Lee Pace: March 25, 1979 - (add theatre performance here, coz i don’t know about it, but Fernando Woods is a really big deal here)
Sir Henry Irving - February 6, 1838, Hamlet & much more. 

body slams the wall. shakespearesvigilante of course i knew… this was actually in my q.. Hamlet was very special for Shakespeare, part if not all of it was written for his son during the lost years.. coz that’s when his only son, Hamnet died. Shakespeare was in London (or perhaps on tour) when he received the news that his son was ill, much of his story is lost here, but Hamnet died before Shakespeare got back, so he never really met his son during the final hours of his life. Hamnet was only 11 years old..
