A collection providing basic information on performances at London's Sans Pareil/Adelphi Theatre from 1806-1900. Although the Sans Pareil Theatre was built in 1806 as a private theater by merchant John Scott for his aspiring actress daughter, by 1851 the London Times called the Adelphi Theatre "the most popular theatre of the metropolis with the best company in London." By studying the record of each season, theater history researchers can learn what was produced by whom and can trace the changing taste of audiences. Daily calendars and seasonal summaries provide chronologies of the season with names of authors and play titles, some plot summaries, biographical information, reviews, information relative to specific evening performances, curtain times, ticket prices, charity performances, cast lists, genres, and productions by visiting companies.
