Garrick emerges from this book as one of the most splendid figures of the English 18th century and one of the happiest. He combined an electrifying stage presence with a reputation as a talented theatrical impressario; an ability to lead, inspire and cajole others made the Theatre Royal the theatrical light of its age. Garrick's popularity, together with his financial interest in Drury Lane, gave him security and social standing unequalled by any of his predecessors or contemporaries; he became the intimate of dukes and duchesses, portrait painters and prime ministers, bishops and bluestockings.

From the Publisher:

Witty, clever, and dynamic, David Garrick was the preeminent actor of his time. A celebrity by the age of 25, he transfixed his audiences with his magnetic performances in Richard III and King Lear. Garrick dominated the stage for forty years and, in the process, gave it new status. Ian McIntyre¹s absorbing biography brings this legend of the 18th-century theater to life, recreating the vibrant intellectual and social milieu of which Garrick was so vital a part.

Review:

³A great plum pudding of a book, stuffed with good stories and letters.² -- THE SUNDAY TIMES

³A splendid entertainment -- a treasure trove.² -- THE TIMES
