Friederike Caroline Neuber, born on 8 March 1697 in Reichenbach im Vogtland, was an actress, a theater director and an author. From 1727 until 1756, with interruptions, she led her own theater group which performed in various German cities. As a Neuber, she was one of the central figures of the early development of the German theater. Neuber passed away on 29 November 1760 in Laubegast, near Dresden.
