Moshe Leib-Halpern had this to say about Yiddish theater in America:
"There was once a vulgarian who went to synagogue … when he wanted to weep, and to a bawdyhouse … when he wanted to be gay. But once, when he wanted to weep and be gay at the same time, he put up a theater … that combined the synagogue and the bawdyhouse into one."
