J. B. Buckstone (1802-1879)
J. B. (John Baldwin) Buckstone was a popular English actor, manager and playwright, who wrote approximately two hundred plays in his life. At nineteen the actor became a great success as a "low comedian." "Luke the Laborer," his first play, was produced at the Adelphi in 1826. Buckstone then began his practice of acting in his own plays. The Adelphi welcomed him for many years and from 1853 to 1876 Buckstone managed the Adelphi, to which he drew many great 19th-century actors. Although broad, his acting was also droll and fun.
