Product Description

The Greenes were representative of a class of journeymen actors, who received but little attention by chroniclers of early nineteenth-century theatre history. Along with hundreds of other craftsmen of their day, they experienced frequent moments of tribulation and rare occasions of triumph-respected artists who bore their daily vicissitudes as an expected part of the theatrical life. They traveled from place to place applying their craft, appearing with many of the major performers of the era. Mrs. Greene's personal memoirs were originally serialized in The New York Clipper in the 1860s by Charles Durang, who supplied additional material from his experiences as an actor, promoter, and dancing master. The original publication has now been greatly expanded by William L. Slout. Contains a helpful Chronology, comprehensive Notes, and a detailed Bibliography, and Index.
