At the Shakespeare Memorial theatre, and for the benefit of that institution, at Stratford-upon-Avon, Mary Anderson enacted Rosalind, for the first time in her life, on August 29, 1885, and afterwards she repeated the performance in various cities of Great Britain and the United States. On the American stage As You Like It was acted on July 14, 1786, at the John street theatre, New York, with Mrs. Kenna as Rosalind. Ireland records this, together with other presentations of the comedy in New York prior to 1860.
