Henry Miller was 14 when his parents brought him to Toronto and in 1876 he made his stage debut at the Grand Opera House, with Mrs Morrison's resident Toronto stock company in Amy Robsart, the dramatization of Walter Scott's Kenilworth. He achieved recognition with Daniel Frohman's Lyceum Theatre in New York, and toured opposite such Canadian stars as Clara MORRIS and Margaret ANGLIN. Miller evolved into a meticulous director and went into management at New York's Princess Theatre in 1905, building his own Henry Miller Theatre in 1916.
