“Sweat”: Best Play Of The Year

The Financial Times has posted my review: ‘The best new American drama of 2015 is playing not in New York or Chicago or Los Angeles but in Ashland, Oregon, population 20,713. There, at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, Lynn Nottage’s “Sweat” is winding down a three-month run before resuming at the Arena Stage, in Washington, DC, in January. Why this thoroughly entertaining, intensely acted drama about factory workers in Reading, Pennsylvania hasn’t been announced yet for Broadway in the spring may have to do with awards-season politics or the play’s lack of a glamorous name.’ Pictured are Kimberley Scott and Jack Willis.
