     “For thirty weeks Mr. Wood managed this establishment with considerable ability, introducing to the New York public several very clever actors and actresses who had been refused engagements at any other Broadway establishment.  As we stated some time ago, Mr. Wood has disposed of the remainder of his lease to a party, and after the engagement of the Hanlons the theatre will be run for German performances.”
