Three-and-half hours is a long time to spend "In Sherwood," no matter how exciting the derring-do of Robin and his Merry Men. In Joe Patrick Ward's new musical version at the Granada Theatre, the Robin Hood legend is sitting on so many theatrical fences that a fall from any of them would be welcome. After cutting 90 minutes out of his show, Ward will have to decide whether to be period--when he's stilted and pretentious--or modern--when he's funny but derivative.
