|Patience > No. 2 Company on tour in Portsmouth
From The Era (London, England), Saturday, December 10, 1881; Issue 2255.
THEATRE ROYAL. — Lessee, Mr. J. H. Franckeiss; Manager, Mr. J.W. Boughton. The event of the week has been the production, for the first time here, of Messrs. Gilbert and Sullivan's Patience; or, Bunthorne's Bride. The opera is as diverting as it is satirical, and its performance on Monday night was one of the greatest successes of the season.
The amiable acting and singing of the artists leave nothing to be desired. The cast includes Miss Marion Grahame as Patience; Miss Fanny Harrison, the Lady Jane; Mr. Richard Purdon, Bunthorne; Mr. W. Greyling, Archibald; Mr. F. Federici, Colonel Calverley; and others.
