The aim of this work is to provide the student and the 
general reader with a handy means of ready reference to 
the leading facts of the history of the theatre in the 
United Kingdom and the United States. The scope of the 
" Dictionary " is so far comprehensive that it seeks to give 
information about playhouses and their designers, the 
writers of plays, plays themselves, i)erformers in them, 
their critics, their scenic and musical illustrators, theatrical 
terms, and stage literature generally. 

The accounts of Playhouses are ranged here under the 
names of the cities and towns possessing them, and form 
short sketches of the theatrical history of the more impor- 
tant localities. All the more prominent theatrical architects 
find a place in these pages. 

In the case of Writers op Plays, the main attempt 
has been to supply a chronological list of their works, with 
the dates (where discoverable) of publication or perform- 
ance, or both. Only in the instance of the more notable 
dramatists of the jmst have biographical data been included ; 
in that of living playivrights, the details are confined to 
their productions. The foreign authors introduced are 
those who have become well known to the English and 
American public through translations or adaptations of 
their works. 

T ^ g T. 2) 



Pbrformbrs in Plats, whether actors or vocalists, or 
both, are dealt with on the same principle as the Play- 
writers. Of the living, no biographical particulars are 
furnished, beyond an occasional record of the date or place 
of birth ; otherwise the particulars relate solely to rblea (and 
especially "original" roles) which they have undertaken. 
Deceased players are treated, as a rule, more fully, selected 
criticisms being sometimes given, as well as references to 
biographical and critical authorities. 

Thbatrical Managers, as the producci*s of plays and 
operas, necessarily figure here; as do the leading Scenic 
Artists and Musical Composers, the latter ranging from 
the Avriters of operas and operettas to the providers of 
"incidental numbers" for plays. Most of the musicians 
included are English or Amencan ; but mention is also made 
of foreigners whose works have been produced Avith English 
librettos on one side or other of the Atlantic. 

Wrffers on the subject of the Tlieatro generally, or of 
plays and players particularly, receive due attention; and 
side by side Avith the historians, biographers, and critics 
will be found the pamphleteers and satirists in prose and 

In the ca^e of Plays, the endeavour, in general, has 
been to indicate the author, the date and place of first 
performance, and in some instances the date of first publica- 
tion. Sometimes only the title and the name of the writer 
are given; usually there are details of the first "cast;" 
and, in all the more important cases, record is made of the 
principal revivals of the pieces, and of the performers 
appearing in them. Special pains have been bestowed upon 
the stage history of Shakespeare's plays and of the other 
classics of our dramatic literature. Further, plays with the 


same title or on the same subjects are, for the convenience 
of the reader, grouped together. 

Separate entries are made of Charactbrs m PLAfs, 
preference being given, of course, to the most notable. Some 
are inserted only by way of illustrating the stage nomen- 
clature of the past. A feature is also made of First Lines 
OF Songs in Plats ; and some explanations are offered of 
Terms used fiimiliarly in connection either with plays or 
with the fabric or appointments of the Theatre. 

No claim to an impossible "completeness" is made for 
this work. In all its departments a careful selection has 
been necessary, and that has been made with a view alike to 
the limits of space and to the probable requirements of the 
readier. Nor is it pretended that the " Dictionary " relates 
the theatrical events of yesterday or the day before. No 
work of reference, not even an " annual," can be absolutely 
" up to date," Scattered over these pages are many 
references to the stage history of the present year ; but the 
object throughout has been to recoi-d rather the perma- 
neutly than the temporarily interesting. 

Finally, the mass of material collecte<l — very much of it 
from unprinted sources — has been so gi-eat as to necessitate 
condensation and compression to the fullest extent consistent 
with clearness and accuracy. As regai-ds the latter quality, 
every effort has been made to secure it ; but, in the multitude 
of facts and figures contained within these covers, it would 
be almost miracnlons if no misprints were detected. More- 
over, theatrical chroniclers often differ as to dates ; others, 
especially when they are autobiographers, offer none or few ; 
many indulge in a perplexing vagueness. In truth, those 
to whom the subject of this " Dictionary " is most familiar 


will be the first, one may be sure, to pardon any little slip, 
of omission or commission, into which the author may by 
chance have been betrayed. 

It should be added that the second, and concluding, 
volume of this work is passing through the press, and wall 
be issued in the early autumn.

till the deaths had decreased to thirty per 
week. Thus it is recorded of the year 1625 
that the *' common players" were then 
fdlowed to come to court, because "the 
plague is reduced to six." In 1831 the 
churchwardens and others of Blackfriars 

getitioned against the performances given 
y the players in tliat place, and were told 
in reply that the queen (Henrietta Maria) 
was * ^ well affected towards plays. It was, 
however, enacted that there should be only 
two houses in the city, and that each com> 
pany should play not more than twice a week, 
*' forbearing to play on the Sabbath Day, 
in Lent, ajid in times of infection." This 
measure was followed, in 1638, by the second 
great published attack on the profession — 
namely, Prynne's 'Uistrio-Mastiz'(g.v.). in 
which it was indignantly recorded that 
there were no fewer than five " devil's 
chapels " in London. The players, however, 
had the Court on their side, and so all went 
tolerably well with them till 1647-8, when, 
the Puiitans beinz uppermost, the English 
stage was for tne time suppressed, its 
Totaries being described as no oetter than 
heathens, and intolerable to Christians. 
Many of the actors, we read, took service 
with the king ; others dung to their calling, 
and gave surreptitious performances, in face 
of the new law to the contrary, some of 
these representations taking puice in the 
houses of wealthy lovers of the drama. 
Many efforts were made to obtain the revo- 
cation of the hostile decree, but without 
effect. At length there was an end to the 
Commonwealth ; Monk made his entry into 
London on behalf of the second Cmirles, 
ajid he was at once besought to give his 
countenance to the actors. He did so 
readily ; and not many hours passed before 
the drama was again to be witnessed in one 
or more of its old strongholds. From this 
point onward the path of " the prof ession " 
was fairly smooth. In 1663 diaries granted 
patents to Killigrew and Davenant, and 
Kngtfs^ actors boeam o once more recog- 
nized and protected members of society. 
True, they still had their enemies. The 
authorities of London remained as bitter as 
ever against them, and we read that in 1700 
the lord mayor and aldermen issued an 
order, forbidding any playhouse bill to be 
set up within the precincts of the city, and 
declaring the theatres a public nuisance. 
Twenty years after, Dennis was found taunt- 
ing the players of the day with being 
*' rogues and vagabonds ; " and certainly the 
rule of the lord chamberlain was some- 
what arbitrary. The number of patent 
theatres in Limdon continued to be strictly 
limited up to 1S43, wlion free trade in 
the drama was proclaimed, and when 
naturally the penonnel of the profession 
largely increased. In Scotland, the history 
of the player was marked by very similar 
vicissitudes. Thus, in 1574, the General 
Assembly prohibited all plays founded on 
Scripture, and in 1597 the Kirk Session of 
Edinburgh fulminated against both players 
and their patrons. Much later—in 1715 — 
the Presbyterian ministers preached against 

the theatre at Holyrood, threatening to 
withhold from its frequenters the means of 
obtaining the sacrament ; in 1726, Antony 
Aston's theatrical company, arriving in 
Edinburgh, met with a like reception from 
the local clergy ; whilst in 1756, when the 
Rev. John Home {q.v.) produced his tragedy 
of 'Douglas' (7-v.), the Presbyteries of 
Edinburgh and Glasgow " excommunicated," 
not only nim, but everybody connected with 
the performance! Nevertheless, with all 
this, actors in ScotUmd could, it seems, 
always depend upon an audience, and they 
were never at any time so fiercely persecuted 
as players in England were by the Puritans. 
The annals of acting in Ireland do not begin 
till the reign of Elizabeth, during which, it 
is recorded, plays were performed at Hoggin 
Green, DubOn, before the Lord Lieutenant. 
The first Dublin theatre, due to the enter- 
prise of John Ogilby, dates from 1635. During 
the civil war, the stoge languished in IreUmd 
as in England, being resuscitated in both 
countries about the same time. The Smock 
Alley Theatre was opened in 1662, also under 
the auspices of Ogilby. The beginnings of 
the profession in America would seem to date 
from 1733, when, apparently, theatrical per- 
formances of some sort were given in New 
York. In 1740 there was a company of 
players at Philadelphia, and in 1750 it made 
Its appearance in New York, afterwards 
going to Williamsburg, Virginia. There had 

