Marumo-san’s acting was so powerful and charming that I laughed and cried every time.
From my experience watching Lenny Bruce perform in the 60’s, Marmo’s performance felt like a revival of Lenny’s.
The show was perfect.. the lighting and sound were perfect. The show is impeccably executed and reflects the experience and prodigious talent of director Joe Mantegna, who many know for his lead roles in CBS dramas. Criminal mind.
