A much of a muchness

Charles Isherwood articulates
why I was underwhelmed when I read Tom Stoppard’s trilogy The Coast of Utopia:

In my view much of The Coast of Utopia consists of great chunks of erudition and history untransformed by the playwright’s imagination and craft into a compelling play.

I would still like to see the piece, it’s just that I won’t be scurrying up to New York to see it.