Sreviously been several dramatic seasons in 
amaica, where Moody, the Irish comedian, 
Slayed about 1745, returning by-and-by to 
Ingland, and sending thence a regular 
troupe, which performed in the island in 
1751. In 1752 an English company, exploited 
by William, and headed by Lewis, Iiallam, 
appeared at Williamshnrg, and this is the 
first combination of which wo possess many 
particulars. The troupe numbered twelve, 
each of whom.had one share (out of eighteen 
shares) in the profits, save Lewis, who had 
two shares, one as actor and one as mana- 
ger. The advent of the company had been 
preceded in 1750 by a declaration of the au- 
thorities of Massachusetts against the acting 
of stage plays, and it was followed in 1774 by 
the closing of the theatres in Philadelphia, 
in accordance with a decree of Congress. In 
1793 the Massachu.Hetts onler was repealed. 
In America, as in the United Kingdom, the 
early years of the drama were charac- 
terizedf by much struggling between actors 
and the law, the latter, when inimical to 
the plavers, being as far as possible defied 
or evaded. At the present moment the 
British player has no impediment placed in 
his way, the closing of London theatres on 
Ash Wednesday, which used to obtain, 
having been abolished in 1»85. For some 
farther details l>earing generally on the 
subject, see Actors ; Actrkssgs ; Salaries ;

the English stage by Chetwood, Collier,

Adelaide. (1) A tragoilv by Mrs. Opie, 
privately played at Norwich on January 4 
and 0, 1791, with the author in the title 
part. (2) A historical tragedy in three acts, 
by UE.NRY James Pye iq.v.\ first per- 
formed at Drury Jjano on January 25, 18()0, 
with Kemble as Prince Richard, Mrs. Sid- 
dons as Adelaide, Ilarrymore as Prince 
John, J. Aikin as King llenry, and C. 
Kemble as Clifford. The prologue was by 
Southey ; the epilogue was delivered by 
Harriett Mellon (fi.r.). The play is founded 
on Lyttleton's '^liintory of Henrv II.' 
Addaide, sister of King Philip of France, 
is in love with antl beloved by Richard, but 
John tells his brother tliat Adelaide is also 
bdoved by Kintr Henry, and Adelaide, indig- 
nant at the jealousy of Richard, takes

(8) ' Adelaide ; or, The Emigrants : ' a 
tragedy in five acts, l)y R. Siikil (q.v.), 
performed at Covent Garden (for the rirat 
and only time) on May 23. 1816, with Miss 
O'Neil in the title part, C. Kemble as Count 
Lunenbura, and Young, Abbott, Murrav, 
Egerton, Mrs. Egerton, and Miss Foote in 
oUier parts. " If," says Ilazlitt, " there 
had been one good passage in this play, it 
would infallibly have been danmea. But 
It was all of a piece ; one absurdity justified 
another. . . . Count Lunenburf/ cannot marry 
Adelaide, because ' his emperor's frown ' has 
forbidden his marriage with the daughter 
of an emigrant nobleman ; and so, to avoid 
this imperial frown, he betrays her into a 
pretended marriage, and thus intendst to 
divide his time between war and a mistress. 
Hence all the distresses and mischiefs which 
ensue." 'Adelaide ' was printed in 1»I«, but 
without the opilogue (spoken by Mathews 
as .S'*> Fretful PUttjiary). It was produced 
at New York in IS 10. (4) A dramatic frag- 
sient, a^laptcd by \V. PoELfrom the

Thomas Gray, the poet, described the play 
as " all modem Greek ... an antique statue, 
painted white and red, friezed, and dressed 
in a nealigit made by a Yorkshire mantna* 
maker.'* (2) A tragedy by Alfieri (1783) ; 
translated into En^h by Lloyd (1815) and 
Bowring (1876). 

Afirlaia. One of the 'Three Graces' in 
G. A. 1 Beckett's burlesque of that 
name {q.v."). 

Afflaura. A "tragic-comedy" by Sir 
John Suckling {q.v.\ acted at " the prirate 
house InBlackfriars," probably, Fleay thinks, 
in 1637; first printed in 1638, and after- 
wards with Suckling's other works (in 1696). 
Aglaura is beloved both by the King and 
by his son, the Prince , whom she secretly 
marries, but whom she afterwards kills, 
thinking him to be the King. She there* 
upon dies. In the original text, most of the 
characters had riolent deaths — a fact which 
no doubt led Suckling to write a new fifth 
act, in which Aglaura only wounds the 
Prince^ whilst the King repents and dis* 
penses justice all round. The play api>ears 
to have been performed in both vetHions. 
Pepys. writing in 1666. called it 'moan- 
nothing of design in it.' Brome, on the 
other hand, wrote verses in its praise. 

Agmunda. A character in Hannah 
Brand's 'Huniades' {q.v.),

of Moli^re's play. See Pinchwife, Mrs. 
(8) ' Agnes ; or. The Midnight Marriage : ' 
a melodrama, periormed at Bath in March, 
1823, with Miss Dance as the heroine. 

Agnes. A character in Oxenford's 
▼ersion of *Der FreischUtz ' (^.v.), and also 
in BurnaND's burlesque of that name (g.v.). 

Agnes Bemaner. A play in two acts, 
adapted from the German by T. J. Serle 
{q.v. ), and first performed at Covent Garden 
in 1838-9. See Tournament, Tue. 

Agnes de Castro. A tragedy by Mrs. 
Catukrinr Trotter (afterwards Cock- 
bum, 9. v.), founded on a French novel of the 
same name, translated by Mrs. Behn ; and 
periormed at Drury Lane, in 1696, with 
Mrs. Rogers as the heroine, Powell as the 
Prince of Portugal^ Mrs. Knight as Elvira, 
and Verbruggen as Alvaro. Agnes is be- 
loved by the Prince, and he in his turn is 
beloved by Elvira, whom, on his marriage, 
he has cast off. Elvira, desiring to kill

accuses Agnes of the murder. Agnes* in- 
nocence is established, but in the end she 
is accidentally stabbed by her lover, Alvaro.

the libretto, the music being by Mrs. A. 
Beckett. It was produced in December, 
1835, at the St. James's Theatre, London, 
with a cast including Braham and Miss P. 

Agnes St. Anbin, the Wife of 
Two Husbands. A drama by Miss 
Pardoe, produced at the Adelphi 'Theatre, 
London, in January, 1841, with Mrs. Yates 
as Agnes, Yates as Dareourt, Mrs. Keeley 
as Mdme. Dareourt, and O. Smith and E. 
Wright in other parts. St. A ubin and Mdme. 
Detrcourt are jealous of a mysterious under- 
standing between Dareourt and Agnes. 
The truth is, Dareourt is the repository of a 
secret confided to him by A gneit— the exist- 
ence of a former rascally husband of hers, 
thought dead, but not so, and now threat- 
ening the heroine's peace. In the end the 
▼illain is shot, and the St. Aubiiu are made 
happy again. 

A-Gra-Ma-Chree ; or, Pulse of my 
Heart. A drama in five acts, by Edmund

Agrippa, King- of Alba ; or, The 
False Tiberinus. A tragedy, translated 
from the French of Quinault by John Dan- 
cer {q.v.) ; first periormed at Dublin, and 
prmted in 1675. "It is," says Genest, "a 
dull play in rhyme. The plot is intricate 
and very improbable," being based on the 
resemblance of one Agripj^ to Tiberinus 
King of Alba, whom he is persuaded to 

Agrippina. (1) A tn^edy-in rhyme, 
by John, Jx)rd Hervey ; not printe<l. See 
Walpole's 'Anecdotes.' (2) An unfinished

'* I'm a great eater of beef, and I believe 
that does harm to my wit. ... I can cut 
a caper . . . and I thmk I have the back 
trick simply as strong as any man in lUyria." 
In act it sc. S he tells us that life " consists 
of eating and drinkins;." *' He is stupid." 
says Gervinus, ** even to silliness." Among 
representatives of the character may be 
named O'Brien Cq.v.\ Woodward (q.vX and 
Bodd {qv.\ Of O'Brien it is recorded that 
he once played the part so comicallv as to 
make one of the sentinels (whom it was 
customary then to post on each side of the 
stace) fall down upon the boards, overcome 
witn laughter, woodward, Boaden says, 
always sustained Sir Andrew ** with infinite 
ilroUery." Of Dodd, Charles Lamb writes : 
" My merry friend, Jem White, had seen him 
one evening in AaueeheekyjMdt recognizing 
Dodd the next day in Fleet Street, was 
irresistibly impelled to take off his hat, and 
salute him as the identical knight of the 
preceding evening, with a *.Save you. Sir 
Atuirew. Dodd. not at all disconcerted at

also. Miss Grantham in 'The Liar,' and

Aickin, Francis. Actor, bom in 
Dublin ; died 1805 ; brother of James Aickin 
(q.v.)\ gained his early experience in Ire- 
land : appeared at Drury I^ne in 1785, and 
remained there till 1774, when he went to 
Covent Garden, from which he retired in 
1792. He was at one time manager of the 
Liverpool Theatre (1703), and at another 
time part-manager of the theatre at Edin- 
burgh. Wo read that "he had a good 
person, no inconsiderable share of Judgment, 
a sonorous, distinct voice. He succeeded in 
the impassioned and declamatory parts of 
tragedy, insomuch that from his being so 
often cast in that line, his intimates in the 
green-room nicknamea him 'Tyrant Aickin.' 
Nor did all his merit lie in tragedy. In 
serious parts of comedv, such as Sir John 
Flowerdale^ Stoekwell, etc., he had a pleasing 
harmony in his tones, and a precision of 
expression which jp^ave force to those cha- 
racters." Genest, in his History, gives a list 
of over eighty characters assumed oy Aickin, 
including the Ohost in ' Hamlet,' Jacques in 
' As You Like It,' Stukely in * The Game- 
ster,' Aboan in 'Oroonoko,' etc See also

