Rip Van Winkle, the circa 1870s stage play production (based on the work of Washington Irving) starring Joe Jefferson (in the title role as Rip Van Winkle). Joseph Jefferson III (also known as Joe Jefferson) was an American actor from the 1830s to the 1900s. He was the third actor of this name in a family of actors and managers, and one of the most famous of all 19th century American comedians. Beginning as a young child, he continued as a performer for most of his life. Jefferson was particularly well known for his adaptation and portrayal of Rip Van Winkle on the stage, even reprising the role in several silent film adaptations. After 1865, he created no other major role and toured with this play for decades. He passed away in 1905 at the age of 76.
