David J Kathman               e-mail:

This index is a complete annotated list of all playwrights, actors, patrons, musicians, and miscellaneous other people active in English drama before 1660. Each entry contains basic information about the person's dates and dramatic activities, along with a list of books and articles containing biographical information. This index is a precursor to a forthcoming Biographical Dictionary of English Drama Before 1660, which will contain fuller information and narrative biographies for each person. I welcome all comments and suggestions, including notice of any errors or omissions contained herein.
