William Hunter Kendal was a leading actor-manager of the 19th century. With his wife, Madge Kendal, he appeared in a long series of Shakespeare revivals at the Haymarket and they also starred in the Fairy Comedies of W.S. Gilbert. Charles Frohman (1856-1915) was an American producer and theatrical imresario, who promoted many stars of the American theatre and, for a time, had a virtual monopoly over the U.S. theatre industry. He had a lease of the Duke of York's Theatre in London and promoted the playwright J.M. Barry, being the first to produce his play, Peter Pan, in 1904.
