Some would undoubtedly argue that we don't need playerette -- just refer to players, regardless of the sex or gender, I suppose of the frequent flyer. That's OK, but we're here to make up new words more than be sticks-in-the-mud and give new meanings of old words. We do both, of course, but have a preference for the former. We also have bachelorette for an unmarried young woman.
I'm convinced that some feminine forms are here to stay. When we start calling such women bachelors, I'll -- well, I won't be doing anything.
I'll be all mellowed out and taking it easy in my urn. Another feminine form we'll be keeping: And I'd hardly be surprised to see the current trend to call females who act actors reverting to calling them actresses.
We have a copy of a bill of " Othello" produced in this disguise at Newport, R. Of jealousy, our being's bane, Mark the small cause, and the most dreadful pain.
Allyn —will depict the character of a specious villain, in the regiment of Othello, who is so base as to hate his commander on mere suspicion, and to impose on his best friend.
Of such characters, it is to be feared, there are thousands in the world, and the one in question may present to us a salutary warning. Hallam —will delineate a young and thoughtful officer, who is traduced by Mr. Allyn, and getting drunk, loses his situation and his general's esteem. All young men, whatsoever, take example from Cassio. The ll effects of drinking would you see?
Be warn'd, and fly from evil company. Morris- will represent an old gentleman, the father of Desdemona, who is not cruel or covetous, but is foolish enough to dislike the noble Moor, his son-in-law, because his face is not white.
Such prejudices are very numerous, and very wrong. Fathers beware what sense and love ye lack,'Tis crime, not color, makes the being black. Quelch —will depict a fool, who wishes to become, a knave. Such is the friendship of rogues-take heed.
When fools would knaves become. Morris-will represent a young and virtuous wife, who being wrongfully suspected, gets smothered in an adjoining room by her husband. Reader, attend; and e'er thou goest hence Let fall a tear to helpless innocence. Obedience and gratitude Are things as rare as they aregood. Various other dialogues, too numerous to mention here, will be delivered at night, all adapted to the improvement of the mind and manners.
The whole will be repeated on Wednesday and Saturday. Tickets six shilling each, to be had within. Commencement at seven, conclusion at half-past ten, in order that every spectator may,go home at a sober hour, and reflect upon what he has seen before he retires to rest. God save the king, And long may he sway East, north, and south, And fair America. Many have undoubtedly witnessed " Othello," without "being aware of the many moral lessons it inculcates.
At the Board Alley Theatre on the 5th of October was presented, " A Moral Lecture announced in five parts," wherein, says the bill, the pernicious tendency of,libertinism will be exemplified in the' Tragical History -of George Barnwell, or the London Merchant. Harper, Morris, Watt, Murrey. Solomons, Redfield, Miss Smith, Mrs. The company consisted of Mons.
Gray, Miss Smith, Miss Chapman, and the performances had some claims to the character, of intellectual entertainments. The opponents of theatricals were struck with terror, and many. A writer in the Chronie, Nov. Shall vile minions, from a foreign land Affect to treat with open, marked contempt The mild influence of our government In the prevention of those evils -Which experience and well known prudence Long since stampt by the slow finger of time With wisdom and success?
What insult is not to be awaited From men, who, regardless of their honor Trample upon our laws - our sacred rights, - When the history of whose lives would put Modesty and every kindred virtue To the blush! Just after the first act of the play had been performed, on the 5th of December,the sheriff, in pursuance of a warrant from their Honors, Justice Greenleaf and Barrett, to apprehend sundry persons, said to be infractors of the law against theatrical entertainments, executed his duty so far as Mr.
Harper was concerned, being obliged to return non inventus on others included in the warrant. The audience finding themselves baulked, were uproarious. Governor Hancock was always a bitter opponent of the theatre, and, supposing that the arrest was made at his instigation, the spectators leaped on to the stage, tore down the arms of the State which decorated a tablet, and trod under foot a portrait of Hancock, which hung in front of the stage box.
Judge Tudor exhorted the audience to be orderly, and several gentlemen immediately came forward and became bound for the appearance of Harper; and at the request of the manager, the audience quietly withdrew, receiving their entrance money. We have heard another version of this affair, which implicates one Mr. Jerry Allen, who was the sheriff at the time. It is said, that after Alien had done his duty, and taken several gentlemen as surety for Harper's appearance, that he was induced, by a few of his private fiends with whom he was on good terms, to take a seat and witness the rest of the performances, which he did, greatly to the amusement of those present.
We Are inclined to believe, however, from information in our possession, that the play did not proceed, and that sheriff Allen executed his duty with becoming dignity, and retired from the theatre with due respect for his office. The examination was held in " Faneuil Hall," which was thought most proper to proceed to business in, as his Honor Justice Greenleaf's official chamber would not admit the numerous spectators who waited with anxious expectation the result of this important inquiry.
