Moon Over Buffalo – Ethel Lane

Ethel Lane is a veteran stage actress with over 50 years of experience. Starting out in the chorus, she got her big break in 1896 when she played Desdemona to the great Harley Granville Barker’s Moor. Her performance caught the eye of Broadway producer Herbert Lane, whom she married in 1898.  Following the birth of daughter Charlotte, Ethel went on to play supporting roles in the American premieres of Shaw’s Heartbreak House and Chekhov’s The Cherry Orchard.  She has toured America playing classic roles such as Hedda Gabler, Lady Macbeth, and Miss Julia, along with cutting-edge new works from Eugene O’Neill and Lillian Hellman.
