WhereEthel Barrymore Theatre
The Broadway revival of Tom Stoppard's Arcadia, starring Billy Crudup, plays its final performance at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre.
Arcadia is first set in April 1809 at an elegant English country estate. Thomasina, a gifted pupil, proposes a startling theory well 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 are piecing together puzzling clues, curiously recalling those events of 1809 in their quest for an increasingly elusive truth.