Attorney Sullivan read a special order from Governor Hancock. Otis, counsel for Harper, objected to the legality of the warrant, as contrary to the fourteenth article of the Declaration of Rights, which requires that no warrant shall be issued except upon complaints made on oath. Tudor, also, of his council, supported Mr. Otis, which point was combated by Mr. The justices acceded, and the defendant was discharged amid loud applause. A few days after this transaction, the legislature, owing to the prevalence of the small pox in Boston, met at Concord, when Governor Hancock made allusion to "an open insult upon the laws and government of the Commonwealth," and recommended a more rigid enforcement of them for the future.
It does not appearithat any further prosecution was made, although the law was to remain in force till Governor Hancock was at the time in very feeble health, and died the following October.
The law became a dead letter, and was subsequently repealed. Before the completion of the Exhibition Room, Charles Stuart Powell arrived in Boston, and gave public entertainments. The following is his advertisement: Laughter, with reason, Is surely no treason, Proportion of grace can have no cause to blush; And the sons of true merit No grudge can inherit, To see rank impostors exposed by the Brush. Powell appeared at the Exhibition Room, and gave his " Brush," and his name will frequently appear in subsequent chapters.
At the Board Alley Theatre, the " Contrast," a comedy in five acts, the first American play ever produced by a regular company of comedians, was performed. It was written by Royal Tyler, Esq. It was quite apopular piece, and, inwas published by subscription. On the 14th, Mr. He concludes by saying: An association was formed, on the joint stock principle, comprising the liberal and wealthy citizens of Boston, and Messrs. Perez Morton, Joseph Russell, Samuel Brown, Charles Bulfinch, and Henry Jackson, were the trustees, who took measures for building the Boston Theatre, which was in process of erection during the year After the destruction of the Board Alley Theatre, entertainments were given at Mr.
One of these must have been of a unique character, judging from the announcement, which promises that" Master Henry, from London, will walk on his belly in the shape of a camel. Master Manly will balance his whole body on the edge of a candle-stick, without the assistance of hand or foot.
He will pick up two pins with his eyes, and a dollar at the same time with his mouth; rolls like a whale in the sea. District of Massachusetts, and the contents are worthy of a passing notice, if from their singularity only. The author states, that "as the theatre is once more become the theme of general conversation, and the minds of many appear to be filled and agitated with the subject, it will not be improper to throw together a few observations on the Stage.
Thus the piazza would become one of the most healthy'and delightful walks in the world, and the gentlemen and ladies would ibe there sheltered from rain.

It is asked, would they object to sitting and deliberating in a temple or iplace of worship? No, such places are intended to make men good!
Exhibitions are only in the night time, the assembly sits but seldom and rarely in the night; but any inconvenience on that score may be obviated, by sitting down the company at a distance, or even preventing exhibitions on such nights.
The third story will serve for a military hall, and other purposes. That part of the building devoted to the theatre, will save to the town the great expense of building a hall for town meetings, beingvery capacious, lightsome and excellently fitted for such use; the galleries will be so constructed, that the feeblest voice below, will be very audible, and distinctly heard in those galleries.
If the legislature of Massachusetts established such a theatre, and take proper measures to procure persons for actors who are really excellent in their way, and make the most wholesome regulations for the government thereof, its effects on the manners of the people, must be truly astonishing.
History will undoubtedly mark an era so favorable to the intellectual powers of man, in this western world. Not only the governors of the State, but all the members of that patriotic assembly, will be recorded as promoters of a design so.
The ideas of the author were in advance of the times, however, and his plans were not listened to. THE opening of the Boston Theatre, in Federal'street, marks an era in the history of the drama of this city. The change in public opinion, which at that time'took place, was the dawn of that spirit of liberality which has since infused itself into our local institutions. It gave an impetus to theatrical representations by allowing temples to be dedicated to Thalia, and Melopemene, and fostered a taste for this innocent and instructive amusement, which has been cultivated, wherever civilization has shed its illumined rays of wisdom, by -men of purity, intellect, and genius.
Charles Stuart Powell, who visited England, into procure the company, and Baker, assisted by the trustees, who retained a controlling power over the affairs. The theatre in those days was considered a fine specimen of architecture and creditable to the architect, Mr.
It was one hundred and forty feet long, sixty-one feet wide, and forty feet high. The entrances to the different parts of the house were distinct, and at the time the opponents of the theatre made strong use of this fact, alleging that by affording a special door to that portion of the house, usually the resort of the vile of both sexes, a premium on vice was offered.
In the front there was a projecting arcade, which enabled carriages to land company under cover. The interior of the building was tastefully decorated. The stage opening was thirty-one feet wide, ornamented on each side by two columns, and between them a stage door and projecting iron balcony. Over the columns a cornice and a balustrade were carried across the opening; above was painted a flow of crimson drapery, and the arms of the Union and of the State of Massachusetts, blended with emblems, tragic and comic.
A ribbon depending from the arms, bore the motto, " All the world's a stage. This was fifty-eight feet long, thirty-six wide, and twentysix high, richly ornamented with Corinthian columns and pilasters. There were also spacious card and tea rooms, and kitchens with proper conveniences. The performances on the opening night were as follows: All the characters being the first time they were ever performed by the present company will be personated by Messrs.
