‘On the Razzle’ to dazzle audiences

    When Tom Stoppard’s On the Razzle opens its Feb. 9–18 run at the Tomlinson Theater, come prepared for farce of the finest order. And delight in the delicious language of this brilliantly written, award-winning comedy.
    It’s Stoppard’s adaptation of an 1842 farce by Viennese playwright Johann Nestroy that later inspired Thornton Wilder’s Matchmaker, which morphed into the musical Hello, Dolly!

    Stoppard’s Razzle returns to mid–19th–century Vienna where Weinberl and Christopher, two rascally grocery clerks, escape their humdrum existence and sneak off for a day and night of high adventure in the city. [more]


Temple Theaters will present Tom Stoppard’s comedy On the Razzle beginning Feb. 9. Bringing the characters to life are (clockwise, from top right) theater students Ryan Jones and Allyson Frick, both sophomores; Szoke Schaeffer, a senior; Kunal Nayyar, a third-year M.F.A. student; and Austin Durant, a senior.
