David Lee Israel Strasberg Biography:

Produced in 1901 in Budzanw, Poland, Austria Hungary (now Budanov, Ukraine), Lee Strasberg came to America at age 7. In 1931, Strasberg co-founded the Group Theatre, where he directed excellent experimental plays like Men in White (1933). After working in Hollywood (1941–1948), he returned to Nyc to become artistic director of the Actors Studio.

Produced on November 17, 1901, in Budzanw, Poland, Austria Hungary (now Budanov, Ukraine), Lee Strasberg went to become among the best playing teachers of the 20th century. Strasberg moved to The Big Apple along with his family in 1909. He first became involved in the theatre in the Chrystie Street Settlement House, playing in productions staged there.

Strasberg had a life-altering encounter in 1923, when he attended a performance directed by Constantin Stanislavski. Around now, Strasberg started working together with the Theatre Guild. He started out as an assistant stage manager and after that moved into playing. After retiring from the stage in 1929, Strasberg shortly created his own dramatic organization. While with the Group Theatre, Strasberg directed numerous plays, for example, Pulitzer Prize-winning play Men in White by Sidney Kingsley. The organization also created several works by Clifford Odets.
