     “It is to be hoped that Miss Ada and Miss Emma Webb will be afforded an opportunity to do something better during their engagement.  The dancing of Miss Millie Fowler and Miss Theresa Wood, with the splendid choruses of the grotesque German band receive nightly deserved encores.”

Review: New York Clipper, 11 August 1866, 142.

     “Considering the season, the spectacle is doing moderately well. In healthier times this piece would give a far healthier look to the treasury department of the establishment. . . . There is much to please the eyes in the ‘Ice Witch,’ as well as to interest the understanding.”

Review: New York Post, 11 August 1866, 2.

     “[W]ith its multifarious attractions of scenery, tableaux, ballets, choruses and songs, [it] is still as successful as during its first week”
