Review On SWEAT

While riveting, the play is overly wordy and at times the action seems to drag, especially in the long first act. The strength is in the fine ensemble cast, ably directed by Lisa Peterson. Many of us have trouble getting into the mindset of people whose lives are so different from our own. Sweat helps us empathize with their humanity and come closer to feeling their pain.
