Tom Stoppard's ARCADIA is now playing on Broadway for a limited engagement following a sold-out run in London. Directed by five-time Tony Award® nominee David Leveaux, ARCADIA is a masterpiece of misunderstanding and quest for knowledge resonating across centuries that John Lahr of The New Yorker calls "ONE OF THE GREAT PLAYS OF MY THEATERGOING LIFE."
April 1809, an elegant English country estate… Thomasina, a gifted pupil, proposes a startling theory well beyond her comprehension. All around her, the adults, including her tutor Septimus, are preoccupied with secret desires, illicit passions and professional rivalries.
Two hundred years later, academic adversaries Hannah and Bernard are piecing together puzzling clues, curiously recalling those events of 1809 in their quest for an increasingly elusive truth.
Arcadia features an exquisite cast including Margaret Colin, Billy Crudup, Raúl Esparza, Glenn Fleshler, Grace Gummer, Edward James Hyland, Byron Jennings, Bel Powley, Tom Riley, Noah Robbins, David Turner and Lia Williams. Crudup, who won a Tony Award for his performance in Stoppard’s The Coast of Utopia, made his Broadway debut in the 1995 production of Arcadia. Esparza has received four Tony Award nominations for starring roles on Broadway in Speed the Plow (2009), The Homecoming (2008), Company (2007) and Taboo (2004). Lia Williams made her Broadway debut in David Hare’s Skylight for which she received a Tony Award nomination and Olivier Award nomination.
Stoppard, one of the most celebrated and prolific playwrights of modern day, has been represented on Broadway with seventeen different productions to date including Rock ‘n’ Roll, Jumpers, The Real Thing, Travesties, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead and The Coast of Utopia, which received the most Tony Awards of any new play on Broadway. David Leveaux’s previous collaborations with Stoppard include the Tony Award-winning revival of The Real Thing and the Tony-nominated revival of Jumpers, receiving Tony Award nominations for his direction of both.
