    The Nottingham Theatre Royal also opened in around 1865, and in fact, on the front pages of The Times in the early 19th century, they mention London theatres with plays and that happening there. I suppose with TV yet to be invented, it was the closest one had to proper entertainment back then!
    Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!

    Agreed - proper inoffensive light entertainment for all the family. The problem is that we left it all behind in the 20th century.

    Fun Fact: Tessie O'Shea was one of the other guests on the famous episode of the Ed Sullivan Show where the Beatles made their first appearance in the US.

    But people would probably complain it was too bland.

    That is exactly how tastes have changed in the past 40 years.
