Arcadia is a wonderful play, especially for those who like to stretch their minds. It is witty, romantic and very cleverly plotted. It is set in one house during two time periods, the mid 19th Century and the late 20th century. It explores the...continued

I really, really love this play - however, the affected British accents by the American actors and the nosebleed seats offered by Goldstar made it VERY difficult to hear and understand. Sadly, a handful of people around us were walking out a...continued

The playwright incredibly blends a hilarious script with serious discussions of current science and math philosophical concepts (and trends in landscaping as well). More substance with more laughs.

The play was very well written and the acting was superb..the venue was beautiful...but up in the high seats my knees were a bit cramped....we went down after the show to the ground floor seats to test them out and they had more leg room...more...continued

The play was enjoyable, but long. Unfortunately uncomfortable seating for almost three hours stole from the experience.

Unfortunately we attended the Saturday, May 25th matinee. Early on, Andy Murray fled from the stage, the curtain was dropped and what followed was an hour and twenty minute long intermission. Once the play resumed it was obvious that the...continued

We attended a matinee. Good production of Arcadia, my favorite Stoppard play. A few times I couldn't quite understand the words being spoken due to the actor's volume/accent/slight mumbling but mostly it wasn't an issue. One of the lead roles...continued

Brilliant production of an outstanding play. The cast is incredible. The script is amazing. Saw this back in 95 at ACT. This production was even better.

Play on words was a wonder. Seats fit for midgets made for discomfort.

The actors were all amazing and did justice to the beautifully thought-provoking AND comical piece. Definitely a must-see.

This was a very cerebreal play. At times it was hard to follow the dialogue and plot and seemed a bit slow going. Wish I had read more about the plot before seeing the play. But at the end of it all I just didn't care.

Arcadia is one of my favorite plays, and while this production was good, it wasn't great. Definitely worth the money, especially if you sit in the cheap seats and I would recommend anyone not familiar with the play to see it because it is just...continued

Fantastic play! Tom Stoppard fans rejoice. Especially if new to his plays, but even if not, get there early in plenty of time to read the program, as it will help orient you to the various themes Stoppard touches upon in this fast-paced,...continued

Niether my date nor myself cared about the laborious path to a plot by intermission, so we left.
The joy in the play may be about figuring out why these people (in two different eras) were so wrapped up in something so inconsequential. Maybe if...continued

The production was fine, although the fake English accents were off every now and then: "Thackeray" pronounced as if there were a thacker-bee, for instance. (It's correctly pronounced as if it ended in -ey. However, the casting could hardly have...continued
