The Senator

   Sydney Rosenfeld was prevailed upon to finish this four-act comedy when author David D. Lloyd died before completing it. Starring W. H. Crane and Georgiana Drew Barrymore, The Senator opened on 13 January 1890 at the Star Theatre, where it ran for 119 performances and spawned a 1915 silent motion picture version. Crane played Senator Hannibal Rivers, who wins the affections of a young woman bethrothed to a philandering Austrian count through the efforts of a flirtatious widow, played by Barrymore, and a government claim dating to the War of 1812.
