has played Shylock and Sir Giles Overreach
at the Haymarket. --Lastly, John Brougham
has produced his comedy of "Playing with Fire," at the Princess Theatre, himself as Dr. Savage

as Herbert Waverley.
The play had unequivocal success.
The criticism on the acting runs thus : "Mr. J. Brougham
, as Dr. Savage
, is exactly the cool, easy, business-like man, and his natural disposition does not quit him in the midst of his ludicrous perplexities.
Mr. G. Jordan
, who plays Waverly
, is newly arrived from America
, and, with his handsome figure and good delivery, promises to stand well among the representatives of gentlemen on the stage."
