A moving emotional experience! Its Pulitzer prize is well deserved. A complex script, which left me slightly confused after the first act. But everything became crystal clear during the second act, which led to a powerful gut-wrenching...continued

The performances and sets were excellent. The play itself seemed overly reluctant to take a stand as to why these workers in Reading were suffering so much or what they might do about their plight. The "moral" seems to be that people being...continued

I think it was a good story, but it moved very slowly. A lot of the story line could have been omitted and this play reduced to a 90 minute production. It would have been more impactful. Flashbacks and foreshadowing are techniques that work on...continued

Loved it is the wrong descriptor, but it is the only way to give the play Five Stars. Powerful. Thought-provoking. Wrenching. These are far better words to describe "Sweat". Robert Falls staged an exceptional rendering of Lynn Nottage's Pulitzer...continued

This is a play that everyone should see - especially corporate tycoons who do not realize the impact their decisions have on real people. It is a very real look at how the fast-paced corporate world impacts the lives of everyone - not just the...continued

The set and the acting were well done but I guess I was looking for something a little more artsy or high brow. This could have been a tv series or movie just as well, think of a dark Roseanne. The majority of the story centers around a bar and...continued

This was an excellent play! Funny and heartbreaking, it captures the angst of factory workers at the beginning of the 21st century when the manufacturing sector shed jobs at a dizzying rate. Wonderful acting and an engaging script.

The play is very thought provoking...how assumption are so dangerous about other people; how each person affects others, the role of friendship, alcoholism, power and control....
Acting was superb and couldn't have asked for better seats!!!

Really great acting and the storyline was superb. If I had one complaint it would be the excessive cursing. I understand the need for authenticity but felt it was way too over the top and cheapened an otherwise really solid script.
