t 

famous  playwrights  and  actors  that  might  be  seen  on  the  London  stages  in  the  1 9th

century.  Many  of  the  playwrights  mentioned  are  very  famous  until  today,  like  Shakespeare

and  Moliere,  some  are  today  less  well-known.  Especially  interesting  are  the  short 

biographies  of  the  stars  of  the  stage,  which  may  in  some  cases  remind  you  of  contemporary
