Corrections and clarifications
• A review of a novel that imagines the lives of John Wilkes Booth’s parents and siblings said that, while attending a play, Abraham Lincoln was “shot in the head by one of the actors, who … climbed into his box and pulled out a pistol”. Booth was a well-known actor but was not part of the cast, and he entered the presidential box through its door (Background to an assassination, 19 March, Saturday magazine, p73).
• An article about the new play Marvellous, based on the life of Neil Baldwin, placed the New Vic theatre in Stoke-on-Trent. It is actually in neighbouring Newcastle-under-Lyme (Stoke celebrates its irrepressible son of warm welcomes, 12 March, p37).
