Notes Molly Picon brought to the stage a unique blend of Yiddish verve, wit and khutspeh crossed with American musical comedy sparkle and technique. This collection contains hits from some of her most popular Second Avenue shows, ranging in mood from the little-boy troubles of Yankele to the hilarious burlesque of the great Boris Tomashefsky.
