Maurice Evans as King Richard in "Richard II"

Maurice Evans made theatre history in New York with his acting of Richard II - a monarch who, after many years of comparative neglect on our stage, has recently aroused more public interest than ever before. In making up for this part, Mr. Evans had as his first task to deny his normal personality, which is strong and forceful. Observe the skill with which the fair hair, the small beard, the paling of the complexion and the heightening of the forehead, all contribute to the desired effect of delicacy.
