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).

The Broadway cast includes 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.

Bel Powley, Tom Riley, and Lia Williams are appearing with the support of Actors’ Equity Association.  The producers gratefully acknowledge Actors’ Equity Association for its assistance of this production.

David Leveaux’s previous collaborations with Tom Stoppard include the Tony Award®-winning revival of The Real Thing (which also played at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre on Broadway) and the Tony®-nominated revival of Jumpers. For both productions, he received Tony Award® nominations for his direction. He also received Tony® nominations for his direction of Nine, Anna Christie, and A Moon for the Misbegotten.

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).

In a statement, playwright Sir Tom Stoppard said, “Since its first production in 1993, ARCADIA has become the play of mine which has been done the most in the U.S., so I’m really delighted that it’s coming back to New York. David Leveaux and I have had very good experiences on Broadway with Jumpers and The Real Thing, so I’m especially pleased that ARCADIA is returning under his direction.”

Billy Crudup, who received a 2007 Tony Award for his performance in Stoppard’s The Coast of Utopia, made his Broadway debut in the 1995 production of ARCADIA, in the role of ‘Septimus Hodge.’ In this upcoming production, he will play ‘Bernard Nightingale.’ Crudup also received Tony nominations for his work in The Pillowman (2005), and The Elephant Man (2002). Ral Esparza (Valentine Coverly) 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 (Hannah Jarvis) made her Broadway debut in David Hare’s Skylight for which see received a 1997 Tony Award nomination (and an Olivier Award nomination in London).

Bel Powley, Tom Riley, and Lia Williams are appearing with the support of Actors’ Equity Association.  The producers gratefully acknowledge Actors’ Equity Association for its assistance of this production.

David Leveaux’s previous collaborations with Tom Stoppard include the Tony Award-winning revival of The Real Thing (which also played at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre on Broadway) and the Tony-nominated revival of Jumpers.

ARCADIA is produced on Broadway by Sonia Friedman Productions, Roger Berlind, Stephanie P. McClelland, Scott M. Delman, Robert G. Bartner, Olympus Theatricals and Doug Smith.

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.

The creative team for ARCADIA will be announced at a later date.

The many awards ARCADIA has received include the Olivier Award and the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Play.

When ARCADIA opened at the Duke of York’s Theatre in the West End last year, London critics hailed Stoppard’s play and Leveaux’ direction. Here’s a sampling of what critics said:

“David Leveaux’s luscious revival of the Tom Stoppard play ARCADIA is an instant classic. Playgoers should be kept spinning for some months to come.”
-- Matt Wolf, The New York Times Online

“Tom Stoppard's ARCADIA is that rare thing: entertainment that thrills.  A feast of ideas that is sexy, sophisticated, and killingly funny. Leveaux’s assured revival confirms this is Stoppard’s finest play.”

-- Henry Hitchings, The Evening Standard

Tom Stoppard’s dazzling masterpiece, ARCADIA , is a glimpse of theatrical heaven. A poignant play with humor, wit and elegance that is much more than a comedy.  It is a literary detective story, a play that fills you with enthusiasm. David Leveaux directs a sharp, lucid production that is about transience and loss, as well as love and laughter.”

-- Charles Spencer, The Daily Telegraph

“David Leveaux's delicious production of Stoppard’s most brilliant play delivers clarity, and considerable thoughtfulness, amid the zinging repartee and sexual farce.

-- Emma John, The Observer

ARCADIA is one of Stoppard’s undisputed masterpieces. Leveaux’s poignant and touching revival gives pure uncomplicated pleasure on so many complicated matters.”

-- Michael Coveney, The Independent

ARCADIA gets richer with each viewing. You can’t ask for more in a play. Leveaux's excellent revival reminds us there is an abundance of cleverness, wit, poetry and passion in this moving and intriguing play.”

-- Michael Billington, The Guardian
