 “If you see (and you need to) [Richard Nelson’s] soul-stirring new play, SWEET AND SAD, the odds are that you you’ll experience the kind of shivery moments that come when someone articulates ideas that have been lurking in your head, unexpressed and perhaps even unrecognized…. Without ever steeping onto a soapbox, SWEET AND SAD ultimately dares to ask questions about our responses to September 11, that we might be afraid to tackle ourselves, even among friends, such as the relative definitions of victim and hero. At the same time Mr Nelson is asking us to consider what role art—and particularly theater—plays in how we assimilate the fears of loss that are always, on some level with us.”Ben Brantley, The New York Times   “As someone who mostly avoided the memorializing and marmoreal-izing of 9/11, I can think of no better tribute to the dead than this show, with its itchy frustrations with humanity, its deep sympathy for the same, and its absolute refusal to let itself, or us, off easy.”Scott Brown, New York Magazine   “Brilliant.”New Yorker
