GREAT THEATRICAL STARS OF THE PAST
In the meantime, while awaiting the return of your favorite theatrical performances, you may enjoy knowing about some of the great stars of the past such as Maurice Chevalier, Jeanette Mac Donald, Marilyn Monroe, Michael Jackson and many more.
Maurice Chevalier became a star in 1917 at the le Casino de Paris and played before British Soldiers and Americans ! He discovered jazz and ragtime and started thinking about touring the United States.
In a POW prison camp, he studied English and had an advantage over other French artists. He went to London where he found success at the Palace Theatre, even though he still sang in French. In 1972, he was well known as a French actor, cabaret singer and entertainer.
He is best known for his signature songs including “Livin’ In The Sunlight,” “Valentine,” “Louise,” “Mimi,” and “Thank Heaven for Little Girls,” “You Brought A New Kind of Love to Me,” “and others. He was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actor in his roles which were his first big American hits.
Michael Jackson--- entertained audiences nearly his entire life. A musical prodigy, Michael’s singing and dancing talents were amazingly mature, and he soon became the dominant voice and focus of the Jackson 5.
Solo success was inevitable, and by the 1980’s, he had become infinitely more popular. Record sales of the album, “Thriller,” became the biggest-selling album of all time. His passion and artistry as a singer, dancer, writer and businessman were unparalleled, and it is these talents that will ultimately prevail over the extremely negative aspects of his troubled adult life.
Ethel Barrymore was a stage and screen actress whose career spanned six decades and was regarded as “The First Lady of the American Theatre.” She was the sister of actors John and Lionel Barrymore.
Ethel’s first appearance on Broadway was in 1895, in a play called “The Impudent Young Couple.” She appeared with her uncle John Drew, Jr. Appearing with him again, in “Rosemary.”
After her return to the US from London, she was cast in the play “Catherine” and then as Stella de Grex in “His Excellency the Governor.”
After that she was cast in “Captain Jinks of the Horse Marines,” which opened at the Garrick Theatre in London’s West End. She was a strong supporter of the Actors Equity Association.
Helen Hayes is known as “The First Lady of the “American Theatre.” Helen Hayes had a legendary career on stage, film and television that spanned over 80 years. Hayes was born in Washington, D.C., to Catherine Estelle "Essie" Hayes, an actress who worked in touring companies, and Francis van Arnum Brown, a clerk and salesman.
By the time she turned twenty she was well on her way to a landmark career on the American stage, becoming perhaps the greatest female star of the theatre during the 1930s and 1940s.
The greatest success of her career was “Victoria Regina,” which ran for three years. In 1958, she became the second performer to win the Triple Crown of acting Oscars for Best Actress in ‘The Sin of Madelon Claudet.” She won Tony Awards for “Joan of Lorraine,” ‘Time Remembered,” and “Harvey.”
She has two stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, with two Broadway theatres named after her, in addition to an “Egot,” awarded only to stars who received four major entertainment Awards .
