Opening Nights

ON THE RAZZLE Opens at the Very Little Theatre Friday, March 28.

This Tom Stoppard farce, fluffy and ridiculous as a cloud castle, brought belly laughs to the Oregon Shakespeare Fest last year. It requires perfect timing and pitch-perfect acting not to fall completely off the edge into the ridiculous. Let’s hope the area’s oldest community theater and director Chris Pinto rein in any overacting and present, instead, the charms of this goofy-smart comedy. Show dates are March 28-30 and April 3-6, 10-13 & 17-19. Completely reasonable tix at 344-7751.
