Jennie Worrell (b.1850)

Jennie, with her sisters Irene and Sophie, appeared as the Worrell Sisters, a singing and dancing act. Irene and Jennie were famous for their "inimitable double clog dance." They performed in both the legitimate theater and burlesque. In 1858 the sisters made their debut in San Francisco at a "place of amusement," then went on tour in Australia. Months later they debuted at the respectable Metropolitan Theatre in San Francisco. Arriving in New York in 1866, the sisters made their first appearance at Wood's Theatre, in the burlesque known as "Elves." Jennie also appeared in the farce of "Nan, the Good for Nothing." The family managed the Worrell Sisters' New York Theatre from 1867 to 1869. Jennie poses here in a short, satin dance costume.
