Manhattan theatre company

   Harrison Grey Fiske, editor of the New York Dramatic Mirror, leased the Manhattan Theatre in 1901 to establish a repertory company (producing up to nine plays a year) starring his wife, Minnie Maddern Fiske. Rivaling the powerful Theatrical Syndicate, the Fiskes toured the country between 1906 and 1914 with a troupe that impressed critics and audiences with its strong ensemble acting and highly realistic details in scenery and costumes.
