Firmin Gémier (1869-1933) was a French actor and director. A pupil of Antoine and the creator of the role of Père Ubu, he became interested in popular theater, directing Romain Rolland's Le 14 juillet in 1902, creating the short-lived Théâtre Ambulant (1911-12), which toured France by rail, and becoming the director of the first Théâtre National Populaire in 1920.
