Richardson, Leander


Richardson, Leander
(1856?-1918)
   The eminent newspaperman had many theatrical connections. He worked as press representative for William A. Brady, edited his own weekly Dramatic News, served as drama critic for the New York Morning Telegraph, wrote for Variety, contributed theatre news to various dailies, and wrote plays. According to Green and Laurie, Richardson "was highly respected for both his integrity and his honesty. He engaged in several fist fights with actors who resented his notices, and was entrusted with backstage confidences by Broadway producers who knew he would not betray them" (117). His plays included The Nominee (1891), a vehicle for Nat C. Goodwin.
