Content: Der Yudisher Kenig Lier [The Jewish King Lear] by Mr. Jacob Gordin Mr. Jacob Adler as King Lear, Mr. [Berl] Bernstein as Shammai Windsor Theatre, Thursday, October 13, 1898. Partial translation: 'A sea of diamonds! 'What, more diamonds?' we hear you say with a smirk. 'It must be some new play, but what of it' 'No, friend, this time you are wrong. We tell you in all seriousness that we have put together something the like of which you have never seen before, even in your dreams. Listen, now, to what we have for you: The Jewish King Lear, for the benefit of the Hebrew Legal Aid and Protective Association.'
