Actress. A major figure in Yiddish Theater, she is best known for the musical acts she produced and staged as the matriarch of "The Four Bursteins", a troupe composed of herself, her husband and their twin children, Michael and Susan. Touring internationally, The Four Bursteins made a name bringing what Lux termed "classical Jewish opera" to Yiddish-speaking enclaves of South Africa, South America, Europe, Australia, Israel and the United States. She began her career at age 7 on stage at Maurice Schwartz's Yiddish Art Theatre, located in New York City. She performed until she was well into her 80s and even ventured into film, sharing the screen with Antonio Banderas in the 2001 film "The Body". She died of natural causes at age 86.
