Representative Plays by American Dramatists: 1856-1911: Paul Kauvar; or, Anarchy eBook

Steele MacKaye
This eBook from the Gutenberg Project consists of approximately 89 pages of information about Representative Plays by American Dramatists.

On December 24, 1887, “Paul Kauvar” opened at the New York Standard Theatre, with Joseph Haworth and Annie Robe, and thereafter started on a stage career whose history is long and varied.  It reached London, May 12, 1890, under the management of Augustus Harris, at the Drury Lane, with William Terriss and Jessie Millward heading the cast.

Nym Crinkle liked “Paul Kauvar” because of its vigourous masculinity.  To him there was in it the “scintillant iron,” “the strong arm, ruddy at times with the tongues of promethean fire.”  It is a big canvas, avowedly romantic.  “It is,” he wrote, after the play had been running in New York some months, “a work of great propulsive power, of genuine creative ingenuity, of massive dramatic effectiveness.”  On that account it is well worth the preserving and the reading.