Aiokin, James. Actor, bom in Ireland ; 
died 1803 ; brother of Francis Aickin (q.v.) ; 
first played in the Irish provinces, and after- 
wards accepted an engagement at the 
Edinburgh Theatre, where he remained till 
1767, latterly performing most of the leading 
I^rts in tragedy and comedy. In the year 
named he l^came a member of the Drury 
Lane company, to which he continued to be 
attached (with occasional appearances at 
the Hajmarket) till 1800. He was for some 
years one of the deputv managers of Drury 
Lane. He was "considered," says Ger est, 
"a respectable and useful actor," having 
"an ease and manner which wore very 

Eaffreeable and natural." "He generally 
leased, and never disgusted. His forte lay 
1 the representation of an honest steward 
or an affectionate parent." For an account

ager Df the Bunlop street IbutreiLHugOW, 




"Which he carried on for seren years, along 
irith the Adelphi, Edinbureh, and the the- 
atres at Dumfries and Carlisle. In 1829 he 
obtained the patent for Gla8«>w, built a 
theatre for himself, and, says Peter Pater- 
son, ** continued from that period until 
vittdn a few months of his death a course 
of profitable management, which enabled 
him to leave his familyin a position of com- 
parative aflSuence." The same writer says 
of Alexander's performances in Edinbursh 
that "his powerful mind, free from tne 
cares of management, enabled him to per- 
form an extensive range of characters with 
great ability ; but what contributed as much 
as any other element to his success, was an 
excellent taste in dress and invariable cor- 
rectness in reading." See Jefferson's * Auto- 
biogmphy ' (188&-00). 

Alexander, Sir William (Earl of 
Stirling). Poet and statesman, bom 1567 or 
1568, died in London, 1640 ; was the author 
of the following tragedies :— ' Darius ' (1603), 
'Croesus' (1604), 'Julius Geesar ' (1604), and 
'The Alexandriean ' (1605); all of which see. 
They were publish^ together, under the 
title of 'Monarchicke Tragedies,' in 1607. 
Alexander's collected * Worxs ' appeared in 
1637. ** His tragedies," says Orosart, " have 
'brave sublunary things,' if laboured and 
dull as a whole. See Rogers' * Memorials 
of the Eari of StirUng ' (1877).

Alexander the Qreat. The famous

^exander, Campaspe, and Diogenes:' a 
comedy by John Lyly (q.vX •• played before 
Queen Elizabeth, on Twelfth-night (1581), 
by the children of Paul's '' and printed in 
1584. The plot is from Pliny's 'Natural 
History,' bk. xxxv. chap. 10. Lyly was 
perhaps Indebted to "a ballet, entituled 
An Ilistory of Alexander, Campaspe. and 
Apelles, and of the faythful fryndshippe 
betweene theym," printed for Colwell in 
1666. •• This play," says Hazlitt, " is a very 
pleasing transcript of old manners and senti- 
ment. It is full of sweetness and point, of 
Attic salt and the honey of Hymettus." 
Collier describes the play as " certainly one 
of the best of Lyly's productions," prais- 
ing " the force and distinction with which 
JHoffenea is drawn." " Some interest is also 
felt for Apelles. who had fallen in love with 
Camwupt while employed by Alexander to 
paint her portndt. . . . Campaspe also be- 
comes enamoured of ilpei^«. . . . The main 
plot is varied by the introduction of some 
of the Grecian sages and philosophers." 
'^ Apelles and Gampaspet" lays Fleay, " seem 

to shadow forth Leicester and the Countess 
of Elssex. . . . Alexander, of course, means 
the queen, and Hephsration, 1 think, Bur- 
leigh. . . . Diogenes, I think, means Lyly 
himself." See Warton's * English Poetry'

Alexandrsean Tragedy (The). A

AmasiSy King- of Enrpt. A tragedy 
by Charles Marsh (q.v?), first performed 
(Oenest says) at CoTent Garden on August 
82, 1788. The plot is whoUv fictitious, being 
In no way indebted to the narrative of 

Amateur Acting. It would be diffi- 
cult, if not imi>ossible, to indicate the origin 
of amateur acting. In England, certainly, 
the first the monks who per- 
formed in the ' mysteries' (q.v.) and ' miracle- 
plays ' (q.v.)— were, in every sense, amateurs. 
And Uie example thus set in the church 
was by-and-bT followed in the schools, at 
the universiUiBS. and at Court. It is well 
known that Uie first English comedy, ' Ralph 
Roister Doister' (q.v!), was written by 
Nicholas Udall, a master at Eton, for 
representation, in private, by his scholars. 
An early amateur performance at Cam- 
bridge—about iei6— has quite an historical 
interest, owing to the presence among the 
actors of no less a personage than voung 
Oliver CromwelL (See Tactus.) Under 

Elizabeth and the two first Stuarts, the 
masque (q.v.) came into vogue among 
royalty and the aristocracy, and to the 
fondness for this sort of work we owe 
Milton's 'Comus' (q.v), written for pro- 
duction at Ludlow Castle in 1634. the 
" cast " including the sons and daughter of 
the Earl of Bridgewater. Queen Henrietta 
Maria promotea manv entertainments of 
the kind, and we read later of the Princesa 
(afterwards Queen) Anne being " coached " 
for a performance of Lee's ^itiiridate«' 
(q.v.) bv Joseph Ashbury (a.v.), the manager 
and actor. It is also recorded of the princess 
that she took part, in 1675, in a representa- 
tion of Crowne's 'CaUsto' (q.v.). In 174& 
' Cato ' (q.v.) was played at Leicester House 
by the children of the Prince of Wales, 
araisted by young members of the nobility. 
Prince George, afterwards George m., was 
PortiuM ; Pruice Edward, Jviia ; the Prin- 
cess Augusta, Marcia; and the Princess 
Elizabeth, Lucia. Two years later ' Othello ' 
was given at Dniry Lane Theatre by a 
company of amateurs, including Sir Francis 
Delaval (q.v.) and certain of his relatives. 
This was a highly " fashionable " a£Fair, the 
patronage being very distinguished, and 
the expenses running to about £1000. In 
1773 ' Venice Preserved ' was performed at 
Kelmarsh, the seat of Mr. Hanbury, and 
among those who appeared was Mr. David 
Garrick, the nephew of the fapaous actor, as 
well as Mr. Cradock (q.v.), a noted amateur 
of the time. But surely the most magnificent 
amateur of those days was the Earl of Barry- 
more (q.v.), who, besides being an actor of 
apparently varied ability, built himself a 
theatre at his seat in Berkshire, and there 
superintended a succession ox dramatic 
representations. In these cases the profes- 
sional was mingled with the amateur ele- 
ment, some of the leading actors of the day 
being enga^^ed by his lordship. There was 
another private theatre at Brandenburgh 
House, Hammersmith, and here the Mar- 
gravine of Anspach (q.v.) made numerous 
appearances botn as author and as actress. 
Worthy to rank with the doings at Lord 
Barrymore's were those which took place 
between 1770 and 1808, at Wynnstay, the 
seat of Sir W. W. Wynn. These, we are 
told, " wore on a scale of great complete- 
ness," and included such senous adventures 
as certain Elizabethan tragedies. Among 
notable amateurs at the beginning of the 
century were Sir Thomas Lawrence, Captain 
Caulfleld (who appeared at Covent Gsj^en 
in 1802), and the remarkable ' Romeo ' 
Coatos (q.v.). The last-named made his 
d^ut in London in 1811, and had the dis- 
tinction of being burlesqued by the elder 
Mathews (q.v.). Captain Hicks, Captain 
Tuckett, and a disreputable joumaUst 
named Gregory, all had, as amateurs, a 
certain amount of notoriety in their day, 
and the first-named was even once seen at 
Covent Garden (about 1837). Probably the 
most distinguished company of amateurs 
ever seen in England was that organized by 
Charles Dickens (a.v.) for performances in 
aid of the proposed Guild ox Literature and

Anixnal Masmetisxn. A farce in three 
acts, adapted from the French by Mrs. Inch- 
bald (a.v.), first performed at Ck>Tent (Htrden 
on Apnl 20, 1788, with Quick as the Doctor^ 
Mrs. Wells as Comtaneet Pope as the Mar- 
md$ de Lancy, Edwin as Lajleur. and Mrs. 
Mattocks as LUette. A Doctor keeps Con- 
itanee^ his ward, under lock and key. desiring 
to marry her himself. But she is in Ioto with 
a Marouiiy and he and his senrant Lajleur 
gain aamission to the house in the characters 
of a sick man and a magnetic doctor. Much 
fun is got out of the magnetizing scenes. 
The part of LaJUur was in the repertory of 
both Jefferson the second and fourth. The 
farce was first played in America in 1703. 

