This little Theatre has grown to its present size through many changes, and has been eked by little and little to a respectable establishment; and from the "Mud Theatre" (a name occasioned by its low situation) has obtained the more euphonious appellation of the Adelphi. It is now but rarely opened. It is to be found at the corner of Saratoga and Belvidere streets.
