Leon and Celia
Zuckerberg

 

Many of the Yiddish actors who once graced our stages in the heyday of Yiddish theatre often traveled to the countries outside of Europe and the United States to perform, e.g.  those in Central and South America and Cuba.

Those who once had immigrated to these countries, who were well familiar with the Yiddish language, eagerly awaited each performance.

A number of husband and wife teams followed the4 same path to the stage. They often toured together as part of acting troupes .  One such couple who made such tours an important part of their theatrical careers were the talented husband and wife acting team of Leon and Celia  Zuckerberg.

In this room you have the opportunity to learn a bit about them, about their roles and the performances in which they acted,  as well as the different theatres around the Americas in which they performed.