Animals on the Stagre. Ilorses, 
dogs, etc, have figured on the boards from 
"tune immemorial"— not only as "proper- 
ties," but in reality. Plays have been writ- 
ten for them, and some of these still hold 
the stage. At one time the "equestrian 
drama,'^ as it was called, " flourished " 
indeed, and it has not yot wholly dis- 
I4>peared. To trace the origin of the appear- 
ance of animals even on the English stage 
would be impossible. Pepys speus of wit- 
nessing in 1668 a performance of Shirley's 
* Uide Park,' in which homes were brought 
before the audience. In 1727, when Shake- 
speare's 'Henry VIII.' was rerive*!, a 
mounted champion figured in the corona- 
tion spectacle. In 1803 Astley rebuilt his 
amphitheatre, and it was then, says Dutton 
Cook, that the "equestrian drama" became 
an institution. In the same year a dog had 
figured at Drurv Lane in Reynolds's * Cara- 
Tan ' (q.vX and had been so successful as to 
receive the tribute of the managerial rap- 
tures. In 1811 Colman's ' Blue Beard ' was 
brought out at Covent (larden with a troop 
of horses— a spectacle satirized at the Hay- 
market in "The Quadrupeds of 9*i®<Uin- 
burgh ' (9. v.), and at Drury Lane m *The 
Quadrupeds ; or. The Manager's Last Kick ' 
iq.v.). In the prologue to the former, it 
was said— 

** Daw Johnnr Ball, . . . 
Your tMte. rccoverad half from farelni qaaekt, 
twkm alrincB now on Eoslish horaei backs. 
WhUa avarr modem bara majr rmiaa hU nama, 
If not on lafting praUa, on stabla tuna." 

In the brothers Smith's * Reelected Ad- 
dresses,' published in 1812, we read in the 
parody on Coleridge— 

" AmU tha firaaki that modarn fiariifcm incttoii^ 
It griavM ma modi to ma Uva animals 
Broiuglit oa tha itaae. Orimakll has hli labMt, 
Laurant hla cat. and Bndbuiy hb pig. 

more than one of Boucicault's dramas, and, 
as Percy Fitzgerald reminds us, ChUperie, in 
the opera, sings a song on horseback. In 
'Claude Duval' (Stephens and Solomon) the 
hiffh wayman makes bis first appearance thus. 
' Mazeppa,' to the representation of which a 
horse is essential, is still seen at intervals ; 
an elephant has played its part in 'Bound 
the world' (^.r.); a donkey figured in *La 
Cigale' iq.v.); sheep have b^n emploved

Ariel. (1) An airy spirit in Shakespeare's 

' Tempest ' (q.v.). He first appears in act L 
sc 2. He sings "Come unto these yellow 
sands " and "Tull fathom five my father 
lies." in act i. sc. 2. and "Where the bee 
sucks, there suck I,*' in act v. sc 1. " It is 
evident," says Qervinus, "that Shakespeare 
intended to give to jProtpero't fovourite 
messenger the united power of all elemental 
spirits. At one time he api)ear8 as a sear 
nymph, swimming and careering on the sea ; 
then as a fire-spint who sets the ship on fire, 
and dimbs like licking flame up the mast ; 
then as a spirit of earth, buried for Protpero 
in the frozen veins of the earth ; his ruling 
nature, however, as his name implies^ thai 
of a sylph, a spirit of the air. ... He in» 
formerly in the service of the witch Svcorax, 
for whose 'earthly and abhorrea com- 
mands' he vras too delicate: he slighted 
her behests, and she confined idm, ' by help 
of her more potent ministers,' in a cloven 

{>ine : . . . but, after twelve years' painful 
mprisonment, Prospero'e magic power set 
him free. For thia oenefit, the restoration 
of freedom, the highest Ar(el knew, he gave 
to Prospero a service more suited to his 
gentle nature " (' Shakespeare's Characters '). 
*' Shakespeare," says Hazlitt, "has, as it 
were by design, drawn off from (kUUian the 
elements of whatever is ethereal and re- 
fined, to compound them in the uneurthly 
mould of Ariel. Nothing was ever more 
finely conceived than this contrast between 
the material and the spiritual, the gross 
and delicate. Ariel is imaginary power, the 
swiftness of thought personifled. When 
told to make good speed by Profpero, he 
says, ' I drink the air before me.' This is 
something like Puel^t boast on a similar 
occasion, * ril put a girdle round about the 
earth in forty minutes.' But JnW differs 
from Puck in having a fellow-feeling in the 
interests of those he is employed about." 
Longfellow tells us how 

" Ariel In the cloTen pine tree 
For freedom 
Groans and slglu." 

Ariel is the " magic pnge from Shakespeare's 
magic volume," in the Brothers Brouoh's 
'Enchanted Isle' (q.v.). See, also, Bur-

••M. Augier," says Brander Matthews, 
"inherits the best traditions of French 
comedy. He is a tme child of Beaumar- 
chais, a tme grandchild of Moli^re. He has 
the Gallic thrust of the one, and something 
of the broad utterance of the other ana 
greater" (' French Dramatists of the Nine- 
teenth Century'). " M. Augier '' says Dut- 
ton Cook, " is nothing if not didactic ; he 
is witty and eloquent ; the stage is to him 
something of a pmpit, and he finds in Paris 
attentive and adminng audiences of his 
moral essays by reason of the striking illus- 
trations that accompany them " ('Nights

as Miranda, Mrs. Powell as Agnes. Barry- 
more as Raymond, and other parts by Ban- 
nister, jun., C. Kemble, Wewitzer, Archer, 
Mrs. Bland, etc Aurelio is a monk, with

cates her affection, and, being released from

act, when Mrs. Siddons took the child from 
Mrs. Powell, there happened to be some 
hissing. Mrs. Siddons, not liking this, made 
her exit more rapidly than usual. In her 
hurry she struck the wooden child so

through, that the head came tumbling down

diately, 'Immortal power, preserve my 

Aurenniebe ; or, The Great UTogiil. 
A tragedy by John Dryden (^.r.), probably 
acted m the spring of 1G75, and printed in 
that year. The first cast included Hart as 
Aurengzehe, Mohun as the Emperor, Mrs. 
Marshidl as Nourmahal, Kynaston as Moral, 
Mrs. Cox as Indamcra, and Mrs. Corbet as 
Melesinda, The scene is in Agra in 1660. 
The Emperor desires his son Aurengzebe to 
resign to him Indamora, the captive queen 
with whom both are in love. Aurengzebe 
refuses, and the Emperor thereupon con- 

nives with his other son Morat, and AurengT 
zebe is put in confinement. Hourmahal, the 
Empress, loves him, but he rejects her ad 
vances, and she attempts to poison him. 
The Emperor and Morat quarrel ; the former 
makes friends with Aurengzebe, and the 
last-named defeats the forces of his brother, 
who dies of his wounds. His wife, Mele- 
sinda, commits suicide ; Nourmahal poisons 
herself and dies mad ; and Aurengzebe and 
/ndamora are made hiu>py. Da vies describes 
the piece as the author's "last and most 
perfect rhvming tragedy. The passions are 
strongly depicMd, the characters well dis- 
criminated, and the diction more familiar 
and dramatic than in any of his preceding 
pieces" ('Dramatic Miscellanies '1 "The 
verse used," says Scott, "is of that kind 
which may be most easily applied to the 
purposes of ordinary dialogue." It is in 
this tragedy that wo find the weUknown 
description of life — 

" When I oonilder life, 'tis an a dieat," etc — 

which is placed in the mouth of the hero. 
" Nor," says Scott, " is the answer of JVoiir- 
mahal inferior in beauty" — 

"TU not for nothing that we Ufo ponue," etc 

Praise is given by Scott to the lines on virtae, 
also spoken by Aurengzd>e — 

" Bow Tain if Tirtue, which directi oar wayB," etc. 

