"A" ('Princess Ida' No. 2) Company in Bedford

The Era (London, England), Saturday, June 28, 1884; Issue 2388.

CORN EXCHANGE. — Princess Ida (company A) opened here on Monday for two nights, but, owing to the fine weather, received but scant patronage.

The scenery and dresses were excellent. Mr. David James, jun., (King Gama), gave a capital rendering of "the disagreeable man;" Mr. Cecil Burt (Hilarion) possesses a very fine voice; and able support was given by Mr. Frank Boyle and Mr. Hugh Seton as Cyril and Florian respectively.

Owing to the sudden indisposition of Miss Florence Dysart, the part of the Princess was taken, at very short notice, by Miss St. Ives, who scored a decided success.
