“New songs By Tony Pastor.”

Review: New York Herald, 27 March 1866, ?.

“After the ‘variety’ portion of the programme, which comprised song, petite comedy and dance, a new and original drama, entitled Yankee Invention, was performed for the first time.  The piece which hinges on the adventures of a Yankee in Paris, is replete with ludicrous scenes, which did not fail last evening to draw down the house.”

Announcement: New York Clipper, 31 March 1866, 406.

“Tony is doing a good business just now, for which he should be very grateful, as managers generally have felt the depressing influences of Lent in an unwholesome degree.”
