50 words: SWEET AND SAD by Richard Nelson at Third Rail Rep

Polished, perfectly crafted production with a top cast. But is material worth our investment? Nelson clearly enamored of history, music, poetry, Chekhov. Does it work on stage? Sometimes. Too much reality (which we all inhabit 24/7) and not enough theatricality. Dramatically inert. New York focus tiring. Even for New Yorkers.