Powell, and Kenny; Miss Harrison, Mrs. Baker, and the Child by Miss Cordelia Powell, being her first appearance on any stage.
Jones and Miss Baker. The other characters, by Messrs. As we shall ever wish to give what we conceive to be the most harmonic to the soul, and congenial to the general sentiments of our brethren of the land we live in, the following distribution of the music will precede the drawing up of the curtain: The prefatory Address, by Mr. Powell, between the Acts.
The doors will be opened at five, and the curtain drawn up precisely at six o'clock. He was born in Camarthen, Wales, and commenced his theatrical career at an early age. His father was a manager of a theatre, and had a respectable company and circuit.
Powell, at an early period of his life, devoted his attention to printing, and when he came to America, inwith his brother, Charles Stuart Powell, he brought with him considerable printing apparatus, which he used in printing the programmes of the theatre. His name will occur frequently in this record. This lady was born in Maraison, the county of Cornwall, in the yearand was first cousin to Rev. Henry Martin, an eminent divine. Miss Harrison, previous to her visit to this country, appeared before George the Third, by command; and she had also frequent opportunities of performing the second characters to the queen of tragedy, Mrs.
Siddons, who was so much pleased with her acting, that she obtained permission for Miss Harrison to accompany her through a circuit of the provincial theatres.
She was the original in this city, as will be seen, of many characters which still retain a position among the favorite theatrical representations of the day; and her impersonations of Shakspeare's heroines entitle her to a rank among the highest in her profession. Powell died in December, Garden, was the first manager of the Federal Street Theatre. A gold medal was offered for the best written prologue, and the prize was unanimously adjudged to Thomas Paine, then only eighteen years of age, who afterwards took the name of his father, Robert Treat Paine, by leave of the legislature.
This production was delivered by C. Powell in the character of Apollo, and was highly creditable to the poet's genius. The theatre was crowded on the opening night. It would not have been possible to have selected from the whole catalogue of English plays one which would have been more appropriate to the occasion than " Gustavus Vasa," a tragedy by H. Brooke, written inbut which, on account of its political sentiments, admirably adapted, however, to this locality, corresponding as it did with the opinions of a great majority of the citizens, was prohibited to be played, even after it had been rehearsed at Drury Lane.
The author, however, was not injured by the prohibition; for on publishing the book by subscription, he cleared a thousand pounds. The theatre was well patronized, entertainments being given three evenings each week; and in order to conciliate the more rigid inhabitants, it was announced that on no account would the evenings fall upon those devoted to religious services, which were held in Rev.
Belknap's church in the same street. In Philadelphia, about the same time, a riot occurred, owing to the orchestra refusing to respond to the call; seats were broken, and the play terminated. No difficulty of this kind, however, occurred, though Powell and Baker quarrelled; and the latter, with his wife, withdrew from the company after a few months, and gave Dramatic Olios at Concert Hall. The season closed on the fourth of July, The second season commenced Dec. Pownall who died in was engaged.
She was a singer of considerable ability, and gained great applause in opera divertisements. On the opening night the bills announced that a comedy written by Shakspeare, entitled "As You Like It," and " Rosina," would be performed. The company consisted of C.
Taylor was a new face, and gained great credit as Octavian in the " Mountaineers. He was born in Detroit and raised there until, as a late teenager during the Viet Nam War era, traveled to and remained in Israel; eventually becoming an Israeli citizen.
As a newly arrived emigre, Israeli territory had no emotional meaning to him. If the Arabs wanted land for peace, so be it. After a period in the Israeli Army, he went to work for the newly formed Likud Party. Inthe left-leaning Labor Party lost to the right-of-center Likud Party.
This was the first time since the founding of Israel that the Labor Party lost a national election. Likud asserts the equivalent to America's 19th century belief in Manifest Destiny by calling for the annexation of all the land that makes up Israel, including the West Bank, Golan Heights, Gaza Strip, and Jerusalem. While taking a hawkish stance against the Palestinians, they were the first party to negotiate peace with its neighbors. At that time, all Chafets could recall were his memories of the Bible-thumping hypocritical evangelical preachers from Detroit.
Begin liked them from the start. The leadership of American Jewry was scandalized and outraged, but Begin didn't care because they "were willing to go to mat for him against Jimmy Carter over the issue of Jewish settlements in the West Bank and Gaza. For example, many American Jews saw the attack on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon as a discrete act of terrorism, like the bombing in Oklahoma City.
They heard Jerry Falwell blame the attack on American immorality and others call for severing America's close ties with Israel. Chafets supports Israeli belief that this assault on America is part of a worldwide jihad against Jews and Christians alike.
Chafets meets with two Evangelical Christians in the Israeli city Meggido, which some say is the site of the future Armageddon. They believe that the Bible does make predictions; nations do fit into certain power patterns and most important of all, the Jews have returned to the Promised Land after two thousand years in exile. No one, until Evangelical Christians became politically active.
Now there is a great suspicion that "born again" George W. Bush is using his political position to push a biblical agenda.
