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...continued

The play was really funny and the actors were great. I was previously unaware of Newnan theater, so I am grateful to Goldstar for this experience.

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
