Wainwright, Marie


Wainwright, Marie
(1853-1923)
   The Philadelphia-born actress, née Marie Page, reportedly came from a good family. Accepted for training with the Boston Museum stock company, she quickly moved into Shakespearean roles opposite Tommaso Salvini and Lawrence Barrett. Later she toured with her second husband Louis James. Best known as Viola in Twelfth Night, she played that role over a thousand times. Her melodious voice and delicate gestures enhanced her wistful, poetic characterization of Viola in contrast to other actresses' more coquettish approaches.
