Fannie Levenshteyn
(Perlman)

 

L. was born in Odessa, Ukraine.

Her father was a businessman.

As a child she came to America. She learned in a school. Due to her father's connection with the Yiddish theatre, she began to act in children's roles in Chicago with Adler, Feinman and later with Simon's troupes.

In the time of Yiddish vaudeville houses, she acted there as a partner with David Baratz and then returned to the legitimate Yiddish theatre as a dramatic actress.

After her marriage to actor Isidor Levenshteyn, she followed the same path to the stage as her husband.
