About This Item

[Booth, John Wilkes] BOSTON MUSEUM SECOND WEEK OF J. WILKES BOOTH THE EMINENT YOUNG TRAGEDIAN, Who has been honored by the attendance of LARGE AND ENTHUSIASTIC AUDIENCES, AND WILL APPEAR This Tuesday Evening, May 3, 1864, IN SHAKESPEARE'S PLAY OF ROMEO AND JULIET! Boston: The Boston Museum, 1864. A theatrical playbill, 32 cm x 11 cm. A trimmed theatrical broadside advertisement, giving notice of a continued successful run of John Wilkes Booth's appearance as Romeo in Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet in Boston in May 1864, less than a year before he shot President Abraham Lincoln at Ford's Theatre on April 15, 1865, in Washington. This rare surviving playbill was at one time mounted in an album, with traces of the paper remaining adhered to the verso, otherwise in remarkably good almost fine condition.
