St. Clair, Sallie

ELLSLER’S ATHENEUM—THE WOMAN IN WHITE.—The Atheneum was again crowded last night by one of the largest audiences of the season. Miss Sallie St. Clair played Capitola Black in the “Hidden Hand” with a spirit, vivacity and a vein of humor that drew frequent plaudits and bursts of laughter from the audience. Nor were the other characters in this favorite play without their fitting representatives. The performance of the entire piece was most artistic and successful.

On to-morrow (Monday) night, will be produced the grand, Romantic and Sensational Drama of “The Woman in White.” Not the production of the same name produced here some two or three years ago, but a splendid and comprehensive drama, written expressly for Miss Sallie St. Clair by Charles Barras, Esq., and performed with immense success everywhere.

The cast of the piece is a very powerful one, comprising Miss St. Cair in her great double impersonation of Mad. Ann Catherick and Laura Fairlie; Mr. Barras as old Fairlie, a bunch of human nerves; Mr. McCollom as Walter Hartwright; Mrs. Ellsler as Marran; Mr. Ellsler as Gilmore; Mr. Lewis as the Ghost-seeing Jacob; and the balance of the company admirably distributed throughout. We predict for “The Woman in White” a success here, equal to that which has greeted it elsewhere.




John Ellsler, —Manager.
