Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. David Belasco (July 25, 1853 - May 14, 1931) was an American theatrical producer, impresario, director and playwright. Born in San Francisco, California, where his Sephardic Jewish parents had moved from London, England, during the Gold Rush, he began working in a San Francisco theatre doing a variety of routine jobs, such as call boy and script copier. He eventually was given the opportunity to act and serve as a stage manager, learning the business inside out. A gifted playwright, Belasco went to New York City in 1882 where he worked as stage manager for the Madison Square Theater while writing plays. By 1895, he was so successful that he set himself up as an independent producer.show more
