The Tempest Plays in Louisville (1902)
From the Louisville Courier-Journal, November 9, 1902
Among the members of the Warde and James Company, which will be seen at Macauley’s the first part of this week in a revival of “The Tempest,” is Thomas Coffin Cooke, of Louisville. Gaining his first dramatic experience in amateur roles, Mr. Cooke, since his advent on the professional stage, has made rapid advancement and has shown himself an actor of sterling qualities. The fact that he has been intrusted [sic] with the stage management of the spectacular production which is required by the nature of the revival speaks for itself. Mr. Cook’s success has been well won and he is well assured of a cordial greeting from a Louisville audience.
