NO THOROUGHFARE. BOSTON THEATRE: Monday Evening, March 27, 1871.; Founded upon Charles Dickens' admired novel of that name, and adapted to the stage by Charles Fechter Esq., as originally played by him at the Adelphi, London
[Boston?], 1871. Single sheet folded once to form four pages. Engraved borderds and illustrations in text. Folded: 10-1/4" x 6-9/16" A playbill for a production of "No Thoroughfare" at the Boston Theatre, with Charles Fechter playing the role of Jules Obenreizer, and Carlotta Leclercq in the role of Marquerite. The playbill has many local advertisements and some information about the theatre company in the years 1870 and 1871. Charles Fechter, travelled from London to the United States in 1870, and enjoyed a very succesful career in Boston. Critics disaproved of his "Hamlet" (also advertised on this playbill) but were captivated by his refined style, and Continental training (Hornblow, vol. 2, p. 214). Slight age-toning to paper; a few small tears at edges and one central pin hole that runs through all four pages; overall very good. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
