NAGY, ENDRE (1877–1938), Hungarian author and stage manager. Some of Nagy's early stories had Jewish themes, but he later converted to Christianity. He was founder and manager of Hungary's first political cabaret, to which he contributed topical commentaries. Two of his more important works were A kaberé regénye ("The Story of the Cabaret," 1935) and Várad-Pest-Párizs (1958).
