The Lottery of love

   Opening on 9 October 1888 at Daly's Theatre, the three-act comedy, freely adapted by Augustin Daly from the French hit Les Surprises du divorce, ran for 105 performances. Ecstatically received by critics and audiences, the play provided wonderful comic roles for John Drew, Mrs. G. H. Gilbert, and James Lewis, while Ada Rehan skillfully milked values from the less substantial role of Miss Buttercorn. The opening night audience cheered the stars and called for a speech from Daly. The comedy continued its success on the road.
