[?] Krug


According to B. Gorin, it was that when Avraham Goldfaden came to Romania (in 1879) to play in Odessa, there there was a certain cook with the name of Krug. He was known in Peterburg as a city guide, and he was mixed [up] with "Natshalstvo." He prompted himself to find out that Yiddish theatre would be allowed to be performed not only in Odessa, but in the entirety of Russia, and therefore he had required that Goldfaden should make him a partner in the theatre. Goldfaden thereof entered, and they both traveled out of Petersburg.

When Goldfaden later returned and took the "Marinskiy" Theatre, he didn't have any desire to make a partnership with Krug, did not look at his complaint, he had therefore put together a troupe for the province under the direction of his brother Naftali, together with Krug, and he had sent a play over to South Africa."
