“Bryants’ Minstrels are so pressed for room that they may be compelled to adopt the reserved seat system, charging 50 cents to the reserved portion of the house, and 25 cents to the unreserved.  If it will only give the habitués an inch or two more seating capacity, there will be no objection to the extra charge.”
