Anglin, Margaret


Anglin, Margaret
(1876-1958)
   The Canadian-born actress and manager attended convent schools in Toronto and Montreal, then went to New York to train at the Empire Dramatic School associated with Charles Frohman's theatre. In a school production, she attracted Frohman's attention and he engaged her to play Madeleine West in a revival of Shenandoah in 1894. She toured with that company and in subsequent seasons with the companies of James O'Neill and E. H. Sothern. She attained stardom as Roxane in Cyrano de Bergerac opposite Richard Mansfield at New York's Garden Theatre in 1898. Numerous fine roles followed, but none as important as that of Ruth Jordan opposite actor Henry Miller in The Great Divide (1906), for which she had bought the rights when the play was still titled The Sabine Woman. The New York Sun review by John Corbin noted her ability to display "opposing impulses blindly yet potently struggling within her for mastery" in a performance of "depth and subtlety." In 1910, Anglin formed her own company and included a Greek classic in her repertoire each season thereafter until 1928. She continued performing and touring until 1943. Her five-decade career encompassed over 80 roles.
