À PLAY IN SEVEN ACTS. Translated from the original German Drama, written by the celebraccal
Klotzboggenhaggen, by Fabius Pictor.
[From the Meteors.]
CT I. Scene I. Previous to the drawing up of the
curtain, an appropriate overture is to be played. I shall endeavour to prevail on Messrs. Dussek and Kelly to club their well-known talents, and also to rummage their heads, and ransack their porte-feuilles, for something frappant. As soon as the accustomed signal of the prompter's whistle is heard, the band (with considerable additions) will emerge from their subterraneous caverns; and, after being duly arrayed, they will shoulder their fiddles, &c. The instant Mr. Shaw taps the candle-lkreen with his bow, the lights, of every kind, will be suddenly extinguished !!! -There's novelty for you! This circumstance alone will crowd the theatre for months to come. Figure to VOL. IY.
