Here We Are Again!
Grimaldi's popularity and fame make him the darling of fashionable society.
"Lord Byron was a particular admirer, and we would chat together at Covent Garden during shows.
When I was called upon the stage, he would wait in the wings and as soon as I came off, recommence the conversation where it had been interrupted.".
