In Little Me, Co-Directors Cy Feuer and Bob Fosse have provided not only professional polish but also sureness of tone: they shun lovability, yet avoid being hardboiled. The present temper of the better musicals is cool, detached, flip. The results may be frivolous, but unsynthetic frivolity on the rampagingly funny order of Little Me appears too rarely on Broadway. And it is more wonderful than getting a genie out of a bottle to have that full-grown master of comedy, Sid Caesar, released, at last, from that little 21-in. glass box.
