Pepys’ Shows, via Theatricaliafreshen anew

In reference to a production of The Unfortunate Lovers on 7th March 1664, Samuel Pepys noted:

“My wife and I by coach to the Duke’s house, where we saw “The Unfortunate Lovers;” but I know not whether I am grown more curious than I was or no, but I was not much pleased with it, though I know not where to lay the fault, unless it was that the house was very empty, by reason of a new play at the other house.”
