New review

“The Lady Actress is a well-researched analysis of the writings, orations, and dramatic performances of Victorian Era actress Anna Cora Mowatt (1819-1870). The author skillfully places this under-appreciated trail blazer’s life and works within the sexist and repressive period in which Mowatt lived. The result is a concise presentation of Victorian Era judgement and nuance and the amazing ability Mowatt had for turning these apparent limitations into strengths in order to pursue her craft.”
