(March 3-6) ON THE RAZZLE If you're in the mood for some screwball comedy, Constellation Theatre Company has Tom Stoppard's "On The Razzle" for a few more nights in Northwest Washington. Two curious shop clerks from a small Austrian village help themselves to a day of sheer shenanigans in Vienna.

(March 3-April 2) REALLY DARK COMEDY And for some really, really dark comedy there's "Morgue Story", opening Wednesday night at Northwest's 1409 Playbill Cafe.
