1885] there arrived in Galicia a concession of the Yiddish
theatre. He put together a troupe (Chaim-Shmuel Lukatsher, Meyerovitsh and his wife, Liza Eynhorn,
Sam Adler, et al), and then they performed across the
state and cities of Galicia. Afterwards he partnered with
Axelrad and with that the troupe was taken on the road
