--The name of Mr. I. B. Phillips
, the popular Stage Manager
of the Richmond Theatre
, is heralded for a benefit tonight.
The Theatre-going public owe a debt of gratitude to Mr. Phillips
for the manner in which he has superintended the production of the different pieces which have ministered to their pleasure during the present season, while the truth stands confessed that to his accomplished lady is due much of the sclat with which they have been greeted.
A more correct, deserving and able actress than Mrs.
P. would be hard to find, while universal consent accords to her consort the character of an amiable gentleman and pains-taking and deserving member of the corps dramatique.
The bill of fare to-night is varied and interesting.
First on the list is the ‘"Romance of a Poor Young Man;"’ second, the thrilling drama of the ‘"Mute Spy;"’ thirdly, singing and dancing of a variegated and interesting kind that must win applause.
We hope that Mr. Phillips
will have a ‘"big house."’
