Famous Stage Actresses

Women have made incredible strides in theater since the time of Shakespeare, when male stage actors portrayed even female characters. From the Restoration period in the 1660s, when women were first allowed to perform in major productions to the late 19th century Broadway to modern theater, stage actresses continue to push boundaries in the performing arts.
