Director's Notes: "As I studied the text, I found it so delightful and winning that I was surprised it wasn't being done by every regional theatre in the country! The play began to summon a lot of associations in my imagination. I can't help recalling screwball film comedies of the thirties like 'My Man Godfrey', or 'Bringing Up Baby' , whose comedy seems very similar to the wacky world of 'On the Razzle'. But the play does have its kernel of human truth as well--everyone needs a razzle or two in life."
