BWW Reviews: ON THE RAZZLE Cast Dives into Stoppard's Farcical Hilarity Full ForceBWW Reviews: ON THE RAZZLE Cast Dives into Stoppard's Farcical Hilarity Full Force
by Shari Barrett - Oct 12, 2014

Playwright Tom Stoppard has stated that his 'primary concern is to make the tale as comic an entertainment as possible.' Stoppard's farce consists of two hours of slapstick shenanigans, mistaken identities, misdirected orders, malapropisms, double entendres, and romantic complications. There is no great earthshaking social message here, just impossible situations, incredible physicality, and loads of laughs. (more...)
