Christmas   in the Works of
Stanley Weintraub

Shaw:An Autobiography 1856 - 1898
New York: Weybright and Talley Books, 1969


p. 225

....In my boyhood in the 1860s there were two theatres in Dublin. The Royal, in Hawkins-street, was nobly spacious, lofty, beautifully proportioned, and in every architectural way worthy of the arts which were its home....The highlights of the season were the Christmas pantomime, the Opera....and the visits of Barry Sullivan, a very great Shakespearean star actor....

There was one other theatre, the Queen's in Brunswick-street....but respectable people did not...frequent it, as it a theatre for crude melodrama.....
