Notes
Content: Partial translation: 'Benefit for the Stuchiner Young Men's Benevolent Association. Tragedy in five acts by Shakespeare, adapted by Mr. [Boris] Thomashefsky. Mr. Thomashefsky as Hamlet, Mme. [Sophia] Karp as Ophelia. A night to remember for all theatergoers and culture aficionados. Every Yiddish theater holds a benefit nightly and the sponsor looks for some old play that the public has seen many times before. But we have spared neither energy nor money but have sought out for our coreligionists the very best drama in the world � and one that is seldom performed. The ear can listen to it time and again and the eye can never be sated with watching the beautiful scenes and Mr. Tomashefsky's extraordinary performance.'
