The Gaiety Theatre will next week present the comedy, "Rooms for Rent."
At the Windsor, the engagement is announced of Dr. Townsend, alliteratively advertised as "Miraculous Mesmerist and Philosophical Psychologist."
At the Globe, Salsbury's Troubadours will appear in Bronson Howard's latest play, entitled "Green-room Fun," which is said to be a very amusing little piece.
"The World" continues at the Boston Theatre for the rest of the season. In our opinion, it is the best spectacular play ever seen in Boston, from the fact that it possesses what none of the others do, a plot. In addition to this, the machinery and mechanical effects are gorgeous and wonderful, the whole making a performance well worth a visit.
Monday Mrs. J. R. Vincent will take a benefit at that very beneficial theatre, the Museum. Well-conducted theatres, by the way, rarely give benefits; they regard it as begging patronage, and clever managers decline to make charitable institutions of their houses. Mr. Boucicault will appear in "Suil-a-Mor," and the performance will close with the performance, "Poor Pillicoddy."
At the Park, "Lights o' London" will hold the boards until further announcement. Although some very pretty scenery is shown, the poor acting spoils the representation completely. Nor do we agree with the press notices that it is the most powerful of Mr. Sim's melodramas. We think it, on the contrary, very weak in both dialogue and action, although the greatest efforts have been made to cover the defects of the former with the extravagance of the latter.