' Aurengzebe ' was revived at Drurv Lane in 
February, 1708, with Powell as the hero, 
Betterton as the Emperor, Booth as Morat, 
Mrs. Barry as Nourmahal, Mrs. Rogers a& 
Indamora, and Mrs. Porter as Melesinda; 
at the same theatre in November, 1709, with 
Mrs. Bradshaw as Indamora ; and again at 
Drury Lane in December, 1721, with WUka 
as Aurengzebe, Mills as the Emperor, Mrs. 
Porter as Nourmahal, Mrs. Oldfield as/iuia-

Baddeley, Bobert. Actor, bom Qt is 
said) 1782; died 1794 ; was at different umes 
cook to Lord North and Foote, the actor 
^tf.v.), and afterwardli valet to a private gen- 
UaoKO. During his travels with the uist- 
named he aoquued a knowledge of foreign 
hingnages wmch was afterwards of much 
use to nim as a performer, enabling him to 
take " broken-Euglish "jMiia with much suc- 
cess. He upeared at Drury Lane previous 
to 1761^ vnuch year he played at the Smock 
Alley Theatre, Dublin. In 1763 he again 
vent to DrniT Lane, with which theatre, 
and with the Haymarket. he remained con- 
nected Ull his death. He was married to 
Sophia Snow in 1764. He was the original 
representaUve of Canton in 'The Clandes- 
tine Marriage,' Ftdmer in * The West Indian,' 
Dr,DrHid in * The Fashionable Lover,' Spmee 
In *The School for Wives,' iKvy in 'The 

Trip to Scarborough.' Mo^et in *The School 
for Scandal,' FrcUck in * The Humourist.' Me- 
dium in * Inkle and Yarico,' Crotchet in ' The 
Box-Lobby Challenge,' etc Among his other 
parts were Sir Francit Oripe in *The Busy- 
body' a761-2), PoUmiut (17<»-4X Dr. Caiui 
S76S-4), Surly in 'The Alchemist' (1766-7). 
rainworm in ' Every Man in his Humour ^

Fag in • The Rivals ' (1776-7), Komp in * The 
Author' (1781X Puf in * The Patron ' 0781), 
and FhbUUn (1789-90). Wewitser says that 
" the first character ne happened to appear 
in, it was necessary he should wear a sword. 
Foote, seeing him thus equipped, imme- 
diately exclaimed, * Ha, Baddeley, I am 
heartily glad to see you in the way of com- 
plete transmigration-^you liave turned your 
«p»<intoa«iM»rda^eadv!"' Michael KeUy 
says: "He had a habit of smacking his 
lips always when spei^dng. In allusion to 
this, Charles Bannister said to him one day, 
* My dear Baddeley, everybody must know , 
that you have been a cook, for you always 
seem to be tasting your words.' *^ In * The 
Theatre ' (1771) we read that 

" Baddeley can never mlai 
A croudilng Frenchman or a flattering Swla ; ** 

and Huffh Kelly, in 'Thespis' (1766), Is 
equally Battering about his *' foreign foot- 
men." On the other hand, Williams, in his 
' Children of Thespis ' (1786), speaks of the 
actor as being *' slovenly " and *' rushing 
through his parts." By bis will, dated 
1792. he left a house at Moulsey *' to be 
used as an asylum for decayed actors 
and actresses," with a provision tliat when 
the property was worth £360 a year pensions 
were to be bestowed. He also bequeathed 
money to the fund for the relief of indigent 
persons connected with Drury Lane Theaiare, 
and £8 per annum for the purchase of cake 
and wine to be dispensed to the Drury 
Lane company on Twelfth Night— a cere- 
mony which is still performed. See Genest's 
' English Stage ' (1882), Dutton Cook's * Hours 
with the Players' (1880), the Theatre for 
September, 1880, etc. 

Baddeley, Sophia (n^ Snow). Actress 
and vocalist, wife of B. Baddeley; bom 
1746, died 1786; is thought to have made 
her d£but in 1764, probablv as Cordelia. She

Bale, John. Bishop of Ossory, bom 
November, 1496, at Cove, Suffolk ; died 1563 ; 
was the author of the following dramatic 
works, printed in the years named : — * A 
Brefe Comedy or Enterlude of Johan 
Baptystet Preachynge in the Wylderaesse, 
openynge the crafty Assanltea of the Hn>o- 
cry tes with the gloryonse Baptysme of the 
Lorde Jesus Christ ' (1538) ; * A Tragedye or 
Enterlude, Manyfestyng the chefe promyses 
of God nnto Man, in all ages of the olde 
lawe from the Fall of Adam to the Incama- 
cyon of the Lorde Jesus Christ' (1588); * A 
Brefe Comedy or Enterlude, concemynge 
the temptacyon of our Lorde and Saver 
Jesus Christ by Sathan in the desart ' (1588) ; 
and * New Comedy or Enterlude concern- 
ing the Three Lawes of Nature, Moses, 
and Christe, corrapted by the Sodomytes, 
Pharisees, and Papystes' (1558). In his 
' Scriptoram illustrium majoris Britanniae 
Catalogus' (1548-59), the bishop claims, 
further, to have written plays on the fol- 
lowing subjects :— * Of Chnst when he was 
Twelve years old,' * Of Baptism and Tempta- 
tion,' ' Of Lazarus raised from the Dead,' 

* Of the Councells of Bishops,' * Of Simon 
the Leper.' 'Of the Lord's Supper and 
washing the Feet,' *0f the Passion of 
Chryst/ 'Of the Sepulture and Resurrec- 
tion,' ' Upon both Marriages of the King,* 
'Against Momns's and Zouus's,' *The Trea-

adulterate the Word of God," Of John 
King of England,' *0f the Impostures of 
Thomas Becket,' * Corruptions of the Divine 
Laws,' and 'The Image of Love.' "His 
dramas," writes Bishop Creighton, "were 
moralities, or scriptural plays setting forth 
the reformed opinions and attacking the 
Roman party. . . . The plays of Bale are 
doggerel, and are totally wanting in de- 
corom." For biographv, see ' The vocacyon

Barry, Elizabeth. Actress, bom 165S» 
died 1713 ; is said to have been the daughter 
of a barrister (afterwards known as Colonel 
BarryX and to have been at one tim» 
under the care of Lady Davenant. Antony 
Aston says that, when the Earl of Rochester 
secureil her appearance on the stage^ 
she was "woman" to Lady Shelton of 
Norfolk. Certain it is that her dUntt 
was made at Dorset Garden about 1678. aa 
Qw^n of Hungary in ' Mustapha,' and that 
at first she was by no means a success. *' She 
was, at the end of the first year, discharg'd 
the company, among others that were 
thought to oe a useless expense to it." 
However, she appeared again in 1675, and 
thence continuously till 1682, when she ^ 
figured at the Theatre Royal. With that 
establishment she was associated till 1695, 
when she nuule her entree at Lincoln's Inn 
Fields. In 1705 she went to the Ilaymarket, 
going to Drury Lane in 1708, and returning 
to the Ilaymarket in 1709-10. In the latter 
year she withdrew from the stiu^e. It would 
seem that she was the first (listinguished 
English performer for whose benefit a per- 
formance was given. She was the mistres.«f 
not only of Rochester but of Sir George 
Etherege, and her moral character generally 
is described as of the worst. Among her 
original rules (which were very numerous) 
Were Monimia in 'The Orphan,' Belvid^ra 
in ' Venice Preserved,' Alcmena in 'Amphi*

was the original representative of Havh 
thome in Bickerstafrs Love in a Village' 
q.v.\ in which part, on May 28, 17677ne 

ade farewell to the boards. His first ap- 
pearances as a platform singer had been 
made in the periormances conducted by 
Handel at C!ovent (harden in 1786. " To form 
an estimate of his abilities as a singer, it is 
only necessary to remember that Handel 
composed for him the gr^t tenor parts in 
'Israel in Egypt,' 'Messiah,' 'Samson/ 
' Judas Maccabaeus/ and ' Jepthah.' ^ 
Charles Dibdin says : " I consider Beard, 
taken altogether, as the best EngUsh 
singer. He was one of those you might 
fairly try by Shakspearo's speech to the 
actors. He did not mouth it, but his 
words came trippingly from hiv tongue; 
he did not out-HerodHerod, but he begot a 
temperance that gave his exertions smooUi- 
ness ; he never outstepped the modesty of 
nature, nor made the judicious grieve. . . . 
He was very valuable as an actor. In the 
' Jovial Crew/ ' Love in a Village,* ' (Tomns,* 
and * Artaxerxes' he gave proof of this in a 
degree scarcely inferior to anybody.** See 
Dibdin's * History of the Stage^ aSOOX * The

