Yale Rep Opens 2014-15 Season with Tom Stoppard's ARCADIA; Cast & Creative Team Set
YALE REPERTORY THEATRE opens its 2014-15 season with a new production of ARCADIA, the ravishingly romantic time-traveling masterpiece by Tom Stoppard, directed by James Bundy, October 3-25 at the University Theatre (222 York Street). Opening Night is Thursday, October 9.

ARCADIA features original music composed by Matthew Suttor, choreography by Emily Coates, scenic design by Adrian Martinez Frausto, costumes by Grier Coleman, lighting by Caitlin Smith Rapoport, sound by Tyler Kieffer, dialect coaching by Stephen Gabis, dramaturgy by Rachel Carpman, and stage management by James Mountcastle.
Amidst illicit passions and professional rivalries on an English country estate, a brilliant young pupil proposes a startling scientific theory well beyond her own comprehension. More than 200 years later, two academic adversaries try to piece together puzzling clues from the past in their quest for an elusive truth. ARCADIA is an achingly romantic and heartbreakingly funny waltz of the mind and the body, dancing across centuries.
ARCADIA by Tom Stoppard, the four-time Tony and Academy Award winning author of The Coast of Utopia, Rough Crossing (Yale Rep, 2008), and Shakespeare in Love, has been hailed as "the perfect blend of brains and emotion, wit and heartache" (The New York Times). Artistic Director James Bundy, whose Yale Rep credits include Hamlet, A Delicate Balance, and A Woman of No Importance, stages this new production of "the greatest play of our age" (The Independent).
Tickets for ARCADIA range from $20-98 and are available online at yalerep.org, by phone at (203) 432-1234, and in person at the Yale Rep Box Office (1120 Chapel Street, at York Street). Student, senior, and group rates are also available.
