Arcadia tickets are available for the new Broadway revival of Tom Stoppard's original work. The first preview began on February 26, 2011 with an official opening date scheduled for March 17 at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre. The latest production is set for a limited run, closing on June 19. Arcadia is an intriguing story about relationships past and present between order and disorder as well as knowledge. The play boasts a talented cast, including Billy Crudup and Tom Riley, as well as many others. "Arcadia" is based on the recent 2009 London revival which found great success.

The Play

Arcadia tickets bring the viewer to a setting in Sidley Park, an English country house. The story starts in 1809 moves to 1812 and then jumps to the present day (1993 in the original debut). Two modern scholars and the house's current residents become connected with those who lived in the house some 180 years before. As the characters begin to uncover a mysterious event the truth about what happened in the past becomes revealed. The set uses one large table, which is used for the characters in both time periods (past and present). The props are not removed for changes in the time periods such as mugs, books, quill pens, laptop computers and so on. The use of this interesting effect helps blur the reality of past and present.

Stoppard's play on the surface could be classified in the drama genre. A deeper look into the work shows modern styles of tragedy and comedy, especially among it's "noble" characters. The comedic tones are prominent throughout the writing and strong within the dialogue and character development. Arcadia is more of a "realist"play in structure. Quite a change in style for Stoppard, the realism is present in the "true-to-life" characters, real setting and probable plot scenario.


Arcadia tickets first sold for the premier at the Royal National Theatre in London on April 13, 1993. The original production was under the direction of Trevor Nunn and featured Rufus Sewell as Septimus Hodge. The play won the 1993 Olivier and Evening Standard Awards for Best Play. The production eventually landed a home in New York at the Vivian Beaumont Theatre in March 1995. Director Trevor Nunn stayed on but the entire cast changed. It starred Billy Crudup as Septimus and the Broadway debut for Paul Giamatti in the role of Ezra Chater. The "Broadway"production won the New York Drama Critics' Circle Award, and was nominated for the 1995 Tony Award for Best Play. In 1996–1997 the first regional theater production was mounted at the Arena Stage in Washington, D.C.

On May 27, 2011 director David Leveaux opened the revival at London's Duke of York's Theatre. The production saw success recouping its production costs before closing on September 12. The return of Arcadia tickets on Broadway includes Leveaux as director for the plays short run. Full cast includes Margaret Colin (Lady Croom), Billy Crudup (Bernard Nightingale), Raúl Esparza (Valentine Coverly), Glenn Fleshler (Captain Brice), Grace Gummer (Chloë Coverly), Edward James Hyland (Jellaby), Byron Jennings (Richard Noakes), Bel Powley (Thomasina Coverly), Tom Riley (Septimus Hodge), Noah Robbins (Gus Coverly/Augustus Coverly), David Turner (Ezra Chater), and Lia Williams (Hannah Jarvis).

Arcadia is a clever rich work which brings together wonderful ideas and high comedy. The play is steeped in wit and emotion as well as intellect and language.
