    It's great to see Steinberg performing again at the La Jolla Playhouse as a kind of framing device for Barry Avrich's skillfully directed documentary.

    The doc (directed by Barry Avrich) does a nice job of taking in the totality of Steinberg’s career, including how a favorable New York Times review launched him, how Burt Reynolds used his clout to get him into directing (beginning with the movie “Paternity”) and why he gravitated toward moving behind the camera as a shift from the grueling nature of the comedy-club scene.
