Herbert Beerbohm Tree

Sir Herbert Beerbohm Tree (1853 - 1917) was an English actor-manager. Born in London, he was the half-brother of Max Beerbohm. Educated in Germany, he went on the stage on his return to England and by 1887 he was running the Haymarket Theatre[?] in the West End of London. Ten years later, he was responsible for the construction of His Majesty's Theatre[?], also in the West End. He played many of the leading roles in his own elaborate productions, which included the premiere of George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion, in 1914.
