A short number of quotations like, for example, Plato, R. 397a, 599d, or Aristotle Rhetoric (1403a) allow us to argue there were negative opinions against some tragic actors since the classic era of Athens. Therefore, our paper tries, on the one hand, to explore this kind of attitudes regarding tragic theatricality, taking on account the sources of Plutarch’s works, and, on the other, we will try to reconstruct the lives of these famous actors in order to understand which kind of actions aroused these hard judgments.
