"[citation needed], Adler's first marriage ended in divorce in 2002. [26] On the other, until his 50s, he was not hesitant to take advantage of his prowess as a dancer, and even occasionally took on roles that called for some singing, although by all accounts (including his own) this was not his forte. The New York Times review of Adler's performance was not favorable: in particular his naturalistic acting style was not what audiences of the period expected in a production of Shakespeare.

He survived another pogrom, but his family was financially ruined by the destruction of their possessions and the theft of their money. (They would later move one more time, to Riverside Drive.) Chief Rabbi Adler and his son and eventual successor Hermann Adler were present, and both, especially the younger rabbi, were favorably impressed. In February 2007, he and London had their first child together, Jacob Hayden Adler. Jacob Pavlovich Adler (born Yankev P. Adler;[1] February 12, 1855 – April 1, 1926)[2] was a Jewish actor and star of Yiddish theater, first in Odessa, and later in London and in New York City's Yiddish Theater District. [39], The troupe were left stranded in Riga. He had a voice role in Disney's animated film, Beauty and the Beast, as well as roles in television shows such as Law & Order.[2].

Adler wrote them to urge them to bring their troupe to Odessa. [19], In writing about this period in his memoir, Adler mentions attending and admiring performances by Israel Grodner, a Brody singer and improvisational actor who would soon become one of the founders of professional Yiddish theater. Total vindication was his aim." "[11], He grew up with both Jewish and Christian playmates, but also survived one of the Odessa pogroms around 1862. Adler was so insulted that the two did not speak for months, even though at the time they were living across a courtyard from one another, and could see into each other's St. Mark's Place apartments. He kazotskys, he soft shoes, he fandangos...He makes the oldest jokes fresh and funny!...It is impossible to watch him without being seized by his infectious spirit, his complete enjoyment in what he is doing...he brings performing brilliance to the stage! Frequently the works of the great contemporary playwrights—even Shaw, who was writing in English—would be staged in New York in Yiddish years, even decades, before they were ever staged there in English. His memoir is extremely unclear on the sequence of events, and hints at other affairs at this time. While the authorities determined that this was not Adler's fault, and the club was allowed to reopen, the crowds did not return; "the theater," he writes, "was so cold, dark, and empty you could hunt wolves in the gallery.

In Adler's own words, "Shylock from the first was governed by pride rather than revenge. Around this time Goldfaden appeared again and, after using an elaborate intrigue to demonstrate to the Adlers that Rosenberg had no loyalty to them, recruited them to his own troupe, which at the time appeared to be headed for a triumphant entry into Saint Petersburg. Goldfaden's troupe soldiered on for a time—to Minsk, to Bobruisk where they played mainly to Russian soldiers, and to Vitebsk, where he and Sonya ended up having to sue Goldfaden for their pay, and left to rejoin Rosenberg, who was playing in a tent theater in Nezhin. Adler fell out with Heine, initially over business; at this time Heine's marriage was also falling apart, and Sara Heine would eventually become Sara Adler. Still, under this same Goldfaden regime he had his first taste of real stardom when people in Chişinău camped in the courtyards awaiting performances. Adler stayed with Crazy for You for the entirety of its four-year run on Broadway. In 1882, he put together a troupe of his own with Keni Liptzin, and brought Rosenberg in as a partner. He recruited Jacob Gordin, already a well-respected novelist and intellectual, recently arrived in New York and eking out a living as a journalist at the Arbeiter Zeitung, precursor to The Forward. The marriage to a divorcée cost Feivel Adler (and therefore Jacob Adler) his status as a Kohen (priest).
