Liptzin, Keni


Liptzin, Keni
(1856-1918)
   The Yiddish tragedienne had acted with Jacob Adler and others in Europe and traveled with him to New York in the mid-1880s. Small of stature but powerful in her intensity, she emerged as a leading lady, specializing in plays by Jacob Gordin, and established her own Liptzin Theatre. Supported by her husband Michael Mintz, a publisher, she did not need to pander to popular appeal and thus became Gordin's ideal actress.
