Z. G. Murovane


Y. Lyubomirski characterizes her as such [1931]:

"Murovane had for the fifth year, which she worked in the Kharkov theatre, done from time to time responsible work in which she displayed an authentic actress-like temperament and certain technical achievements. She had however no luck for her personage, which her oysgekumen creations, besides the mother in "Di letste", almost entirely fallen out of the repertoire in which she had responsible work: in "Amerikaner geter", the director of the shakhtyorn, the worker Mary Barg; in the "Goldener medina" -- Margaret, in "Beserer mentsh" -- the billion wives (?), Madam Kompas, in "Babef" -- an old woman.

The last time Murovane wasn't taken into responsible roles and therefore she had grown as an actress, very blocked, and then when she gained attention by playing the mother in "Di letste",  which she deeply observed her tsenishe defarnkeyt and mastery. That entire naturalness, because she possessed significant actorial resources -- an imaginable figure, a pure diction, a steady, bright voice -- All these can a good director can successfully exploit for the theatre".
