THEATRES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 September 1891

WWSMim Tho only theatrical event of interest during the' past month was the appearance of J. L. Sullivan, the pugilist, at the Opera House, in a piece specially written for him by Mr. Harrison. A crowded house greeted the ox-ohampion on his 'first' night in Melbourne, but the audience was disappointed, inasmuch as Mr. Sullivan did not. appear . to advantage as a prize fighter, but only as a vory indifferent stock 'actor. . At the Theatre Royal Miss Laura Villiers and her company have not hit the publio taste. The Dancing Girl, which was regarded, as her trump card, was almost a failure, and had to be i replaoed after a fortnight by Woodbarrow Farm, which waa succeeded by .the Adelphi drama, A Celebrated Case, in which the company have .appeared to better advantage. At the Bijou Messrs. Brough and Bouoicault , produced Peril with gratifying results, and on the ,22nd .ult.
