Event Comment: Mainpiece [1st time; C 5, by Richard Cumberland. Prologue and Epilogue by the author (Pocket Magazine, Mar. 1795, pp. 190, 191)]: With new Scenes, &c. Powell, 27 Feb.: Wheel of Fortune rehearsed at 11; 28 Feb.: Wheel of Fortune rehearsed at 10. "The character of Penruddock is [Kemble's] greatest performance, and I believe it to be a perfect one. It is admirable...because the very defect which hurts his general style of acting, that studious and important preciseness, which is affectation in all his other characters, contributes to the strength, to the nature of Penruddock" (Leigh Hunt, Critical Essays on the Performers of the London Theatres, 1807, p. 8).
