    Forces Cruel, Kindly and Shifty in Pinterland

    Ben Brantley

    November 10, 2003: A promising stretch of silence begins the Roundabout Theater Company's revival of Harold Pinter's ''Caretaker,'' which stars Patrick Stewart and Kyle MacLachlan. Of course, there would be silence, wouldn't there, this being a Pinter play. But there are ways and then there are ways to be still on a stage. And the young man sitting on the edge of a bed when the curtain rises on David Jones's dutiful, generally uninvolving production, which opened last night at the American Airlines Theater, knows exactly how to fill the quiet.
