On the decision to offer this offer to increase the number of affordable tickets, the producers said, "We are delighted at the Tony® nomination for Best Revival and for Billy's nomination for his performance representing this remarkable ensemble. This has been a remarkable season on Broadway with some really great new plays and several outstanding revivals and they have all arrived in New York this spring. The competition for the audience dollar has never been tougher and we feel it's important that no one miss David Leveaux's brilliant production because they cannot afford a ticket and we hope people will take this opportunity to see one of the season's most captivating productions."
Directed by five time Tony Award® nominee David Leveaux, ARCADIA opened on Thursday, March 17 to acclaim from critics. Ben Brantley of The New York Times said, "Feel the heat rising, Arcadia is propelled by genuine, panting passion. Experience the ingenuity and seamlessness of Stoppard's time-traveling craftsmanship, but also feel the emphatic imagination brought to characters you may wind up realizing you never fully grasped before," John Lahr of The New Yorker said "Arcadia is one of the great plays of my theatergoing life," Scott Brown of New York Magazine called it "an exquisite revival of Stoppard's masterpiece," and Melissa Rose Bernardo of Entertainment Weekly said "It's a fantastic evening. Love, sex, literature, and the second law of thermodynamics collide in Arcadia."
The production has received Tony Award® nominations for Best Revival of a Play and Best Featured Actor in a Play (Billy Crudup). In addition, the production received a Drama Desk nomination for Outstanding Featured Actor in a Play (Tom Riley), Drama League nominations for Distinguished Revival of a Play and two nominations for Distinguished Performance (Billy Crudup, Raúl Esparza), and a Theatre World Award for Outstanding Broadway Debut (Grace Gummer).

ARCADIA is set in April 1809 in a stately home in Derbyshire. Thomasina, a gifted pupil, proposes a startling theory, 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 (Lia Williams and Billy Crudup) are piecing together puzzling clues, curiously recalling those events of 1809, in their quest for an increasingly elusive truth.
ARCADIA is produced on Broadway by Sonia Friedman Productions, Roger Berlind, Stephanie P. McClelland, Scott M. Delman, Nicholas Quinn Rosenkranz, Robert G. Bartner, Olympus Theatricals and Doug Smith, in association with Janine Safer Whitney.
The creative team for ARCADIA includes: Hildegard Bechtler (set), Gregory Gale (costumes), Donald Holder (lighting), David Van Tieghem (sound), Corin Buckeridge (music) and Jodi Moccia (choreography).
ARCADIA performance schedule: Tuesday at 7pm, Wednesday at 2pm & 8pm, Thursday at 7pm, Friday at 8 pm, Saturday at 2pm & 8pm and Sunday at 3pm.
