I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised. I went into it knowing two things: Lenny Bruce was in a Bob Fosse film, All That Jazz, and that Ms. Rivers was playing Bruce's mother. I came away laughing with friends about how funny the play was, and agreeing with the whole group of us that as funny as she was, Joan was even more compelling in the dramatic moments.
That was the one and only time I got to see the comic genius in person. And I am all the better for it.
