Description: This London hit is a free adaptation of the 19th Century farce by Johann Nestroy that provided the plot for Thornton Wilder's "The Merchant of Yonkers," which led to "The Matchmaker," which led to "Hello, Dolly." The story is basically one long chase, chiefly after two naughty grocer's assistants who, when their master goes off on a binge with a new mistress, escape to Vienna on a spree. "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).
