'Of Good Stock' Off Broadway Review: Three More Sisters

'Of Good Stock' Off Broadway Review: Three More Sisters
BY MICHAEL SOMMERS
NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM
OFF BROADWAY REVIEW

Have you ever noticed that sisters tend to come in threes in famous plays?

There is Chekhov’s “Three Sisters,” of course. King Lear’s three different daughters. The trio known as “The Sisters Rosensweig.” And let’s not forget that batty Southern threesome in “Crimes of the Heart” and those middle-aged siblings who battle through “August: Osage County.”

Playwright Melissa Ross presents three more sisters in “Of Good Stock,” her pleasant -- though scarcely fresh or consequential -- new comedy-drama that Manhattan Theater Club currently offers at New York City Center Stage I.

The quarrelsome offspring of a celebrated he-man novelist and his long-suffering wife, both dead, the Stockton sisters and their mates gather at their family’s summer home on Cape Cod for what proves to be a tempestuous weekend.
