AllMusic Review by

This disc, the first of five in the anthology, features early sound recordings collected from wax cylinders, radio broadcasts, and early phonographic recordings collected by George Creegan. Included on this album: the incomparable Sarah Bernhardt in Racine's Phedre, Constant Coquelin in Cyrano De Bergerac, and John Barrymore performing Halmet's death soliloquy. Traditions of Acting is an invaluable resource for researchers interested in theatre and performance history.
