Excerpt from The Saturday Review of Politics, Literature, Science, and Art, 1859, Vol. 7

But - and this is the real moral of the calamity - are there not other theatres in London in which much greater dangers exist than at the'vic-torizv - and this in spite of Building Aces, surveyors. Commissioners. Muffin-ates, and police? Or. After all, mnat we have an Edile, w ose businesa it shall be to repro dent the interests of public safety in the construction of new buildings P Exeter Hall is notoriously ill provided with means of exit; and within the last week a new theatre. The Adelphi. Has been Opened with. As far as we can see, no im rementon its old entrance-the width of a single house in t 0 Strand. Indeed, this seems to be the mode of building theatres. 'naging from the Adelphi. The Shoreditch, and the Strand T tron. Street; frontage in too valuable to acquire, and large theatres are built om the vards of contiguous houses. Or rowa of houses, with only the sacrifice ofa single house facing the street. It in pos aib e that the new Adelphi Theatre may he provided with ample means of exit rearn'ards. Or in some ol' the dingy courts adjacent. But. With the Victoria tragedy before us. We cannot but look with horror on its narrow entrance if such a calamity an that which has in succession destroyed every theatre in London - or even an idle alarm of tire - should hur an audience of three or four thousand persons into that misera Io little entranoe of some thirty feet in the Strand, which is the only visible moans emptying this very handsome and otherwise commodious edition.
