Biography
Performer, director, producer, and writer, E.H. Sothern (1859-1933) was born in New Orleans into a theatrical family. Educated in England, he worked for some ten years (until 1898) as an actor in Daniel Frohman's company at New York's Lyceum Theatre in comedic and romantic roles. After winning acclaim in his own production of Hamlet (1900), Sothern and his second wife, Julia Marlowe, starred in their productions of Shakespeare and a few modern plays for almost 20 years. He died in New York City of pneumonia.
