Description

Excerpt from The German Drama on the St. Louis Stage The first German theatre in St. Louis dates from the year 1842. In the summer of 1842 Rudolf Riese, an actor of ability, originally from Berlin, in the course of a variegated existence, became stranded in St. Louis. A number of young Germans, on becoming acquainted with the man and his plight, sympathized with him in his embarrassment. Money these for the most part poor clerks and business apprentices did not have to offer the stranded actor. But out of a desire to aid him they encouraged him to arrange a series of theatrical performances for his benefit. To this end they offered their assistance as dilettantes. The result was the first performance of a German drama in St. Louis.3 For a record of this first performance we are indebted to the facile pen of Heinrich Bornstein.
