play the character of Emily St. Evremond née Traddles Coryphée and will sing the German song, “Die Haus die Menten und Perlen.”

Review: New York Post, 01 December 1863, 2.

Longish review with no mention of the music.  “A full house greeted the Florences last night. . . . [The play] was produced with a good cast and excellent stage effects.”

Review: New-York Times, 03 December 1863, 8.

Long discussion of Tom Taylor and the play.  “The performance on the first night was generally good, and sufficed to win for the piece an emphatic and deserved success. . . . Mrs. Florence had an excellent part—a concert-room ballet girl, who assumes French airs—and played it uproariously.  The lady received an encore in Stigelli’s German song, ‘Die Schoensten Augen.’”

“’The Ticket of Leave Man’ produced with new music.”

Review: New-York Times, 07 December 1863, 5.
“At the Winter Garden, the ‘Ticket-of-Leave-Man’ has already proved to be a trump card for the management.  The attendance on Saturday was immense, and the piece will, probably, run through the entire engagement of Mr. and Mrs. Florence.  It is the best drama that has been produced in New-York for two years, and merits all the success it has achieved.”
