Review: New York Clipper, 10 February 1866, 350.

     “The rush for seats was tremendous, and long before the curtain rose there was not a seat to be had in that vast auditorium. This was just as it should have been, for a more liberal manager [than Lingard] the East side of the town has never seen; and one who studies more to please his patrons, by constantly producing novelty, it would be hard to find.”
