Little Theatre

A Topographical and Statistical description of the County of Middlesex, etc (1810) by George Alexander Cooke

The Little Theatre in the Hay

Nearly half-way down the Haymarket , upon the east side, stands a little summer theatre , neatly fitted up, and capable of accommodating a considerable audience; it contains three tiers of boxes, the tickets for which are 5 shillings each; a pit, the tickets at 3 shillings and also a two and one shilling gallery. This theatre which is only open during the period of Covent Garden and Drury-lane Theatres being closed , is held under a patent, purchased by the father of the present proprietor Mr Coleman, from Samuel Foote of comic memory. There is no second-price taken at this theatre.

To be sure, London was rather thin; but, however, the Little Theatre was open.
