Content: Partial translation: 'An evening of art and talent to benefit the Dinaburg Fraternal Aid Society. Drama in four acts by Jacob Gordin; Mr. Jacob P. Adler as Lamekh, Mme. S[ara] Adler as Liza. If you want to see something fine and elevated but also realistic, don't miss the great artist Mr. Jacob P. Adler, alone in his generation, who gives an exceptional performance in the challenging role of the wild man, in which he outdoes even himself. The greatest critics have proclaimed that Mr. Adler defines in this role what acting is all about. Tickets available from Wolf Broide at the sausage store, 242 Broome Street. Come while you have a chance. It is not every day that you get to see something like this, just Monday, February 17.'
