Michael Levenston was a well-known theatre manager in late Victorian England. He worked closely with actress Marie Tempest, was a right hand man of George Edwardes of the Gaiety Theatre, and in 1892 he opened the Trafalgar Square Theatre, renamed the Duke of York’s Theatre, still in use today. Members of his family were mentioned in James Joyce's ‘Ulysses’. “There he goes into Frederick Street. Perhaps to Levenston's dancing academy piano.” His Irish cousin, Philip Michael Levenston, led the Dublin Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra. Actress Kitty Gordon, his third wife, was named by famed sculptor Rodin “the most beautiful woman in the world”.
