Yiddish Actress Returns, Plans Warsaw Trip

New York probably will be only a fifteen-day stopover for her on her way to Warsaw, Jennie Goldstein, Yiddish actress, said Friday on her return here from a six months’ tour of South America. She is expecting a cable which will close negotiations with producers in the Polish city, she declared.

Miss Goldstein was enthusiastic over the success of her South American venture. She told of having played engagements in Buenos Aires, Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Montevideo. Although she is known among devotees of the Yiddish theatre chiefly as a tragedienne, she played comedy parts during her tour, she said.

The actress also revealed that on the way to Buenos Aires she had written a play, “Madame Pagliacci,” in collaboration with Meyer Schwartz. She described it as a comedy drama which tells the story of an actress’ life.

Miss Goldstein does not expect to play in New York again until after she has finished what she hopes will be a long stay in Warsaw. After that she intends to return here.

She declined to discuss Max Gabel, her former husband and manager, from whom she was divorced in 1930. She denied reports that while in South America she had become engaged to marry a wealthy radio chain stores head.
