I'll Say She was the Marx Brothers' first Broadway show - the culmination of 20 hard years traversing the country on Vaudeville. But unlike the two Broadway hits that followed, The Cocoanuts and Animal Crackers, it was never made into a movie. For 90+ years, it became almost forgotten, until diamond decided that it needed to be revived. This book is the story of his journey digging out remaining fragments of the script and music, and in the process, finding out more about himself as well.
This is a FUN book - Diamond infuses it with humor throughout, digging out facts about the original production that address many myths and rumors that sprung up about it over the decades. The humor continues when discussing his quest to actually revive the show for actual production, His search for his 'inner Groucho' is actually quite moving in a way.
This is a Must Read, not only for Marx Brothers fans, but for anyone that has had interest in the theater or Broadway.
One could revive the classic blurb Groucho wrote for a friends book, "I started laughing the minute I picked up this book - someday I intend to read it!", but read this - its well worth actually READING.
