From The Courier-Journal, April 23, 1864
The Theatres – At Wood’s, Mr. and Miss Couldock close their highly successful engagement, and present Shakspeare’s play the Merchant of Venice, on the tercentenary anniversary of its author’s birth. Mr. Couldock’s Shylock, and the Portia of his interesting daughter, will both be well worth witnessing. At the Louisville, the dashing Leo Hudson appears as Dick Turpin the highwayman, in the drama from Ainsworth’s novel of Rookwood. We shall see how she will look the daring robber, and how boldly she will ride the animal that assumes the role of Black Bess.
