Jacob P. Alder brought her over at the end of the 1890s from Europe.

According to his information G. completed the conservatory in Vienna.

G.'s first production came at the Windsor Theatre in the play "Fra diavolo", -- according to Bessie Thomashefsky -- "A great operetta, spoken in Yiddish, and she alone, the prima donna, [heyst es], has spoken German. A sympathetic German-Yiddish daughter with a high Jewish nose and deep black eyes. She spoke softly and elegantly as would a truthful aristocrat."

G.'s first appearance was [farkilt], and she suffered a terrible [durkhfal], such that, she soon had to retire from the Yiddish stage.
