THEATRE ACTRESS: DORA LESLIE

Dora Leslie was a theatre actress whose career included Broadway appearances. In 1887 she was appearing in “Lord Chumly” in Boston and wanted to leave the production because she felt her role was too small and offered little opportunity. A fifteen year old replacement was sent by Daniel Frohman; her name was Maude Adams and she went on to great fame. Leslie is mentioned in the New York Times for appearing in “The Marquis” (1889) and in a play inspired by a Mark Twain story (1890). The photographer who produced this cabinet card portrait of Leslie, is unknown.
