The Yiddish Theater Looses a Star
Pearl Sacks, one of the stars of Yiddish Theater and Yiddish Radio (read your history books, kids ... this stuff used to be huge!) has died at the age of 80. Sacks appeared with none other than Fanny Brice and Boris Thomashefsky at the Parkway Theater in Brooklyn, as well as with Victor Parker on his radio show and in his acting troup when it went through the Catskills.
