UnknownAre you watching Amazon’s The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel? An American period comedy-drama piece this two time Golden Globe winner is created by Amy Sherman-Palladino and stars Rachel Brosnahan. The writing is superb. Tony Shalhoub is a total delight. Luke Kirby as Lenny Bruce casts a charming spell. Michael Zegen, Marin HInkle, Kevin Pollack, Caroline Aaron and Bailey De Young are a wonderfully funny and supportive cast. Alex Borstein as Susie Myerson is honest, funny and truly sublime. Rachel Brosnahan as Miriam Maisel, a jewish housewife who discovers she has a knack for stand-up comedy is the ultimate leading lady. She leads due to her astounding talent, sincerity, brilliance, commitment, energy and transformative power. Embracing the essence of the period and a woman’s innate struggle Rachel Brosnahan is not preforming a role, but inhabiting a being. I am struck by how fiercely the truth echoes. The laughter and revelations just keep coming.
