Abstract

At the end of the 19th century, Italian stages were dominated by a very popular form of French comedy, which audiences and managers called pochade. One of the most interesting examples of this genre is La dame de chez Maxim, staged for the first time in Italy in the Autumn 1899 with a large success of audience, while critics are almost unanimous in saying it was not a good text. The essay explores the different approaches to the play by Italian companies, starting from the analysis of the Feydeau script, translated into Italian by Giovanni Pozza, in order to explain the charming success of the main character Crevette, that was role-played by several actress, but became unforgettable in Dina Galli’s performance, since her first appearance in the Virgilio Talli’s Company in 1900.
