I so agree...

...about the '92 revival! Not particularly about its Jewishness (I was probably too young and Midwestern to think about that back then), but I thought the show was vastly inferior to the several regional/community productions I had seen by that point, or the high school production in which I was the definitive Rusty Charlie.😁 The reason I didn't love it was that while the world of Runyon is populated by larger than life characters that can border on cartoonish, there is an earthiness to the characters. I didn't think anyone in the Lane revival seemed anything besides cartoony. Which makes the audience not really care about the characters. I'm a fan of everyone involved in that production, but I thought then (and still think when I listen to that recording or watch clips online) that it was much less than the sum of it's parts.
