“Sweat” – Review by Carol Moore

**** Recommended **** “Sweat”, the latest production at the Goodman Theatre has been a difficult play for me to review.  Been there, done that, got the T-shirt.  Lynn Nottage has written a gripping drama about ordinary people whose livelihood is dependent on one factory.  When management decides to make changes, things get ugly.  Judging by…
