Página 182 - This piece was received with greater applause than was ever known. Besides being acted in London sixtythree days without interruption, and renewed the next season with equal applause, it spread into all the great towns of England; was played in many places to the thirtieth and fortieth time ; at Bath and Bristol fifty, &c.
Página 313 - English theatre, is one of the most monstrous inventions that ever entered into a poet's thoughts.
