"The Victoria, at a bird’s eye view, looks like a big twinkling pearl, all white and gold with the opals of electricity studding it in profusion… Gorgeous carpets, splendid lounges and all the ultra-elegance the metropolis loves were to be seen everywhere."

New York American, March 3, 1899


"In Resurrection as Prince Vladimir, he swept all before him and gave one of the few very great performances of the year. His magnificent work that night – and old stagers who had watched his work for a quarter of a century said that he had surpassed himself – was a resurrection in more senses than one. It made New York playgoers realize for one thing how rarely nowadays a great actor is heard or seen."
