Tyler, George C.

(1867-1946)
   George Clouse Tyler was born in a small town near Chillicothe, Ohio, and worked as a reporter before becoming James O'Neill's manager. In 1897, he joined producing forces with Liebler & Co., which, under the guidance of Theodore A. Liebler and Tyler, emerged as an important turn-of-the-cen-tury producing organization, presenting such notable plays as The Christian (1898), Sag Harbor (1900), The Squaw Man (1905), The Man from Home (1908), Alias Jimmy Valentine (1910), and The Garden of Allah (1911). Liebler & Co. also produced tours of such international stars as Mrs. Patrick Campbell, Eleonora Duse, and Gabrielle Réjane. After several failures, just prior to World War I, Leibler & Co. folded and Tyler briefly worked for Marc Klaw and A. L. Erlanger before striking out on his own as a producer with Clarence (1919), Dulcy (1921), To the Ladies (1922), Merton of the Movies (1922), Young Woodley (1925), and The Plough and the Stars (1927). From the mid-1920s, Tyler produced a series of revivals including Diplomacy and Jim, the Penman, as well as classics such as She Stoops to Conquer, The Beaux' Stratagem, and Macbeth, the last featuring the only designs by theatrical visionary Edward Gordon Craig to be seen on American stages. Tyler retired from the stage to write his autobiography, Whatever Goes Up (1934).
