Today's featured list

This star symbolizes the featured content on Wikipedia.

On Mondays and Fridays, the Main Page includes a section where an introduction to one of Wikipedia's featured lists is displayed. The current month's queue can be found here. The lists appearing on the main page are scheduled by the featured list director Giants2008.

To appear on the main page, a list must already be featured. For more information on the featured list promotion process, please see Wikipedia:Featured list candidates, and the featured list criteria. In addition to being featured, a main page blurb must be drafted, which introduces the subject of the list. Main page blurbs are roughly 1,000 characters in total length, with no endlines, reference tags, alternate names, or extraneous bolding, although the link to the specified featured list should be bolded. You can submit a list at Wikipedia:Today's featured list/submissions.

At the moment, lists are scheduled by the FL director or the FL delegates, although we will eventually be devising a community-based system for selecting each day's list. We encourage editors to submit and review as many blurbs as possible. If you notice a problem with an upcoming main-page featured list, please leave a message talkpage here.

Further ideas on how you can participate can be found at Wikipedia:Today's featured list/get involved.

Theatre productions of Dan Leno
Theatre productions of Dan Leno

The English comic actor Dan Leno (1860–1904) appeared in 27 theatrical productions during his 40-year career. These, together with his comic music hall acts, earned him wide popularity during the Victorian and Edwardian eras. He excelled in pantomime, particularly at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane where he appeared in the Dame role every Christmas from 1888 to his death in 1904. He began performing as a child and became a champion clog dancer. From his teen years, he was a star in music hall throughout Britain. His debut in pantomime came in 1865 in the Liverpool festive production Fortunatus; or, The Magic Wishing Cap, as a juvenile clown. His theatrical performances in pantomime and burlesque matured over the next 20 years, and he received much praise for his first performance at Drury Lane in Babes in the Wood. He starred in a further 15 pantomimes there, for which he received much acclaim and became the most popular comic performer in the theatre's history. His last pantomime at Drury Lane was Humpty Dumpty, which was staged 10 months before his death. (Full list...)
