Lives in the Yiddish
SHORT BIOGRAPHIES OF THOSE INVOLVED IN
THE Yiddish THEATRE
aS DESCRIBED IN zALMEN zYLBERCWEIG'S "lEKSIKON FUN YIDISHN TEATER"
G. was a house and land businessman in New York.
A conscious writer, an owner
of a coffee house in the Yiddish quarter of New York, he
led together (in 1886) the advocate Levy, the glass
merchant Roth(?), and G. may have produced a theatre of
substance with his troupe, which had brought down other
directors. The three partners may have paid a twenty-thousand dollars money transfer to own the National
Theatre, and he changed the name of the theatre of the
Rumanian Opera House where Mogulesko's troupe performed.
