AUGUSTIN DALY and ADA REHAN
Signatures from the theatrical manager and one of his talents, Rehan, dated 1896
Signature: "Agustin Daly/Nov 14/96", "Ada Rehan", 6¾x4. American theatrical manager and dramatist AUGUSTIN DALY (1838-1899) is best known as the operator of Daly's Theatre on Broadway, where he presented noted productions of Shakespearean comedies. Daly, a drama critic for several New York City newspapers from 1859, made his debut as a manager with his melodrama, Under the Gaslight, his first play that was not an adaptation of another work. Daly, who also adopted plays from French and German, opened his first theater in 1869, and would reign as the "autocrat of the stage" for some thirty years in both New York and London. A strict disciplinarian who set high standards of production for his "company of stars", including John Drew, Clara Morris and Ada Rehan, Daly was a biographer as well as a playwright. Irish-born American stage actress ADA REHAN (1859-1916), known for her comic skills, was featured in acting companies of major Eastern cities, and toured Europe to acclaim. Her noted performances including several of Shakespeare's comedies, the role of Maid Marian in Tennyson's Foresters, and that of Roxanne in the Daly Theater's Cyrano de Bergerac.
