Brother Henry performed and he and his wife became joint leaseholders of the Theatre Royal. Henry put some of best Theatrical Acts of the Time, supported By actors from the Italian Opera. Modern Drama Actors Singers,J L Toole, Madam Celeste, Kaen and Robson, Helen Faucit, Paul Bedford, Alfred Wigan, Mcsdames Ristori and Titens,Mario and Giuglini, Mrs Wyndham also played many parts. Most of the famous acts from Stage and Theatre played at the Theatre Royal Edinburgh, until the fire of 23rd May 1853. The site was acquired by the City for a sum of £5,000.00 and soon after the erection of the new General Pose office. The performers were far from being out of work performing all over the World as they say the Show must go on.
