Court Theatre, Sloane-square, Chelsea—This pretty little house, originally a dissenting chapel, was converted into a theatre, and after some years passed into the hands of Mr. Hare, by whom it has since been worked on the same plan as that which has distinguished the management of Mrs. Bancroft at the Prince of Wales's, and with similar success. Next to the Prince of Wales's, Folly, and the Royalty, it is the smallest house in London, but is very prettily and tastefully decorated. NEAREST Railway Station, Sloane-square; Omnibus Route, Sloane-street; Cab Rank, Sloane-square.
