The Lyceum Stock Company.
Of "Nell Gwynne," the opening bill
of the Lyceum Stock Company, the
San Antonio Daily Light says:
The Lyceum Company is a very
capable one and the title role was ar
tistically portrayed by Miss Ella Uros
jean. She won the auaience upon
her lirst appearance, and upon each
succeeding appearance was received
witA a shower of applause. Her im
personation of the actress in which
she disguises herself as a court mes
senger to ascertain the king's love for
bar was a clever bit of acting. The
play was beautifully costumed and the
parts were in capable hands, A
pleasing feature was a pretty minuet
in the third act. During the play
specialties were introduced, which
were some of the best ever seen in
this city.
The above company will be at the
opera house next week, beginning
Monday eight.
