“The Christmas Carol”
Reviewed 27 July 2013

See it every year and would not miss it. I am slightly biased being a student there and get cheap tickets but have seen several things there and always enjoy it. Everyone should see the Christmas Carol its really good and puts you in the spirit of Christmas

“Small but ambitious”
Reviewed 28 June 2013

CBT puts on several productions throughout the school year, and I think they always try to find thought-provoking material (especially at the indie-feeling Clarence Brown Lab Theatre). Save $50 and see a show here rather than the gorgeous but expensive Tennessee Theatre.

“Great date night!”
Reviewed 13 May 2013

Went to the performance of On the Razzle at the Clarence Brown. We ordered our tickets on line so, no waiting, just showed our e-ticket at the door and walked right in. Great seats on the fourth row. Very good performance, very fast-paced, had to really pay attention to catch all the puns. At times the volume was a little off...maybe that's one reason why i missed some of the comments, but overall a great evening out.

“An afternoon of pure pleasure!”
Reviewed 9 May 2013

My husband and I regularly travel to the theater for performances and really enjoy every one of them. The spring production of On the Razzle was exceptional. Lots of laughs and split second repartee. Clarence Brown provides stimulating conversations for this long married couple! I recommend you check out any performance. There's never a bad one! And yes, the Sunday matinee talk back where we get ot talk to the actors and producer is knock-out wonderful!

“Clarence Brown Theatre”
Reviewed 6 May 2013

CBT on the University of Tennessee Knoxville campus is as close to Broadway as you can get without the high prices and parking problems of the "big" city". On the Razzle, the current show is like the Marks Brothers meet the Three Stooges with a touch of Monty Python thrown in. If you like your comedy broad and fast with lots of over the top acting this is the show for you. My wife and I loved it.
A very fun and funny evening!

Dear James,

Thanks so much for your review of the Clarence Brown Theatre's "On the Razzle!" We appreciate the great comments. It's funny you should mention "Monty Python"...we are doing "Spamalot" next season. We hope you will come back to see it!
