Stange, Stanislaus

(1862-1917)
   Born Hugh Stanislaus Stange in Liverpool, Lancashire, England, the actor, elocutionist, playwright, and librettist was in the United States by the late 1880s when he was directing amateur productions in Kansas City. He then toured as a leading man with George C. Miln, followed by two seasons with Stuart Robson and William H. Crane. He settled in New York, where his one-act sketch Yesterday (1893) and his "ill-written, offensive, unimaginative piece" Mrs. Dascot (New York Times, 6 March 1894) appeared briefly. Stange became best known for his dramatization of Quo Vadis (1900) and his libretto for The Chocolate Soldier (1915).
