POTTER AND BBLbBW.
It has bten five years since Mrs. Potter and Mr. Bellew last visited
the western country. " On their last American tour, two years ago,
they did not play west of tho Mississippi river. Mrs. Potter made
her professional debut at the Haymarket Theater in London in
September, 1886, in Wiifcie Collins' drama, "Man and Wife.,' Sho
was kindly received by London critics generally, who pronoenced
her as possessing marked dramatic ability. Later on in the same
year she played at tho Gayety Thratre in "Civil War" and "Loyal
Love." In October 1887 sho made her first professional bow to an
American audienco at tho Fifth Avenue Theatre, New York, in
"Mile do Bremier,' and since that time has appeared in different
plays in nearly every city where English is spoken. Mr. Kyrle
Bellew has accompanied Mrs. Potter ever since her London debut
and is an actor of wide experience and wonderful facility. Ho has
been for many years prominently beforo the public, both iu the old
and tho new world, as a leading man who has few equals- and no
superiors. He possesses in a marked degree that indescribablo quality
called personal magnetism, and is withal a man of most prepos
sessing appearance. Mr. Bellew was born in London, but at an
early age removed to India, where his youth was spent. He ran
away from Calcutta and was a sailor for two years. He afterwards
had considerable experience as a journalist, and it was during this
time tha his natural love for tho stage developed itself. For
several years he played leading parts in Calcutta, whero ho became
a great favorite. During his career ho has played in every theatre
in London, in almost every leading play of modern times, together
with all the Shakespearean pieces, and was for a long time leading
man in Wallack's Stock company at Wallack's Theatre, New York,
where he was almost worshiped by metropolitan audiences, and
particularly those of the fair sex. These two artists will appear at
the Lansing Theatre Friday, August 28th in "In Society."
