George Colman - LoveToKnow 1911 (1025 words)
GEORGE COLMAN (1732-1794), English dramatist and essayist, usually called "the Elder," and sometimes "George the First," to distinguish him from his son, was born in 1732 at Florence, where his father was stationed as resident at the court of the grand duke of Tuscany.
Colman's father died within a year of his son's birth, and the boy's education was undertaken by William Pulteney, afterwards Lord Bath, whose wife was Mrs Colman's sister.
Colman was acting manager of Covent Garden for seven years, and during that period he produced several "adapted" plays of Shakespeare.
