Actor, director, impresario, author, David Garrick is the most legendary man of the theatre of modern times. He reformed English theatre practice, established a 'natural' style of acting, and made the profession socially acceptable. As his great friend Dr Johnson remarked, no actor before Garrick had made so much money or achieved such an eminent position in society. Not for nothing is the most exclusive club in London named after him; Garrick was the first international 'megastar'. Drawing on the large amount of source material that is available, from the account of Johnson's friendship with Garrick in Boswell's Life, through descriptions of his acting by English, French and German critics, to his own diaries and letters, Jean-Norman Benedetti has written a lively and fascinating account of Garrick's style and pivotal reforms, establishing his place in the development of acting and directing.