Bergmr'a Opera (The). A dramatic 
pirce In throe acts, written by Jojr:i Oar 
in prose, with alxty-aiae brief lyrica, ad^ted 




(by Dr. PepnBdi) to popular aini. Offered 
to and rejected by Gibber ^for Dniry Lane), 
it was accepted for production by John 
Rich, and first performed at Lincoln's Inn 
Fields on January 29, 1728. with Chapman 
as the Begoar, who is supposed to be the 
author of iha piece, and Milward as the 
Plover, with whom, in the introduction, he 
holds colloquy ; with Hippisley as Peaehum 
(fk receiver of stolen soodsX Mrs. Martin as 
Mrt. Peaehum (his wife), and Miss Lavinia 
Fenton as PoUy (their daufchter) ; Hall as 
LodcU (a JailorX and Mrs. Egleton as Luey 
Loekit (his daughter) ; and Walker as Mae- 
heath (captain of a gang of robbers). The 
robbera tnemseltes were represented thus— 
FOeh, by COark; Jemmu TwUeher, by H. 
Bullock ; Robin tif Bagthot, by Lacy ; Mat 
of the Mint, by Spiller; Ben Budge, by 
Morgan. Of the "women of the town*^ 
who complete the pereona. Mrs. Martin was 
Diana Trapee ; Mrs. Holiday, Mrs. Coaxer ; 
Mrs. Rice, Jfr». Ftoen : Mrs. Clarke, Jenny 
Diver ; Mrs. Morgan. Mrt. Slammekin. The 
piece was intended both as a "skit" upon 
the methods of Italian opera and as a social 
and political satire. In the introduction 
the Beggar says : ** I hare introduced the 
flimUes that are in all your celebrated 
operas: the Swallow, the Moth, the Bee, 
the Ship, the Flower, etc. Besides, I have a 
prison scene, which the ladies always reckon 
charmingly pathetic. An to the parts, I 
hate obserred such a nice impartiedity to 
our two ladies, that it is impossible for either 
of them to take offence [an allusion to the 
feud between Cnzzoni and Faustina in 1727]. 
... I hope I may be forgiven that I hate 
not made my opera throughout unnatural 
like those in vogue ; for I have n« recitative. 
Throughout the whole piece you may ob- 
serve such a similitude of manners in high 
ftnd low life, that it is difficult to determine 
whether (in the fashionable vices) the fine 
gentlemen imitate the gentlemen of the 
road, or the gentlemen of the road the fine 
gentlemen." *' No one," says Gay's latest 
editor (1808)> " could fail to see that Bolrin 
cf Bagehot vras designed to represent Sir 
Robert Walpole's unrefined manners, con- 
▼iviaJ habits, and alleged robbery of the 
public Maeheath was provided with both 
avrife and a mistress, to indicate to the 
public that Lady Walpole had a rival in 
Miss Skerrett." In Spence's * Anecdotes ' 
Pope is represented as giving the following 
account of the origin of the piece : *' Dr. Swift 
had been observing once to Mr. Gay what an 
odd pretty sort of thing a Newgate Pastoral 
might make. Gay vras inclined to try such 
a tbing for some time; but afterwards 
thought it would be better to write a comedy 
on the same plan. This was what gave rise 
to * The Besgar's Opera.' He began on it ; 
and when he first mentioned it to Swift, 
the doctor did not much like the project. 
As he carried it on, he showed what he 
wrote to boUi of na, and we now and then 
gave a correction or a word or two of 
advice, but it was whollv of his own writing.** 
** Quin," says Genest, *^had so happy an ear 
for music, and was so famous for singing 

with ease a common ballad or catch, that 
Gay was persuaded to offer him the part of 
MaehecUh ; but after a short trial he gave 
it up, from despiUr of acquitting himself 
with the dissolute gaiety and bold vigour of 
deportment necessaryto the character. It 
vras then given to Walker ; and the ease 
and gaiety vrith which he acted Maehealtk 
established his reputation." At the first re- 
presentation ** everybody concerned was in 

fear as to the ultimate fate of the play. Chiin 
afterwards said that it vras Ions in a dubious 
state ; that there was a dispontion to damn 
it, and that it was saved by the song, ' Oh. 
ponder well ! be not severe.* '* In one of 
the notes te *The Dunciad* vre read: **It 
was acted in London sixty-three [sixty- 
two] days uninterrupted [save for actors' 
benefit performances], and received the next 
season with equal applause. It spread into 
all the great towns of England. . . . It made 
ite progress into Wales, Scotland, and Ire- 
land. . . . The ladies carried about with them 
the favourite songs of it in fans, and houses 
were furnished with it in screens. The 
person who acted PoUy, till then obscure, 
became all at once the favourite of the town. 
Furthermore, it drove out of England (for 
that season) the Italian opera, which had 
carried all before it for ten years." "The 
total sum realized by the initial set of per- 
formances was." says Gay's latest editor, 
**£5361 16«. Of this Gay received for four 
author's nighte— the third, sixth, ninth, and 
fifteenth— £693 IZ*. 6d. He sold the copy- 
right of the opera (together vri^ that of 
the * Fables*) for ninety ffulneas, and con- 
sequently made in all nearly eight hundred 
pounds. ''^ It was said of the piece that it 
had made *' Gay rich and Rich gav.*' Rich 
might well be jubilant, for his proflto 
amounted to £4000. The opera was acted by 
children at Dublin in 1727 and at Lincoln^ 
Inn Fields in 1729. It was revived at Drury 
Lane in 1788, with Beard as Maeheath, 
Macklin as Peaehum, Mrs. Clive as PoUy. 
and Mrs. Pritohard as Luey ; at Covent 
Garden in 1745. with Mrs. C^ive as Luey ; 
at Drury Lane in 1747, with Mrs. dbber as

Bellafirontf in Dekkbr's 'Honest 
'Whore' (q.v.), is, says UazUtt, *' a most in- 
teresting character. It is an extreme, and 
I am afraid, almost an ideal case. She gives 
the play its title, tarns out a true penitent, 
that is. a practical one, and is the model ox 
an exemplary wife." 

Bellair, in Ethxregb's *Man of Mode' 
iq.v.)t was probably intended by the author 
as a piece of self-portraitnre. Bellair is the

comedy by Sir Charles SbdleyCo.v.), acted 
«'by their Msjesties' servants "at the llieatre 
Royal in 1687. The scene is laid in London, 
but the characters and plot are adapted 
from the * Eunuch ' of Terence. * * The parts 
of Lional, Eustaeet PiMuU, and Suenee 
correspond to those of Chcerea, Chremes, 
Boms, and Dorias. Dangerfieldtaxdi Smoothly 
are Thraso and Gnatho. Fluedria is tumea 
into KeemoeU^ a comic character. In the 
port of iTuiis, as Bellamira^ the author . . . 
seems to have had his eye on the I>uches8 
of Cleveland." *'He represents her as an 
imperious mistress, who governs and Jilts 
her keeper " (Oenest). Menyman is largely 
identical vrira Parmeno, and, as a very fat 
man, is contrasted with Cunningham^ wno is

Montalto, and Terry as Salerno ; first played 
at New York in the same year, with George 
Bartley as Montalto and Mrs. G. Bartley as 
JBeUamira. Bellamira is the daughter of 
Montalto (governor of Tunis) and the wife of

falls into the hands of ^fnitratA, a renegade, 
who has superseded Montalto : but is saved

Bellamy. Oeor^e Anne. Actreai, 
bom (according to her own statement) on 
April 23, 1733 ^According to Chetwood, in 
1727) ; christened " George Anne" by mistake 
for * * Georgiana : " daughter of Lord Tyrawley 
and a quakeress named Seal, who married 
a Captain Bellamy just before "Cieurge 
Anne s " birth. Through her father, ** George 
Anne," in her vouth, made the acquaintance 
of some notable people, such as Fox, Chester* 
field. Pope, and Garrick. She appears to have 
had some success in private theatricals 
before, in 1742, she appeared at Covent 
Garden as Prue in * Love for Love * (q.v,). 
She was engaged at that theatre for the 
season of 1744-5, during which she figured 

