Biography

Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Burr performed in little theater and in skits with the vaudeville comedy team of Smith and Dale. By the late 1950s, she was working on Broadway and appeared in "I Can Get It for You Wholesale," the show in which Barbra Streisand first gained national attention.[1] Later, Burr replaced Kaye Medford as the mother of Fanny Brice (played by Streisand) in Funny Girl (1968).[1]

Burr worked regularly in small theaters and dinner theaters and in touring companies of such musicals as "Fiddler on the Roof", in which she played, at different times, Yente and Tevye's long-suffering wife, Golde. But, moving to Hollywood, she also found steady work as a character actress in motion pictures and on television.[1][2]

(1970), Frasier, The Senusous Lion (1973), Chinatown (1974), The New, Original Wonder Woman (1975), Mary Jane Harper Cried Last Night (1977), Cover Girls (1977), Like Normal People (1979), and 3 Ninjas (1992).
