Birth: 1841
Death: Nov. 10, 1917

Ella Wesner was the foremost male impersonator of the vaudeville era. Ella Wesner started in showbiz as a ballet girl. She was Annie Hindle's dresser for a while which enabled her to learn the tricks of male impersonation.

She was very popular in the 1880s. Like Hindle she recycled British Music Hall material for American audiences. Her best remembered act was as a tipsy dude getting a shave.
