In 1895 he came to America and here sang in quartets and later acted in vaudeville, afterwards becoming an actor in legitimate theatre.

Berta Kalich said in her memoirs:

"This Simovitsh was a wardrobe person and stood very well in theatre politics.

His goal in life was to be a partner in a theatre, and he worked hard to reach his goal.

S. joined the Roumanian Opera House and became partners with Sigmund Feinman, where Feinman, Kessler and Kalich acted.

He later became one of the lease holders of the Thalia Theatre, along with Kalich, Kessler, Feinman, Mogulesko and Sprachner."

In 19..., S. passed away in New York.

His son, Max, is a dentist.
