Jack S. Langrishe Traveling Troupe, Deadwood 1876 - 1879

Comedian of the Frontier

The Comedian of The Frontier, sometimes noted as John Langrishe or Colonel "Jolly" Jack, traveled to Deadwood, South Dakota July 15, 1876 with his wife Jeannette, treasurer and troupe manager Jonas Hellawell and the Langrishe Company. The McDaniels Theatre, the first theatre built in Deadwood, was leased July 22, 1876 for use as Jack Langrishe's initial performance hall.

Jack S. Langrishe first performance to a Deadwood audience was July 22, 1876. The Langrishe troupe gave its first full performance July 29, 1876 with the great Irish national drama "Trodden Down or Under Two Flags" which was received as a great success.

John Langrishe theatre manager, actor, writer and newspaper editor performed under the name of Jack Langrishe or Jack S. Langrishe 1876 - 1879 where he won acclaim for his comedic roles in Deadwood, Central City and Lead, South Dakota.

Jack Langrishe produced Deadwood plays by popular playwrights of his time Dion Boucicault Sr. to Augustin Daly. Theatre goers by special request asked for repeat performances of "The Celebrated Divorce Case", "Two Orphans" and a production described in the papers as the gorgeous fairy spectacle "The Forty Thieves" along with a locally written favorite "The Road Agent".

The Langrishe Troupe while in Deadwood was noted as a first class company, always being up for whatever part they portrayed, playing to packed houses, drawing large and intelligent audiences, bringing tears to the eyes of reporters and that their productions were equal to that of New York in price and performance.

Jack S. Langrishe's comedic and acting ability was given special newspaper recognition for his portrayal of the famous characters of Capt Burida, Badger, Fergus Macarthy, Shaun the Post and Templeton Jitt, divorce lawyer.

While in Deadwood, Mr. Langrishe played the characters of John Unit in "The Self", Johnny Reilly, dignified Lord Mount Severn, Cousin Joe in the "Rough Diamond", Terence O’More in "Kathleen Mavoureen", Squire Chivy in "David Garrick", a way up character in "A Party of the Name of Johnson", a character in the side-splitting farce "Irish Dragoon", a character in "The Celebrated Divorce Case", the character of "Jaques", Tommy Tinkle and as the hero in "Slasher and Crasher

In Deadwood newspaper articles dated July 25, 1878 Langrishe was described as a gentleman of keen discrimination in his profession and December 26, 1878 as to have seen more of western life than Mark Twain ever wood. He began to write poetry and as well a book December 1878.

A Change in Career, Jack Langrishe Politician and Newspaper Man

John Langrishe moved to Hailey, Idaho in 1882 to return to acting and to dabble in his new interest of politics. He was elected to the position of Justice November 1886 in Coeur de Alene, Idaho. Jack S. Langrishe would go on to become editor of the Idaho newspaper, The Wardner News, October 1891.

Jack Langrishe died Wardner, Idaho December 12, 1895.

In The Beginning, Learning To Live With Fire

New Yorker Jack S. Langrishe was 36 when he arrived in Deadwood, already a seasoned manager.

The Langrishe-Allen St. Joseph Theatre Company played to Kansas audiences in St. Joseph, Topeka and Junction City from 1859 through the early 1870s. Many of the plays performed during this decade would once again be resurrected and presented fresh and new to a hungry Deadwood audience: "Ten Nights in a Bar Room", "Toodles", "Lady of Lyons", "Hamlet", "Ingomar the Barbarian", "Uncle Tom’s Cabin" and "Othello".

Jack Langrishe along with business partner M. J. Dougherty, operated the Colorado Denver Theatre from 1862 to 1876. The building would later be destroyed by fire in March 1877. During this time the Langrishe Company took to the road, performing in many of the mining towns along the way. From 1870 to 1874, The Langrishe Opera House delighted the good folks of Helena, Montana till its sad demise, once again by fire, of that very same year.

The Langrishe Company experienced the best of times while performing to packed houses in Deadwood, Central City and Lead 1876 through 1878. After the construction of the McDaniels Theatre late 1876, The Langrishe Company surprised and delighted Deadwood audiences with the very latest Broadway hits, many concurrently running in New York and London.

Early 1879 many miners began to depopulate Deadwood in favor of the next gold strike in Leadville, CO. The Langrishe Company's last performance to a Deadwood audience would be presented Aug 14 1879, "Our American Cousin" by Belle and James Gilbert. The Gilberts would go on to follow Jack to Leadville where they performed at the Tabor Opera House through the end of 1879. The Langrishe Theatre building would be leased to a new theatrical company formed by Johnny Rogers, The Metropolitan. The Langrishe building would suffer the fate as so many before her, suffering damage in the Deadwood Fire September 26th 1879.

Little Known Facts:

Langrishe lived next to the Times Newspaper office,
whom often complained of his cat's yowling and being under foot.

Cats were so prominent in his life a special poem was written in his honor "Another Cat Fight".

Langrishe found a petrified horse in the Old Lexington Mine.

Langrishe fell for the Times Newspaper April Fools hoax,
the cremation of a Celestial.

Langrishe and Martha Bullock served on a committee to assist in decorating the Car of State for the Fourth of July parade.

With the introduction of Burlesque and Minstrelsy to the bill, Langrishe's newly arrived New York actors quit.

Fist-a-cuffs broke out between existing troupe members while playing at Ft. Meade.

Jack Langrishe departed Deadwood for Denver
to play an engagement at the Colorado State Fair Sep 13 1879.

Touching Tribute to Dear Old Jack Langrishe

“Jack Langrishe is dead”. To thousands upon thousands in Colorado, Montana, Idaho and Wyoming those few words will fall with mournful cadence. But how mournful, how pregnant with desolation and woe to that lone widow amid the hills of Idaho. No ray of sunshine irradiates the gloom that shrouds her heart. Surrounded by sympathetic friends no doubt she is, but they are not her “lover husband,” for such he was from the beginning to the end. Associated with them for years, I can truthfully say no married couple ever lived more in harmony, or more fully demonstrated “each for the other and in that other for their dearer self” than Jack Langrish and his most worthy wife.

“Jack” Langrishe builded his own monument. The outgoing, present and rising generations will cry with one accord “requiescat in pace.” “He was a good man.” And I, who worked by his side for years, can say “God is with you, Jack. I shall never look upon his like again.”
