--We beg to remind our play-going friends that the above named estimable and deserving lady, and most capable actress, takes a benefit at the Richmond Theatre
No doubt the simple announcement that such is the fact, will suffice to crowd the house with her friends; but to render ‘"assurance doubly sure,"’ we will say, that on that occasion she will personate Rachel
in the romantic drama of the Jewess — a character invested with many attributes to win regard, and which, under the capable direction of Mrs. Phillips
, is hard to beat, so carefully are the various ‘"lights and shadows"’ elaborated and brought out by her genius and skill.
In addition to the above, Miss Jenny Parker
, of the Holliday Street
, formerly a great favorite here, will appear as Jenny Lind
, singing eight songs in the farce of that name.
The extravaganza of Norma, with that exuberant son of Momus
, as the Priestess Norma
, will conclude the evening's entertainment.
Of course everybody who has a spark of dramatic fire in his or her composition, will strain a point to be present.
