Three actors set out to cram all of the season's tales, traditions, carols and merriment into one quick show in Every Christmas Story Ever Told (And Then Some). A madcap romp through the holiday season, this two-act take on everything Christmas celebrates the holiday in much the same way The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) takes a lighthearted -- and fast-paced -- look at old Bill's back catalog. The Grinch, Rudolph, Frosty the Snowman, Charlie Brown, Ebenezer Scrooge and George Bailey are just a few of the familiar Yuletide characters who make appearances. Learn More

Very entertaining performance; some dialogues were quite fast-paced and not all the words were understood, but the overall development of the story was achieved very well.
For most of the performance, the feel of being at a very good high school play would be an accurate description; however, regardless of the curtain timing mistakes, or the very simple, home made props, the play was worth the small price.
Quotes & Highlights
- "While preserving the beautiful intricacies of this construction, Stoppard has embellished Razzle with a dazzle of verbal wit an unremitting firework display of puns, crossword puzzle tricks and sly sexual innuendos." --London Daily Telegraph
- "Apart from Jumpers and The Importance of Being Earnest there may be no script in English funnier than On the Razzle." --London Observer
- “Anyone who has read or seen work by Stoppard knows that he has mastered the English language in a way that few playwrights can boast of, and it is lovers of language who will appreciate this piece the most. In On The Razzle, the jokes come one after another, with few breaks in between. The witticisms are generally based on deft malapropisms and puns, some of which are groan-worthy and some of which fall flat because they simply pass by too quickly. But most of the jokes hit the perfect pitch, inducing hearty laughs and ensuring a good time for all.“ --DCist
- "In Tom Stoppard's plays, ideas can just as much be objects of aesthetic perception and delight as can sunsets or roses. Ideas can be elegant; they can seduce, tease, or strike comic poses; they can rhyme and be set ringing at selected overtones. From ideas thus at play we ask what we ask of any imaginative use of language: inevitability and surprise." --The Antioch Review
