“'Out of Sterno,' which strode the Gloucester stage last summer, was helmed with just the right light hand by local diva and director Paula Plum. Plum, again mistress of ceremonies, likewise balances disparate elements in “The Last Schwartz,” which is less whimsical and more earthbound than 'Sterno.'
