    Still Talking, as if Time Paused

    Ben Brantley

    June 28, 2011: A CARDINAL rule of a certain kind of sentimental comedy is that you can't keep a feisty old man down. Punch him, knife him, run him over with a tank or -- God forbid -- stuff him into a nursing home. He will still spring back to his feet, like Rasputin defying his assassins. Seasoned theatergoers know that each resurrection of said feisty old man must be acknowledged with a congratulatory round of applause.
