**** Recommended **** Northlight Theatre’s production of “The Gospel according to Thomas Jefferson, Charles Dickens and Count Leo Tolstoy: Discord” is one of the more interesting plays I’ve seen in a while. While I’ve seen other plays that put unlikely people together for a conversation, the conversations haven’t been anywhere near as intelligent. I was fascinated, so I give “The Gospel according to …” 4 Spotlights.
