Powers, James T.

(1862-1943)
   Born James McGovern in New York, he began his theatrical work in circus and vaudeville before rising to prominence in the musical Evangeline (1882) and a series of farcical comedies, including Dreams (1882), A Bunch of Keys (1883), and A Tin Soldier (1886). A founding member of the Casino Theatre company, Powers moved into Augustin Daly's celebrated company in 1893 to replace James Lewis. He acted in various plays and musicals, including The New Boy (1894), San Toy (1900), The Messenger Boy (1901), The Jewel of Asia (1903), A Princess of Kensington (1903), The Medal and the Maid (1904), The Blue Moon (1906), Havana (1909), Two Little Brides (1912), The Geisha (1913), and Somebody's Luggage (1916). Much of his later career was spent in European musicals on Broadway and tour, but he also appeared in a string of all-star revivals, including Out There (1918), The Rivals (1922, 1923, 1930), Henry IV, Part I (1926), Julius Caesar (1927), The Beaux' Stratagem (1928), Becky Sharp (1929), and Seven Keys to Baldpate (1935).
