The story of George Grossmith is that of the actor-manager, equally successful in both these branches of the theatre. He set the fashion as the leading musical-comedy actor of his day. Before World War I he had made a name for himself in such shows as The Orchid and Our Miss Gibbs; and then in management with Edward Laurillard presented -amongst others- Tonight's the Night and A Night Out. Later on came the great successes at the Winter Garden-Solly and The Cabaret Girl both being tremendous hits. 'G.G.,' as he was known to all his friends, was a great man. The stage and the general public acknowledged him as a great impresario and his name will always live as somebody who loved and breathed ' theatre ' wherever he went. His daughter, Rosa Grossmith , will recall memories of her father during the programme.
