Seeking info on Bertha Kriesberg Yiddish Players & actors Sylvia & Jacob Grossman #yiddish


I'm trying to find more information on my great-aunt and great-uncle Sylvia and Jacob Grossman, both Yiddish actors in the early 20th century.

In particular, I have learned that Sylvia was performing with Bertha Kriesberg Yiddish Players when she died on April 19, 1935 in Paterson, NJ during a performance of "Mirele Afros".

I'd like to find out more about the Bertha Kriesberg theater group, and if possible, the role Sylvia was playing in Mirele Afros when she died, and whether Jacob was also acting with that group and in that play, and where they are touring. So, any playbill or newspaper announcement or other advertisement would be super to find.

I know that all I am seeking may not be available, but I will be grateful for whatever information can be unearthed.

Thanks in advance for any help anyone can give me.
