The Passing regiment

   Augustin Daly's five-act comedy with music, adapted from the German comedy Krieg im Frieden, opened at his theatre on 10 November 1881 for 103 performances. This genial, innocuous play depicts the Excelsior Regiment of the National Guard stationed at New York's Narragansett Pier where romantic entanglements ensue, including between characters acted by John Drew and Ada Rehan.
