”THE PATRIOTIC DRAMA of ‘Bunker Hill,’ written by John F. Poole, expressly for Tony Pastor’s Opera House, was produced there on the 2d inst.  It is one of Mr. Poole’s best productions, and is replete with interest, illustrative as it is of ‘the times that tried men’s souls.’ The piece was carefully placed upon the stage, as all pieces are at this establishment, the scenery being new and very appropriate, also the costumes.  Tony Pastor as the Live Yankee had a character for which he is just suited, and did the role justice.  George McDonald’s make up for Washington was very good indeed.  T. G. Riggs as Teddy the Irishman was full of blunders as ever, and ready for a fight without a moment’s notice.  The rest of the characters were in good hands, and the play went off well, being applauded throughout.”
