Her mother was the leading woman in a stock company and while going to school Miss Adams often appeared on the stage in child’s parts. At sixteen she joined E. H. Sothern’s Company in New York in the “Midnight Bell.” She has been connected with Charles Frohman’s stock company and has supported John Drew. Her most pronounced success has been in J. M. Barrie’s plays, and especially in “The Little Minister.” During the winter of 1906-07 she made a great success in New York in the play “Peter Pan.”
