Philip Mark

 

M. was born in 1898 in Warsaw, Poland. His father was a butcher.

In his childhood years he sung with cantors. Until age sixteen he learned in the Lomza yeshiva. Out of an inclination for the stage he entered into an amateur circle as a buff comic. Then he became a professional actor in the provincial troupes of Bernstein, later of Becker, with whom he toured for several years.

He came to America. M. for several years toured the province with the "European Cooperative Troupe" and then, together with them, performed in New York's Lipzin Theatre and since 1931 in the McKinley Square Theatre.

M. is a member of the Independent Actors League.