It was at this time that she undertook her 
first original part— that of Blanch in * Papal 
Tyranny ' (1745). Between 1745 and 1748 she 
was at the Aungier Street Theatre, Dublin. 
In 1748-50 she was at Ovent Garden ; in 
1750-53 at Dmry Lane ; and in 1753-59 at 
Covent Garden again. She visited Dublin 
(Smock Alley) in 1760-61. and Edinburgh in 
1764. At Covent Garden she figurM in 
1761-62, and between 1764 and 1770. She 
died in Febmary, 1788. Among the cha- 
racters she " created "—and they were not 
verv numerous— were Volumnia in Thom- 
son s ' Coriolanus ' (1740), Erixenein Young's 
•Brothers' (1753), Virginia in Moncrieffs 
* Appius ' (1755). and the heroine in * Cleone ' 
(1758). Her Shakespearean parts included 
Juliet [which she played, with Garrick as 
BomeOf at Covent Garden in 1750, against 
Barry and Mrs. Nosslter at the rival estab- 
lishment], Cordelia, Deedemonaj Lady Mac- 
beth. Portia in * Julius Ca!8ar,'and UabeUa 
in ' Measure for Measure ; ' among her other 
r6le9 mav be mentioned Marcia in ' Cato,' 
Leonora in ' The Revenge,' Almeria in * The 
Mouminff Bride,' Andromache^ and Calieta, 
For further details, see Genest's * English 
Stage ' (1832). •• We can say of Mrs. Bellamy," 
observes C. Dibdin, *' that she was natunU, 
easy, chaste, and impressive ; that as far 
as person, features, voice, and conception 
went, none of whico were by any means of 
an inferior description, she highly pleased 
and never offended." ** In the latter part of 
her life she went off greatly in her acting, 
and consequently could not get an engage- 
ment; but her dfstrens arose chiefly from 
her extravagance." In 1785 appeared *An 
Apology for the Life of George Anne 
Bellamy,' compiled, apparently, by Alex- 
ander Bicknell, who ''ingeniously worked 
up his materials into five small volumes, to

Actress, bom in Anstralia, whence she went 
to California, 'appearing iin New York for 
the first time in 1866. Since then she has 
played in New York leading parts in such

She was the second wife of Junius Brutus

Bfatthews, *^is one of unusual beauty. In 
her acting, a certain severity of style sug-

Booth, Sarah. Actress ; bom at Bir- 
iff^g^'^'" in 1792 ; died 1867 ; seems to have 
ma£ her d^but in 1804 at Manchester as a 
dancer. She was afterwards entrusted by the 
manager, Macready, with small parts, which 
led to more important ones. Trom Man- 
chester she went to Doncaster, where her 
AUxina in *The Exile' (q.v.) attracted 
attention, and led to her engagement by 
EUlston for the Royal Circus. Here she 
appeared mainly in melodrama. Next came 
an engagement at Covent Garden, where 
she opened on November 23, 1810, as 
AmanUiis in 'A Child of Nature' (q.v,). 
She was at once successful, and was speedily 
allotted some " original "parts, among them 
EUen in 'Education,' Claudine in 'The 
Miller and his Men,' and Florio in ' The Dog 
of Montu^ds.' She was also seen in such 
rdlet as Dolly in ' Fontainblean,' Annette in 

* The Maid and the Magpie ' and LittU Pickle 
in ' The SpoUed ChUd? Her highest flight 
was made as Juliet. During her next 
engagement at the same theatre she played 
Cordelia to the Lear of Booth. At Drury 
Lane she figured as Lady Bodolpha to 
Edmund Kean's Sir Arehy ; thence she went 
to the Olympic (1821), returning once more 
to Covent Garden, where she appeared as 
Maria Dwiington. Engagements at the 
AdelphI, Drury Lane, and Haymarket fol- 
lowed. Among her notable parts were 
Letitia Hardy, Lady Teazle, and PrisciUa 
Tomboy in ' The Bomp * (q.v.), " I am sure," 
vrrites William Robson, "I have seen her 
in Juliet, Jiot€Uindj Cora, Viola, and above 
all in Puck, in which she was as near the 
merry, mischievous elf, as flesh and blood 
can approach. Her person was petite and 
pretty ; she had a pleasing voice, and. what 
was luways my delight, a most clear, distinct 
enunciation. . . . She was the original 

* Lady of the Lake,' and, after dear Mrs.

Boston. U.S.A. The regular theatrical 
life of Boston appears to have begun little 
more than a century ago. In 1750, or there- 
abouts, stage performances were prohibited 
by law, and an effort made in 1702 to get 
this enactment abolished was unsucc^ssml. 
The result, we read, was that plays were 
represented in the local '* exhibition room " 
under the disguise and title of ** moral 
lectures." However, in 1704 a theatre was 
built in Federal Street, and two years later 
another was erected in the Haymarket. 
The Boston Museum dates from 1846, being 
opened in November of that year, in 1852 
came the '* inauguration ** of the National 
Theatre. To 1854 belongs the Boston The- 
atre, which was started in September by 
^omas Barry. In 1867 J. H. Selwyn opened 
a theatre named after himself. This he 
managed for two seasons, at the end of 
which it was re-christened the Globe. It 
was thereafter directed successively by C. 
Fechter and W. B. Floyd, being burned 
down in May, 1878, rebuilt, and reopened 
in December, 1874. For details of the the- 
atrical history of Boston, see the 'Record 
of the Boston Stage.' written by W. W. 
Clapp, Jun., and published in 1853. 

Boswell, James, son of the biographer 
of Dr. Johnson, edited *The Plays and 
Poems of Wm. Shakespeare, with the cor- 
rections and illustrations of vuious com- 
mentators, comprehending a life of the 
poet and an enlarged history of the stage, 
by the late Edmund Malone' (1821), con- 
tributing to the work "various readings 
and notes of no great importance," additions

from 1688 to 1094, at Lincoln's Inn Fields 
from 1695 to 1705, and at the Haymarket 
from 1705 to 1707. In the last>named rear 
(the thirty-third of her affe) she retired from 
the stage— for what partlcolar reason is not 
certain. It n^ay have been, as suirgested, 
because Mrs. Uldfleld **was ezcelllng her 
in popular estimation ; " or because Mrs. 
Olofield was " preferr'd to some parts before 
her ;" or because Mrs. Oldfield's " benefit" 
was *' allowed to be in the season before ** 
hers. Genest thinks that "the affront** 
shown to her in the matter of her '* benefit " 
would be "a sufficient cause" for her re- 
Urement. She returned to the boards in 
1709, but only for one night (April 7), to 
appear as Angelica in ' Love for LoTe ' for 
the benefit of " her good friend Mr. Better- 
ton." When she died, she was interred in 
the cloisters of Westminster Abbe^. Colley 
Gibber speaks of "her reputation as an 
actress gradually rising with that of her per- 
son ; never any woman was in such general 
favour of her spectators, which, to the last 
scene of her diamatick life, she maintain'd 
by not being unguarded in ner private cha- 
racter. This discretion contributed not a 
little to make her the card^ the darling of the 
theatre ; for it will be no extravagant thing 
to sav, scarce an audience saw that were 
less than half of them lovers, Mrithont a sus- 
pected favourite among them. . . . She had 
no greater claim to beauty than what the 
most desirable brunette might pretend to. 
Bat her youth and lively aspect threw out 
such a glow of health ana cheerfulness, that 
on the stage few spectators that were not 
past it could behold her without desire. It 
was even the fashion among the gay and 
young to have a taste or tendre ^r Mrs. 
Biacegirdle. She inspired the best authors 
to, write for her, ana two of them [Rowe 
and Congreve], when they gave her a lover 
in a play, seem'd palpably to plead their own 
passions, and make their private court to 
ner in fictitious characters. In all the chief 
parts she acted, the desire was so predomi- 
nant, that no judge could be cola enough 
to consider from what other particular excel- 
lence she became delightful. . . . Yet let me 
say, there were two verv different characters 
in which she acquitted herself with uncom- 
mon applause IStatira and Millamant]. In 
other characters, where singing was a 
neceesarv part of them, her voice and action 

Skve a pleasure which good sense, in those 
ITS, vras not asham'd to give praise to" 
('Apology,' 1740). Anthony Aston (who 
calls her "that Diana of the stage") says 
**she was of a lovely height, with dark- 
brovm hair and eyebrows, l>lack sparkling 
eyes, and a fresh blushy complexion ; and. 
whenever she exerted herself, had an in- 
▼olantary flushinff in her breast, neck, and 
face, having con^nally a cheerful aspect. 

