Through her brother, who was very close with Yiddish actors, had performed  as "Papus" during Schildkraut's performances in Lodz, and L. came into contact with the theatre. As a child she danced in Lodz's Grand Theatre with Zandberg in the play "Di grinhorns (The Greenhorns)".

In 1914 she immigrated to America and entered into the chorus at the Hub Theatre in Boston, and after that as she meet the actor Max Badin, went over to a second theatre where she debuted as "Binyamin" in "Joseph with his Brothers". After her marriage to Badin, who had written special lyrics for her, they performed together for a short time within the province. Later L. performed in Brooklyn's Liberty Theatre as a soubrette and remained with this genre.

From 1927-30 L. acted in the Rolland Theatre and since then has acted only for a short period in various theatres in New York and across the province.

In 1916 L. acted in English vaudeville.
