David Belasco

Author Code: ADBX

Born: Jul. 25, 1853 - San Francisco, California, USA

Died: May 14, 1931 - New York City, New York, USA

Belasco entered the theatre as a child actor and gradually worked in a variety of theatre jobs including stage manager and playwright. In 1882, he moved to New York City where he worked as the stage manager for the Madison Square Theatre. He then became stage manager and house playwright for the Lyceum Theatre where he collaborated with Henry C. De Mille on several hit plays. In 1895, Belasco produced The Heart of Maryland, a Civil War drama that became a huge international success and established him as a gifted playwright both at home and abroad. In 1902, he leased the Theatre Republic, which he used as a showcase for his work. In 1907, he opened the Stuyvesant theatre on 44th Street, billed as the most technically advanced theatre in New York. The Stuyvesant was later renamed the Belasco. He is credited with advancing the careers of many aspiring actors including Mary Pickford and Leslie Carter. His play, Madame Butterfly (1900), was later adapted to the opera by Puccini. Belasco's other main works include The Girl I Left Behind Me (1893), Zaza (1899), The Girl of the Golden West (1911), The Return of Peter Grimm (1912), and Theatre Through the Stage Door (1919).