and a fine set of even white teeth ; never 
making an exit, but that she left the audi- 
ence in an imitation of her pleasant counte- 
nance. Genteel comedv was her chief essay, 
and that too when in men's clothes, m 
which she far surmounted all the actresses 
of that and this age. Yet she had a defect 
scarce perceptible, vis. her right shoulder 
a little protended, which, when in men's 
clothes, was cover d by a long or camiMkign 
peruke. She was finely shap'd, ana had 
very handsome legs and feet ; and her salt, 
or walk, was free, manlike, and modest, 
when in breeches. . . . She was, when on 
the stage, diumally charitable, going often 
into Clare Market, and giving money to the 
poor unemploy'd oasket-women, insomuch 
that she would not pass that neighbourhood 
without the thankful acclamations of people 
of all degrees " (' Supplement to C. C/iober's 
lives/ 1747-8). Gilaon, in his ' Comparison 
between the Two Stages' (1702), and Tom 
Brown, in his 'Letters from toe Dead to 
the Livine,' express more than scepticism 
as to the chastity for which the actress was 
famous. For details of her career, in addi- 
tion to the authorities above mentioned, 
see the 'Lives' of Mrs. Oldfleld ' (1730 and 
1741). Genest's ' English Stage ' (1832), and 
D. Cook's 'Hours of the Players' (1881). 
In the last named is a summary of the trial 
of Lord Mohun for the murder of Mountford, 
the actor (g.vX in the course of an attempt 
by Captain Hill to abduct Anne Bracegirdle 
on the night of December 9, 1692. In this 
trial the actress gave evidence.— Jfr». Dracc'

Bristol (Gloucestershire). The first re- 
ference in the local records of Bristol to 
professional stage representations belongs 
to 1530. •• Stage plays," we are told, •• were 
at this period performed at the cost of the 
magistrates ; they had grown out of the 
miracle plays of the clergy, and, there being 
no proper theatre, they were performed at 
the Guildhall " (' Bristol Past and Present,' 
1881). ** Between Michaelmas. 1577, and 
the same season. 1578, the Earl of Leicester's 
players here performed before the mayor 
and aldermen. Shortly after we find Lord 
Berkeley's, Lord Charles Howard's and 
Lord Sheflield's, and the Earl of Sussex's, 
or the Lord Chamberlain's respective com« 
panics here actingbefore the same civic 
dignitaries. . . . The last of these com- 
puiies is that to which Shakespeare became 
attached about the year 1587, and it seems 
more than probable that he may have per* 
formed at the Guildhall. ... In 1503, 
Edward Alleyne played with the company 
of Lord Strange at Bristol " (Taylor's ' Book 
About Bristol '). We read that in 1614 no 
stsge players were allowed to play at Bristol 
at St. James's fair, on account of the plague 
which was raging in Wales. In January. 
1704, Queen Anne, in answer to a present- 
ment of the Grand Jury of Bristol. " decreed 
an order for the regulation of playhouses, 
prohibiting them to act anything contrary 
to religion and ^ood manners. The acting 
of plays in Bristol was prohibited, and 
the theatre in Tucker Street was purchased 
by the Presbyterians and converted into a 
meeting-house" C Bristol Past and Present'). 
Four years later another grand jury pro- 
secuted " Mr. Power and his company for 
acting stage plays within the liberties of 
the city." In addition to the theatre in 
Tucker Street, there appear to have been 
*' temples of the drama" in Stoke's Croft 
and in St. Augustine's Place. "Driven," 
however, from these places "by the by- 
laws," the drama took refuge in a theatre 
built by John Hippisley (q.v.) at Jacob's 
Well— at the foot of Brandon Hill, on the 
north-west side of Bristol. It is at this point 
that Richard Jenkins begins his ' Memoirs 
of the Bristol Stage,' which memoirs he pro- 
fesses to bring down to 1826. Hippisley, 
he teUs us, '* annually brought down to his 
theatre a very respectable company, col- 
lected from the London houses, who plaved 
here during the summer season only." 
Among the members of these troupes, at 
different times, were Macklin, Mrs. Prit- 
chard, Woodward, Thomas King, and John 
Pahner Hippisley died in 1748. In 1764, 




flays Jenkins, " the arrival of Mr. William 
Powell from Drary Lane Theatre formed a 
new and very snccemful era with the com- 
pany at Jacob's Well, and a theatrical 
mama began to rage at Bristol." Before 
that, however. **the citizens of Bristol, 
beginning to take into consideration the 
distance at which the Jacob's Well Theatre 
was situated, determined to erect a new 
one in the heart of the city." A site in 
King Street was selected, and there, on 
Hay 80, 1766, was opened a playhouse on 
which upwards of £6000 had been expended. 
There was, however, still a strong local 
opposition to all theatres, and, as the new 
one was not licensed, the opening enter- 
tainment was described as *'a concert of 
music," between the parts of which was 
given gratis ** a specimen of rhetoric "—to 
wit, a performance of * The Conscious Lovers,' 
with Powell as Young BevU. Between 1766 
and 1770. Dodd. Mrs. Powell, Charles Hol- 
land. Baddeley, Edward Shuter. and Quick, 
all s^peared at the King Street Theatre. 
In 1778 the building received the royal 
licence, with all the advantages thereto 
attaching. In 1817 J. B. Watson bocame 
its manager. We read of visits paid to it 
successively by the elder Kean in 1815, by 
Macready in 1819, by Munden in 1821, by 
Miss Foote in 1828, by Miss Smithson in 
1881, by Charles Kean in 1842. by Buckstone 
in 1848, and by Miss H. Fancit, Creswick, 
and Mdme. Celeste in 1848. In 1855 the 
stock company included Mrs. William Robert- 
son, Henry Marston, and Miss Marie Wilton ; 
in 1858, it comprised George Rignold, Arthur 
Wood, and Miss Madge Robertson ; in 1867. 
Charles Coghlan. Miss Kate and Miss EUen 
Terry also had their early training here. 
J. H. Chute iq.v.)t who had managed the 
theatre for some years, died in 1878, and was 
succeeded by his sons George and James 
M. Chute, who. in their turn, were followed 
in 1881 by A. Melville and in 1893 by John 

Bristol Diamonds. A farce in one

direction of wT Pool, and with Miss Calhoun 
iq.v.) as Calantha and Miss Virginia C^lyle 
as Panthea. The "broken heart" is that 
of Calantha, who, while presiding at some 
court revels, hwrs in quick succession of 
the death of her father (the King of La- 
conia), of the starving of Penthta (sister 
of IthocleM\ and, finally, of the murder of 
Jthoeles, her lover, who nas been lured into a. 
chair with secret springs, and there stabbed 
by an enemv (Orgilut). ** She finishes the 
dance, as ii nothing particular had hap- 
pened. In the next scene she places a 
wedding-ring on the dead finger of Ithoele*. 
She then dies of a Broken Heart " (Oenest). 
"I do not know." says Charles Lamb, 
" where to find, in any play, a catastrophe 
so grand, so solemn, and so surprising as 
this. This is indeed, according to Milton, 
to ' describe high passions and high actions.' 
The fortitude of the Spartan boy who let a 
beast gnaw out his bowels till he died with- 
out expressing a groan, is a faint bodily 
image of this ailaceration of the spirit and 
exenteration of the inmost mina, which 
Calantha, with a holy violence affainst her 
nature, keeps closely covered, till the last 
duties of a wife and a queen are fulfilled."

more genial and humorous mimics than 
Buckstone. His art was of the English

always seemed to attach more importance 
to the humorous than to any other ouality 
of the part he acted. But he did not over- 
look the general aspect of his parts, though 
he clothed them all in a uniform garb of 
the Buckstonian humour, conveyed through 
the inimitable eye-twinkle and mouth-twist 
all knew so well, and the rich, oily chuckle 
of a voice whose sound could produce a 
roar before the actor was seen. He usually 
provoked laughter, however, without forcing, 
and was admirable in the quiet, unerring 
power with which he made a point." "A 
more singular face." says Percy Fitzgerald, 
" could not be devised— the intensely droll 
eyes set in their places a little crookedly, 
a delightfully grotesque nose, cheeks some- 
thing after the pattern of cutlets, and whose 
muscles went up and down, delicately re- 
laxed; and uie mouth I That, drawing it 
over to one side, into a comer, as it were, 
until by tiie act a sort of money-box slit or 
aperture was made ; with this difference, 
that the good thin^is were projected out of 
it, instead of anything being dropped in ;— 
that 'twist' was special to himself." See 
Pascoe's ' Dramatic List ' (1880), ' Actors and 
Actresses of Great Britain and America,' P. 
Fitzgerald's 'Memoirs' and * Principles of 
Comedy,' etc. While manager of the Hay-

of Mount Parnassus : ' a pUee de eireotutanee 
by J.R. Planch^ performed in March. 1853,

Smith's famous entertainment, * The Ascent 
of Mont Blanc,' then in the height of its 
popularity." (2) * Mr. Buckstone's Yoyage 
Bound the Globe in Leicester Sqiiare : ' a 
"revue" by J. R. Planch^ produced at
