New review for The Lady Actress

“A very in-depth book, “The Lady Actress” took me back to a moment in time when actresses were frowned upon and called derogatory names. I could almost feel myself morphing into Anna Cora Mowatt, the person for whom the book is written. She was indeed very much a lady, even though society held a stigma regarding the proper place for women (which was not in the theaters that Mowatt frequented). Society has evolved so much since then, but it is interesting to see exactly how prejudiced the masculine mind was back then.”, by Stephanie, July 12, 2010
