Maude Adams


Daughter of a Mormon actress and raised in Utah, Maude Adams would become the most unique of the leading ladies of the turn of the 20th century. Intelligent, spiritual, daring in her exploration of characters who did not operate by the usual sexual pathologies presented in English-language drama of the 1880-1920 era, she became the favorite instrument for James Barrie's dramas about liminal adulthood. David S.
