Remembering the Comedians


Walking into Lillian Lux's Lower East Side home in New York is like entering a museum of Yiddish theater. The apartment holds a photo of Lux and her husband -- the late Yiddish actor Pesach'ke Burstein -- from an appearance in Argentina in the late 1930s. There also is a picture of Lux, Burstein and their actor-son, Mike, who now lives in Los Angeles, at a benefit for wounded Israeli soldiers.
