"The Hyperion Theater at New Haven, one of the twenty-five theaters owned by S. Z. Poli, is to be rebuilt. The theater will close on Saturday, April 26, and on the following Monday the work of demolishing the interior of the structure will begin. It is intended to let the four outside walls remain, but the interior will be entirely rebuilt as a modern theater."
"Prof. D. M. Bristol's equescurriculum will begin at the Hyperion to-night. The Boston Herald says: 'Boston has seen some wonderful performances of educated horses, but never any which surpasses the one under direction of Prof. Bristol, now at the Globe Theater. The tricks and antics of these horses are simply amazing.'"
"The Hyperion is now one of the finest theaters in the country. The new name was suggested by Mrs. A. E. Winchell. It will be opened on Thursday evening, when everyone will have a chance of seeing for themselves the many changes which have taken place. Manager Bunnell and Dr. Winchell are justly proud of their new (as it were) theater."
"G. B. Bunnell, who has been known as the successful manager of dime museums, has leased Carll's opera house at New Haven, and announces that he shall produce first class plays, opera, etc., and more than maintain its reputation. He wants it distinctly understood that the management has nothing whatever in connection with the museum... George B. Bunnell takes control of Carll's Opera House on May 1, and from that time it will be known as the Hyperion."
