"...So, for every sentimental schmaltzspiele in the score of this solo revue-"Me and My Shadow," "More Than You Know" and the inevitable hankie-wringing French-import torcher "My Man"-Greenberg includes an upbeat patter song like "Always Leave Them Laughing When You Say Goodbye" or the vintage dialect ditty "Sadie Salome, Go Home" that launched not one, but two careers in 1909-Brice's and that of "Irv from the neighborhood" (or as goyishe musical mavens know him, Irving Berlin). Greenberg's script even takes us forward in time to include the barn-burning anthem "Don't Rain On My Parade" from the musical Funny Girl."
