Description At the turn of the 20th century in New York City, Yiddish theater came of age in the playhouses of the Lower East Side, a hotbed of singers and musicians, composers and playwrights, cantors and comics who entertained hungry audiences of newly-arrived immigrants. Uptown, the bright lights of Broadway beckoned these ambitious artists to a golden land that could lead to Hollywood's silver screen. This creative surge was captured by Columbia Records, whose catalog not only chronicled Menashe Skulnik and Peisachke Burstein, Molly Picon and Yoselle Rosenblatt, Nellie Casman and David Medoff, but also witnessed the rise of Fannie Brice, Eddie Cantor, Sophie Tucker, Al Jolson, and eventually Cab Calloway, Benny Goodman, Gene Krupa, and even Xavier Cugat and Abbe Lane. They all drew righteously from the Yiddish music scene as it spread from Avenue A to the Great White Way.
