Eva Le Gallienne (January 11, 1899 – June 3, 1991) was an English-born American stage actress, producer, director, translator, and author. A broadway star by age 21, Le Gallienne consciously ended her work on Broadway to devote herself to founding the Civic Repertory Theater, in which she was both director, producer, and lead actress. Noted for her boldness and idealism, she became a pioneering figure in the American Repertory Movement, which enabled today's Off-Broadway. A versatile and eloquent actress herself (playing everything from Peter Pan to Hamlet), Le Gallienne also became a respected stage coach, director, producer and manager. Ms. Le Gallienne consciously devoted herself to the Art of the Theatre as opposed to the Show Business of Broadway and dedicated herself to upgrading the quality of the stage. She ran the Civic Repertory Theatre Company for 10 years (1926-1936), producing 37 plays during that time. She managed Broadway's 1100-seat Civic Repertory Theatre at 107 14th Street from 1926-32, which was home to her company whose actors included herself, Burgess Meredith, John Garfield J. Edward Bromberg, Paul Leyssac, Florida Friebus, and Leona Roberts.

I`m reading a new book by Lily Koppel about the life of a young woman in NYC (The Red Leather Diary). In the book the the young woman spends about a year in pursuit of Ms. LeG. Their meeting in a dressing room is ruined by the then love of Ms.LeG, Josephine Hutchinson. Excellent book.

I have a drawing in my collection of Eva and Richard Le Gallienne, done by Jean Negulesco. That`s why I am researching on both of them.
