Arthur Hopkins (1878- March 22, 1950) was a Broadway theater director and producer in the early twentieth century. He directed plays by playwrights in American Expressionist theater, including Elmer Rice, Sophie Treadwell, and Eugene O'Neill. Hopkins was born in Cleveland, the son of a Welsh couple. After leaving high school, he began life as a reporter and then worked for a while as a theater press agent. This led to his writing a play, "The Fatted Calf" (1912) and to producing a show, "Poor Little Rich Girl", in 1913; it was a hit and launched his Broadway career. During the following 34 years he produced or directed 80 plays. He also wrote "Burlesque" (1927), which he staged again twenty years later and it ran from Christmas 1946 to January 1948. His last production "The Magnificent Yankee", based on the life of the Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr, in 1946 was another hit. According to the New York Times (Dec 2 1915) he married the Australian actress Eva MacDonald in August 1915. At the time she declared that she had retired from the stage, but in 1919 she appeared as Natasha in "Night Lodging", produced by Hopkins. She died in 1938.
