“[The Real Thing] is about both love and art, and it is wise, witty, and astonishing through and through...Enthralling.” ―Alastair Macaulay, Financial Times on the London production
“You couldn't ask for a more deeply felt, or more deeply affecting, drama about love than this...The Real Thing is indeed the genuine article--a play of strength, grace, melancholy and wit.” ―Charles Spencer, The Daily Telegraph on the London production
“When it comes to putting erotic love in its place, no contemporary English playwright has done so with such illuminating rigour or eloquence as Tom Stoppard.” ―Nicholas De Jongh, Evening Standard on the London production

As Ros. and Guil. used Hamlet and Travesties used the Importance of Being Ernest, The Real Thing contains certain references to 'Tis Pity She's a Whore that make that Jacobean tragedy a helpful piece of background reading.
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE!!! ---re-release THAT version of the play on CD. It would make a fantastic addition to anyone's collection of spoken word recordings.
