Preview performances of Tom Stoppard's ARCADIA, directed by David Leveaux, will begin on Saturday, February 26 at 8PM at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre (243 West 47th Street) on Broadway. The play had previously announced a first performance a day earlier, Friday, February 25. The official opening remains unchanged on Thursday, March 17.
Tom Stoppard's ARCADIA will return to New York this spring for a limited engagement in an acclaimed new production, directed by five-time Tony Award nominee David Leveaux. ARCADIA arrives on Broadway from the West End where this production became an instant sold out hit in 2009 and was deemed "Stoppard's most brilliant play" (The Observer), "one of the most exquisite plays of the 20th century" (The Independent), and "sexy, sophisticated, and killingly funny." (The Evening Standard).
ARCADIA will begin previews at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre (243 West 47th Street) on Friday, February 25, 2011 with an opening night set for Thursday, March 17, 2011. Tickets for this limited engagement are on sale through Sunday, June 19, 2011. Tickets are on sale now online at Telecharge.com or by calling (212) 239-6200.
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.
