M. was born on 14 January 1868 in Warsaw, Poland. Her father was an epaulet maker. A year later, the family immigrated to London, where M. learned in a public school.

The actor Leibush Gold, who acted then in Goldfaden's repertory in Sheppard, moved M. into acting in these plays. Later she went over to a club on Mansell Street, and when Adler came to London and Grodno, the troupe came over to play at the Princes' Club to the khmit. Here M. married actor Solomon Manne, and together they acted in a club without a license, which led to the both of their arrests, and they had to stop acting.

In 1892 the Mannes went to New York, and for a short time afterwards, M. came to her husband, however the first time she let people she had not acted(?). First later she gelunkt him and went with Adler to act in Gordin's plays, and she remained since then to act in theatre roles with Adler, Thomashefsky, Kessler and Lipzin.

From 1920-22 and 1929, M. acted in Philadelphia's Arch Street Theatre.

Of M.'s six children -- one son is associated with English, and one daughter with Yiddish theatre.
